If you're expecting mexican, don't...it's a latin grill. They have no queso and they charge for chips and salsa. I'll give you that we didn't have much...but what we did have was really bad flavor. We had the chips and dos salsas. It was a green avocado/sour cream type salsa and then a traditional red salsa. We tried to give... More

Not fancy. More a family friendly night out. Beer, local craft and Really good Mexican food all resonably priced, wow! Our table tried it all from nachos, chicken dishes, enchaladas and burgers. All good. If you venture out to the eldorado area, definitely give it a try.

We have been here 5 times and find it average at best. Service is always slow and food is Salvadorian. Hardly anyone goes there and I wonder how they stay in business

In a locally-owned and operated shopping mall this restaurant is more South American than it is 'Mexican'. Good fresh food - get anything with loroco in it - buffalo burgers, order anything with shrimp or fish as well. New Mexican beers and South American wines are available. Parking is plentiful.

It was a Monday and we just arrived at our campground. We wanted authentic southwestern fare. Where to go with so many restaurants to choose from? So we decided to give this restaurant a try based upon Trip Advisor ratings. We were not disappointed. We were seated and our server came right over to take our drink orders. After careful... More

We stopped here for lunch as there was almost no other option to eat. We told the waitress that we had an issue with onions and that is causes stomach distress. (FODMAP offender for those who understand) and they made fresh pico de gallo avacado slices for the guac minus the onions. It was awesome and very appreciated!!

La Plancha is wonderful surprise in the sometimes monotonous world of southwest food offerings. The menu is extensive and every dish that I tried, I liked. The chef does a great job of elevating traditional dishes with seasonings and techniques that are pleasing to the eye and refreshing to eat. The staff is friendly and efficient and the large dining... More

Visiting El Dorado area and found this little gem. Sunday brunch was plentiful, wide selection of brunch items. Nice layout and eggs made to order. Friendly people and very reasonably priced. Great atmosphere. Well worth the short drive.

We enjoyed 3 good meals at La Plancha before a very disappointing meal was served. The pico de gallo had soured and ruined the entrée and the dining experience. Yes the restaurant was willing to bring out a new entrée but my spouse had her entrée already and the delay for an unsoured dish was disappointing,
