Rodents, insects, and flies, Oh, My! Local Denver media has this restaurant noted as one of the highest health department violators that do not correct the problems. Food temperature violations can be deadly not to mention the critters. Let's hope that it is closed forever!

This restaurant has been in Brighton for a very long time; however, I do not know why when there are so many better restaurants in this area.

It's amazing to me how people have so many different tastes. I have been eating there for at least 25 or 30 years and i think it is the best Mexican restruant in Brighton. My favorite is #11 as I love the chili rellenos with...More

Some of the food is not the best, but we have been eating at LaPLacita since 1982 and always go back. The guacamole and the menudo are excellent. Much better than Santiago's across the street. Green chile a little bland, but we are fine with...More
