Over the past few years I have eaten at this La Palapa usually with a group of three friends. Over time I had the restaurant stamp a "frequent customer" program card reaching six stamps with the promise then of a free lunch. When I presented the completed card, I was told they had changed the program and they would not... More

We went with a group of people, made reservations days in advance, and when we arrived with 30 people, they had one waitress, and it took forever to get waited on and for our food to arrive. Everyone was friendly but for a Monday night they could have given us more than one waitress, to help. The food was ok,... More

I've been to La Palapa Too several times and had a few different items on the menu. All of it is good. Really... All of it. I recomment it.

Because this isn't it. The best thing about the meal was the chips that came with the watery salsa. Left most of my meal behind as Inedible. Good grief, even the beans and rice were terrible, and that's hard to get wrong. Restaurant felt grubby too. We won't be back.

This is a small restaurant but has good Mexican food. The servers were friendly and it was a good atmosphere. Not exceptional but a good experience.

Lovely decor and attentive service. They have a good selection of dishes and I am particularly fond of their mole sauce. I haven't had any of their desserts. It's not too noisy for conversation, either.

La Palapa Too makes delicious food. They have the best chicken nachos! Love their Chicken chimichangas and the California burrito is a keeper! I took my sister there once and she could not stop raving about it. To be honest, most everything on the menu is delicious. They have an awesome taco salad, fajitas and fresh chicken salad. They don't... More

We could not alter the ingredients in the seafood enchiladas because they are pre-made. Not sure if they are made in house or not. Restaurant charges for the second bowl of chips (1st bowl doesn't hold very many). Chicken taquitos, quesadillas, and camarones a la mexicana was tasty. Would have lunch here again. But parking lot gets full quick since... More

Hate to bash the entertainment, but every time we've sat outside, we wished the music was inside. The only thing I can compare it to, is the Will Farrel duo on SNL. Just terrible, But go for the great food, not the music.
