Had dinner here after a day at the Grand Canyon. Many places were closed because of MLK day. Some of the best Mexican food I have had. We shared a pitcher of margaritas. We didn't realize it was going to be $33. Very pricey for Mexican food but everything in the Grand canyon area was expensive. Server was awesome!

Visiting from Australia, we are not connoisseur's of Mexican food and love to eat it while travelling in the USA. We chose Plaza Bonita for its colourful, busy, happy atmosphere. We were seated and served quickly and we enjoyed our meal. As the evening progressed the restaurant became quite busy so we recommend going early to beat the rush like... More

Not many highly recommended restaurants in the area so we ended up at this establishment. Typical Mexican food fare which was good but nothing spectacular. The chips and salsa were complimentary and the salsa had a great flavor. The staff was friendly but seem to be slow at getting our order and several staff seemed to be trying to take... More

This is a mediocre Mexican restaurant, but they are high priced - perhaps because of their location? Ususally if you order a house wine, it is a little less pricewise. There was no price on the menu, so we should have been suspicious. We had two glasses each and discovered when we got our bill that they were $8.25 each... More

This restaurant is one of the few just outside the Grand Canyon. It offered a 10% discount to people who stayed at our hotel, so we figured we'd try it out. We both had Chimichangas for lunch. They were ok if you're into Mexican food. Both dishes were brought out almost instantly; which indicates to me the food was prepared... More

They were short staffed so service was a bit slow and not very pleasant. There was a 15 minute wait even though they were not even half full. The food was much too spicy for me. Not very flavorful either and the whole restaurant had an unpleasant smell of oily, fried food. Large menu with many choices but not many... More

Stopped in after a day of sightseeing. Famished and ready to try something new, we never eat at chains while on a trip and spotted this place! We were seated and it took quite some time before our server approached the table. When I write this, I mean we had already read through the menu and made our choices on... More

We walked in to Plaza Bonita based on what we saw from the car. The restaurant was surprisingly busy for the off season but they had a table for us. The food was very enjoyable. The service was no slower than any other restaurant that is perhaps unexpectedly busy. I would definitely eat there again if I was ever in... More
