Love the tamales here. You get complimentary, all you can eat chips, salsa (hot and mild), and beans before your meal, My husband ordered the Godfather Burrito. Surprised when this 3lb burrito came on a platter. Tastes so good though. They have a lunch menu with smaller portions of everything.

The food was good, not great. The price was average. The Margarettas were wonderful. The staff was average. The place was really loud and not too cozy.

Great older Mexican food restaurant. Chips & Salsa are good. I had the Mexican Flag which was 3 LARGE enchiladas, each with a different sauce, (Red/White/Green) just like the Mexican Flag.

A comfortable family Mexican restaurant with good food and an excellent value. There's lots of seating options...I like the big booths. All of the traditional options are available; the Carnitas are excellent. The Margaritas are huge and excellent...not too sweet. Very good service too!

The service here especially during lunch is fast and the food is always good. I love the Mexican flag and get it almost every time I come here. They aren't consistent with bavjng desserts ready which is a bummer.

When in Kingman, we go to El Palacio at least once a week for lunch and sometimes for dinner. Love the staff, the chips/salsa, and I'd it's your birthday and Ricardo is there you are in for a treat!! The lunch specials are extremely reasonable, and the food is always amazing. The best Mexican food in town by far!

We came here for dinner while we were passing through town. The food was really good and the menu was extensive. Lots of options to chose from, even if you have a picky crew to feed. The margarita was very good and HUGE!

El Palacio is honestly hit and miss. Some nights their food is amazing and other nights not so much. They have great margaritas though. Worth giving them a try.
