Having lived in So Cal for over 10 years, my expectations are high for Mexican restaurants. Plaza Mexico exceeded expectations. The staff, although late on a Sunday night, were friendly and tolerated my horrible Spanish. Food was great and portions large.

The margaritas were the best part of dinner. The large is a very generous portion. The entrees were good to very good. The burrito was good and the fajitas were were better. The Hawaiian fajitas were actually very good and good change of pace. Other wise this was an average choice for dinner. The decor was average. The staff met... More

I have eaten here probably 6 times. One time it was out of this world another time it was horrible cold food bad service. To be honest I give folks a chance if they have a bad night or if it's just bad food I give them the opportunity to make things right. Tonight we stopped into the Plaza de... More

Typical Mexican restaurant with typical prices, which means you won't break the bank. Extensive menu. It is exactly what you would expect......which can be perfect.

On a recent visit to Plaza Mexico, I found a huge hair in my salsa. The staff seemed to care less about the incident. I left. On other trips the food is decent, but nothing to write home about.

We stopped for lunch while wandering around the waterfront. The service was good. All 4 of us enjoyed our orders. I would have no problem stopping again.

To compensate for the blandness of their food, they serve a half plate of rice which is equally tasteless. Wine selection is very poor. Much better restaurants in the area.

My husband and I had dinner here yesterday for the first time. I really wanted seafood and was pleased to find a new dish (Plaza del Mar) with grilled shrimp, scallops, fish and mango slaw and rice - it was delicious. My husband ordered the taco salad and liked it as well. The staff was attentive. They have a bar... More

Stopped in for lunch while walking the Beaufort waterfront. Atmosphere is great. Food was great except the chicken was a little dry. Over all a great place to get Mexican in Beaufort.

I had the Carne Asada lunch special. Steak was very tender and seasoned well. Rice and beans were good and the guacamole was fresh and delicious. Fresh made chips and salsa brought several times to our table. Husband and friends had the fajitas and were very pleased with their food as well.
