The food here is pretty good. I like the Taco's al carbon. The atmosphere reminds me of a diner. Not my favorite Mexican food, but it will do in a pinch.

We went to Plato Loco tonight for dinner. We ordered the $2 beer. They brought me a second beer which I didn't order. I didn't say anything at the time. When we got our bill they had charged me $3 for the beer. I asked them why. It wasn't Happy Hour anymore was the answer. They refused to take the... More

I order tortillas and I could immediately tell that they were not authentic and store bought. I asked the waitress if they made their own and she said no. They were nasty and cold. I order my son chicken nuggets and fries. The fries also tasted like store bought fries. I had the eggs and papas which were okay. I... More

Have been visiting this location for years...Plato Loco are the first few Spanish words our kids ever learned...(and since they thought that was neat, they asked to go there often...LOL). Great chips and salsa, burritos and don't forget the fajitas...

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Cedar Hill. The sour cream chicken enchiladas are my favorite. They have good salsa and chips too. The service is friendly and this is a family-owned business, which is a nice change from all the chains in Cedar Hill. I definitely recommend Plato Loco for a meal. It's a good value for the...

Great food and the best Tortilla Soup this side of Vera Cruz. Generous happy hour and daily meal specials along with very affordable prices, along with the friendliest wait staff in town keep Plato Loco at the top of my dinning list.

They have the best Mexican food in Cedar Hill. I would know Iv'e tried all the Mexican restaurant in Cedar Hill and this one is the best!! The price is great, I always order to go because the inside is small. But I don't care the fooooood is awesome.

The menu has a large selection, with my favorite being the "two for twenty" which includes your beverage. the chips and salsa are really good -- if you ask for the hot salsa it has an almost Indian "slow burn" flavor -- not hot at first bite, but it is hot about 30 second later.

We were camping at nearby Cedar Hill State Park and had a craving for Mexican. I was impressed with the wide array of offerings on the menu, and then our very knowledgable waiter stopped by to take a drink order. Our margarita discussion set the tone for the entire evening. You see, mixes wreck my stomach. Don't ask me why:... More
