Not a lot of signs, watch for Eldorado. Just west of highway down from road. Good service, breakfast runs till 11:00 or so. Fruit plate is fresh cut pineapple, banana and watermelon, yum. The Chilli Rellino con heauvo is fantastic. Huge poblano pepper stuffed with lots of scrambled eggs, meat, cheese and potatoes. Served with refried black beans. Well worth... More

I know this sounds crazy, but even with all the other great dishes at La Plancha, what I keep coming back for is their TAMALES!! They are soft , tender, and larger than the "pinche" (stingy) little common tamales sold around town, dried out and wrapped in fake corn husks. These are Salvadorian tamales, wrapped in banana leaves! Choose chicken... More

La Plancha is a good Family Restaurant, near Santa Fe, in Eldordo. The best offer is the Sunday Brunch, from 10.00 to 2.00. The cost is only $10.95. For this price you get a sandwich in Santa Fe. The La Plancha Buffett includes the Egg Station, with all kinds of veg and non veg, things you can add to your... More

We decided to eat dinner at La Plancha after attending the El Dorado Farmers Market one evening and were surely glad that we did. We ate outside on the patio so we could enjoy the live music next door, and the service was wonderful and food was even better. We tried the tamale dinner and green chile cheeseburger, and would...

We were looking for something different to celebrate our anniversary in Sante Fe, so started checking out the reviews on TA. La Palancia in La Tiende got good reviews so decided to try it. I have to admit that if I had known it was 10 miles southeast of Sant Fe, we would have passed. It would have been our... More

La Plancha is a nice little neighborhood restaurant. Food is always good -- not great, and they offer a variety of choices. The family that runs La Plancha is warm, friendly, and their attentive service is a slice of something different in this community. My husband always gets the Salvadoran specialties -- enchiladas, pupusas, green rice. I enjoy the broiled... More

You would never expect to find very good Salvadorian food in this rather nondescript location in the La Tienda Center south of Avenida Vista Grande (and across from the Eldorado Supermarket). I have eaten lunch there several times and recently went there for dinner, and the food and service have always been good. The Salvadorian food includes some different flavors... More

Very good attentive service that shows how much this restaurant appreciates their customers! The wonderful Salvadorian food came out hot, fast, and piled high on my plate! I ordered the chicken Salvadorian tamales with green chile and green rice, and was I impressed! So good to have food with an amazing blend of flavors that isn't the same old thing.... More
