Large portions at a moderate price. Authentic cuisine. Prices are higher than advertised online. Service was quick. Dishes had a gourmet flair but just some plain cheese enchiladas would have been nice. Would like to have had multiple dishes at a more reasonable price rather than a few higher priced.

We stopped in yesterday, and I am glad we did. This was the best Mexican meal we have had in a long time. The food was outstanding and the service was good. If your in town and looking for something good to eat, this is a great place to try. The only thing they should change, is they should pay... More

We had spent the day at the beach and got a late start for dinner. We had been to Plaza Mariachi when we visited Wilmington before, so we opted to go back again, It's in an older shopping center, but worth a try. We were seated as soon as we walked in. Chips and salsa arrived at our table right... More

Delicious! I enjoyed atmosphere and waiter did great job. Enchilada was good. Salsa was good. I found my New Mexican restaurant in Wilmington. And no wait on a Saturday night.

We enjoyed the chips and salsa. However, the food was bland and needs seasoning. Chicken had fat on it (would think clean as it was fajitas); however, the guacamole was good and friendly service.

Have visited for lunch many times and while the lunch specials are reasonably priced, the quality and taste leaves a little to be desired. I've had fatty beef in my fajitas and rubbery chicken in tacos. I think I go back again and again because the service is good and the Guacamole is always fresh & tasty. I know that... More

It's been a while since my last review here, so it was time to check it out again. Once again, everything was great! From the greeting at the door through the close of the meal, all was outstanding. My wife and I ordered the fajitas for two and, as in times past, there was far more food delivered to our... More

I come here quite frequently but was not pleased tonight with the service we received. I asked for the WiFi password to begin with and the server didn't even know their own password to their Internet. I asked him to find it out and it took him well over 5 min so I had to hunt down another guy to... More

I met some co workers here for a late lunch. We were promptly seated. Our server was not friendly....at all. He seemed annoyed that we were there. Once we finally ordered, we received our food in a very timely manner. Everyone thought that the food was excellent! Prices were good too. If I go back, I will request not to... More
