We had a wonderful Mexican food within 3 minute walking distance of the Depot Inn at D'Abolengo Mexican Cuisine. We ate on their covered patio and were not rushed during our meal. There were six different dishes between us and each one was excellent! https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g44561-d4443982-r805627864-La_Pachanga-La_Plata_Missouri.html#

Fast, friendly and very good food. This restaurant is right next to the Depot Inn and was recommended to us by the hotel. All I can say is 'what a great spot'. Excellent menu and very reasonable prices. Our meals were great.

I was seated very fast. The staff was friendly. They are generous with their servings . Though what I got was very salty.

Ate here twice while staying at nearby motel. Both of us enjoyed our meals which were both appetizing. Food arrived quickly and chips and salsa were brought to tables as soon as we were seated. Good job.

We were not really in the mood for Mexican when we got to town but this was next door to the Depot Inn & Suites, where we were staying for the night. The menu was surprising, as it had so many items to choose from...and I ended up being able to have steak. The service was perfect. The servings were large and the Frozen Margaritta was YUMMY. Will return when in the area.More

Had dinner here with 3 other couples. Thought service was a little slow but we weren’t going anywhere as we spent the night next door at the Depot Inn. We all had something different and all items were delicious. Portions ample.

The staff were attentive and friendly, the environment was comfortable, the food was a little cardboardy. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. Looked nice. I’ve only been there the once and only had the Fiesta Enchiladas so weigh that as well.

It was so good this was the only place we ate at. Staff were fantastic, food was phenomenal, and probably the coldest beer I've ever had. Will be back without so much as a doubt.

La Pachanga sits in La Plata, Mo. a short walk from DePot Inn and Suites. My friend and I enjoyed lunch there before our trip and dinner on our return trip off Amtrak. The restaurant was clean, good service and food was delicious.
