because of its great reviews from TripAdvisor, we thought we would check it out. It is in a little strip mall away from the main drag a bit but worth the find. salsa is probably the best n town. Great service and reasonable rates.Enjoyed the Tostada salad.

Great family run restaurant! Perfectly made chile relanos and veggie enchilada! Excellent service by friendly staff. While lunching there, the mama of the restaurant returned from the market with bags of very fresh looking avocados, peppers, lettuce...waiters went out to help her bring the bags into the kitchen! Truly a go to place when in Palm Springs! Outstanding chips too!

Unassuming, off the beaten path, but a great find. Staff was attentive and courteous, food was excellent and plenty of it. Chicken enchilada was wonderful!

Third time at Perlita. We come back every vacation. Food is inexpensive and authentically good...and it is cooked fast. Chili relleno is best we've ever had. Margaritas are tasty. Friendly staff and owners.

Went to LP based on TA review. I had the Barbacoa which was served in a chafing dish with a lot of red sauce. It's a combo of beef and pork and falls apart it is so tender. The dish is served with rice and beans and tortillas. My wife had the shrimp with the chipotle cream sauce, same sides... More

We were in Palm Springs for 4 nights and we ate here twice - Unheard of for us. We like to try different places, but La Perlita was so good, we came back 2 days after our first meal.

We stopped in this restaurant on a Sunday early evening and were pleasantly surprised by the friendly service, good Margarita and tasty meals we had. Though it is a small place the staff was good and food presented was abundant. Prices average for amount of food gotten.

We just experienced the best Mexican food we have ever eaten. It was simply amazing. Delicious beyond belief. Would highly recommend it. A bit off the beaten path but well worth the 10 minute drive from downtown. Do yourself a favour and try it. If you like Mexican food, you will not be disappointed.

Some times I like to go back to a place after a period of absence to see if what was once is still now accurate. I dropped into La Perlita on a Saturday around 3pm.... a normal dead time doe many places to see how they were doing. I was at once surprised that they were almost filled to capacity...... More
