Pretty good Mexican food right on the main street of Beaufort, North Carolina. Standard Mexican menu. Good Margaritas. We have been here 5-6 times and I have found the food to be pretty consistent. Nothing outstanding but ok.

Having lived in So Cal for over 10 years, my expectations are high for Mexican restaurants. Plaza Mexico exceeded expectations. The staff, although late on a Sunday night, were friendly and tolerated my horrible Spanish. Food was great and portions large.

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.

To compensate for the blandness of their food, they serve a half plate of rice which is equally tasteless. Wine selection is very poor. Much better restaurants in the area.
