La Plancha serves South American food - lots of plantains, chiles, ceviche, beans, fajitas. The dinners are reliably tasty. I always have the stuffed Poblano chile - beef, veggie, chicken or my fave, shrimp.

We live in Eldorado and eat at La Plancha from time to time. The food is consistently good. Their Sunday brunch is wonderful. Wait staff is efficient and friendly. Prices are reasonable.
