The food was very good from the burritos to the chimichangas. Big portions and no unfilled tummies in the group. We ate here on two occasions. The waiter was very helpful explaining menu and had a good sense of humor too. There is a front door and a back door entrance and the rooms within are different in flavor. The... More

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.
