Better prices than other Mexican restaurant across the street.

Their Carnitas are always a winner here - try mixing your salsa with your rice = great! The $1 tacos and frozen cocktails are worth the trip by themselves.

My husband, born in the southwest, doesn't like this restaurant chain much but sometimes it is the only Mexican food we can find. I, however, am not as picky and really enjoy the restaurant. So, go and see who you agree with!

Other than the staff being friendly and courteous that is all you can say that is good about Plaza Tapatia at this location. We ordered a luncheon special and could not wait to pay the bill and leave it was so bad. The food is not Mexican and you can tell from the preparation it must be mass produced. It... More

I dine at Plaza Azteca every time I visit Ocean City! The food is delicious, the prices are great, and the service fast. I highly recommend the Quesadilla Marina - it’s filled with delicious shrimp, cheese, and vegetables. Dinners are served in ample portions. You will definitely not leave the restaurant hungry! (Especially with the complimentary chips and salsa.) The... More

Have been to the restaurant three times. Each time, the food was good, the quantity of food was good, prices are reasonable, and the service has been prompt and attentive. The chips and salsa that are given while the meal is being prepared is very good. The only problem that has occurred has been that they should have one or... More

NIce staff. Call first because in the off season you never know when then will be open. Food is good, basic. Chips and salsa are quite tasty.

Not the fanciest place in town, but consistently better Mexican food. Carnitas are my favorite, but their fajitas are excellent too. Friendly staff.

I have enjoyed dining at Plaza Tapatia for years and have ordered off their vegetarian menu for just as long. This past weekend, however, I decided to ask my waiter what they use to make the refried beans that come included with most dishes, and especially with their "vegetarian" dishes. I was shocked to find out they use LARD to... More

This is a chain but still gives a good product for the money. The seafood faitas are the best seafood dish in the resort for the money. Located in west Ocean City and rarely has a waiting line.
