Went to dinner at the Plank. Food was good and meat portions were large. The sides would be better if served in smaller sizes. Were big enough for 3 plus people.

Lucio D
Hello, I was just there on Saturday and left an excellent review. There is a set Brunch price but I asked if I could order off the menu and was told yes. Prices were very reasonable and we liked it so much that we went again on sunday. We didn't ask again what the prices were today. To our surprise the prices went up. When confronted about it we were told that pricing went up today. I paid my bill and also left a tip. Even though it wasn't a huge increase we just felt like we were taken. Did not like the feeling and we will never be back again and when I am able we will also leave an unfavorable review. I am really sorry that you do business this way.

Hi, I will be visiting this restaurant in Feb and I see the prices must be in peso form on the menu? Is this place expensive in US dollars? Thanks!
