After a morning of hiking in fields around Buckeye our group of 8 stopped at La Placita for lunch. Authentic and friendly atmosphere and server made everyone's requests seem easy, did all the drinks from memory and was helpful with menu substitutions. Food was fulfilling and great tasting.

If you want to experience life in historic downtown Buckeye, this is the place to be. Generations of Buckeyeites eat here daily/weekly/monthly to just eat lunch or celebrate major events. The GCC (green chile cheese crisp) is a must to order. I love their tacos as well.

We are Canadians who have the good fortune to winter in Buckeye. We always enjoy the Mexican food and the very relaxed atmosphere at La Placita . In fact when our family comes down for a visit La Placita is where they want to go for a good feed of Mexican food.
