Came by for lunch. we sat in the bar and it was not busy. only other one table with two seated. the bar tender was seemingly not interested in serving and we saw her make drinks for the table and fill the remainder of the drink in a glass and drink it. even more surprising was when we were waiting...

I would give this 3.5 if I could. I've eaten here several times and the food is terrific. The burrito and fajitas being my favorites. Good chips and salsa. I didn't care too much for the queso (it was white queso, not sure if they have several kinds). While it TASTES teriffic, it tends to turn into a solid dense... More

This place is a great place to go eat standard mexican cuisine. Everytime I have been, the meal was good, and the price was not bad for this area. I cannot say that any specific dish was memorable, only that there are no surprises. Nothing worse than eating at one of the numerous overpriced restaurants in this area, and getting... More

We had a family of 39 of us and they were very nice in accommodating all of our needs. All of the staff were great. The food was excellent.

I love this place! High quality food served by friendly staff. Manager is very attentive and is present interacting with the patrons. Large bar frequented by patrons. Reasonable prices. Clean and high energy atmosphere. Always full and busy, which is the sign of a restaurant that is liked by the community. Only negative would be the food could be hotter... More

I can't figure out how anyone can give this place a rating above 1 star. The food is just atrocious and everything tastes like it was made earlier in the day - definitely not made to order - and I'm guessing that the ingredients pretty much come from a can, a jar, or an opened package. There are thankfully now... More

We met friends here for lunch, the food was decent. We ordered a big variety of dishes from burritos to salads. Service is fair, but asking to speak with a manager was ridiculous. He was rude to us and we weren't complaining just interested in what their catering entails. Would be better off having Giant or Safeway cater an office... More

I have eaten at Plaza 5 or 6 times now, the food has been consistent as well as the service. It is usually busy, but I have never had a long wait to sit or to receive food.
