Good authentic Mexican Food at Fast Food Price

The food was hot and fresh, and service was fast. Can order with little trouble in English but is best if you have someone who speaks Spanish. Most employees do not speak English but can understand enough.

Taco Palenque was once a restaurant that served as the standard for other chains in town. Prices were high, but tacos were so stuffed, they were packed with extra tortillas so patrons were accustomed to making two tacos out of one.

Taco Palenque has that best breakfast and lunch tacos. It's a perfect place to eat as a couple or the whole family. The Pirata taco is a must have, imagine a flour tortilla with beans, cheese, and beef fajita with a margarita on the side 😛. I love their salsa bar and chips!

Great food, reasonable prices but the cleanliness of the dining room and restrooms makes you want to get your order for carry out or drive thru.

The food was good, but a little pricey - especially for a lunch! i got something - I think it's called a fajita bowl. Really hot, fresh, and tasty food, Wasn't inexpensive, though - spent as much for two on lunch as we do on many dinners.

When in Laredo I always stop for breakfast tacos. It is like the Taco Bell of the south just better! I love the toppings bar which makes good to better.

It seems as if every time I return to this restaurant the portions get smaller and tge price increases. The food is still good but the value has disappeared.

My friends and I visited Taco Palenque through San Bernardo. Their food and service was awesome. However, when it came to serving the sauce and everything that is set in the middle of the restaurant, oh my God there were people tasting the guacamole and other sauces, they would put their finger in the sauce and then lick their finger...
