Restaurant details
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I have been eating at Playa Azul for years and find that it is the best Mexican in town. I always order the Chorizo burrito which isn't listed on the menu. Love the fresh tortilla chips and salsa. Try the salsa verde, it's great. Try it, you'll like it.

The Carne Asada is great! The rice is tasty, the beans are plentiful, the salsas are very good. The service can be slow as it does get busy there but it's because the food it so good. Definitely love the green salsa! No difficulties with language every hispanic there speaks English well. One small complaint, the flour tortillas are small and need a little more toasting when heated. It's clean and has attractive decor and the wait staff are friendly and accurate.

I love the food here! I always get chicken enchiladas and they are always great! There is never a wait we are always seated right after we walk in the door. The wait staff are friendly, polite, and really good about refilling drinks, chips and salsa. The chips and salsa are really good too! They have always got my order correct. The wait for food is not very long and it's always hot and delicious! One of the things I really like about this place is that not alot of people seem to know it's there. It's in a mini-strip mall and it's not easily seen so it's never packed. You can easily get in and out for an hour long lunch! It's by Value Village and Subway.
