Went here for a late lunch. I ordered the fajitas with chicken, shrimp and beef. The beef and chicken were dry and over cooked, the tortillas were stale and the peppers and onions were hardly cooked. Overall it was very disappointing.

Rude arrogant staff!!!!!! We arrived at the restaurant at 8:50pm on Sun May 28. The place was packed with people, but no wait and tables were available. The host ( a young Latino, with shoulder length hair) was quick to say: we are CLosed! I...More

Pretty good Mexican food right on the main street of Beaufort, North Carolina. Standard Mexican menu. Good Margaritas. We have been here 5-6 times and I have found the food to be pretty consistent. Nothing outstanding but ok.

Having lived in So Cal for over 10 years, my expectations are high for Mexican restaurants. Plaza Mexico exceeded expectations. The staff, although late on a Sunday night, were friendly and tolerated my horrible Spanish. Food was great and portions large.

Typical Mexican restaurant with typical prices, which means you won't break the bank. Extensive menu. It is exactly what you would expect......which can be perfect.

On a recent visit to Plaza Mexico, I found a huge hair in my salsa. The staff seemed to care less about the incident. I left. On other trips the food is decent, but nothing to write home about.
