An upscale Mexican Resturant in Palm Springs

Family Owend, Very Friendley, No Pressure and Very Good. As I often do I ask the Waiter just bring me what ever you sell the most of, I like all Foods.

Is in the middle of nowhere and was closed when supposedly open. Decided to go somewhere else. A little surprised at the other reviews and being on the "top 10 in Palm Springs". Maybe is nice when open, but I don't think I would have stopped by even if open, considering the surroundings. First time a tripadvisor review has failed... More

We visited over thanksgiving last year and found the place to be very accommodating with good food and a friendly atmosphere. Service was great even though they were busy. It is a good family restaurant.

I had a local recommend La Perlita so I gave it a shot. I really enjoyed seeing the desert iguanas hanging around outside, and the food was very good. The salsa was tasty, the chips were fresh, my enchiladas were on point and the service was friendly. The prices are reasonable too. Great place to go if you're craving Mexican.... More

Chose it, because we love Mexican food and trusted the reviews. I just can confirm other reviews. We stayed in the Center of Palm Springs, so we had to drive there. Glad we did. The food was delicious and our impression was that the patrons were eager to provide a dining experience. Very friendly service and very good value.

Angel, the owner, was charming and gave great advice on the various dishes. The chile rellenos were outstanding. Small place can get crowded, so get there early. Off the beaten path but well worth it! Enjoy!!

Don't let the location in a little strip mall or the very simple environment stop you from having some great Mexican food. This is a family run business and every member of the family takes pride in their service and the food. Mama really does the cooking. The chili rellenos were wonderful. They use Pablano chilis which are perfect. Even... More

Very Friendley and a classie Mexican restaurant, as I often do is to ask the waiter just bring whatever is the best Of the day.

Got a recommendation from a friend to visit this restaurant. The location is lackluster in a strip mall next to a dirt field. The interior lacks any type of theming. When we arrived, the place was empty and we received the full attention of two servers and the owner. We felt welcomed. All the entrees were described, and we had... More

If you want home made food served by family, THIS IS THE PLACE! It was the best homemade food served by either the daughter, son, or dad. Not to mention it was really tasty. We also had margaritas. And they were excellent ( we are very picky). So if you are in Palm Springs you gotta eat there.
