The family and I have been here multiple times. Sometimes the service is good, sometimes it leaves room for improvement. The food has always been decent. The music is too loud for my taste. Especially when you are hoping for a peaceful dinner. It was hard to have a conversation last time we ate there. This wasn't in a Friday... More

Pros: Staff was friendly They did nothing wrong. Cons: Terrible. I was really hoping to find a quality Mexican food place. The food was very bland! There was no fresh avocado. I had been to a previous location and It was great but not this location. You will be disappointed. There are much better places locally to go. I will... More

The chicken soup is wonderful- big, fresh chunks of avocado and chicken. The Seared Tuna nacho- Fabulous! Great place for single diner or family. Food always fresh and staff are always pleasant and helpful.

This was our first time dining at this restaurant. Truly authentic atmosphere, we felt like we were back in Costa Maya! Food was good, I liked the complimentary chips with this white dipping sauce, my wife had beef burrito platter and I, not crazy about spicy food, had hamburger platter. Service was fine, waiter made sure we were happy. Like... More

I requested a substitution on their Durango dish and was given a wonderful veggie taco. The waitress was very accommodating and kept our drinks full. The food was delicious. We did try their Williamsburg location but were very disappointed with the lack of customer service. It is worth a few more minutes of drive time to eat here. The service... More

One of my favorite places to dine for lunch. When I was working at nearby Fort Eustis, we came here regularly. Lots of farewell luncheons were held here too. The food, service, and overall quality was great. Parking here is easy and that is a plus.

Have been to the other Plaza's in town, but this was my first visit to the new location. We had a great lunch and an excellent server. I prefer this location over the others and will return. I had the lunch fajitas which were very good, but no match for the Fantastic Quesa Der Mar that my wife had. You... More
