Description: Already listed as hotel (La Plaza Inn) but this is also a restaurant so it should be listed as both a hotel and a restaurant, or have a separate restaurant listing so that people who pass by and want a meal (like we did) also can find it.

“average place to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

The restaurant is in a B&B and the dining area was rather small. The service was very slow. The prices were a little steep for the food we got. The bread was very good. The food was good but high. It cost $43 for 3 of us and we only had water to drink. Spaghetti meal came with salad or soup (chili and 1 package of crackers) and cost $11. The mashed potatoes were good but not enough gravy for the potatoes and chicken fried steak ($14). Would not go back.

“Worth getting off the highway for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

If you are on I-25 and happen to pass through Walsenburg, this is worth stopping for. When we did so, our first impression was " this is a small and distressed town." However, we were looking for lunch. Choices were sparse with local places looking depressed. Thought we would end up at the Subway or Pizza Hut. Then, came upon La Plaza Inn, which is a hotel and restaurant. The special of the day was a chicken salad and tomato basil soup. Went in and found a quaint dining room. The server was an older lady who was very sweet. Had the green chili fries and chicken salad. Friends had pasta, roast beef sandwich, soup, salad and burger. The food was excellent. The chicken salad was a mixed green salad with roast chicken on top. The chicken had a wonderful curry flavoring. The soup was homemade and also good. The green chili fries were crisp on the outside and moist in the center. The green chili gave it a nice bite. The other dishes were also very good. The whole tab for 5 people came to $43.00 (excluding tax). Wow!

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This must be the place to recommend in town as our hotel also recommended it. I split the Herb Chicken w/my mother and enjoyed it very much. The portions were adequate but certainly not overwhelming. As stated in an earlier review, the bread is very good. The salad appeared to have been sitting out for a while as it was a little wilted when it was served. The Ranch dressing however, was wonderful.

While the food was good, the service left a lot to be desired. We were left waiting....a lot.

Our hotel recommended this place - a good find! We ate a delicious meal on the patio. The service was friendly and attentive. A great evening out.

“Perfectly quaint and delicious find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Would never have found without Tripadvisor ratings. What a gem in a small town! I had the special which was a pulled chicken salad with almonds in greens and my husband had the BLT with sweet potato fries. Fresh and served nicely...sweet potato fries were cooked perfectly and crispy. Service was very friendly and excellent and the value was also great. Dave room for the homemade desserts...the La Plaza pie was terrific-like a creme brule in a pie!
