Very fresh Mexican food. Great guacamole, cilantro on side of most dishes and great drinks! Lunch specials are very reasonable and too large to eat in one sitting. The birthday song comes with a big surprise at the end!

Stopped in for lunch and was happy I did. Ordered steak and shrimp. It came out covered in great tasting vegtables. Shrimp can be over cooked so easily but mine was nice and tender. My only negative is I hate to see nice Mexican restaurants serve mass produced soft flour tortillas...they taste so much better when they offer fresh made.... More

We eat at Las Palapas frequently. Great food/ variety. Usually have a group of 8 to 10. There is a room for small groups in the back " the wine room" Family friendly, good service.

Repeat visitor. Delicious food. Unlimited chips. Lots of choices. I like the arroz con pollo. Portions are big. The margaritas here are potent. Great place to eat.

It's always a pleasure dining at this restaurant. Do not expect the noise level to be just above a whisper. It's much louder than that, but it was fine to me for the time frame i was there. I ordered the Fresh Guacamole, which was one of my favorites, the Monster Burrito (big enough to feed 2+ people and an... More

I prefer melted Muenster cheese on a appropriate entrees instead of a cheese sauce. I love Mexican food but would not return. Price was okay. Service was average.

If I want good Mexican food in Livonia, this is my go-to! They are family friendly and always make things fun for my kids such as putting huge hats on their heads and giving them fried ice cream! If you want a stiff margarita, this is your place!

We love the fajitas as they come with grilled zucchini and summer squash. Very good drinks and tacos as well. This is a all around good place for tex-mex. It does get loud due to the design of the interior though.
