Always Great Food! Service Fast ! Eat in or take out will not let you down. Don't eat too many chips and salsa prior to meal...plates are large!

We came here years ago and returned because we remembered it to be good. We were not disappointed, the food was great and the service excellent too. Going through this town will bring us here again.

Went for dinner, ordered pollo fundiddo, it was the best I have ever had! Considering that there is not much in this town to eat! This was a rare find. Clean and courteous restaurant. I would definitely go back.

Plaza Mexico has been our staple place to eat out when returning to Charles City. The seafood burrito and shrimp salad are always good after eating too many chips and delicious salsa. From our wedding to carry out, Plaza is fantastic.
