Amazing! The Happy Hour menu is bountiful - so much food for two people - and we only ordered four items. The service was also very good and it was a first time experience.

No free chips and salsa (big disappointment!) but the pork carnitas and empanadas were quite delicious! Very fresh and flavorful. I'd return for more next time I visit the Plaza. Service was average but certainly not poor.

The place was completely dead over the lunch hour which should have tipped us off to go elsewhere. The food was all ok (all three in our party ordered different types of tacos), but the facility felt dirty/grimy and the service was not impressive. There...More
