This is an update to my original post. I will not eat here again until they clean the restaurant. This is as of 8/18/13.I was seated and brought my water. The glass was chipped and dirty. I looked around and saw cobwebs and dust in several areas of the dining room. There was dust collected on and around the air vents above the dining room. When the waitress came to take my order I told her I did not feel safe eating here. If the public areas are that bad what does the kitchen look like? Do yourself a favor and avoid this place. Maybe they will get a clue.
My husband and I have eaten here several times. The last two clinched it for us. About a month ago, I went in and I ordered veggie fajitas off the vegetarian menu. I was served frozen vegetables (more Asian-style than Mexican), I could have made better fajitas at home.
Well, we made the mistake of returning tonight. Neither one of us was particularly happy with our food... they never brought the check. We eventually had to get up and just go to the cashier.
When we got home, my husband found a long, thick, dark hair in the enchilada he had purchased. Gross.
The people (waitstaff) are nice enough, but the food is bad and the service isn't great.
WENT DOWN TO GREAT WOLF LODGE WITH FAMILY, STOPPED IN TO HAVE LUNCH AND MY DAUGHTER LEFT HER CELL PHONE IN RESTURANT. WE LIVE 3.5 TO 4 HOURS NORTH. CALLED AND TALKED TO SEVERAL PEOPLE AND THEN THE OWNER. WAS TOLD IT WAS NOT MY PROPLEM AND THEY WOULD NOT MAIL THE PHONE. WILL NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN AND THEIR FOOD SUCKED ANYHOW. BUT VERY RUDE AND NO CUSTOMER SERVICE IN REGARDS THE PHONE. I WAS SHOCKED AND BLOWN AWAY TO SAY THE LEAST. WOW
We have been here several times and the service was always excelant. We have ordered several different items from the menu and have been really pleased with what we got. We have been to some superior mexican places in our time and this one is not quite there. But Plaza Jalisco's food is realy good and gives us our mexican food fix like nowhere else in the Olyimpia area.
I came in late, and the service was poor. The busboy was too busy to bring me a refill on my chips and salsa. I guess he was too busy taking the garbage out first as he walked by with a huge bag!! yuck!!
The food was so-so. The presentation was bad. It looked like they just threw everything on the plate. Maybe the service is better during the day. Definetly the service at night is bad. Not a happy costumer
....Their seafood chimichunga is the BOMB baby! It's large enough for two, but get your own, you'll have leftovers for a mid-night snack! This big boy is STUFFED with scallops, shrimp and fish! (My mouth is watering as I type) If you enjoy seafood, this is the one for you! A cream based sauce, spiked with tiny diced carrots tops it all off. Served with rice & beans of course. I would NEVER order anything BUT this! The Plaza in Chehalis made the best one. Hopefully they will rebuild after the flood. Until then, I'm forced to eat the Tumwater. You won't be sorry....go tonight! DON'T order anything else tho! :)
This is my absolute favorite Tumwater restraunt. The service is great, and the food is excellent. My favorite meal there is the Jalisco Special-Grilled Carne Asada Skirt Steak, Prawns, Scallops and Mushrooms lightly sprinkled with Red Pepper in a butter sauce and Rice and Beans topped with Guacamole and Pico Digallo. Oh yeah, and fresh warm tortillas on the side.
The chips are always fresh and the salsa is always delicious. Give it a try sometime :)
