From time we ordered until we left, service was lame, presentation of food and quality was under performance. Ordered soda, never got it, got water instead, chicken bone that wasn't seen until too late was in nachos, ordered ground beef burrito but got steak instead,...More

Wonderful experience. Really good service and atmosphere. Made me feel welcome. Had the chile relleno and enchilada with ground beef. They were good, but they had the best refried beans I've ever had. The bartender said they hear that a lot. Excellent chips and salsa...More

This is a good place to stop and grab something to drink and have nachos. They're very good here. The other offerings are tasteful and varied. The service is very good too.

Horrible food. The chips and salsa was terrible but I went ahead and ordered. The meal I ordered was horrible also, the waiter new I didn’t like it and he didn’t care. Don’t go to this place. Money wasted and left hungry.

I'm from Texas and we eat TexMex several times a week down here. As a comparison, Las Palmas was just OK. There aren't a lot of options in this neck of the woods. Large portions, but not very seasoned. Hot sauce needed some serious heat...More

Without a doubt the food here is rivaled by none in the area. The restaurant is so authentic that the waiters have a bit of trouble with English.

If you’re in the area and it’s Mexican cuisine you’re after, this is must have. The margaritas are excellent and the chefs obviously know what they are doing. The decor is authentic, the bar tenders and wait staff are friendly and there is outdoor seating...More
