“Surprisingly great food”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Weary after battling traffic for much of the day, we stopped off in Newport News for the evening and a bite to eat. The desk clerk at our hotel sent us to Plaza Azteca, promising us great food and margaritas.

"I'm here until 9," she said. "Stop back by to tell me what you think." With a recommendation that brave, we gave it a try.

What we found was really delicious food -- especially the chicken dishes. The beef combo items were ok too, but the chicken scored in burrito, quesadilla, and tamale. Margaritas are plenty big and met with approval -- both the frozen and on-the-rocks varieties.

We left with only one regret -- that Plaza Azteca doesn't have a strong presence in Northern Virginia/DC/Maryland/Delaware. We'd love to visit more often!

“Outstanding food!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We were driving through Newport News on a Sunday night, just looking for a restaurant and stumbled in. WONDERful menu, great value. I had the enchilada San Miguel, big chunks of tender, moist white chicken and a terrific brown sauce. Attentive staff. We were seated upstairs in an area that was actually kind of depressing - this place has no decor at all. But the service was excellent and fast, and the food is worth it!
