When in town we try to catch a meal here. As usual it did not disappoint. The service is friendly, fast and the food is good. An adult beverage to complete the experience. If you're a guacamole fan, they make it to order at tableside.

Service was fast and friendly. I had one of the specialty margaritas and it was good, not watered down like in a lot of places. Great portions and reasonable prices.

We stop on our way back from the beach. Around 4:30 on a Tuesday. The service was poor. The food was way to salty. I got the Baja Burrito is definitely not Chipotle. My daughter got the churros, they're not good at all. Mediocre. Will not be going back.

After having waited for more than 20 minutes in a booth at the competing Mexican restaurant on Richmond Highway/Pantops, and nothing at all having been brought to our table: no water, no nachos, no salsa..., we got up and left. We had eaten there several times before, and I wrote nice, well-deserved reviews. But, tonight was different. So, we drove... More

Friendly service but definitely not worth the money. Expensive compared to other chain Mexican restaurants and not even that good.

Service is wonder. Food is the best Mexican in this area. Great for couples or large crowd. Always visit when here in town. Great value for the amount of food you get

Kind of loud and busy. My fish dinner was good. Felt like a chain restaurant. Margaritas were great. Waiter very nice.

Me and my girlfriend stopped here for lunch and it was amazing. We had the tropical fruit margarita and fresh guacamole to start. My girlfriend said it was the best guac she's ever had. That says a lot because she loves Mexican food. We finished with the pineapple dish and steak and chicken. Holy cow this was amazing. If you've... More

Excellent!! From table side made guacamole to swimming pool size margaritas and happy hour beer specials the place was awesome. Hubby had seen a menu item online that wasn't on print menu when we arrived. When he asked the server about it, he knew immediately and said if they had the ingredients, the kitchen would be glad to make it.... More

I have HUGE love for Plaza Azteca! This is one of my favorite restaurants. I think I've had everything on the menu at this point (excluding shrimp) and never had a "miss". The margaritas are delicious! Sometimes the service is a little slow, but the staff is great. I would say Plaza is family-friendly and they're great with kids.
