“NOT A SINGLE COMPLAINT... EXCELLENT PLACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

i had a 2 for 1 coupon for this place so a friend and I decided to try it. What a very wonderful suprize we got. The building is commercial like, but beautifully maintained. The place itself is bright, not so mexican decorated, but the food is excellent. The service was almost too good with several people continuing to check on us throughout the meal. Servings are very generous and the food was served hot and the beer cold! I especially like the "slaw" they serve along with the chips and salsa. We will definately make this the go to mexican food place. I can't understand how someone can say portions were small! The fajita plate could have fed twice as many people as were ordered for. Go back to Salsa Brava.

“Supurb Food, Excellent Mexican Restaurant, Reasonable Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

The entire meal was excellent. Seldom do I find tasty, moist, very flavorful rice in a Mexican restaurant. This was one of the two such restaurants where I happily ate the rice. All the food was very plentiful & delicious. I often go where coupons are offered, but this restaurant's prices are very reasonable.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Usually I go to Salsa Brava but wanted to try a different place. The food was good nothing to rave about. Asked for an order of guac which was the smallest order I have ever been served. I thought the entree portions were small as well.

“Very good chicken mole and very good service in a clean, spacious restaurant..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We have eaten mole all over the southwest and even in the city where it was created, Puebla, Mexico, and my husband and I agreed that the mole he ordered at Las Palmitas was surprisingly good. It had just the right mix of spice and sweetness. I had a two-item combination plate; the chile relleno was made with a poblano chile, not spicy enough for my taste, but it was good, and the enchilada was good but nothing special. However, the rice and the refried beans were much better than on most combination plates.

The restaurant is in a commercial complex, which makes it seem a bit out of place. But once inside, you will find a very clean, inviting and open dining space with authentic food and good service.

“Good Food, Good Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This was a nice, clean Mexican restaurant. I had the combination plate but wished to change out an item, they were quick to agree. The whole experience was pleasant and enjoyable. This restaurant is only a couple of blocks from Embassy Suites which made it a favorite choice for us.
