Have eaten at all of the Platas in town. Have been patron since mama first started. Proud to have them on town. They don't compete with anyone cause they have their own taste & style. Es muy Bueno!!

I've eaten breakfast here a few times when in Barstow. It is good food for a good price. It isn't fancy, but offers good home style cooking, and the set up allows you to see into the kitchen which I like when I'm eating a hole in the wall kind of places so I can see its cleanliness with my...

These chain of restaurants are family owned by different members of the family. Each one is unique but they all seem to have a very authentic home cooked, layed back feeling? Nothing very fancy but it does taste good. Fills the belly.

Always a good place for lunch. Good food at good prices and well air conditioned. Enough to make up for being in barstow to start with.

I didn't think I would ever give 5 stars to a Mexican restaurant, but this place deserves it! As a senior citizen I can say I have eaten at many many Mexican restaurant over the years but the food here was "out of this world", in quality, flavor, appearance and taste. They make their own chips which were light and... More

No atmosphere, order at the counter, sit at simple tables, very inexpensive, been there for years per another customer, 20 types of burritos, 4 types of quesadillas, 7 types of nachos, etc. It was a simple supper but very good! Location is off the main drives in a simple bright yellow block building.

Visit Plata's, you won't be disappointed. They have the best burritos in Barstow. The seating is somewhat limited but the food is exceptionally good.

There are four locations around the Barstow area. I've been to two of them and both had amazingly good Mexican food. The restaurants are not fancy, more of a take out type atmosphere, in other words something you might actually find south of the border. What it lacks in atmosphere, it totally makes up in the quality of the food.... More

I am from Texas, and know great Mexican Food... this place is Good Food. I was conducting business at Ft. Irwin, and ate here one night. The tables and chairs are all mis-matched, and the place was clean and well organized (although to the "un-trained" it would not appear so). The service was great, the food was great... I enjoyed...

Cheap and cheerful, but very good value. If the locals are eating there, I'd take that as a good recommendation
