This is your typical Mexican place - tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. I like the food there, but am rating average because it doesn't stand out. The service is really fast and attentive. You can be in and out quite quickly if that's what you want....More

We had a group of of 9 people that came at various times. It was frequently hard to get the attention of a waitress for a drink or an additional order. Servers were friendly and prices reasonable. Portion size was big, taste was ok.

I liked Plaza. Not much too look at as it sits in a little mini-mall. But we received great service, very friendly and fast. The chicken in my enchilada was crazy moist and perfectly done. The tamale was flavored nicely. Free ice-cream with cinnamon on...More
