I travel a lot and I was shocked to find good Mexican food in a small town in MN. The prices are very reasonable.

Our table included a party of 7. Our appetizer appeared very quickly along with extra plates and napkins. The 7 entrees followed soon after. Everyone was satisfied, with even 2 boxes required because more food than expected. We had time to eat and talk together.

Friendly staff, great drinks and generous portions. Especially good are the seafood dishes. Shrimp tastes like it is fresh out of the Florida gulf. My favorite Mexican restaurant in Minnesota.

Food came out quick and hot. Service was friendly. Happy hour had some good deals - drinks were good but nothing special or unique.

This is some great eating for not a lot of money. Staff always seem genuinely happy to have our business, and anxious to make sure we have a nice time. The food is consistently great, served piping hot and in generous portions.

I always like to go to Grand Plaza and have the Friday Special, Poco Loco. Excellent meal and always enough for supper too. Service id prompt and friendly. Restaurant is clean and staff is pleasant. You will not be disappointed.
