I have gone here several times over the years. I like the place, but my friends don't. The enchiladas are my Favorite. One friend thinks the carpet smells bad so she won't go back. It looked old but I didn't notice anything.

We grew up in this area and this restaurant brings back such Memories. The food is traditional Mexican style. Sit down with your family and enjoy the fun atmosphere with Mariachis a neat bar and super good food. Extra cheese please! This really will remind you of when you were a kid and your parents take you to dinner and... More

La Paloma has been a stand by for many years. Visit with family & friends, for both lunch & dinner. Breakfast is offered on Sundays too. Great place for meeting friends to celebrate "occasions". The food is great, good margaritas, and a friendly staff.

Perhaps I should go back and try again but so far, one time is gonna do it for me. First impression is hard to get past, dark, sticky tables, old and old odors permeate this place. It was difficult to try and enjoy my greasy meal. Sorry I can't think of anything about this place that I liked.

Old school since 1966. We weren't to sure what to expect from the food at this restaurant because our friend told us the food was just okay. How could you go wrong with a restaurant that's been around for 50 years. We went on a Saturday afternoon and it had its steady flow of customers, the place has a lot... More

A few things stood out on our visit. -Noise:Maybe it was just a bad time in Friday night, but when we arrived the noise in the restaurant was like a rowdy bar. We could barely talk over the shouting. Later it calmed down, but this is not a place for relaxing dining or conversation. The lack of floor carpeting makes... More

Great food, great service, and great value. I have been coming here for years and it is consistently good. Don't let a full parking lot chase you away, the wait is usually short, if at all.

The food is always delicious and hot from the kitchen and is priced right. The servers in my experience are 5+. Once seated the chips and salsa immediately appears at your table followed by the drink orders. The servers are very attentive to their tables making sure everyone is taken care of. The atmosphere is lively and the music is... More

We've been going here for about 30 years. I do find that some foods are oversalted, like the chicken enchiladas and sometimes the carnitas. So, I usually order my favorite, the Tostada Suprema with either charro or black beans (both much healthier than refried), with shredded beef (this is never oversalted). They also have a good chili relleno. If you... More
