I finally talked my husband into coming here with me and won't come back. We were seated promptly and the waiter walked by us several times. The lady with the water pitcher got us water and menus. They seated two more booths next to us and took one order before us and the other at the same time. Both of... More

This is the best Mexican you will find in the area. Lau Janita's downtown maybe the most authentic (order/fast food) but this is an excellent sit down and excellent service. One person will seat you, another offer water/chips/salsa, another will take your drink order, and another will come as your waiter/waitress and take your order. It is a great place... More

Two words: Pollo Loco That's right...crazy chicken! Plaza serves the best Pollo Loco I have ever had. The portion size is generous. I can usually get two or three meals out of it. The prices at Plaza are very reasonable and the service is insanely speedy! Does the decor match that of other "more traditional" mexican joints? No! But it... More

Vacationed here and we always look for authentic Mexican cuisine wherever we travel. If you're one who expects/desires free chips and salsa when you dine, you will get it here. The menu was so large that we had to ask our gracious waiter three times that we weren't ready to order yet. My wife had Chimis and I had something... More

The restaurant is a refabbed Village Inn (or some such). What it lacks in ambience it makes up in food. Delicious. The Carne Asada is my favorite. Order some roasted hot peppers--I dare you. They are delicious! Good beer options, and other drinks to please most anyone (save someone who, like me, wants really good wine--but no big deal). Friendly,... More
