Only positive things to say about this restaurant. Food was excellent, portions were adequate and I will return there once I relocate to Lubbock in the next few months. Thank God it was not a chain restaurant.

Beautiful place with nice atmosphere, quiet, excellent service, and the food is just simply delicious. The crispy relleno is wonderful, the smothered sopapilla ditto... and Plaza Burger is super if you don't want actual Mexican food! It's huge, with avocados in addition to all the...usual hamburger trimmings. In fact we haven't had anything that wasn't great. Tortilla chips are thin and crisp, seasoned salt on the table, and the salsa has a very nice flavor and isn't too hot.More

We have become regulars at the Plaza! This has become a bi-weekly habit for us! lol We absolutely love this place! I'm a very picky foodie, and the Plaza meets and beats my expectations every visit. I love their chile rellanos and enchiladas, the chips...and queso, the guisada is scrumptious, any my husband orders the chile verde every time we're there! The service is always great and we can count on the food being consistently delicious!More

My wife & I went to go eat somewhere so she already had Lunch somewhere & she was not too hungry so we can here at the Plaza and the one of the managers him & I R good friends. So if I want to...eat something different dishes I ask my friend what's good on the menu. So last night while we was at the Plaza I could not make my mind I was wanting so I look more on the menu I saw they had Tortilla Soup w/ Chicken, so I got that I got a Large Bowl of Tortilla Soup with Jalepenos on the side so the waiter (Jay) ask me what kinds of peppers I wanted so he name a few one was the Sauteed Jalepenos so I can yes. He brought my food out and I saw how they made their Sauteed Jalepenos add to my Tortilla Soup "BOY I WAS IN HEAVEN" that was the best meal I like. So if u like what I had get it HUMMMMMM GOOD."More

When we arrived at The Plaza Restaurant I was surprised at how large it is. Yet the ambiance inside didn't feel like a large chain diner. The food was very good, especially the sour cream sauce. YUM! Price was good; atmosphere was good; and food...was good.More

After our meeting, a group of us went to this restaurant for lunch. It was packed which is always a good sign. I had the chicken fajita burrito with refried beans and rice. Everything was delicious. The salsa was simply outstanding.

Excellent TexMex and excellent service! The food is always served fresh and hot. A manager always visits the table and checks on you. The waitresses have been professionally trained and they know the menu. The desserts are so good too! Try a strawberry sopapilla or...the fried ice cream. The entire building is always clean, despite the fact that this is a very crowded restaurant. They serve the best of TexMex in Lubbock.More

I love Mexican food and The Plaza served up some of the best I have ever had! I had the Chicken Fajita enchiladas with Jalapeno Cream sauce and it was amazing. My wife had their fajitas and they were the best, ever. The atmosphere is...fun and inviting and our server was fabulous! By far my new favorite restaurant in Lubbock!More

They do offer a kids menu. And it's a back room big enough to accommodate a large group
