We have eaten twice so far at Plaza Azteca and both times the food has been awesome! Prices are great and the Guacamole made to order at the table is tough to beat! Can't wait to go back, again!

Came for lunch. Chicken fajitas were good as were the enchiladas. Service was terrible !! I can only assume our server was new. We had to wave her over three times just to place an order and the dining room was nearly empty.

Would give 4 1/2 stars. Tableside guacamole is star of the show. And they actually cook a chile rellano properly. Out of our way a bit but we will come here again when moving around northern virginia. Clean, bright, good table service. Sometimes you just...More

We had a large group it was hard for them to coordinate and accommodate us despite the reservation we made week in advance they were not ready for us. The food is as expected not very good but, everyone was friendly and attentive

Had lunch with a friend and was pleasantly surprised. I'm not a big fan of mexican food bit this restaurant had a great and varied menu with both lunch and dinner selections. Food was excellent and will definitely return again.

Like many other Mexican restaurants, dinner starts with chips and salsa - both are quite good. We got an optional cheese sauce - highly recommended. As for the main course, bring your appetite - the portions are very large. i had the carnitas - larges...More
