My husband and I went for a late lunch and were happily surprised! The tableside guacomole was very yummy! They make it just how you want it, so all is good there. The chips and salsa they serve is good, nothing spectacular, but yummy. We both ordered drinks, the mexican mojito for him, and... read more

Drinks were average-honestly we make better margaritas at home. Food was loaded with salt, that was literally the only thing I tasted. I ordered a seafood dish trying to be as healthy as I could in a Mexican place, but it was fruitless! There was so much sauce and salt on everyone's meals (2 couples so 4 different dishes) that...

Went here the other night and it was the best Mexican food I've had in a long time! The Piña Loka was amazing! It's a whole half of a pineapple with chicken, beef, steak, peppers, and onions inside! They also have a new Happy Hour! I would definitely recommend this place!!

Made the mistake of dining here while on vacation. First red flag was finding a piece of foil in our glass of wine. Second offense (and really gross) was discovering a paper wrapper buried in our bowl of salsa. Couldn't get our server to come to our table so called the manager over. He apologized and said he would give... More

The decor and Mexican music make you feel like you're in Mexico. Immediately, I liked this place. The guacamole, made table-side, is fresh and excellent. Waitstaff and managers are very attentive and they create a welcoming atmosphere. Birthday songs are song in Spanish. They food is superb. Authentic and very fresh. We will have to return another day to try... More

I think there are better mexican restaurants in the immediate area but I never disagree to going to Plaza Azteca with friends. Their margaritas are a little pricey, but that's northern Virginia for you. Their staff is really friendly always, except for the one waiter who told us it wasn't happy hour when the sign at our table clearly said... More

We are there for a going away party in October. My food was average and service above average. I wouldn't suggest going here but if someone else wanted to go I wouldn't object.

My husband and I are Plaza addicts! We started going to different Plazas in Newport News Va and were thrilled to see one here in Sterling Va. The management team is truly wonderful. .thanks Paul and Jose!!! They treat us like family each time we go there. The food has never been disappointing and seems to get better each time.... More

It was a nice enough atmosphere and service but the food was just not all that great. This location went into a building where a Friday's used to be, but they have redone the place to look authentic and not at all like a Friday's. good job with the remodel.
