“The best burrito in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

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.

“Great Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

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. The Carne Asada burrito is excellent. You could pay alot more at a fancy Mexican restaurant and got get anything even close to this food. I make a point of stopping everytime I go through Barstow.

“Great Food - worth the trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2010

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 the experience all together. This place is worth stopping in.

“Plenty of Mexican's eating there - always a good sign!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2010

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

“Best Mexican food I have ever had... if...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2010 via mobile

Best Mexican food I have ever had... if you like Alberto's, Robertiro'z and any other 24 hour, basic mexican place then only go there for midnight munchie runs (platas closes at 7) the food has been satisfying the locals (including me) for over 30 years and have opened 3 locations in a small town, its all family run and quality...
