I went in and ordered the Carnitas plate, a standard Mexican dish , when it came out it was literally pan fried pork chops, I sent it back and have not returned since, I was offered to have something else made but seriously if they think that was Carnitas then Im not letting them have another chance to disappoint me

Did not expect much from a place right next to Best Western, but now I always go there whenever I'm in Cottonwood. Great food and service, really authentic and flavorful. Get the specials, they are always exceptional!

Lots of room as this is a larger restaurant in the middle of New town Cottonwood. Food was good and definitely PLENTY, had the Shrimp Monterey, slightly overdone but with the cream sauce it was fine. They brought this meal on two plates and with tortillas in another side container. Way to much to eat, so I boxed the remainder.... More

We stayed in the Best Western, Cottonwood Inn, and this place is practically on site, just a two minute walk away. Convenient yes, but the food is delicious. Plenty of choice and can recommend the new beer ( well to me anyway) Mondelo Negra , served on tap so cheaper than hubby's Corona bottle. Nice warm tortilla chips and chille... More

I tried something new I got the Pollo Asado y Mas. It's was awesome. Love the chips & salsa & rice. The enchilada & burrito are good.

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!

This restaurant is next door to the Best Western Hotel we are staying in and we walked over and had the best meal of our trip. We have been on the road for 5 days traveling through Nevada, Utah and AZ and this by far was the best meal of the whole trip. And being from San Diego (which has... More

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
