I don't understand all the hype. I also am not a fan of restaurants in strip malls. But anyways, this place wasn't all that great. The restaurant could use a face-lift, both on the inside and out. Let's just say I didn't feel like I was in Mexico eating authentic cuisine. I felt like I was in Quincy, in a... More

We went to La Paloma on the spur of the moment one night after work. I've been several times before, and the food is always great. I tried the Enchiladas Verdes (might not have the exact right name, but it had verdes sauce) for the first time, and it was AMAZING! It was all I could do to keep my... More

Went with my wife for lunch. Service was great, food was good but the restaurant itself needs to have a makeover. Way too cluttered and it just looks tired. The food was good, the portion size was good and the wait for the food was not long at all.

I have eatan at La Paloma many times over the past several years. They have great salsa and good food at reasonable prices. Although it is located in a non descript strip mall the inside is small but pleasant. The service is attentive and fast. If you ar looking for standard Mexican fare with fresh ingredients at a good price,... More

Ordered take out from La Paloma last week. It was our first time ordering from this place and we've wanted to check it out for a little while now. Our food was okay; it's definitely a step up from fast food, but its not authentic Mexican. I probably will not go there ever to dine in or order any more... More

The standard menu has become a little boring so I tried one of their specials for the day - pork loin stuffed with spinach & cheese with a spicy honey glaze, pinto beans and rice. What a good choice! My wife's dish was quite plain but vegetarian options are always limited.

I have enjoyed meals here for many years. I even remember when the restaurant was half the size. It's a cute place not over done with kitsch. (Just a few pieces). The food and drinks are yummy... The salsa is spicy but not hot. It has a tang that sits on your tongue and it gets you ready for that... More

I hadn't eaten here for a while and forgot how good the food is. Large portions. Friendly service. A nice variety of Mexican and quasi-Mexico. Having been to the heart of Mexico (not the tourist areas) many times, I know the difference between good Mexican & plastic US knock-off Mexican. This food is very good. The place is hidden away...

I enjoyed my food, and would go back for the food. However it's very small and we were packed in tight to the table next door. Also our particular waitress was not so nice and barely noticed us needed service.
