We ate a fish/shrimp curry and spinach/potato enchiladas. They both were very good and fresh. The portion sizes were good too.

We always have to stop at Plaza Azteca for lunch when we are in OBX. Service and food has always been good. We typically have the burrito fajita, it is more than enough for two. Salsa and chips help round out our lunch. Stop in and enjoy.

Manny was our server. He was very efficient and welcoming. We opted for the guacamole prepared fresh at your table. It was a treat to watch it being prepared and well worth the $8.00 charge. We were also there on Taco Tuesday so I opted to have three tacos at $1.00 each. They have an extensive combination menu and the... More

They had good chile rellenos, sangria and rice. I had the enchiladas..eh, they would have been better if the meats were seasoned better. The chicken and hamburger was bland to me and my teenagers. We had the cheese dip, very basic. We wanted to try the table side quacamole but they ran out of avocados. I spent $88 for 4... More

Normally, I avoid chain restaurants as they lack attention to detail. We were all very impressed with the warm welcome and attentiveness once seated. The table side guacamole is a must have to compliment the chips and salsa! If you are not into traditional Mexican dishes, like me...the Philly Steak Burrito is awesome!!! Our server was friendly and fast (almost... More

Ahh, fajita burrito, umm. Something we don't have at our local places in florida, add some beans and rice and call it a lunch. We split a meal as its more than either of us can eat. Staff is quick and friendly.

After seven nights of great seafood we needed a break and decided to go Mexican. Plaza Azteca was a great choice. The made at your table guacamole was awesome, the marguaritas as good as any I have ever had! The very generous menu provided something for everyone, prices very reasonable and the service was great.
