A college buddy introduced me to this place about 6 years ago, and ever since it's been a must-go place to bring visitors to eat. If you like a more "American" cuisine then try the chimichanga's, but for a more authentic taste I recommend the Pork Sopes.

Try... More

Service is very friendly and attentive! They have a neat little chips and salsa bar that is self-serve. I originally fixed myself some chips and what I thought was hot sauce. It was warm and I couldn't quite tell if it was salsa or not. However, I figured out they had cold salsa variations near the end of the self-serve... More

Everything comes together in the La Palma dining experience. The food is very authentic with great flavors and textures. The service adds to the pleasure of the meal. Their steaks are wonderful.
