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.

Our small group - four adults and one child - had dinner at El Palacio on a Saturday evening. We arrived early - probably around 4pm, and were seated immediately. I'm not usually a big fan of Mexican food, but this was incredible. Ok, I just had the Fiesta Cheese Crisp, but it was awesome. I also had tastes of... More

Food here is usually awesome, best bet is to sit in the dining area not the bar for food anyway. Service for food at the bar is super slow, usually like 2 or 3 people in there but their like a deer in the headlights. But if you want great Mexican food, you will get it here. Free chips and... More

We were greeted kindly And treated well. We ordered the fajitas special Abba it did not disappoint us. It was only 9.99 at dinner. It was obvious a waiter was being trained, but it caused no priblem at all and the manager ended up treating us each to a small fruit filled churro. It was good. We took home half... More

This was not the first time I have been here but on this particular evening the food and the service was not nearly as good as it normally is which is usually pretty good. We ate in the bar which was not busy at all, service was slow and food was just so so. My wife wasn't very hungry and... More

Loved the cute, lighted decorating on the outside, and the authentic Mexican decor on the inside. But the service and food were awful. I ordered the fajitas and my husband the burrito meal. We couldn't tell which was which, both were drowning in layers of liquid and unidentifiable mashed up ingredients.Food looked to disgusting to eat. Sign outside read "Fajitas... More
