Pretty Good Mexican

The service was very good, servers were friendly and attentive. Food was tasty, plentiful and reasonably priced. They had shredded beef burritos which are hard to find (they are usually ground beef) which is why we went there. My husband said it was very good. I had a three-burrito sampler, which... read more

Just in town to pick up our son at a hockey camp and we had some time to kill. Very good Mexican food and fantastic margaritas. When they bring you the complementary taco chips ask for melted white cheddar. Yum! Prices were fantastic for what you get the portions are huge. Highly recommended!

Had a wonderful experience at Gran Plaza Mexican Grill. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I hope to return soon to this great restaurant. If you are in the Faribault area, you won't want to miss this restaurant.

Very good Mexican food; flavorful and filling. We loved the rich, carmel-covered flan dessert. Authentic atmosphere, friendly service.

Not much to say, you want mexican food you come here. The service is way better than El Tequila's, the employees are actually nice and respectful. Generous portions, I always end up taking half of it home. The food tastes great, and it's nice to get a daiquiri with dinner.
