This is a good Mexican restaurant with good food and Margaritas. It reminds me of a Cozymel's or On The Border.

I never cared for Mexican food until I discovered Plaza Azteca. The food is always good and served hot. Their homemade guacamole is the best! I have tried several dishes but highly recommend their grilled shrimp and rice as well as any of their fajita dishes. Servers are very accommodating and friendly.

Plaza Azteca is a regional chain of Mexican restaurants. The Williamsburg location is fairly large, busy & efficient in handling groups. The menu has some departures from the typical Mexican choices. Tableside guacamole preparation is offered. They are accommodating when asked for slight variations in the preparation of a menu item.

We had not been here before, and are not normally fans of Mexican chains. A very nice surprise, as the food was excellent (we had fajitas and enchiladas) and the service was great. Our server, Alex, was great, and even brought us some special hot sauce from the kitchen when we asked if thye had anything other than the mild... More

We enjoy Plaza Azteca and eat there often. Upon arrival they bring you warm nachos with salsa to enjoy while waiting for your entrees. There is a plentiful amount of food. My granddaughter and I often share, and we are both satisfied. The service is quick and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

As locals we always schedule either lunch or dinner at this restaurant. It has a good following so sometimes there is a wait. Many menu items to chose from as well as drinks, reasonable prices and great service. A great place to stop for a meal either before or after seeing a movie just a short walking distance

1. The place was bedlam with screaming kids and noise. 2. The waiter had NO clue about the menu. When you eat at a "mexican-style" restaurant, you would hope the waiter would understand "chili con queso" or "a shot of Cuervo Gold" when you order. 3. A "taco salad" should be lots of lettuce with toppings, not tons of gooey,... More
