Had a late lunch here to celebrate a special occasion. Food is very good--and the restaurant was quiet when we were there. Although cuisine is 'Salvadoran,' there are New Mexican 'ish' choices on the menu. I had chicken corn tacos with green rice and black...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

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
