“Fussy New Yorker finds Mexican jewel in Beauford”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

We were craving Mexican food and took a chance on Plaza Mexico. What a great find!! I had the nachos and was blown away by the sheer complexity of flavors!! Turns out they make their own cheese!! That's the secret ingredient!!! The folks with me, also fussy New Yorkers ordered carnita tacos and guacamole salad. All of it was delicious! For The Margarita llover, orden The Monster Margarita, it's emough for 4.

Fussy New Yorker(s),

Thank you for the visit! We look forward to having all of you (and more of you) back into our restaurant. And yes, the Monster Margarita is definitely big enough for four! Thank you for your review, your visit and we look forward to a visit soon!

Reviewed August 9, 2012

I've eaten Mexican food from Texas to California. This aint it. Maybe it's the best you can get around here, but not for me.

Thank you for your review!

We would love to have you come back to our restaurant. We can accommodate our food to your taste, if needed light cheese, more sauce or none. We love to please our customers just as much as our customers love our hot Mexican cheese dip, but we know the love for the cheese is more!
