This place was actually better than average, but short of very good. In fact, it appeared that West Yellowstone had few very good places to eat at all so we picked this one because of its higher ranking and because it was such a quirky idea. You go inside the bus to place your order from the extensive menu of... More

The food was very delicious. I tried 3 types of food, 6 Tacos, Super Macho Burrito, Enchiladas. I have never tried mexican food, but now I love it. A bus is pretty cute, and servers are very polite.

After a long day at Yellowstone the hubs googled for a great local restaurant to have a late dinner. Las Palmitas had very high reviews. Being from Socal and used to eating great mexican food, I was very skeptical. OMG, I was so wrong. This place was amazing! I had a few people in our party even go as far... More

Best authentic Mexican food since our yearly trips to Baja. So good you keep thinking about the great taste. You would walk right by if you didn't ask around town or read a review. A must eat experience when in W. Yellowstone MT.

My wife and I had the Asada Tacos and Carnitas and the food was excellent. Even better than last year. The price was also reasonable as compared to other local restaurants.

I was told about this establishment by some friends and they were spot on. Had the green chile enchilada and it was quite tasty. The place was packed and there were so many great choices on the menu. If you like this type of food be sure to dine here.

The staff was very friendly and the tacos were very good. We went here after an early morning in the park. It's very unique and better than the tacos we get back home.

This is a funky restaurant but one that will impress anyone who doubts Wyoming can have good Mexican food. The owner and his family run things, and they take personal pride in their work that shows in the food and their overall friendliness. I ate here consistently during a 5-day stay and enjoyed every meal. The prices are very non-tourist-trap,... More
