It has been two years since I have been here, only because I come here traveling through. The food is still awesome and the staff are great. A must stop if you are in the area.

We were here on a tour of the Panhandle and stayed at a Hotel within walking distance, which was great. We did wait for a table but it was a nice night and we sat outside with a buzzer to let us know when table...was ready. Very busy place and lots of interactions with servers and managers. We will be back even if we have to wait a bit for table or food. The food and margaritas are top notch! Nice add to our tour of the area.More

A wonderful restaurant in the middle of the Texas panhandle. Excellent flour tortillas, great service, fresh tasty food. Lots of options, good cold beer, and the charro beans are really recommended.

We have stopped here many times since we found this place. I have even reviewed it before. It is on our route from our home to the mountains. We try to plan our trip in order to have a meal at the Plaza!! We had...a salsa tasting. Several were very hot (not a problem for us salsa lovers), one was very fresh and bright tasting (tomato excellence), and one was over the moon - fantastic (tomatillos, Jalapeño, mayo and avocado!!!). The Tacos Locos were crazy good as always. Our waitress Nikki was wonderful too.More

Never get what was ordered - ever! (Everyone around us who came in after us were served before our messed up order came out.) Shredded chicken taco came out ground beef - never was asked if it could be replaced for correct one. Rice instead...of pappas as ordered; refried beans instead of charro. Just messed up! One server never quit chomping on her gum. No social distancing practiced here!More

Ate dinner here on March 4. Had a combination plate. Good portions and food was hot and tasty. Great cocktails and draft beer in frosted cold mugs. Service was good and friendly. Would be happy to return and recommend.

She will not take time to ger your order completed before she goes away. Then when your order comes, it is WRONG! She blames "them" for being incorrect. Even the other servers are embarrased by her lack of service. Food is decent and atmosphere ok....Need some customer service guidance with their hostesses. Not very welcoming or hospitable.More

Great service everytime we stop here. The food is authentic and delicious. Chips and salsa come with your meal and so did hot sopapias. I had to eat my tortilla soup with a fork because the chicken pieces and veggies were so large. The guacamole...was delicious too. We will be back as we travel to Colorado often.More

We wanted to eat TexMex and found this restaurant. Service and decor was great... food was terrific....skillet enchiladas, tortilla soup, AND the margaritas! A very satisfying meal. Oh yeah, the chips and salsa were great , too. We would love to go back if we...have the opportunity.More

We met local friends for dinner. They recommended The Plaza and said it was one of the best Mexican restaurants in Childress. Big menu with lots of choices. Portions are generous. Located on the main highway through town. Easy in and out.
