This place is amazing. Not sure what I like better - the fantastic guac, or the delicious lime margaritas. Everything is made from scratch and authentic - nothing preserved. Healthy choices and not a lot of grease - you taste the authentic food. You get a lot of food for the money, and remember - everything is made fresh. Some... More

We went for my niece's birthday at her suggestion. We arrived a few minutes early, and it was good we did. There is no on site parking, just whatever you can find on the road nearby... not great. The prices were moderate, and the helpings were large, but the food was average at best. There are other similar restaurants in... More

We decided to try Mexican food here in Windsor. As we usually go to Mexican town restaurant in the United States. The food here was good but the portions were small and the prices were high. Chips and salsa do come to your table but don't believe they are home made an don't compare it to Mexican town. Margaritas by... More

We ordered the chimichanga meal, enchilada meal, and a soft taco and rice, all of which came out to $40. So we figured for this price, it had better be good. Wow, were we disappointed. The rice was bland and tasted like It was cooked with a chicken buillion cube. The beans were bland, slightly hard and not retried beans... More

I have driven by this restaurant many times and never thought to go in. A friend suggested it and I was pleasantly surprised. It is small but they do take reservations. I would suggest this is you are going later In the evening. The veggie burrito was wonderful and there were a few other choices for the vegetarians. The chimi... More

Food is great! Service is great! Prices are great! The owners are great! When I first went to this restaurant a few years back, I could instantly tell it was a gem as you could see that all the patrons were regulars. Clearly the food would be great and it sure was!

We have been semi-regulars at Palenque for the last year - once a month. The food has been consistently very good. The menu offers classic Mexican favourites with an authentic, home-cooked flare. We have ordered the nightly specials frequently. The fresh ingredients, preparation care and presentation shine.

I went here for a later supper with a friend, it was an odd atmosphere. While everyone seemed to be having a good time, the service was exceptionally, infuriatingly slow. It literally took 45 minutes to get more salsa for our chips and our food still wasn't out. Perhaps it was an odd night, don't know. I was amazed at... More

My first visit. The food was exceptional. Pre-meal chips and salsa. Chips were warm. I had the carne asana plate. Comes with guacamole and rice and beans. Also had a patron margarita. It was reasonable in price and the food was plentiful. Service was excellent and attentive. I would recommend a few amenities to add ambience. Placemats, and I felt... More

Ordered the flaming cheese. A little thick for my liking. Was like a half melted stick of cheese. The enchiladas were good. The fajitas were average. The restaurant is a little tacky outdated but maybe they just like mint and peach walls. Overall is was average. I still prefer El Zocalo in Detroit Mexicantown.
