We had dinner on a Friday night at La Palapa Too. There was no wait. A guitarist was signing making for a pleasant environment. Our waiter came over in less than a minute and was very attentive all night. I had the Camarones Al Ajillo and it was excellent. It was a nice dinner

I'll start with the positive. The drinks and service were very good. The food however was tough to eat and I went to another place to get my fill after. I had the tacos and the ground beef more closely resembled sloppy joe meat. It all tastes frozen and not fresh. Go for happy hour not for dinner.

Visited on a recommendation from a coworker. Very nice ambiance, and they provide valet parking too. Good menu choices, something for everyone. M'Ritas were well crafted and good variety to choose from. Overall very good experience!!

Just finished a most excellent meal here, steak and shrimp (tonight's special, highly recommended). Ambience was just as enjoyable as the food (gentleman playing soft live music in the background). Definitely would come back again, don't miss it!

I enjoy this restaurant and my husband and I come often. My favorite dishes are the grilled chicken tortilla and the tortilla soup. The chicken is seasoned nicely and the tortilla has a nice crunchy texture to it. The lettuce and the pico de gallo are fresh. The soup has nice chunks of chicken in it with some guacamole, cheese...

11 of us went there to celebrate National Marguerita Day! All happy and in a good mood. Unfortunately they decided NOT to assign any wait staff to us. Instead they had other waiters and waitresses check on us as they had time between tables. Very bad idea. Nobody (wait staff) knew if drinks or appetizer orders had actually been placed.... More

Mexican Food at La Palapa Too is consistently excellent, Margarita's too! It's especially nice to sit outside there & eat under an umbrella when the weather's warm. My grandkids also enjoy going to La Palapa Too, they have quesadillas & tacos while we get to enjoy the different authentic specialties, too many to mention...My favorites are the ones with a...

Went there on a Saturday night w/wife and another couple. They had karaoke in the bar area. Service was fast and very friendly. Our waitress , Juana was so caring and attentive, and although she was working other tables, it was like she was only serving us. The highlight of the evening was the Super Mangorita for 2 that was... More

Been here many times. Food is not special. New smaller menu may help. Service usually fair. Decor is lovely. Tonight took 20 minutes for fajitas to come out. Why do I keep coming back--location, location, location. And my wife loves the margaritas.
