Not wanting to pay GC NP prices we dropped into this mexican for breakfast. The interior is unique and the food superb. Great find in an area not always known for offering good value for money.

We ate here at the recommendation of the hotel staff, and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I tried chicken enchiladas with mole, and the mole was excellent! Not too spicy, and a little sweet. Very different than other moles I've had in the past. The margarita was to die for! The bartender certainly didn't skimp on the tequila, and it... More

Don't like to do bad reviews usually can't be bothered to write up rather give positives where found. However, the following describes the experience: Attracted by the authentic Mexican ambience and looking forward to it. Ok got a seat and drinks quickly, waiter polite and helpful so no issue with service staff. Meal arrives (chilli con carne dish) is virtually... More

Plaza Bonita was recommended by a local and we weren't disappointed. You will get a lot of food for the price. It was also within walking distance of almost everything in town. We also has a very nice server.

My daughter proclaimed this as the second best restaurant on our ten day trip. The restaurant is a very short walk from any of the hotels. The food was very good, not overpriced and the restaurant was very clean. There were three of is and we all enjoyed our meals. The portions were generous, so it was great to have... More

Just a short walk from our hotel in Tusayan. We had beef fajitas and burritos for dinner and we were well satisfied after traveling all day. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.

Look out and good luck eating at this place. If you are craving Mexican food I strongly recommend waiting until you get into Williams or Flagstaff. Very average food for a high price and I mean just that. My wife ordered the chicken enchiladas and the chicken was obviously frozen and placed in a microwave prior to being stuffed into... More

I gave them the near impossible task of a meal that was gluten, soy and dairy free. They were patient and went to the kitchen three times while I was ordering to check with the chef on ingredients. In the end I had some plain steak, guacamole and corn tortillas. Pretty good considering the lack of flavors they could work... More

The service was great, and our server was very friendly and efficient. The food was just average. If you like Taco Bell, you won't mind eating here but you will mind paying $12-$15 per entree. The chips and salsa were the best part of the meal. The rice and beans both tasted like they came out of cans, and the... More

Way overpriced for less than average food. I know costs can be higher in touristy places. Come on $15 burritos?? That did not include rice and beans. $5 for a single tamale with the maize as dry as the canyon trail. Plus they added the 18% gratuity automatically.
