While doing some christmas shopping, decided to stop into La Placita, a restaurant that used to be good. Chips and Salsa for 1.99 were old stale cold chips, and not that many but that was okay considering. Then the food literally was delivered in less than 5 minutes. Well the beef and chicken taco I recieved were cold, including the shells. The beef taco had multiple raw pink bits throughout, and the chicken was ice cold from the refrigerator and had dry crusties on many pieces. My son's chicken taco was the same. The rice was the grossest I have ever had. It was red mush, but still hard bits of instant rice. I wouldn't even think that was possible. The beans were okay, but cold too. My husband got 3 enchiladas and the cheese wasn't even melted, and chicken was cold and gross too. The waitress when she delivered the plates said we could have gotten burned on them, Yeah right!!! The staff there seemed ambivalent and seemed like they knew the food was bad. But the waitress asked if we wanted to go boxes after sitting there for 20 minutes with full plates of food. I guess I could never go back knowing how there food is prepared now. I'm sure they just forgot to nuke all of it. For $30 for two adults and a child getting no dessert and just chips and salsa as an appetizer, I feel taken advantage of completely. I ate there two years ago and found the food to be totally different. They shredded the chicken and put something on it like green chile, and of course all of the food was hot. I should have known though, after we left I thought about how close we were seated to the service area and there was no smells of any kind coming out of there. Definitely just a microwave joint and for the prices it's embarassing.
Pros: It still has the tree, neat artwork, and brick floors, so ambience.
Cons: They don't cook the food, just microwave, and they forget to do that too!
