Carne asada burrito was great. So was the salsa that came with the chips. Small place and someone's grandma is legitimately cooking in the back. Avoid the chain restaurants if you're passing thru. Give Lola's a try.

My first trip to Platas and the food was good but seemed a bit greasy. Great flavor and the staff was nice. Not much for atmosphere and cleanliness was a little iffy but, not bad food.

Plata's has been making good Mexican food since the 70's. My favorites are the bean and cheese burritos. The burritos are big and full of meat. Tacos are awesome and are the big ones. Actually, everything on the menu is tasty.

These chain of restaurants are family owned by different members of the family. Each one is unique but they all seem to have a very authentic home cooked, layed back feeling? Nothing very fancy but it does taste good. Fills the belly.
