Upscale fast food.

My husband and I ate here because we felt like eating something delicious but didn't feel like dressing up. Service was great. This place serves traditional border favorites and steaks. The seafood is Mexican style, so don't expect grilled bass. You will, however, get a fantastic fried red snapper... read more

A mainstay in Laredo, the Palenque Grill has a wide variety of Mexican food dishes for almost any preference. Portions are huge and the hot sauces are unique. Service staff seemed a bit perturbed to be there, from the hostess to the servers to the managers walking around. Despite that, it is a solid and consistent Mexican food experience and... More

I started with a cup of the poblano soup. It was AWESOME! Have eaten here twice, and I highly recommend it ... although it is pricey. The posole (pork stew) is also awesome. Fish, chicken, beef are all good. Great place to bring a date, or to bring friends. Just done forget your wallet ... you're going to need it.

Great place for a dinner for two. Prices are moderate, food and service excellent. Weekends are crowded but if you enjoy the lively friendly crowds, you'll enjoy your time here with your spouse.

I go to Laredo quite often on business. One place always go for dinner is Palenque Grill. It is authentic Mexican food and it is awesome. The appetizers are all very good and you have a nice selection of Mexican beers. I had a steak for the first time the last trip and it was incredible! This is the #1... More

Average Mexican Food. A little over priced. Nothing special. There's a Texas Road House in the same area...nice happy hour there.

Second time we've been here, and likely to be the last. First, when we walked in, we noticed duct tape holding down the carpeting. Then, my wife asks for a table vice booth. The manager states no tables are available, even though we can see an empty table for four. They walk us all the way to the back to... More

The dim lighting and trio playing boleros all night couldn't of been more perfect. The fajitas were cooked to perfection. lovely ambiance.
