This is the best little find in downtown murphy! Ask for the roasted salsa to eat with your chips and you won't be disappointed. Very friendly staff and great food!

Chips and salsa were great, drinks came out fast, place smelled like good food.... The burritos etc tasted and felt like they were just microwaved. Hope were wrong

Good food and value all around. As mentioned elsewhere, very friendly and quick service. Tripadvisor indeed has the name right - it IS La Palma.

Hole in the wall Mexican but good food and price. Chips and salsa was delicious and bottomless. Enchiladas Supremas was yummy but a little smaller then expected. We had $1 Dos Equis in frosty mugs. Place was empty Sun at 8pm.

Had a nice meal on a Sunday evening when traveling through Murphy on our way to Asheville. The buffet was tempting but we weren't that hungry so we split an order of tasty chicken fajitas. Reasonable prices and great food. We'll be back!
