“Fresh and delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Visited based on a recommendation from our B&B host and were not disappointed. Great little restaurant in the middle of Vernal. I ordered the Pollo con chipotle and my husband ordered the tacos. Both were delicious!

The restaurant is a little small and was loud due to a table of unruly children in the back. Not the owners fault that the kids were loud and obnoxious.

If you're in Vernal, stop in for a delicious, authentic Mexican meal.

Thank wmtip

“TERRIBLE customer service!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Friends and I visited this restaurant for dinner recently and were so disappointed that we spent money here! When we entered we were told there would be a 10 minute wait despite several booths being open, 10 minutes later we were told they were not allowed to seat anyone to give the kitchen a chance to catch up and we had to convince them to let us be seated and allowed to order drinks. Honestly, we should have taken that as a sign and just left at that point.

Finally we were allowed to order after our server told us she would be over to take our order in a second and then passed our booth several times without apology. My friends ordered an appetizer but it came out with our meals, again without apology. When we complained about portions of the meal our server laughed and said "okay." Our server also had no idea how much extras like cheese and lettuce would cost. She was slow to bring needed items and refills.

I will say the one positive about this experience is that the restaurant itself, though small, is wonderfully decorated in authentic Mexican style, very colorful.

Then the restaurant started cleaning up to close for the night while there were still customers, the stink of pine sol filled the restaurant and completely put me off of my meal. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE!!!!

“Great Mexican food in Vernal!?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Visited Plaza Mexicana on the advice of our rafting guide (Thanks, Josh!) and we were pleasantly surprised. Great atmosphere with friendly staff that served great food! Everything was fresh and authentic. Very good margaritas. Easily the best restaurant we visited in Vernal.
