“Surprise!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

I first off couldn't believe we were eating Mexican with a wife who loves seafood but we had a late lunch at this very clean and well kept restaurant. Our glasses were never empty and I will say probably the top 2 best fajitas I have ever had. Staff was super friendly and food was great...cold drinks and reasonable prices...look forward to eating here next year.

“Basic Mexican Fare; A Good Value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

There is a total absence of quality ethnic food in the area mostly due to locals who (except for transplants like me) are not interested in exotic foods (a burrito is going out on a limb.) So keep your expectation low--the food is like chain restaurant Mexican food in suburban areas. Prices are fair, service is super nice. For the area it is an above average restaurant.

“Delicious Mexican food in Beaufort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

My husband and I really enjoyed the fried Tilapia - though we were a little surprised at first to see the lips, noses, and eyes on the fish. The food was delicious, and a wonderful value - especially late on a rainy evening when most other Beaufort restaurants were closed. The wine glasses were also very generous, and the waiter was very pleasant. We would definitely go back on our next visit to Beaufort.

“Hearty Mex-American food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

Last weekend we ate dinner here two nights in a row, once as a party of four, then as a group of 14 (9 adults and 5 kids). My girlfriend and I split an order of the chicken chilaquiles, a new addition to the menu. We enjoyed it so much we split one again the 2nd night-- it was just as good the second time! Several members of our large group had margaritas and we all thought they were excellent. Another thing that impressed me was how the attentive staff thoughtfully made sure ALL of the kids got their food orders delivered quickly. The adults were happy to wait longer for our food as we enjoyed drinks and conversation, but the kids (aged 10-15) would've gotten impatient. Lastly, as usual, Plaza Mexico's generous portions left all of us quite satiated.

“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

This place is located in the heart of downtown Beaufort. Nice to have a Mexican restaurant here. The food is standard Mexican. There are a number of tv's in here and makes it feel like a cafeteria more than a nice restaurant. Food is ok, wait staff. Definitely a good place to go with young children.
