“Best Mexican food in GV”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This is our "go to" place in Green Valley for Mexican Food. They have a good variety on the menu and the portions are sized just right for us. We take out-of-town visitors here. The ambiance is just what you would expect and the service is always good, even when they are busy.

“Friedly Place with good Mexican food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Stopped for lunch about 2:00 pm past the lunch rush. Place was clean and very nice Mexi/Shanish decor. Service was fast and very friedly. Many of the customers seemed to be locals who ate there regularly. The food was very good and was pretty fast getting to the table.

“A Green Valley Institution”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

La Placita has been in GV for 18 years. It is a friendly comfortable place with plenty of seating. The food is excellent and the service fast. The salsa alone is worth a visit. The menu is large as are the portions. Dishes are not overly spicey, in keeping with GV tastes. Very very popular with locals as well as snow-birds. During the winter the crowds are significant for all meals. A very good Mexican restaurant.
