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.

I read online reviews going back a few years. I was skeptical due to some of the negative reviews. I am so happy I seen for myself. Took wife and son for Wife Birthday Dinner, a family Tradition. Had an appetizer which ate like a meal then the meal came, full plates and filled with wonderful food. As there are... More

Our favorite Mexican food restaurant in Kingman. They have pretty good food and the prices are reasonable. The salsas and bean dip served free with all orders are tasty and have free refills. The staff are friendly and service is quick.

I read the reviews and decided to give it a try. I wasn't disappointed! Great food at great prices. Special lunch menu. Didn't try the margaritas, but several people were drinking them at lunch. They have several other restaurants in AZ, so will be on the lookout for good Mexican food in their other locations!
