I have had both good and bad results from using plugs. I use the gooey rope style that you can buy almost anywhere, I also use it with the sealant also sold along side the plug kits. If the hole has a relatively small diameter and you get the plug in deep enough and use the cement you should be fine. I had a rear tire with 2 plugs and never had any issues. I did plug a tire where the hole was made from a larger diameter screw, it worked for about a mouth and then started to leak, so I just replaced the tire.
It is not ideal to ride on a plugged tire, and I would not do very aggressive riding, if you do, plugged it keep checking the air pressure and if it starts loosing pressure, then replace it.
