The servers are usually running from table to kitchen. Fast service. We like the fish and the chimichangas. Took my 95 year old mother there for birthday. She loved the special attention.

I love El Azul! Quick service, great servers, wonderful food. I love the Santa Fe chicken, salsa and chips, burritos, just about anything.

You can always count on El Azul to be consistently fast & friendly service, and their food consistently tastes the same (so no surprises). It's definitely a staple in Pikeville.

The food is great. The service is super fast. I don't like the new building they moved to. The parking is annoying too.

This is a local favorite of mine! They always have great food! The steak fajitas are the absolute best!

We have eaten here many, many times. Overall, the food is pretty good for what it is. Every now and then you will get something that is not that well cooked. However, overall, it is the best Mexican restaurant in the area.

We went to the restaurant in Prestonsburg. We're from Georgia where there are MANY Mexican restaurants, and this was one of best I have tried. When we return, we will definitely go back.

Really good food, never had a bad experience. I love the fish tacos here. Coming from California, I wish that the burritos were a little different, but they're still traditional and delicious.

Went there a second time in hopes of a better experience and the food was just as bad as the first time. I think carpet in any restaurant is just nasty and always have a bad smell. Not impressed, won't go again.

Thank CharlestoTravelNurse
