The bar tenders special was excellent. The staff was extremely accommodating when we walked in with 16 people. Very quick and friendly service.

If you are looking for freshly prepared food, excellent service, a family atmosphere, and the best frozen margaritas in Cottonwood, Plaza Bonita is THE place to go. I was traveling on business and eating alone, but felt very comfortable dining in the bar (with a nice view of the Mingus Mountains). Because of the view, I preferred sitting in the... More

We were in Sedona and looking for a less crowded option for mexican food so we headed to Cottonwood. Part of a Best Western, this place is extremely casual but gets crowded quickly and when looking around it's clear a lot of locals go here...lots of families and work associates. The food was really inexpensive and very authentic. Nice find!

Love Plaza Bonita....... until eating here. Salsa was delicious, could have eaten is straight with a spoon. Thought we had a great start to our meal. I had the fajitas which were good but not great. The beans tasted a little off and had a bit of a fishy smell. My mother ordered the Carne Asada "well done and overcooked".... More

Visited Cottonwood over Christmas to visit Blazin M Ranch and sadly, due to travel delays we arrived too late to make our reservation. Pulled up to our hotel (Best Western) a bit gutted about it and decided to pop into Plaza Bonita for dinner. Best decision ever. We had the most amazing meals, at such a reasonable price and we...

I ate here on 11-1-13. I'd eaten there several times before, but not for a while, since I hadn't been staying long in the area. Well, Plaza Bonita is just as good as ever. At Mexican restaurants I always eat basic; in this case the enchilada and tamale lunch plate, and that plus rice, beans, and chips filled me happily... More
