“Great New Restaurant in Playa del Carmen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We've eaten twice at this new spot in town and enjoyed it both times. So far we've only tried the hot dogs, which are fabulous Chicago style dogs with tasty poppy seed buns & all the trimmings. All sandwiches come with very good skinny french fries (the way we like them) and a beer or soft drink. One of these days we're going to go back and try the steaks and some of the many other menu items, including the steak sandwich and the Reuben sandwich in a puff pastry. They have a good-sized bar, lots of TVs and offer sports channels in the evening. While we were there we saw an ad for their Superbowl Party which sounded like fun. Some nights they have live music. We met the owner who is very friendly and caring, and we look forward to all of the changes and improvements he is planning--including pizzas in their new wood oven. Don't miss this spot if you're in Playa.

Thank You very much for your great review. We are open for breakfast at 8am and our Pizza oven has been operational for over a week. We are currently perfecting our thin crust pizza. I just love the decor of the Luna Blue.... just might have to make a personal pizza delivery:-)

“Legit Chicago experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

My wife just happened upon this place just off 5th ave. I tried the Italian beef and my wife tried the the hotdog. Truly the Chicago taste we were missing. The owner was really friendly and receptive to suggestions. He is going to start making deep dish piazzas. We will be back.

Always good to hear from a fellow Chicagoan! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Our pizza oven has been operational for over a week and we definitely enjoyed breaking the oven in! Thin crust as well as Deep Dish. This is Chicago pride here :-) Can't wait to have you back in Playa del Carmen.
