We visit Pawleys Island 3-4 times a year. One of our favorite restaurants that we must go to each time is La Playa's. They have an extensive menu of both Carribean and Mexican/Latin American food as well as selections for Gringos. This is a Latino family owned restaurant and they take great pride in their place. Their Margaritas and Mohitos are most excellent. Service can get slow during busy times but the food is well worth the slight wait.

There is a huge selection of Mexican and Caribbean food and everything is good. The prices are reasonable, but the service is the best part. Each staff member takes an active role in making sure you are happy. They greet you with "Ola" to add to the ethic appeal and they remember the repeat customers, of which there are many. La Playa has been a favorite of my family since it opened.

We were looking for a bit of Mexican food and checked out the reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews were very helpful, and we decided on La Playa. We had an excellent meal. The service was friendly, the food was very flavorful and well prepared. The re-fried beans were a little bit soupy, but other than that a perfect meal. Special mention about the cabbage salad that came with my steak. It was very tasty, not coleslaw, but had a bit of a vinegar bite. A nice contrast to the spicy steak.

We'll be back!

From the moment you walk through the doors and are warmly greeted, you know that not only will you have a comfortable stay but that this will be the first of many.
The choices of delectables are numerous but each is expertly prepared.
Treat yourself to a margarita, but if you have no place to go--I would spring for the pitcher!
LaPlaya will please all appetites and desires!!
Once you come--you will come back often!

I went to La Playa with family and friends the other night and I usually get their house margarita, which is always a very good margarita. This night I wanted something different so I ordered an Ultimate Margarita made with Patron! Best Margarita Ever!
