“Never again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We've been coming to Playa for over a decade and always went to EZ for U-Wisconsin or Packer games. We'd bring in 15-25 people each time. Last time in Playa, they had NHL on every TV with only a dozen guests in the bar. We came down with our group of 15 and asked if we could have one TV for the Badger game, they said "sorry, the NHL is on" for a over priced bar with mediocre food, you'd think they would try to be a little accommodating. I'm asking all big ten fans to boycott this place. Go to tequila barrel and sit in the huge back room in comfort. Loved that place! They know good service.

“Great place to watch a game !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

We were in Playa Del Carmen from May 6th th the 13th . We watched 4 Leaf games at this bar , it was by far the best part of our trip . Great atmosphere , great service . The only negative was they have no Leaf jersey on their wall . I will be sending one down to fix that problem .
Thanks EZ for the great times !!!

“Good place to watch a game”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We were in the area during March Madness and needed a good place to watch the Michigan game. We ended up at EZ's and had a very enjoyable time! Lots of TV's, good sound and nice staff. There was a decent selection of food- not a ton, mostly "mexican pub" style food. The wings and nachos were great! Unfortunately, the back part of the establishment doesn't have ventilation, so if someone is smoking, it gets very smokey really quick. Good location too, right on 5th Ave.

“March madness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We were in Mexico during March madness and needed a place to watch the games. This was it!! We had the front of the bar (open to the street) with three of the four tv's turned to the game we (and other groups) wanted. One tv and the largest one in the back were on hockey, but as another reviewer said, first come first served. I liked being in the front where we could people watch in addition to watching the game. We have appetizers on one visit - quesadilla, potato skins, shrimp cocktail - all were good. The next visit we had loaded nachos. Those were very good, although skimped on chips a little (not a common occurrence). The buckets of beer were great. Overall, a fun place, with friendly servers.

“Good Enough for March Madness”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

I came to Playa the first weekend of March Madness, and if you're like me and have to have your sports, then this isn't a bad place to go. There aren't a ton of places where you can catch basketball games and get a fairly good meal too in Playa. The meal was pretty good (skip the burgers), and there were plenty of tv's along with a huge projector. Cold beer and fun people to watch the games with isn't a bad way to spend a couple hours while ducking the sun.
