We had a group of of 9 people that came at various times. It was frequently hard to get the attention of a waitress for a drink or an additional order. Servers were friendly and prices reasonable. Portion size was big, taste was ok.

I liked Plaza. Not much too look at as it sits in a little mini-mall. But we received great service, very friendly and fast. The chicken in my enchilada was crazy moist and perfectly done. The tamale was flavored nicely. Free ice-cream with cinnamon on a giant cinnamon chip was nice too. Great little place for lunch, a diamond in... More

Restaurant is very near work. We go there quite often. The service is always fast, and the food is consistently good. Complimentary chips and salsa, and small dessert.

The food is always FAST & reliably good. We have been going here for years. Sometimes my family of 5, sometimes just my husband & myself. They always start you with complimentary chips & salsa, which is refillable. Service is attentive, asking to refill drinks, they even have been known to take photos for visiting groups. When they say, "hot... More

It's always nice to walk into a restaurant that serves good food with timely service. The food is always well prepared and served hot. The complimentary chips and salsa is a nice way to start the meal and the small complimentary dessert is a nice way to end the meal. I especially like chimichangas and fajitas.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in the Des Moines metro area. My son and I eat here at least once a week. The chips and salsa are delicious and the service is super fast and friendly. I have had many items on the menu, but now order the carne asada every time. It is the best carne asada in... More

I stopped by this restaurant on a whim for lunch. The menu is huge and comes with photos. I asked the waiter in Spanish what the best dish was and told him I like spicy dishes, he suggest the pollo loco. While flavorful chicken & green & red pepper strips served over slightly flavored rice smothered with cheese. It was... More
