Good food, good prices

Overall the food was very good, not great. I think it might be the best in Red Deer, but I've had much better in the states. Prices were good and portions good too. Nice atmosphere here as well.

Met friends for lunch on my limited lunch beak. Service was fast and efficient and excellent food. Was able to have a great visit and lunch and back to work on time.. I have been there may times and it is always consistent with great food and service.

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children. Our kids enjoy the kids menu here, I love the margaritas and hubby loves the Mexican beer. Last night however the service was not good. She came to take drink orders and we told her we were ready to order our meals as well. I was hoping to order off... More

Its not the best mexican restaurant around but then its not in texas. For Canada and in Red deer, its one of the good mexican places. The service is ok .The ambience is good for the price. Taste of the food is above average and the quantity is good.

Small, comfy venue. Delicious free salsa and chips as appetizer. Had the prime rib (arracheras?) that was marinated and grilled. Side of rice, corn tortillas and reformed beans. Corn tortillas weren't great, but otherwise the meal was delicious. No room for dessert. Not sure what other people are taking about re: small portions and no flavour to food.... I'd go... More

This was the biggest waste of money thus far during my trip to Red Deer. The food is almost-certainly pre-packaged (the waitress told me that I couldn't have a burrito made without tomatoes because it was pre-rolled), they served us Uncle Ben's rice, and the food made me sick. Also, who puts feta cheese on frijoles? The salsa that they... More

I ate here on a recent trip to Red Deer and was pleasantly surprised. I'm a fan of Mexican food and have it regularly when in southern California so I wasn't expecting much in central Alberta. I had the chicken enchiladas which were very good and the rice side was flavourful. The only downside is the complimentary chips that started... More

If you are in town definitely go to Las Palmeras if you like Mexican food. The portions are huge, the staff are friendly and it's a very nice atmosphere to be in. Really good for dates and couples.

Ate here for the first time after seeing lots of great reviews but we found it to be very boring and lacking in flavor. The service was fine and the drinks we order were your typical Margarita and Pina colada. But wouldn't suggest to others
