I don't know how this place got any high ratings. It was disgusting. I ordered the crab enchilada. Not only was there barely any crab, but it was substituted for about 10 cloves if minced garlic. See picture below. My son's bean and cheese burrito with enchilada sauce tasted like flour gravy. My daughter's grilled cheese was stale and had... More

The food here was good, especially the Mole. The servings were large leaving us with leftovers. Staff was all friendly and accommodating. Good chips and salsa. I would eat here again.

A Monday night out with friends, the service was good, the food was good, the parking is a problem. The restaurant shares parking with a hotel and even on a Monday night there was very limited parking near the restaurant. Price was about right.

We had a family gathering here and had the most awesome service. The food was fantastic. I love their chile rellenos. Our service was so attentive with keeping our drinks coming and keeping sodas refilled. They were so accommodating. I can't say enough good things about Plaza Bonita.

We stopped in late and the chips were hot! Service was very attentive and the food was great! The fajita burro was really flavorful and our waiter took the time to explain the menu to us since this was our first time here. Next time in cottonwood we will stop again

I came here with a group of people because I heard they had good food. What a disappointment. The service was OK but the food was below par for what I was expecting. I was really surprised that the beans were awful. I also felt the prices were also a little high. I won't be going back.

My wife and I ordered off the lunch menu. While the price was right, $7.50 per entree, the taste had a lot to be desired. I ordered the chicken chimichanga. I had taken my first bite and I knew something was not right. I let my wife sample a bite and she smelled it before taking a bite. We both... More

I'm very picky when it comes to "Spanish" food. They have good food, large portions, pleasant wait staff. Inexpensive compared to other area restaurants and you'll probably have leftovers!

The only thing better than the amazing authentic food was the attentive service staff. Food was delicious and plentiful. From the warm chips and fresh salsa, guac and cheese dip to the fried ice cream. Absolutely delicious. You know it's a good sign when you walk in and the restaurant is packed with locals. Will be back!
