Pretty Good Fast Food Mexican

They have a great salsa bar here with just about everything imaginable. The tacos are great and pretty big too. Chips are self serve along with the salsa. Try the Fajita Tacos, they're great.

There were 10 of us for dinner and the staff helped us setting up our table. I had the sirloin taco and man was it good, just the way I remembered it. I like the salad bar with all of the condiments they offered. We were in here for two hours and nobody tried to "run" us out letting us... More

My first experience at Taco Palenque was not great . We ordered a Caldo de Res and it left much to be desired and plus it was overpriced , served in foam bowl with very little carne de res ( beef) it should have been called vegetable soup instead . The one redeeming factor was a group of young people... More

Going to Laredo isn't what I call lots of fun but been going there for over 20 years and the savior is this place. The salsa bar is awesome. Are there better places? Probably but I really like this place. Good prices and great food.

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. Then came the days of the new specials on their popular "pirata" taco and the expansion of the chain.... More

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 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!
