Saw how great the reviews were and wanted to stop in while on vacation with the family. There was quite a bit of a wait- like 25 minutes, but there was a bar you can grab a drink if you want while you wait. So, you can imagine with that kind of a wait, it was packed and loud! With... More

This place has a wait if you don't get there early, but it's worth it. The Enchiladas De Camarones are the best I've ever had. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Make sure that the table side guacamole is ordered. It's great and they literally make it at your table. They peel the avocados what the table... More

This little hole in the wall has some of the best mexican food you will find anywhere! Be careful with the margaritas - I had 2 and should have definitely stayed with just 1, they don't mince the amount of tequila they add....:)

The service was fantastic - the hostess, waitstaff and bartender all went out of their way to make us feel welcome and take great care of us. The food was so good we ate there 2 nights in a row, and tried to make it 3 (but they are closed on Sundays)! My husband had the grouper topped with butter-sauteed... More

Smaller dining area with amazing authentic Mexican dishes. A little higher priced but way worth it! Service was great, food was even better :)

One of our favorite places to eat in Port A. Red snapper was delicious as were the grilled veggie side dishes. Service was also excellent. Highly recommend!

There are many places to eat in Port Aransas, however, we have been going to our place there for 20 years and one of our very favorites is the La Playa Mexican Grille. Their crab and/or shrimp enchiladas are the absolute best I have ever eaten - fresh seafood and great sauce. They also have a variety of margaritas that... More

The food was good, dining room small, service a bit slow. We went at 5:00 so we were a bit surprised with the service. I would go back.

Wow, I am serious as a heart attack; this typical Port A beach place is a DO NOT MISS restaurant. We have been permanent Port A residents since January, and this is our first time here. Wife and I both had the "all you can eat" fajitas. The meal came with beef (marinated), grilled chicken, and huge, perfectly cooked grilled... More
