Got to Taqueria Playa Tropical and there was almost no wait for seating. As soon as we sat we were served w some nachos and hot sauce. Took a while for someone to come over again and take our orders. Ordered a nice carnitas burrito that came in a plate w guacamole and sourcream. Really tasty, had beans and rice... More

This place has the atmosphere of a Mexican taqueria down to a "t". I was impressed their staff, decor, and music all embodied and embraced the Mexican culture. A++ for that. B- however for the food. It lacked seasoning, color, and was bland. I was rather disappointed as I had high hopes for this place. It could have just been... More

We had great service but there was not alot of people there. We ordered the nachos which is different than other places but it tasted good also the coctel de camaron was fresh and a good size portion. The barbacoa burrito was very good and a good portion size.The margaritas were also a good value. Overall it was a great... More

This restaurant was referred to us by our elder son. What an excellent choice it was. The food was sooooo yummy, not overpriced & great portions. The bonus was that they have live music on Fri & Sat evenings. We will be definitely visiting this place often.

There isn't many places around that have authentic food, most are a fusion of some sort. Taqueria is fantastic food, the service is so so however. If you can get past the indifferent servers, the food is worth it.

Came here with a friend of mine that thought this place was great. Well, he's never been to the Mexico or the states for Mexican food. I found the service was terrible, also the food was average/bland food for my taste buds. When you are the only Mexican restaurant in town, I guess you can get away with anything. We... More

Saw one of my Snapchat friends go to this place for Ceviche so I just had to check it out. I love me some ceviche. Unfortunately there was no shrimp ceviche - only fish ceviche. It was still good regardless! "V-STAR" Rating: Variety - 8/10: Tacos, Quesadillas, Ceviche, Enchiladas and many more Mexican dishes... Service - 6/10: It takes awhile... More

Be ready for a busy place and a possible wait for a table. But it is worth the wait if you have to. I went here with friends for the first time on a Tuesday night and the place was hopping. After enjoying authentic tortilla soup and fish taco I now understand. The food is fantastic. My friend had the... More
