We go to this place ever so often because it is always open. Very average Mexican food, not so good, not so bad. Service has always been okay, good location, lots of parking. Reasonable prices.

I have been to other La Palapas and have been great, but this was location was below standards. Food qualities was not good, service was lacking although not many people at business. Torn seats and place looked dirty.

I always stop by this restaurant on Walzem Road when visiting from Austin. It is perhaps one of the best restaurant chains in San Antonio. I am very picky about tortillas being home made, and these certainly are. The food is fresh and delicious. No complaints here. Service is great, location is great, and the food is incredible. It is... More

My son and I tried this while staying overnight in San Antonio. Would have rather gone without dinner. I had the appetizer platter with Quesadillas, Chicken Flautas, Chili Con Queso, Chicken Fajita nachos, Guacamole and Sour Cream. I will describe each item. Chili Con Queso was average. Guacamole was brown. Quesadilla was 2 tortillas with a teaspoon of cheddar cheese... More

One of, if not THE best of what was once an excellent local chain. Okie Burrito w/beef fajitas is a favorite. The tortilla soup and flauta combo. is a good lighter alternative.
