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.

We stopped for lunch while wandering around the waterfront. The service was good. All 4 of us enjoyed our orders. I would have no problem stopping again.

Stopped in for lunch while walking the Beaufort waterfront. Atmosphere is great. Food was great except the chicken was a little dry. Over all a great place to get Mexican in Beaufort.

Plaza Mexico provided friendly greeting, table service and ambience. The more pricey and popular local restaurants were crowded with long lines and we needed a quick dinner without a reservation. Plaza Mexico provided just that. The food is typical fast South of the Border. The...More
