Needed Mexican food and found it!

From SoCaL and while visiting mom, needed my usual fix of authentic Mexican food. Staff nice and attentive. The chip/salsa were some of the best I have ever had! Ordered guacamole with chips - awesome! Had the cheese enchiladas/rice and beans - all great! Mom even raved about their hard... read more

We went to Plaza Bonita mainly because it was close to the hotel we were staying at. Right from the moment we walked through the door we knew it was a good choice! Very pleasant, friendly staff & good, if not outstanding, Mexican food. We liked it so much we went back again.

Consistently good. Generous portions of well presented tasty food. Chips and salsa come before ordering and upon request you can have the FREE bean and cheese dip! Very good! Not at all spicy. Wait staff very welcoming and attentive.

Seldom does one go to a Mexican restaurant for a salad, however my wife and I weren't ready for a large meal. We both selected a seafood salad (mine shrimp, hers fish). They were huge and delicious (so much for not needing much). Both salads included avocado, mango, corn, tomatoes and a variety of greens. All was super fresh. The... More

We have a few days of our trip left but so far, hands down, this has been the BEST Mexican food we've had! Huge portions, great tasting, not greasy, friendly staff. Better than any of the more highly recommended and expensive places in Scottsdale. We stopped at Plaza Bonita after visiting the Tuzigoot National Monument just by chance... It's two... More

Good food in a huge but quirky place. When we pulled in the parking lot was packed. We thought that was a good sign. Turned out there was a poker tournament going on. Portions were large tasty and inexpensive. Not fantastic but filled us up

We ate here the first night we were in town because it was close to our hotel and we liked it so much that we went back three nights later. The food was very good and the service was superb. The only negative was their parking lot is very small and both times we visited we had a difficult time... More

We ate at this restaurant twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner, the day after. The service was good. The food was fine, but nothing special. The food seemed fresh, it just wasn't very seasoned or spiced. If you tell them your staying at the hotel next door, you get a 10% discount on your meal, which is nice.

This is a regular place for us. Service is usually awesome, the food is very good, and the portions are huge. Just share an entree. The margaritas are also excellent!
