El Palacio was a restaurant I would be sure to visit when in the Laughlin/Bullhead City area. Never again! Recommended the Mexican Buffet to some friends at lunch. The buffet was not good, food was scarce and cold. No tortilla, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, like you would expect with Mexican food. When I asked what the meat was, I couldn't... More

Went there for dinner about 7-ish. What a disappointment when you in the mood for Mexican. Thomas (#52) was terrible. He acted like he was doing us a favor...he was abrupt and acted like a drill sargeant !! Thomas needs a new line of work. Never asked how our food was because he probably knew we would have given him... More

This is our second time at El Palacio. We had lunch there our last trip to Laughlin in the Spring and decided to give it another try this time to see if it was as good as we remembered. It lived up to our expectations. We both had the mini chimi lunch special which comes with beans and rice. We... More

We have been coming here for several years and always have great service and food. We love to go to taco Tuesday's. You can order the crispy tacos from the kitchen or soft tacos from the cart. Both choices are excellent, and Jim the bartender is outstanding. Jim knows how to serve you quick and always knows what you want... More

With my Mom visiting we decided to eat Mexican food after our tour of Oatman, AZ. 1:15 in the afternoon they still had the lunch buffet open which we took on the advice of our waiter since I couldn't decide what to eat since it all looked good. Price was $6.95 per person and total bill for the 3 of... More

I love the "street tacos" here! The extra touch of mixing cilantro into their sour cream - is something I've only seen here. First things first, I judge Mexican food by two things - how good are the (1) chips and salsa (2) Beans and rice, and @el Palacios both are pretty frighten good!!! I have always good service, and...

Had the Fajitas with beans and rice. Steak was tasteless and cooked in a hurry no flavor at all. Rice was cold and dry and colored. Beans taste like maybe they added chorizo but it taste like they were going sour. Upside, great Margaritas!

The food is good but the service was slow. No bargain prices either. The decor is fun and colorful but the seats are a little hard to deal with, too low and wobbly.

My husband and I ate there for dinner. He doesn't like spicy food and explained that to the waiter. The food came out just the way my husband liked it. The staff was friendly and very professional. Very clean bathroom s. Will definitely go again.
