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...

The building is one of the better places in Bullhead City but that is about the best thing they have going for them. The food is bad and they do not seem to care. The seating is ragged and torn. I tried them several times over the years when they were the only ones in town. Fortunately, there are better... More

The atmosphere is very nice. It is spacious & a little loud as you want it to be when you are in a group , where tables will be closer , as it fills up for the evening.
