Great Local Mexican Restaurant

This is one of my favorite Mexican Restaurants. You need to know where you are going as they are right on the street but in a strip mall and you can easily pass them by. They make their own chips and salsa and you can tell just by the taste. The quality and quantity is exceptional and... read more

I have been a customer of La Paloma's for over 30 years. I have not ever had a bad meal or bad service at this restaurant. The food is always delicious and fresh. They have a great selection of items on the menu and the drinks and desserts are good as well. The honey chipotle steak tips are awesome. I... More

My friends and I have been coming here a couple of times in the past few months and we have not been dissapointed. I usually order something different everytime but I can tell you that the enchiladas and the fish tacos are awesome. The staff is attentive, they bring you chips and salsa right away and make sure to have... More

We've been coming to this restaurant for a few years and the food has been good but it really is time to change the menu. Maybe it is the case of "don't break what ain't broken". Definite 2 stars for the service tonight! I learned of the "specials" after I got the check when our server informed a table next... More

Judging by the packed house, La Paloma Mexican restaurant is one popular place. All four of us ordered different dishes and all were pleased with the result. The service was great and we received our order in a timely fashion. Expect to pay between $11 and $18 per order depending on the selection.

Everyone loved the fresh chips and salsa, and the three that ordered the chili con carne made the rest of us wish we had joined them. I selected the carne a la parrilla entree, and the honey chipotle glazed steak tips were some of the best I have had. LaPaloma is definitely worth the drive to Quincy.

My wife and I have been here many, many times over the past 25 years and the food is great. Many of the staff have been working here almost as long as we have been coming here to eat. I have tried many items but my favorite is a very simple burrito dish. Try it you will like it.

The food is good but nothing stands out. Service is OK but seating is a bit tight. Prices are a bit high for the quality and variety.

This little mexican joint has been around for decades in a little strip mall in Quincy. Great drinks, good food, excellent value. It's not a "special occasion" place but definitely a good place to grab a bite and drinks without going broke. Their house made salsa is the best!

While the service is friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is fun, the food is just not worth the money- bland and uninteresting. Good place for a get together over margaritas, but with so much good food in the area, why bother?
