A party of 6 had an awesome experience. The food was as good as advertised ! Everyone ate something different and we all shared. I can honestly say there wasn't a bad dish. Eat whatever you want, because you won't go wrong ! Would come back here again!

We ate here in July 2015 and had a fantastic meal, We were back in December with 7 others and stopped here for dinner one night. We started with the Chicken Fried Bacon and Chili Fries. Fantastic. I ordered the chili burger and couldn't eat the whole thing it was big. Several ordered the chicken fried steak and raved about... More

The shrimp dish was WONDERFUL!! The owner came out to visit and the whole evening was great fun. It's a little off the beaten path but well worth the visit.

We were in Cabo the first two weeks of December and ate at La Palapa four times. The food was good starting with the homemade pico de gallo and chips to the bacon wrapped shrimp! Really good drinks and we loved Roberto who made sure we were happy all the time. The prices were very reasonable. It is somewhere we'll... More

Went there for dinner on the second day of our two week visit to Cabo. One of our friends from the hotel we stay in works here so we went in to see him and have dinner. This place is not real fancy but nice. They have a tex mex menu. The chicken fried bacon was great and they have... More

The food is a good value for the cost. The staff is very good about checking to make sure you have everything you need. My husband and I ate there last week. I had coconut shrimp, my husband had cheese stuffed bacon wrapped shrimp, both VERY good. It was served with rice and sautéed veggies that were wonderful. We will... More

My husband and I had our last dinner in Cabo on Sunday night at La Palapa. Drinks were delicious and so were the chips and salsa. We shared the homemade fries with chili and cheese as well as the fried chicken breast with mashed potatoes. Both plates were very good! Chris and Roberto are always very friendly and welcoming.

Very average and not particularly stand out. Service is slow, the waiters are also the busy boys and the bartenders. Food is more US American with hot sauce, lol. New owners are from Texas, so typical Tex-Mex food you'd find ANYWHERE in the SouthWest USA. Have eaten there several times for lunch and dinner. It never got better, so by... More

Since they must have just opened for dinner, or else nobody was ready to eat yet, we were the only two folks in the place. The margarita was ok, the chili releno was good, as was the beef. Quite filling and reasonably priced. Love the neighborhood dog who came to visit and snack with us!
