Went there on the recommendation of a family member who likes the location and convenience of dining in her neighborhood. I wasn't impressed by the food, especially the chile rellenos that I ordered. But there were a lot of folks there so maybe it works for them.

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 that. If it is too hot you cannot enjoy it. We enjoy the steak with green chili, refried beans, rice, and tortillas at a very reasonable price. I will agree they need to do something about the sinks in the restrooms. The p-trap needs to be removed and cleaned out so sinks will drain. They fill up when you wash your hands and take forever to drain. Prices are the most reasonable I have seen in years at a Mexican Restaurant. They definitely need to stop charging for chips and salsa. This is a part of any Mexican dining.

La Placita has the best enchiladas, hands down! Their salsa is also very good...flavorful, a little heat, but not too hot! I love their enchilada plate. Their re-fried beans are very tasty...probably not healthy, but I must admit, tasty!

I've been going to La Placita since I was little and have go (sometimes more than once) have it whenever we are back visiting. Everything is great! I've never had a bad meal. A real authentic restaurant and very reasonably priced for what you get.

I took my mother to this place because I had a a voucher from Restaurant.com. We sat down before two other tables, but were approached by the waitress last. Ok, no big deal right? As it says on my voucher which i had printed off an hour prior, I handed the voucher to the waitress before we ordered any food. She told me that they no longer accepted these. I told her that can't be because i just printed it off. She told me that she would ask the manager. She came back 5 minutes later saying that the manager would be out to speak with us shortly. She asked if she could take our order, and I stated that we should wait to talk to the manager. 10 minutes later the manager came out and said that they don't except these vouchers and i need to check with restaurant.com. I looked it up on my phone and the manager said that the website was wrong. I told her that whenever a restaurant quits accepting vouchers Restaurant.com posts that and gives a credit. She said that we were out of luck. When my mother and I got up to leave I mentioned that maybe I will just have to leave a review online, to which she responded "do whatever makes you happy", and "this place has been here for over 30yrs" to which I responded "that's surprising seeing that it's less than 10% full". So now by leaving this review I've done what made me happy. We drove across the street and ate at Santiagos. Great service and good food, for cheap too. Drive past this dump and go to Santiagos.
