Great place and friendly service

Food is good and not expensive at all. Very cosy and friendly ambiance. Service was very good. Portions are big and close to authentic Mexican food.

Las Palapas is a nice place to meet with friends for food, drinks and laughter. You can make reservations. Menu offers a variety of entrees, which are all good and plates are plentiful. I would highly recommend for small group gatherings.

We moved here from San Diego, and this is the ONLY place that even comes close to satisfying us ,as far as Mexican food goes. The staff is great ,the food is even better... And it doesn't hurt that Hector, (the leader of the pack) FREAKING ROCKS!!

My son and I LOVE Las Palapas!! From the salsa, to the service, to the quickness from when you order to when it is brought out. We will always come here.

I could write an awesome review for this place weekly because that's how often we eat here. The food is always awesome, the chips and salsa are fabulous, and their bar is super. We patronize this place very often and never have a bad experience and we have never seen anyone else send back food or complain either. Highly recommend... More

Comfortable and casual, with fun atmosphere and tasty food, from mild to extra spicy. Service is good, food comes out hot and fast. Wide menu selections, certainly not fast food, well prepared and big portions. One of the better restaurants serving Mexican-style food outside Mexicantown, Mazatlan and Manzanillo.

I've been coming to this restaurant since I've lived in this area, and the food was always good. Great margaritas, chips and salsa good. Never had a bad dish and my husband and I try all types of things in the menu. The last time we went it wasn't as good, not sure what's happening. And the flavor of my... More
