I keep going back, the food is fantastic.

I go at least twice a month, but the service is usually terrible. Restaurant is usually so busy, it's sometimes hard to get someone to take our order. Food is always great but service has it's ups and downs.

Tasty Mexican food. The enchiladas were great. Huge Margheritas. Complimentary salsa. This is a busy place open for breakfast, lunch and dinner but closing at 9pm! A little lacking in service. As we walked in we were handed a beeper. No explanation, no idea of how long a wait might be, no welcome. We had to ask twice to order.... More

I visited this restaurant with my husband. When we entered we informed the lady that we were both vegetarian. We were given complimentary tortilla chips and dips prior to ordering. We were told that one of the dips was a bean dip. We tucked into it thinking that it was beans, as we had been told. You can imagine our... More

Cool restaurant in the old downtown of Kingman. The food was great, large portions. The beer was cold and there is a pretty good selection. They had a nice lounge area. The staff was great and they really take care of you. When I'm in Kingman again I'll be back.

The lunch specials are the best value for the money and service is great! so much food for the money. Dinner is just as good. Room for large groups also.

Took out of town family to El Palacio, what was our favorite Mexican restaurant in Kingman, for what we had described as some of the best Mexican food we had eaten. Boy were we in for a shock. We decided to eat early to beat the evening rush, and that seemed to be our mistake. The food we were served... More

The place was packed with locals. The chicken tacos were very bland. I tried both the soft and hard shell version. Service was friendly but not a place for foodies.

El Palacio in Kingman, Az is probably the best Mexican restaurant in the area. They have happy hour from 3-6pm Mon-Thurs. It's the best prices during this time for drinks & food. Don't miss out because it's delicious & very reasonable!

Left Oyster ' s after waiting 5 minutes just to get a seat while it was not even busy. So, we drove downtown and found a great dinner place. Very good service and delicious food. I absolutely recommend this to anyone.
