Super friendly staff, nice clean restaurant, excellent food. Big surprise to say the least. Steak was delicious cooked perfect, spaghetti and meatball was amazing for a restaurant in a small town. Food and atmosphere was exceptional, now I will get critical. A place that serves food that is this good can really drop some of the pretense. I can see... More

Don't miss this hidden gem. It is fabulous! Try the evening specials for a real treat. This building is old Victorian that has been restored.

We stumbled on this great little place on our way from Phoenix to Denver. We stopped at the Walsenburg exit to find gas and dinner and were directed to La Plaza by a friendly guy at the gas pump who said La Plaza has "4 star food for a 2 star price." Although we arrived at 7:40 pm and the... More

My wife has recently acquired two Border Collie puppies to add to our saved animals and we decided to celebrate with lunch at La Plaza. We were greeted by the owner, Karen, still working hard while recovering from a recent ankle injury and some of her excellent staff like Debbie, Zach and our luncheon server, Mario. The 2014 Kline Pinot... More

I loved this quaint and comfy little place!! The service was friendly and the food came out quick and tasty. Prices are typical for the meal and portions, and the wi-fi is icing on the cake. Didn't get to try dessert, although they sounded awesome. Will be back when coming through the area.

This dumpy but kind of cute little town has one nice hotel and one great restaurant. I don't know how they do it with a tiny staff and a small customer base, but they produce excellent food for a reasonable price. We recommend the hotel and especially the restaurant.

My wife and I visit La Plaza perhaps 2-3 times per month as we live approximately 35 miles to the north. We usually come for lunch, or like today for a holiday meal, in this case, Easter. As always, the access off interstate 25 is only about five minutes from Exit 52 and parking has never been a problem. Karen... More

never sleep due to horrible windows and train in back yard. I think this says it all. windows have open cracks and the trains (4 or 5 every night) will blow their horns at least 6 or 7 times each time they pass.

been there many times. service and food quality is absolutely 'inconsistent'. had reservations this new years eve and was escorted to the 'non-reserved' area. prime rib was tough and over-cooked. staff forgot to serve the shrimp appetizer (frozen shrimp) and the waitress showed up after our meal with them. the owner definitely treats some customers better than others, based upon...

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.
