La Placita

La Placita Review

The menu is simple but tasty at this brightly decorated downtown fixture, where plastic tables and chairs are scattered around an outdoor grill. For those who want a more formal setting, the same menu is served indoors with colorful linens and Mexican music to match. The mixed grill of sausage, steak, and pork chops is a standout, as are the glorious barbecued ribs and the tequila shrimp. A local favorite since 1987 is the arrachera (flank steak) served with a basket of warm tortillas. A selection of tasty pastas and salads is also available. A cold beer makes a perfect accompaniment, and the banana flambé is the ideal way to complete a meal.
