“Delicious and plentiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

We chose this restaurant when we discovered the restaurant we had planned to eat at was closed for a private party. The service was great, lots of flavorful food for very reasonable prices. Comfortable atmosphere added to the experience. We will probably visit again during our week here.

“Satisfy your Mexican Craving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a good Mexican restaurant; it has a large menu, and the waiter was very attentive. It also has a great location--being right on Front Street. I liked how it had its own vegetarian portion of the menu, although it had only typical Tex-Mex entrees. I also ordered a Monster Margarita, which is humongous, and it would serve about four people (there were unfortunately only two of us). There are some special discounts during the week, which is when I would probably go back. But overall the prices were very reasonable, the service was attentive, and the atmosphere was pleasant and inviting.

“Better than the reviews.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

We wanted something different than seafood. Surprised to find a Mexican restaurant in the middle of Beaufort. Clean, service was good. Food was good. Needed a little more seasoning. Would definitely go back.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

We were craving Mexican food and took a chance on Plaza Mexico. What a great find!! I had the nachos and was blown away by the sheer complexity of flavors!! Turns out they make their own cheese!! That's the secret ingredient!!! The folks with me, also fussy New Yorkers ordered carnita tacos and guacamole salad. All of it was delicious! For The Margarita llover, orden The Monster Margarita, it's emough for 4.

Fussy New Yorker(s),

Thank you for the visit! We look forward to having all of you (and more of you) back into our restaurant. And yes, the Monster Margarita is definitely big enough for four! Thank you for your review, your visit and we look forward to a visit soon!
