Great atmosphere and food. I've had the burrito and fajitas and both were very good. I highly recommend this place.

We dined at 2 in the afternoon. No one was in the restaurant. You would think the service would be good, right? WRONG! It took 20 minutes to have our order taken. It was 30 minutes to get our order. To make it worse, no less than 5 times our waiter kept coming to tell us they are working on... More

OK Mexican food. I wasn't that impressed for the amount we paid it was just okay. I really don't if I'd ever go here again. I guess if I were really hungry for Mexican food it would suffice. Again, a little pricing for what you get.

I judge Mexican restaurants by how well they do chiles rellenos, and mine was quite good. The accompanying carne asada was tough but tasty. Most of my table mates thought the food was merely OK. The service was good, but they irritated me a bit when they suggested that our group sit at a table near the kitchen and clearing... More

El Palacio is like any Americanized Mexican chain restaurant. It appeals to lots of people however, it does not support those that know real Mexican cuisine. There are better Mexican restaurants in Bullhead City/Laughlin.

I was hungry for Mexican food and we spotted this restaurant. We had eaten at another one in Kingman and enjoyed the food. I always enjoy the combination plates. The margaritas were very good. Guacamole was very pricey and small compared to other Mexican restaurants. Still a good choice for good food.

We had dinner here Saturday. We were a group of 8 and were seated right away. The restaurant looks like they have plenty of room. The server did a great job. We kept him running for drink refills, napkins, etc. Our drinks and appetizers were delivered right away as were our meals. Everything was perfect. We will return again when... More

We were in Laughlin for a graduation and needed a place for lunch. This was our second day there and my wife said she noticed a lot of cars in this restaurant's parking lot each time we passed. The service was incredibly slow (5 mins at least for her to return with waters, 5 mins for two (wonderfully cold) draught... More
