Great Mexican Food

We found this gem while driving around Marina looking for a restaurant that was still open at 8:00 pm on a Sunday. Fortunately, we came across this place. We had the carne asada burrito supreme and chicken tamales, both were excellent. Whatever you get, be sure it has some of their fresh guacamole!

As long as you are not in a hurry, I highly recommend you try El Palmar. The service is slow only because it's a husband and wife doing everything. Go their have a beer or a drink at the bar next store, relax expect that you will be there for a little bit and you wont be disappointed. We eat... More

The food at El Palmar is wonderful. You might have to wait a bit to get it but it is worth the wait. A very friendly restaurant, Friday nights are especially good as William Faulkner is usually here playing the Jalisco Harp.
