Excellent service. Live music on weekends. Family friendly menu and staff. Great cheese dip, and fajitas. Also a great value for the amount of great food you get. Modelo on draft and huge beer mugs. Only complaint are the margaritas, mix is pretty awful. But plenty else to sample here. Owner is incredibly friendly and attentive.

La Placita has the friendliest staff, the food is always delicious and the wait time is minimal. Great for kids and large groups. This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Madison!

We entered the restaurant for lunch and was seated immediately. We were asked 3 times within 3 minutes if we were ready to order...we did not even have time to look at the menu. This was our first time at this restaurant. I specifically ordered a No. 3 Combo and pointed at the menu when I ordered the Chili Relleno... More

The mexican tacos are cheap and delicious. I have tried the barbacoa, al pastor, and pollo. They were all served with cilantro and onions, but request the salsa verde if they don't bring it out! I have only ordered take out and both times it was prepared ridiculously fast. I called in the order while I was driving there and... More

La Placita has been my favorite Mexican place in town for 15 years. Antonio is awesome and the chips/salsa/food are great. I used to pick up chips and salsa to take home with me every couple of weeks. If you like a small, family owned business, go see them! They always make you feel right at home!

Antonio and his staff are great - service is quick and food was great - selection was different then the chain restaurants - everybody was able to enjoy a different dish - reasonably priced - we'll be back again....

Went in for a late lunch early dinner, "lunner". Had combo plate 15, chile relleno, enchilada and burrito. Seated quickly, chips and salsa fresh and delicious. Negra Modelo for my beverage. The meal came very quickly and looked good. It was okay but not as good as otjer reviews have said. I would relate it to a low budget, no... More

Very friendly staff- from the moment we entered the restaurant. Food was excellent and the prices were good. We loved the chimichanga and fajita burrito. The green salsa was good too. Will definitely be back!
