This isn't JUST the best Mexican food in Thibodaux, its great Mexican in general & definitely the best I've had anywhere in the South. I'm from San Diego, CA, my best friend is a chef from Mexico, believe me, I know Mexican food. No, this isn't Texas style so don't expect that, its Western Mexico/Southern California style, if you've ever... 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. I live about 20 minutes away and go there maybe every month at most but enjoy it when I do. There's a self-service nacho bar with chips,... More

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 :)

Genuine Mexican food with good service and atmosphere. Free chips and salsa while you wait. Alcohol is available and the owner was present on my visit. Tried to eat a huge burrito when I was there because it is free if you can finish it. I didn't make it but I tried and it was great.

I just now had the opportunity to enjoy a very delicious Mexican meal. The service is perfect and it has a very local cozy environment. To start the salsa and chip bar is awesome. I would recommend you trying the grilled onions with jalapeño peppers. Also the salsa is freshly made. For my meal I selected the chicken fajitas which... More
