Service and food quality off tonight

Usually Polenque's is reliable but today they were off. Soup came after dinner and could not be cancelled. If you order soup, insist it is delivered first. The chimicanga is best with shredded beef, but we forgot to request it, so they default with ground beef. Kinda unappetizing. We asked for soup... read more

Me and my family have been coming here 2 to 4 times a month for the past 10 years. Always great food and superb service. We really love Tony. Try the pollo con crema or the arroz con pollo both are always amazing. Enchiladas are pretty darn good as well

We go here as it's close, but I always leave disappointed with the food. It's all just bland and lacks flavor. Other mexican restaurants are much better IMO.

Enjoy the view with a Margaretta, great chips and salsa and friendly service. Long time Liberty Lake favorite for Mexican food.

We eat here whenever we want quick, good Mexican food. It's especially nice to sit out on the deck overlooking the golf course on a nice sunny day. The pollo con crema and the combination plate are our favorite menu items. Nice to be able to walk to a local restaurant.

What a great meal! I had a Burrito combo. It was hot, delicious and plenty of left overs! My wife and I have been there many times, the service is always good and on a nice day you can sit on the outside patio and lookout at Trail-head golf course.

We were promptly seated and the waiter was attentive throughout the meal. I ordered chiles rellenos with rice. The portion was generous but very bland and boring. It was difficult to find the mushy chile in among all the breading. I suspect it was a canned chile. The sauce was also uninteresting. There was nothing bad about the meal but... More

Always enjoy eating at Palenque due to the quality of customer service. The food is tasty but not as spicy as I would prefer. Go for the Burrito Colorado and ice cold Tecate Beer! The staff will seat you, even if they are 10-minutes from closing time. I really appreciate the staff. So friendly and efficient.

I've been here many times and always enjoyed my food. Good service, good prices, good location. Standard Mexican fare - chips and salsa when seated. Typical tacos, burritos, enchiladas, beans & rice. Good outdoor seating. Been in this location now for quite some time - must be doing something right.

My wife and I went there on the recommendation of a friend. The food was good and a good value. The inside is typical cantina decór. The fact that this restaurant shares the building with a golf course pro shop seems a bit out of place, and prevented a better rating from me. Nothing wrong with the place, just a... More
