Very pleasant experience - my waiter Paulino was very pleasant and attentive. Brought me my drink quickly and my appetizer was huge.The Taco salad was also very good and huge. If anything could be said to be wrong it was that the portions were too big.

Great place to meet friends for a drink and cheap eats! They have daily drink specials including the giant margarita which is big enough for two.The best part of Plaza Mexico is the wonderful wait staff and other employees! They go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating to everyone!

The food here was pretty good. Typical Mexican restaurant food. I chowed down on the chips and salsa, very addictive. I ordered the vegetarian #12, cheese enchilada, bean burrito, and chile relleno.

These folks serve some fine food and the service is superb! They were taught by the owner of El Zarape which is another great Mexican restaurant in town.

I tried the Pollo Jalisco and it really hit the spot. The chicken was tender, juicy, and flavorful, and the sides were equally as appetizing. Plus, the meal was big and filled me up fast. Overall it was great experience and I would recommend Plaza Mexico Bar & Grill to anyone.
