Had lunch there. Good food - great value. The proprietor is very friendly and played guitar for the customers. Would have loved to have dinner there if time had permitted. Definitely recommend it.

I was actually very excited when I read their menu online because it looked like it was going to be very authentic taste and dishes that I have eaten while staying in the Yucatán peninsula three times. We order the chips and salsa and some queso and I was looking forward to the Mexican bread with the xnipec and I... More

The food tasted very good. What the restaurant needs is a lift in landscaping to make it more attractive.

Great Food, Great atmosphere, Great owners. Authentic Mexican cuisine served by a friendly staff. The restaurant is clean and obviously a hit with the locals, not only the tourists. Portions are big, price is good.

The food was wonderful and we had the most pleasant servers since coming to St. Augustine. It seemed to be a team effort in seating us, taking our orders, delivering our meals, checking back with us and finally to clearing our plates. None of this it's not my table stuff that we found at The Brunch downtown. We both had... More

We love restaurants like Playa Chac-Mool. It is family owned and operated, with the owner walking around singing and playing his guitar, and his wife gracefully greeting us at the door. The menu is standard Mexican fare, nothing fancy or different, but well prepared. If we lived in St. Augustine, we'd probably be regulars, as the owners are welcoming and... More

From the moment we walked in, it was clear that Playa Chac-Mool offered a unique experience for diners. It has the feel of a family-run restaurant that serves small-batch, authentic Mexican food made from ultra-fresh ingredients. This isn't a chain restaurant, so diners shouldn't expect to find sodium-laden, fat-glutted sauces covering low-quality dishes. Instead, the dishes rely on combinations of... More

Pretty good place to eat. Liked the décor which had lots of pottery. Food is good enough to have when tired of seafood.

We have visited several times and we and those we have taken have always enjoyed what we have ordered/ We have tried numerous dishes and have not had any complaints. Do not be turned away by the lack of patrons - frequently there have been very few people in the restaurant = not sure why as it is excellent
