Enchiladas are delicious. Order the Cadillac Margaritas by the pitcher -- worth it! Carnitas Burrito was moist and tasty.

La Tablita is not in an impressive location, being next to Dollar Tree in a strip mall on Highway 111, but is well worth a detour. This is one of the better Mexican restaurants in the area, serving good quality food with a smile at very reasonable prices. If you like Margaritas, have a pitcher for less than $20, serves... More

The colorful decor, the alert servers, and authentic, fresh food made this an instant favorite! Wish we had similar in our town in Colorado.

This restaurant is very popular with the locals and is almost always crowded on the weekends. The margaritas just be great because I see a lot being served (I don't drink). Try the fajitas or any of the "Salsa Verde" dishes.

Simple, flavorful not the usual plate full of grease and cheese which I must admit I enjoy now and then. But this was more authentic, more homestyle, and very good. We three enjoyed the relleño. I REALLY enjoyed the margarita. Atmosphere and decor perfect to someone like myself who has lived in Guadalajara. The service friendly, my brother and his... More

The Palm Springs area does have quite a large selection of Mexican Restaurants; but, this one is tops. Large menu with the very freshest items that just melt in your mouth. Large free parking lot. Not recommended for kids as this place is considered somewhat romantic, or being a social place for a group of friends to dine. You will... More

It is hard to fine a good and interesting variety of Mexican inspired food and this place offers both. I am a fan of Pasole, a hominy and pork based soup. Had some just awful Pasole in Las Vegas at Guy Fiere restaurant. But here at La Tabilita the Pasole was outstanding. It was green based rather than tomatoe based... More

This has been a favorite for years, this time not only did the service dip, so did the flavors. It is off my lists for now

We just moved to Cathedral City and this restaurant was recommended by the locals. It is so good! The prices are right, the food was tasty (Abuelita's tamales!) and the drinks were a generous poor. The service was very friendly, prompt and just the right amount of attentiveness. We will definitely be back!
