surprisingly good authentic Mexican food

I've seen the restaurant many times and the fruit for sale outside but never stopped. But tonight I wanted a Mexican takeout not Taco Bell and not one of the small restaurant groups, I looked at the reviews and gave it a try. I ordered tamale taco and then chelada with rice and beans. When I got... read more

This review is more directed at people driving through Shelton, perhaps on their way to the Hood Canal, as anyone who lives in Shelton already knows about how awesome this place is. The tacos are legit Mexico City style street tacos with corn tortillas, cilantro, dice onions and your choice of amazing meat: carnitas, carne asada, pollo. The ingredients are... More

They try. The prices are quite low. But sadly, the food is about 1.5 stars (and I am so sorry, but I don't know that the word star applies here). And I so hate giving a bad review. But I went there because it was convenient and other reviews suggested that it might be acceptable. So I write this to... More

We stopped here on our way through town. We were not disappointed. All the reviews nailed it. Good, hot Mexican food. We love Mexican so are always looking for good authentic places. Service was fast and attentive. We felt welcome immediately.

This little "Hole in the Wall" is hard to find, but the food is consistently good. Reminds me of being in Mexico. Very informal. They do lots of take outs. Not huge portions like some places, and they don 't fill you up on rice and beans.

The beef tacos are the best! Get a grilled jalapeno on the side to go with it and you are set. My mom gets #6, which looks wonderful. The beef burrito are good, but they are even better when you add cilantro.

This Mexican restaurant is as authentic as you can get. Dishes such as Tripe and Lingua and soda made in mexico (real sugar). Great prices and owners.

These are what Tacos are supposed to be! Also the wet burritos are delicious. I think if they served Margaritas I would pretend I was in Mexico :)

Awesome family run restaurant in of all places, Shelton, WA. We are very familiar with Mexican food as we live in AZ half the year. We always take our visitors to Las Palmas to prove to them that we do have the best Mexican restaurant north of the border. I love their carnitas tacos and green sauce. Hubby likes the... More
