I went to Plaza Mexico yesterday for lunch, the staff was friendly and the food was served quickly and tasted very good. I got the Chili Reno lunch special. I really enjoyed it. They serve salsa chips and salsa as free appetizer. The restaurant had a feel of really being in Mexico. I would recommend this restaurant for dinner and... More

The guacamole was so hot that you couldn't eat it.. we asked waiter for a couple slices of avocado to help even out the too many jalapeños.. He said we would have to pay for them.. we declined and wasted 8 dollars.. Then we got our order and it was Luke warm and just terrible.. I eat at Mexican places... More

My wife and I have been coming here for years. The food and service are great and we never regret coming here. They have a full menu and you cannot make a bad choice. They will make guac at your table, but that costs extra. The beers and drinks are nice and cold! Worth a stop here.

Our meal here was very average for a Mexican restaurant. The Margaritas were ok but not great. The chips were okay. I did like the salsa and the tableside quacamole was excellent. The fajitas were okay as were all of the dishes we had. The service was just okay.

My family and I have been dining at this establishment for a few years now. Never really had a complaint until this evening (3/29/2017). We were seated in the back party room and unfortunately we ended up sharing the room with a large private party. It was so loud in there that my family and I had to yell in... More

One of the best places in the area. I've been here several times & have always been satisfied. The portions are large and the food is fresh. I highly recommend the Hawaiian Fajitas! The servers are always friendly and attentive.
