.

This is not my first visit to Mazatlan's at any of their locations. Normally service is satisfactory no more at two of them and exemplary at the Parkland one. Most of the dishes are good but not consistent in greasiness. Sometimes their tacos are very greasy and their appetizer Mexican pizza is very greasy other times those are nicely drained. Their Carne Asada is very good, however lately the beans and rice have been smoothed over the plate to look like there is a lot when there isn't and they no longer serve sour cream with them as they did years ago. Also the guacamole has been decreased as a condiment and as a an appetizer for chips so it is not worth the cost now. My main complaint was we ate in the bar recently and the bartender wasn't busy at all except talking to what appeared to be his amigo and not a paying customer. He didn't serve us promptly and he did it hurriedly as well to return to his amigo. Then the GAME came on and the service got worse though there were more servers in the bar watching the game on TV! We two were the only customers in the bar, you'd think we'd be treated well since they haven't been open long DT branch and still don't have the customer base that the Meridian one and the Parkland one have. Other food quality complaints are: the flour tortillas have gotten smaller, the salsa has more juice than tomato in it and pretty garden variety nothing to be proud of, the shrimp is tiny bay shrimp in their Camarones con Ajo, the chicken flautas are bland and not worth the effort of eating them and their enchilada sauce is terrible and they put on the chiles rellenos too! Stick to the Carne Asada, you won't be disappointed. Going to try a different Mexican restaurant on 176th & Meridian instead and get better service, since we are halfway between them.

I have never written a restraint review before but my experience at Mazatlan??s was so bad I had to write. This Mazatlan site accidentally over charged on our bill and when it was pointed out they tried to using bullying and belittling to make us drop our request to correct their error. I??m a polite quite customer and was overwhelmed by how rude the Manager was. Whatever happened to the customer is always right? I will never go here again.

Mazatlan in puyallup is my favorite restaurant to go to. They have great food and awesome service! I have never had a bad experience in all of the years I have been there. I am not saying they have the best most authentic Mexican food in the world but it still tastes great! I would highly recomend it to anyone looking for a good meal and a friendly atmosphere!

I am not one to actually take the time to write reviews so the fact that I am writing this says a lot. Mazatlan in Puyallup is the best Mexican food restaurant ever! I have been to this place several times and have been VERY impressed every time. Atmosphere is busy and loud, but it just adds to the experience and is perfect for those with "vocal" kids. Never a long wait to be seated, customer service is awesome, food comes out quickly and is hot and delicious. Even when I called in a to-go order, the service over the phone was great, the meal was ready in 15 minutes, and the food was great! We have this great experience every time we go, no matter how busy they are with guests. These people really know how to treat their customers and how to make amazing food!

This place isn't authentic by any stretch of the imagination. Go to San Diego or Mexico and ask for a Carnita or Carne Asada burrito and see it they put rice and beans in it.

I move to Puyallup and every burrito you order is filled to the gills with rice and beans. It's nothing but cheap filler. This place is americanized mexican food. Spiced down and bland. If you think this food is good mexican food your Mexican food experience is severely limited.

Love, love LOVE Mazatlan! It's the best Mexican food around! Chips and salsa at the beginning is crisp and fresh unlike a lot of places around here, get their Super Nachos as a meal--you won't regret it! Super fast and friendly, very consistent! I highly recommend this restaurant!

If the A.C. wasn??t blasting us, the waiter so rude and pushy, and the music blaring so loud you have to yell at each other, ...I guess we would have been someplace else.

If you want to go out for a horrible time, maybe looking for a place to provoke an argument with your partner so you can break up, or just ruin a good mood, boy, Mazatlan in Puyallup is just the deal.

It's too bad, too, because the food was not awful. It wasn't great, the tortilla soup was a definite mistake, but it was the best part of the experience. I wanted to punch the waiter out, and left no tip which I have done only a couple times in decades of dining out.

Worst service and atmosphere I have ever experienced in the Puget Sound. Don't say we didn't warn you.

I know it's proper etiquette to leave a tip for service but I was not impressed with this restaurant. I went with my kids and didn't feel welcome by the staff. They sat us right under a vent that when the AC turned on it hit us right above our heads and it was really cold. My kids complain and I asked if they could move us to a better seating without a vent right above us. I felt like they were insulted and they were a little rude. Some people forget that I can speak spanish so I knew what they were saying. The food was edible but I was not impressed. I left them a note along with my bill. I would not go back.

This restaurant has excellent mexican food. The atmosphere is often busy and bustling, however the wait is worth the food.

The service is usually extremely prompt, and attentive. We have never had to wait for long for our food once seated. This is really important with kids in tow.

The food is always piping hot, tasty and fresh looking. I do not have the impression that things are baking under a heat lamp.

If you are looking for a tasty, prompt Mexican food experience for a reasonable price, check out this restaurant.

This place is never slow.... I have never waited for my food. The cost is very reasonable!!! I love it here and they do very good business!!!! They are popular so if you have to wait to be seated that is some time a goooood sign, of a goood restaurant. All restaurants have to have alcohol to make it any more. Who doesn't need a margarita with their taco live a little!!! They don't shove it down your throat!!!

This place has incredible mexican food - very good. I really am not too fond of the crowded atmosphere and the presence of alcohol, however. It takes a very long time to get served and is expensive. I guess it depends on what you are willing to sacrifice for a great meal

PROS: Excellent Food
CONS: Alcholic atmosphere and very long waits and crowded

Have been dying to try this for months since the parking lot is ALWAYS packed here. So glad that I did! The food was very good, way better than Azteca. Prices are fair and decent. Service was amazing, although our server took awhile to get our bill. But a great experience! Definately recommend!

Pros: great price, great food, great drinks

The food is good, but it depends how much pride the chief takes in his work. Sometimes you get a very well made plate, but not always. I can deal without the non-Hispanics who work there because it takes away a feel to the restruant.

The parking at this restruant can be sometimes bad, it is very crowded sometimes.

The service is decent, but not the best. The pricing is competitive I think with other Mexican restaurants in the area.

This restruant also has a pub in it I think.

Also, this restruant can be loud sometimes.

PROS: Decent Mexican food
CONS: Parking lot can be crowded.
