We visited this restaurant with a specific agenda. We are buying a house nearby and wanted to check out the nearest eatery. We were very pleased with our first visit. A nice selection of cold, mostly south of the border and local brews. I tried the Plato topical which was a good education in central cuisine. My companion said his... More

I have never had great food there and I have never had terrible food there. To be honest I have only had two meals there and my neighbors rave about this place so maybe I caught this place on slightly off days.The menu is not varied but the food is fresh and wholesome.

I've been going there since I moved from Colorado! The food is excellent, I go to have breakfast there almost every Sunday! The service is so good! I highly recommend the brunch buffet.

We brought a few clients from our galleries to dinner the other night! We were running a bit late, called to see if they would still accomodate us and they graciously invited us to come on over. The staff is so nice, the chef always come out to make sure all is well. We stayed beyond business hours enjoying the... More

Went there on a Saturday around 12:30 for brunch. Probably a bad sign that were only about 4 people eating at that time. We walked in and asked a girl who was standing around if we were to select our own table or be seated. She apparently was a customer also and said "I have no idea". At that point,... More

We tried La Plancha based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. OMG. The food was delicious!!!!!!!! We had a special appetizer which was fondue! It was so delightful we could not get over it. We split a Caesar salad and Latin paella. The salad was great - not too much dressing which is my pet peeve. Nice and light! I know... More

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
