If you're expecting mexican, don't...it's a latin grill. They have no queso and they charge for chips and salsa. I'll give you that we didn't have much...but what we did have was really bad flavor. We had the chips and dos salsas. It was a...More

We have been here 5 times and find it average at best. Service is always slow and food is Salvadorian. Hardly anyone goes there and I wonder how they stay in business

In a locally-owned and operated shopping mall this restaurant is more South American than it is 'Mexican'. Good fresh food - get anything with loroco in it - buffalo burgers, order anything with shrimp or fish as well. New Mexican beers and South American wines...More

La Plancha is wonderful surprise in the sometimes monotonous world of southwest food offerings. The menu is extensive and every dish that I tried, I liked. The chef does a great job of elevating traditional dishes with seasonings and techniques that are pleasing to the...More

Visiting El Dorado area and found this little gem. Sunday brunch was plentiful, wide selection of brunch items. Nice layout and eggs made to order. Friendly people and very reasonably priced. Great atmosphere. Well worth the short drive.

We enjoyed 3 good meals at La Plancha before a very disappointing meal was served. The pico de gallo had soured and ruined the entrée and the dining experience. Yes the restaurant was willing to bring out a new entrée but my spouse had her...More
