Looking For American Restaurants Around Playa del Carmen? Visit Don Chendo
Don Chendo features pizza and pasta….so isn’t that more like Italian food? In fact, Don Chendo pizza is deep-dish Chicago style, so it’s as American as it can get. They feature additional items from an American pizza parlor, like buffalo dip, salads, and pastas. They are located on Avenue 30, between 22nd and 24th streets.
They have become a favorite for both the staff and the guests here at Playa Palms Beach Hotel because in addition to a fun dine-in atmosphere, Don Chendo offers take-out and delivery service, Monday – Saturday from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. Call them from the beach and have fresh-made, deep-dish, Chicago-style pizza waiting for you when you return to the hotel lobby.
If you choose to dine in, Don Chendo serves plenty of beer on tap and by the bottle, both domestic and specialty beers, as well as wines by the glass and the bottle. Some of our favorite menu items include:
Caesar Salad. Made with a homemade Caesar dressing, the crunchy romaine hearts and house-made croutons are the perfect complement to your pizza.
The Emilio. While you can choose from traditional pizza offerings – or combine their generous toppings to make your own – we love the Emilio, which features roasted chicken, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, and a homemade basil pesto.
Angel Hair with Shrimp and Broccoli. The name says it all, but the addition of perfectly caramelized onions makes this dish divine.
