This place is an icon. Ask anyone about La Paloma and they love it. Small quaint location with great food. Great tasting food with a good variety and selection. Must go and try them out!

We've been eating here for 27 years, ever since we moved to La Verne. We enjoy the food and margaritas. They're always good. My husband's favorite is the Ensalada de la Casa and I love the chicken tacos. Other items are good also. Everything is consistently good. Occasionally the service can be slow, but usually it's fine.

We were here in April with the extended family. Mother ordered a chili relleno that she really enjoyed. Another ordered the taquitos which was good, with guacamole (great.) A few of us found the red salsa too spicy hot, but Mother said that the chili relleno was perfect, and that she really liked it. He bought out a green salsa... More

This restaurant has been here for years and it's consistently the same. The rice and beans are good and the salsa has a medium heat.

Echoing one of the other reviewers, what I have to say about La Paloma is that it serves consistently good food, across the board. While some establishments have especially good tamales and others might be known for their burritos or tacos, pretty much anything I order here is good. Family-owned and run, it has a friendly atmosphere. Portions are ample,... More

This restaurant has been in business for many years. The food is consistently good and the service is excellent. I would have given 5 stars but the noise level is high especially if there is a party going on. The wait time for seating isn't long as this restaurant is quite large.

The service and food here are excellent. I love the enchiladas, especially the cheese enchiladas. The beans and rice are very good too. My husband loves the taco's and rice. Great service and good food, what more could you want in a Mexican Restaurant?

It was great to get back to La Paloma and find virtually nothing had changed. Chile Rellanos and Carnitas are the best I have had, anywhere. Manager Steve runs a superb crew of waiters and waitresses - always on top of things and ready before you are.

Great combination plates, Nice courtyard-style décor, prompt service. Chimichangas are well seasoned and crisp. Savory salsa. Really great carnitas. Takeout is just as good as dine-in.

La Paloma is the Mexican restaurant I used to go to in my teens and twenties. A recent visit forty years later and nothing has changed. Same exterior. Same interior but now with big screen tv . Same old carpet tired and dirty. Be prepared to leave smelling of fried food. We were seated next to the kitchen and service... More
