Every time I go to Albuquerque, I always come to La Placita. The menu is simple, but the food is great and I just love the historic building with trees growing through the roof! I’ve been coming since 1987. And loved it again this time!

Stopped in for lunch while checking out Old Town. Hostess was great. Gave us a tour of the building and the history. Awesome. Food of course was delicious.

Great location in the SW side of Old Town with traditional Mexican options. I had the pork tamales which were good and flavorful as is their green and red sauce.

Service and ambiance were great, as was the Enchilada Ranchero plate. But the lack of any draft beers was disappointing, we were harassed by flies while eating, and the fajitas consisted of a lot of bell peppers, and a small amount of tough meet.

While visiting Old Town we decided to try La Placita. Interesting building with a variety of dining rooms. We had a nice view of the park across the street. Food was good and the people were friendly.

What a terrible experience. The food was awful. Service was good, and their sopapillas were good, but the relleno was the worst I’ve ever had. Overbreaded and tasted burnt. The cheese enchilada was wrapped in a tortilla tough as leather. Can’t imagine why anyone would...More

Yes, I believe the restaurant has a full liquor license . I also think that you can get separate checks at La Placita just let your server know when you are ordering.
