I liked it here very much, especially the Pollo de Molé, which was full of flavor and the perfect consistency. The restaurant is on Main Street, and cozy, with on street parking. We were seated quickly, and enjoyed the colorful hand-carved booths, and painted tables....More

This restaurant is most definitely for tourists. The food was good, but a bit pricey, especially for the location (small town Utah). Kids meal for $7. Husband and I shared the Nacho supreme ($14). It was delicious and enough for both of us.

You can get great Mexican food here. Not the typical Americanized crap, more traditional Mexican. Serving sizes are huge of course. We eat here once a week thru the summers.

This Place is so good. And the size of the plates are huge. I can never finish eating my food. They have a lot of different Mexican dishes that they offer. Such a cute decorative place.

We were hungry and looking for a Mexican Restaurant, found Plaza Mexicana right next door! The decor adds to the delicious meal. The meals are huge, so splitting one would still be plenty. All in all, a good place for Mexican food.
