Blue Parrot on soi 13/2 and Tequila Reef are the best I've found so far. Have tried them all, none compare to back home in Calif., however.

1) Tequila Reef, Soi 7

2) Mikes on Thrapaya Rd. towards Jomtien

3) Fattys, second Rd. just north of soi 2

4) Blue Parrot

5) Great american Rib Co., Thepprasit Rd (Fajitas)

6) Big Als, Soi Bauko and second Rd. soi 2

7) Pizzas R us (Burritos)

I prefer Big Als for price and taste, but there's no place like home for Mexican Food!!

Not Yet!

One more, maybe someone can help me with the correct name/location:

The moonshine (?) guest house, soi 5 (?) Jomtien. The first soi north of soi post office/Jomtien immigration

Tex Mex place. I had a burrito there once, price was high, portion small but tasted good!

IMHO nothing compares to Tequila Reef soi 7. I have had Blue Parrot food, and it was complete rubbish. I have not had the oppertunity to eat at any of the other places in Pattaya, for the simple reason that Tequila Reef satisified me. I like the food there so much, I don't feel the need to go looking anywhere else.

 

I highly recommend the sizzling chicken fajita's. My wife (Thai) likes the chicken salad. My kids love the chili burgers, and you can not find a better Margarita in Thailand.

I never cared much for The Blue Parrot, and although I've never seen the kitchen it just seems to be a dirty place.

i always make at least one visit to tequilla reef. they have excellent burritos (highly recommend the crash and burn) and very good frozen margaritas with actual tequilla in them. have had the ribs as well and they are also excellent

i am only interested in the illegal, the immoral and the fattening

I have yet to try the Tequila Reef. I eat at the Blue Parrot every once in a while when I'm drunk and hungry and in the area. Most of the food there is OK, although I haven't sampled the entire menu. I'll go back, for sure, unless I can find a better place. I know Mexican food. I've had better, I've had worse. I've lived in San Diego, Phoenix, and Texas. I've also spent time in Mexico. The Blue Parrot is OK for Pattaya, but there's room for improvement. One other thing: the margaritas are OK.

Not much cheese on Big Al’s tacos or lettuce. Blue Parrot puts a lot on but I don’t like their beef that much.

Thanks fellas for the replies. I like the little place on Soi Pattaya Land 2 just before the Penthouse. Its more of a bar but is serves a few Mexican dishes. I had the best Chimichonga I have had in a long time.

For what it's worth, I've now tried the Tequila Reef a few times. I went three times over the course of three weeks. The first week, it was good. The second week I tried the exact same dish, and it was not good. I can only guess that they had a substitute cook that week. Anyway, I went back the other day and it was back to being halfway OK. The regular cook must be back.

Oldone. Can you tell us about the Mexican at Bob's Bar-B-Q ? Either at Shooters or the original location?

 

Thanks

Hate to say it but it seems to be mix and match depending what your in the mood for.

For Tacos I like Blue Parrot for Burritos Tequila reef and for enchiladas Mikes although I really haven't found a good enchilada anywhere. Well I take that back there's a good taco place up in Udon. I think that's the name of it "The Taco Place"

 

I started making my own.

tequila reef was a joke for me, 75% of the filling was white rice with a dash of chicken thrown in rather than the other way around, infact there was so little chicken in my dish i would have complained had i seen anyone who could speak english.

 

i love mexican having lived in California and for me the only decent venue is big als ( although the hot dogs and burgers are shite so stick with the mex stuff )

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
