My wife and I plus another couple dinned here on 10/18/16. The other couple is local but we are traveling from Texas. I mention that because South Texas offers so really great Mexican food and this dinner was right up there with some of our favorite places. We all had something different to eat and only heard good comments from... More

We had shrimp fajita's and seafood soup bowl (?) I'm not a fan but seems 2b a hit w/local's and bar area serves as a social watering hole. They have specials, TV's and a full bar. My other enjoyed the soup bowl but I tasted and was a little spicy for me. They serve complimentary chips w/hot & mild dip.... More

We love this place. The decor is all part of the fun. We always eat at the bar so we can chat with locals. This last trip, over Labor Day weekend, we ate exactly the same thing twice! Our favorite thing here is the bean dip, although this time it had almost no chili's in it, and we always ask... More

The quality of this food has dropped in the last couple of years. Drinks are still good but prices have increased. Not a repeat place to eat anymore

Two to three times a year for the last 10 years we make a weekend trip to Laughlin and each time we enjoy a meal at El Palacio in Bullhead City. The atmosphere is still nice, but our meals were bland and pretty much void of flavor, and the service was lacking big time. Our server was not rude, but... More

Lunch or dinner, El Palacio is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area. The Margaritas are great, the food is excellent and the prices are reasonable. They have a lunch buffet special as well.

This is a very quaint Mexican restaurant with all handmade furniture. The decor is very authentic as is the food. The service was good and the prices very reasonable.

Well, it's average. But DW didn't think so. Food is average, but the refried beans weren't according to DW who I consider a refried bean expert. It seems they have difficulty getting servers to work when needed for groups. While we were there 2 families left after ordering drinks due to the delay in getting their food order. The server...
