Ate the usual, very large, express chicken burrito lunch special with the rice and beans. Consistent bland Mexican food and with a little salsa is good to go. Very filling and with the soda, chips and salsa and the free dessert (ice cream) for under $10 you can not go wrong by eating here. Give em a try if in... More

Colleagues and I go here frequently for lunch. They are fast, friendly and the food is very good for the price in the Midwest. The bonus is the chips and salsa and the Ice cream at the end that is inclusive of the meal price. Always delivers and we have never been dissatisfied. Thanks for reading and highly recommend. FYI...

This is your typical Mexican place - tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. I like the food there, but am rating average because it doesn't stand out. The service is really fast and attentive. You can be in and out quite quickly if that's what you want. They give you a complimentary small dessert (scoop of ice cream on a fried sweet... More

Love the food here, holds up and not slop on the plate. Drinks are great especially getting the food stuff, costs more, but damn!

I can't say anything positive about this place. Nothing. I can't remember a time when I have had such awful food. Awful meaning, not tasty, not hot, not cold, everything was just blah. Certain I have had frozen microwave mexican food better than this place. When you arrive somewhere after 3 bottles of wine just about aNyThInG will taste good.... More

This place is now under new management and called 'Nuevo Mexico'. I think the service is better now, and the food is still the same good food. Everyone gets a small dessert.

My brother and sis in law brought us to this restaurant a few months ago and we keep going back! Food is outstanding,the room buzzes with energy but its not too loud to hold a conversation. LOVE! If you haven't dropped in do so, they're quick when you're in a rush otherwise the staff never interrupts your dinner.

We had a group of of 9 people that came at various times. It was frequently hard to get the attention of a waitress for a drink or an additional order. Servers were friendly and prices reasonable. Portion size was big, taste was ok.

I liked Plaza. Not much too look at as it sits in a little mini-mall. But we received great service, very friendly and fast. The chicken in my enchilada was crazy moist and perfectly done. The tamale was flavored nicely. Free ice-cream with cinnamon on a giant cinnamon chip was nice too. Great little place for lunch, a diamond in... More
