I have been to the Gran Plaza Mexican Grill three times. The first time was shortly after it opened and it was not very good. The food was good enough, but the service was terrible and the waitress we had was more interested in flirting with another waiter. That was the first time. The next two times (I had to... More

a group of 6 ladies ate lunch here and all were more than satisfied with their drinks and food orders. After hiking in a state park the lemonade was a great thirst quencher, real lemonade not a watered down fountain drink! Then on to the margaritas which were great. Each of us ordered a different lunch item, which were very... More

The portion sizes are a small average. The quality is average. Decent meal for a fairly decent price. Wish the portions were a bit bigger. Would also like a little more robust flavor.

This restaurant has exceptional service. If you are there for lunch hour from work or school, they understand the orders need to be prompt. Or if you want to take time, they give you that too. The food is out of this world with taste, portions, presentation. My favorites: molcahate, fajitas, pollo loco. Everything is good..hard to make a choice.

There are many options for burritos. I had steak and shrimp. The burrito took up the whole length of a large plate. I could only eat half then had the rest for lunch the next day. The have an extensive menu and the service staff we're excellent.

My wife and I have made the Gran Plaza a lunch or dinner stop on our trips between the Twin Cities and Iowa over the past few years. The staff is always friendly, the food is great, and service is prompt. We particularly love the fajitas, but everything we've had at Gran Plaza has been great.

Recently, my family visited us in Minnesota and flew into the Minneapolis airport. Since I live in Rochester, we selected this convenient location to have dinner. We enjoyed our evening with excellent food and friendly service. The burritos, enchiladas, and fajitas were very tasty especially topped with the awesome varieties of salsas. We had a great evening and will definitely... More
