Food is always fresh. The prices are reasonable. The only drawback is the small dining area with limited seating. Not good for a large party, but for a quick lunch alone or with a small party,this is the best Mexican food in town.

La Palma is a must stop if you want genuine Mexican food. The menu is diverse and portions are on the large side. Staff is friendly and the chips and salsa are excellent.

Lapalma has some of the best food including enchiladas, fajitas, and La Palma burger. The only down side is they need a bigger restaurant but I could eat there every night if possible :)

Genuine Mexican food with good service and atmosphere. Free chips and salsa while you wait. Alcohol is available and the owner was present on my visit. Tried to eat a huge burrito when I was there because it is free if you can finish it. I didn't make it but I tried and it was great.

My family fell in love with this restaurant years ago after our first visit. Since then, they have expanded their menu, but I'm the only one in my family who experiments. My husband and children always order the same thing, but I have never been disappointed with anything I try. My favorite is the shrimp burrito el Rey- lots of... More

Not my favorite in town. Mediocre at best! Food was just ok a step up from Taco Bell IMO. I would not eat here again unless there were no other choices for Mexican in town.
