One of my favorite places to dine for lunch. When I was working at nearby Fort Eustis, we came here regularly. Lots of farewell luncheons were held here too. The food, service, and overall quality was great. Parking here is easy and that is a plus.

Have been to the other Plaza's in town, but this was my first visit to the new location. We had a great lunch and an excellent server. I prefer this location over the others and will return. I had the lunch fajitas which were very good, but no match for the Fantastic Quesa Der Mar that my wife had. You... More

Have been to several of these restaurants in several cities in Virginia and consistent quality of food and service. Shrimp Tacos are perfection. Served in soft shell with cabbage slaw on top. This location offers good atmosphere and easy access from Interstate 64 and surrounding roads. Lots of parking.

After a day of errands, we decided to give this Plaza another try for dinner last night. We usually drive to the one in Hampton by AMC Theatre and it is WONDERFUL. This place is awful!! We were promptly greeted and seated. Our server, Domingo, arrived a few minutes later. We asked for water while we pondered the menu. He... More

We met our friends for a late lunch. Zavli was our waiter. He did a wonderful job checking on us throughout the meal. My fajitas were delicious and my husband had the combination plate which was great also. We enjoyed a different beer each . Great selection of brews on tap. Our booth was in the back of the restaurant... More

Love Mexican food but you never know what you are going to get. The sauce usually is good or it that dark dirty look and spices do not agree with you, But this was good. If you are going mexican you have to have the works. Sour cream, Guacamole, rice, bean, cheese the whole thing. But I have been finding... More

We waited for ever to be seated. Then we got a waiter that did not even speak English. When we asked what kind of soda they have His reply "soda yes yes". Food was ok. Little pricey, the manager was rude. Would not go back
