For truly gluttonous eating

People are often rather nasty about Palenque town. I found it very typical of the sort of place that, as the result of hard effort and "development", has managed to pull itself out of the poverty mire, largely of course due to tourisim. There are lots of interesting little shops and the bands play... read more

We came by a mexican recommendation, we were more than 1hour waiting just for some quesadillas and a camaron cocktail, basic meals... There was non stop people coming and singing, selling things and very noisy. We were next to another couple that came also from a local recommendation. We beleice its the only one they recommend dispite the poor service.

Awful service The restaurant was nearly empty and it took us half hour to get our drinks and 1 1/2 hr to get our food Poor Taste on the food But there isn't much to choose from. Chiapas is a beautiful place they should really work on the food

Choice in palenque town is pretty limited, so a lot of people end up here. It's nothing special, but it is fine. Just don't go alone, you couldn't possibly finish even one dish!

But very good food. Nice vibe too. Service could be much better. We liked the shrimps, the chicken, the nachos and the lemonade

We decided to try Las Tinajas for breakfast before our trek to the ruins of Palenque and we were really more than satisfied with the service and the portions of the food. My daughter ordered a fruit salad that easily fed both her and myself. I ordered eggs and hot cakes that filled my plate to overflowing. The hot chocolate... More

food portion was huge, my chicken order included a whole bird, impossible to eat it all , each order is at least good for 2 people, service is mediocre and it takes time as they cook everything to order.

During our recent visit to Palenque I had 3-4 restaurants in mind to try and we happened to stumble onto Las Tinajas first. We ordered chicken enchiladas with dark mole and some beef tacos. I'm not sure what we were expecting, but the enchiladas blew us away! The mole was the best either of us had ever tasted. The beef... More

At the mid afternoon time we stopped it was quite in this good sized place. We shared Chicken a la Veracruzano and Chicken Milanesa. We could have done with just one order, as both plates were very large. The Chicken Milanesa was breaded & fried and served with lots of fries and tomato slices. It was very good, except for...

Las Tinajas is a gem (though you'll need good directions to find it.). This was the second time I had eaten breakfast there (this time with my wife and last time by myself in Jan, '13), and this restaurant does not disappoint! Delicious food, generous portions, great service, friendly prices. My kind of place!
