We stumbled on this restaurant on our way up the coast. The food was very good and it was reasonable. The house margaritas were good as well! This is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants - just wish it were closer to home. It was much better than anything we have tried in Port Lavaca!! - worth the drive.

We had been to Palacios Mexican Restaurant on previous stays in Palacios, so, feeling the need for Mexican, we decided to go for dinner. Our previous experiences were very good. The food is excellent, but on this night, the restaurant was taken over by a party of about 35 people. When we went in, there were about 6 people sitting... More

Every time we visit the Luther Hotel in Palacios, we eat at least one meal at the PMR as the restaurant is called by locals. The restaurant is always busy, is well staffed with friendly and competent wait staff and the meals hearty and well prepared. Mexican food at the PMR - a pleasing experience you shouldn't miss.

Wonderful restaurant. Excellent fried shrimp. Always a hard decision on what to order, fried shrimp or cheese enchiladas. Service is always excellent.

A very satisfactory Mexican restaurant with delicious shrimp fajitas. Weak but cheap margaritas, so I should have had something from their excellent selection of Mexican beers.

The meatless cheese enchiladas were hotter than a firecracker. I would consider the chips slightly stale but salsas, red and green are good.

Best seafood in town. The shrimp nachos and fried shrimp are great and the service is usually very good.

The only thing on the menu that I've had that I didn't really enjoy was the Chile's relleno. But the flavoring they use for their beef fajitas is absolutely excellent. Good Dependable place to eat

The service was very poor. We had 3 people coming to our table, but still took them forever to bring me another drink. The first bite of my meal was good, the next had no flavor, then the next had too much salt. How is this possible? Overall, it wasn't good. We went two times. We sat right next to... More
