  • jcchamberlain reviewThis has been one of my favorite restaurants for the past 16 years. When I lived on the hill, I dined there at least once a week. Now that I'm in Colorado, my trips to DC always include a visit to Las Placitas. The food is outstanding, the price is a great value, the owners Isadoro and Ramon are the BEST! And the margaritas and salsa are to die for. If you are looking for a comfortable, quiet and off the beaten path kind of place to eat, you will not be dissappointed!

  • gizmobear4 reviewI highly recommend this restaurant. We had been waiting for a table at the more pretentious Belga Cafe across the street and the hostess kept ignoring us and seating others who arrived after us. We were fed up and decided to try Las Placitas. I'm glad we did!! The food and service are excellent. It's not a swanky place but feels cozy and comfortable. We did not have to wait at all and we were served right away. The service staff were very nice. The pupusas were excellent. Great value for the money.

  • Andrew K. S.If you have never had a pupusa, try one (and add the cabbage, called Cutado). Pupusas are the new burrito
