    Food was solid, service was good, noisy (but the good kind - we could still hear each other). The real standout was the pricing, though -VERY reasonable.

    Playa Betty's is always an enjoyable, tasty experience. We visited on Taco Tuesday, which is a phenomenal value for tacos and drinks. The place is lively but you can still have conversations without shouting, particularly if your table is on the perimeter. The service was terrific, even though the place was crowded. My favorites are the Al Pastor and Ahi Tuna tacos, the Caesar Chavez salad, and the Palomas. Delish!

    Insanely crowded. We had to wait although we had a reservation. Our party of 4 had to share the very small pub-height table next to the food service window with another party of 4. Incredibly uncomfortable with barely enough room to eat.

    I always have a lovely time going to PB! The servers and host/an are really nice and extremely accommodating. You can’t beat the guac and chips! I can only speak about the tacos, it’s the only entree I order - the short rib and al pastor, bomb! They have a pretty good happy hour and the drinks don’t disappoint.
