Fantastic salsa and cheese with chips? Check. Home made tortillas? Yes. Good top shelf margarita? Check. Killer shrimp fajitas? Yes. Best Chile Relleno in Texas. I think so. This little joint is the plain old cafe with very good good and great service. Everything was terrific - we are coming back. This was an excellent find. It goes by the... More

Best in TexMex in Waxahachie. Just off the Historic Downtown Square. Spend the day and enjoy it all.

If Tex-Mex is a taste you've acquired, this is the place to indulge it. It's really, really good. Every time I try something different, and I'm never disappointed. My wife and I (we're retired) eat here often, selecting from their Very Large combination plates, and we have more than enough to eat. And, it's all tex-mex good. Sheesh, my mouth... More

Great hole-in-the-wall Tex-Mex!!!! The food is wonderful! The chips and salsa are warm and fresh, perfert way to start a meal! :) Don't forget the fried avocadoes. The service is hit or miss; they are friendly just slow at times.

This is one of the best Mexican Restaurants I have been to in a long time. The food is great, the service was excellent. It is not a big fancy restaurant, it is a family business and it was great. It is family oriented and it has a bar on the other side seperated. Great place to eat. You should... More

Wonderful wait staff. The food was awful. The chips and salsa were great, the chicken enchilladas were filled with dark meat chicken and the sour cream sauce was not good. The beans were the only thing I could eat. My husband had eggs and chorizo and said it was passable. We should have waited in line for the Dove's Nest!!!

This was our first trip to Plato Loco, and I must say that we were very impressed. It's not easy to impress an authentic Mexican because there are so many places out there that say they serve Mexican food and it's just straight off the truck, so to speak. This place actually made me want to see if my grandma... More
