I order the low carb special (steamed veggies, pico de gallo, grilled meat). The Burrito El Rey is great. The pork dishes are all authentic and delicious. If you don't like what you offered they will fix it for you. They carry Mexican beer and sodas here. Very nice wait staff. Very small restaurant. The California Burger is superb ordered... More

This is hands-down the best Mexican food in Thibodaux. It is a very small, hole in the wall type atmosphere with limited seating. The food is authentic and worth the visit! Will be returning!

This is a "used to be something else" restaurant. I think a Frostop or something. Anyway, it's a nice little authentic Mexican place that we really like. Seats maybe 40 people I bet.

Food is always fresh. The prices are reasonable. The only drawback is the small dining area with limited seating. Not good for a large party, but for a quick lunch alone or with a small party,this is the best Mexican food in town.

La Palma is a must stop if you want genuine Mexican food. The menu is diverse and portions are on the large side. Staff is friendly and the chips and salsa are excellent.

Lapalma has some of the best food including enchiladas, fajitas, and La Palma burger. The only down side is they need a bigger restaurant but I could eat there every night if possible :)
