At Plaza Linda, the Mexican Restauarant and Cantina is beautiful inside, with generous portions served by very friendly staffers. I loved the lighting - colorful & charming. The curb appeal of this restaurant may not beckon you in. Open the door, and WOW! You realize you made a great choice & dining will be a treat!

We don't get back here often enough. Good chips & salsa and very tasty almost mex food. Busy when football is on but good service and really good food from the basics through specialties. You won't leave hungry.

I assume this is Plaza Linda although I do not see a name. We have been here for all 3 meals and the food as always been great. Service at breakfast, especially early, can be spotty. Usually someone from kitchen will take care of you And it is not really a Mexican restaurant - I understand it is owned by... More
