I'm not a fan of chain restaurants, but Plaza Azteca does a great job of keeping their food consistent across all their restaurants. The food is always served quickly and tastes delicious. This is a great alternative to fast food when you are short on time.

Typical Americanized Mexican food. The food is plentiful. The service is good. There are several locations in the local area. The buildings are kept in excellent repair, remodeled every few years. The food is good. Upon being seated, you are given corn ships and salsa. There is fresh guacamole that is mixed at the table.

Lost their lease and MOVING to 12835 Jefferson Ave (former Steve & John's Steak House). Hope they can maintain the service at the new location.

A large group of us went for dinner and received good service and good food. The menu is large with the typical Mexican choices. Atmosphere was good and is a good place for families, as we had several children with us. Would go back if ever again in the area.

The guacamole was freshly made to order and was excellent. We enjoyed our fajitas but they were average. Service was good. I would return, but would just order the guacamole and chips.

Food was good and my margarita was slamming. Had a nice time with a group of friends. The shrimp tostada was a good appetizer .
