Their selection is awesome and their menu for food and drinks covers Americanized Mexican thoroughly. Nachos are strong and some of the basics are really good. Stay away from seafood as they use lower quality lower cost products. The atmosphere is really good and I look forward to Cinco de Mayo there tonight. Margeritas are better at other places including Alebrije but Alebrije does not have beef flautas and that is not good in my book. They make the margeritas too stiff for this mostly beer or vodka drinker. Prices are very fair and better than Alebrije overall. I wish that all these places focused on fresher, higher quality ingredients that did not drown so many of their dishes in cheese and used the spices more authentically. I would pay more for more authenticity and less catering to our American palletes. It is very spacious and very clean. Alebrije is too cramped and is always packed despite the food being no better than here for more money.
I like to consider myself a connoisseur of Mexican food, and Plaza Azteca was not disappointing. Although it was not the best Mexican restaurant at which I have ever eaten, I had no complaints whatsoever about Plaza Azteca. My husband took me there for my birthday, and our waitress Jessica was pleasant, knowledgeable about the menu, accommodating and helpful. I had a few special substitutions I asked for on my order, and everything came exactly as I ordered it. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was quaint and in traditional Mexican style. Our meal was surprisingly affordable, including a margarita and dessert! In general it was a very good experience and I would absolutely recommend Plaza Azteca to others. FYI there is a Mariachi band performing live every other Wednesday night, and it is nice for you to tip the band when they come to your table and play just for you, so have some cash on hand if you go.
The food and service were both outstanding. Very fast, food was great and hot and came out quickly. The make a killer strawberry fruit smoothie also. The waiter was a little hard to understand sometimes because of his heavy accent and he spoke so quickly but otherwise the visit was great and we are telling everyone and we will be back again soon. top notch! the Lamms
