“Great Tex-Mex at a Reasonable Price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2011

I was in Dallas visiting my sons and we at lunch at Plato Loco in Cedar Hill. The quality of the food was outstanding. it was fresh and hot. I was impressed and my sons were impressed. We all had something different and we all felt the food was excellent. The chips before the meal were thick and the salsa was spicy and good. And, the service was top notch. Didn't have to ask for refills on our drinks or anything. The only problem is that the portions were huge! If you're in the area and you feel like Tex-Mex, you won't go wrong by stopping in here.

“service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2011

I went to Plato Loco and the food was great. We had a Parillada which 3 of us ate from it. It was awesome. It has Beef, Chicken, Shrimp fajitas and Sausage. It was excellent tasting. You should go there. I also visited their Waxahachie location, just as great and full service bar. Very reasonably priced

“Friendly neighborhood restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2009

We've been dining at Plato Loco for years now. It's a family favorite that's sure to please. Visit a few times and you'll start realizing most of the customers are regulars and the owners are always nearby.

The food is very reasonably priced and is your typical cafe style TexMex. Nothing fancy and nothing fancy needed. This is where you go when you want a plate of sour cream enchiladas or fajitas done right. They start you out with chips and individual bowls for salsa (the salsa is in a pitcher that is left on your table).

The service is always quick and courteous.

If this is your first or hundredth visit to a simple TexMex restaurant we feel sure you will not be disappointed.

“just *O.K.*”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2009

We ate there a couple of weeks ago. (It's probably only my 4th visit in 8 years.) The food is o.k.; very friendly staff, convenient location but there is better tex-mex available.
