Servers muddle fresh avocado with cilantro and onion beside tables at Plaza Azteca. The theme of the restaurant is freshness—chefs prepare salsa throughout the day and sleep in tupperware containers overnight. The founders of Plaza Azteca opened their first restaurant in 1994 to bring traditional Mexican dishes from Jalisco, their native Mexican state, to Virginia Beach. Today, they have restaurants in six US states. To create fajitas, the cooks fill skillets with grilled vegetables, chorizo, steak, and zesty chimichurri sauce. For the molcajete Azteca, they stuff hot stone bowls with rib-eye steak, chicken, shrimp, poblano peppers, and pineapple, topping it with honey pasilla sauce.
