We met our kids at The Plaza in Childress as they traveled from Fort Worth, and we traveled to Fort Worth. We chose the restaurant because we really like The Plaza in Amarillo. The food was good. The menu does not have as many items...as the Amarillo menu. I had wanted the stuffed avocado, but it was not on the menu. The restaurant has a very small town feel. The service was good.More

Childress is not on our usual cross-country routes. But while on our way from Colorado Springs to Decatur, we stopped here for the night and found this restaurant gold mine! And learned a few new things. The Mexican Papas and Charro Beans! Thanks for the...great service KC!More

It was slow getting seated and order taken, but I think that was because we arrived at 1:30 and staff was occupied cleaning up from a busy lunch rush. After that everything was on track for an excellent lunch. They have a large menu of...Mexican dishes and a few American food items. I think it is safe to say everything is good, and portions are generous. I had something new for me: an avacado half filled with carne asada, then dipped in the batter like a chili relleno and deep fried. GOOD!More

The food was ok but it was FREEZING in the back room where they seated us. I asked the waitress about turning g up the heat but it remained cold. Even with our coats on. So we took our food with us.:(

Tasty Mexican food with space to park our RV. Caught this restaurant on our way back from Colorado vacay. It was great to have good hot sauce, enchiladas and tacos that spoke “welcome home”! Service was efficient and friendly!

Great Mexican food. Chili Relleno stuffed with ground beef, papas, taco, cheese enchilada, and guacamole were all outstanding. Clean restaurant. Good service. Personal manager oversight. Great A/C for 100+ degree summer in Texas. Just traveling through. Will stop here again. Highly recommend for great Tex...MexMore

Late on a Saturday drive home, we decided to eat here due to the number of cars in the lot. It did not disappoint at all. Harley was our waitress and was super friendly with great advice regarding the menu. The best Reallano I have...ever eaten and the charro beans superb. Fresh salsa was an added treat. We will definitely dine here again if we have the chance. The lady in Vernon at the hotel knew about this place and it is an hour away!More

Every town in Texas has its Tex-Mex restaurant..., maybe two ! In most cases i is hard to tell one from another. The Plaza Restaurant stood out above most due to service and quality of food. It would be a destination for good Tex-Mex no...matter in which city it was located.More

Local restaurant close to hotel. Surprisingly good Tex-Mex. We are always leery of the unknown, this place was amazing. Wish we lived closer. Good service and food. Price was reasonable.

First time eating there. Patrons and staff were very friendly on a busy Saturday evening. I enjoyed a ribeye tampiquena style and a good house margarita.

My husband and I stopped overnight in Childress on our way to Kansas. This restaurant was recommended to us and they sure delivered! I ordered a tostada compuesta and my husband ordered Chicken Fried salad. They were both excellent. The vegetables were fresh and crisp...and they tasted amazing. They serve homemade chips and salsa before you get your meal, and they were the best. In fact, the salsa was the best we have ever had anywhere in our travels. We went away with a large cup of it to enjoy later. We highly recommend this great restaurant, and the service was great too!More

We have been to this location numerous times and loved it. This visit was not up to par. Our order was not correct. We did not get our bar order until after we started eating, and the food was not as good as it used...to be. New cook maybe?More
