Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 February 2012

This is a good casual place to eat in the old town section of Wichita. While there was nothing special about the food or menu, it was good and very reasonably priced. They also had a nice selection of beers and drinks, also at a reasonable price.

The service was quick and efficient.

The only negatives are that the seats in the booths are very uncomfortable.

This was our first time to Playa Azul.

and it was not a disapointment. we requested the xtra hot sauce, it was very good! we order the Jalisco Dish, a recomendation from our waiter.

think of fajitas, shrimp, chicken and beef over a bed of rice, the rice had a special cheesy sauce on top. it was so good!

the service was fast and friendly. this restaurant makes a good addition to Old town in Wichita.

we'll be back definitely!

This was our first trip to Playa Azul and we went there based off of reviews. We were pleasantly surprised to find a wonderful mexican restaurant. The menu was huge, offering everything you could think of, as well as not being the typical Tex-Mex. The food arrived hot and fresh, as well as being exactly how we ordered it. The prices were great, especially coming from CO where a typical mexican restaurant runs you $45 for two. We were able to have 3 beers, 1 margarita, 1 soda, and 2 meals for $29 with tax. The service is excellent! The wait staff is very attentive, and never let our drinks get low. Another item to boast about is their nightly drink specials. We went on a Tuesday night to find $ .99 draft beers! I believe they have $1.99 frozen lime margaritas on Wednesday, and other specials such as pitchers of beer, etc for very good prices! Overall the place does not look that inviting from the outside, but definitely offers great food, service, and drinks!

My husband and I eat at Playa Azul at least once a week. The decor is very remenisant of restaurants we've been to in Mexico. The menu is large, offering a lunch menu, vegetarian and seafood dishes. My husband's favorite is Chili Colorado. I try to order something different each time. My favorite so far is the Carne Asada Tacos. The chips and sauce are the best and they have great margaritas. It can be a little noisy, but it's a fun place. They have several TV playing soccer games and the news in spanish. It can get very busy around lunch time and on week-end nights. The staff are all very friendly and attentive. For birthday's they will plop a sombrero on your head and sing Happy Birthday in spanish while smearing ice cream all over your face. It makes for great pictures.
