Perfect Dive Mexican - excellent food

The best salsa guacamole and chips around . Try the Carne Asada or combo crispy chicken taco and chile rellieno. Beans are the runny pinto with lard and the rise is very flavorful. Taco salad is also great as are the enchiladas .

There are only a few good Mexican Restaurants in Carmichael as far as I am concerned, and El Palmar is one of them. They have a full bar which is unusual since it is not a chain that I know of. The service has always been great, but you better go early or late or you will be waiting in... More
