This is a revisit, and it did not disappoint us. We had an outstanding server named Ashlynne, drinks were on time and "chips and salsa" we're always refilled. We ordered Chimichangas, a Monster Burritto, Bahamas Shrimp Tacos and a Carnita. Everyone was happy with their order. Like I said, this was a revisit, the food is always good and the... More

Food is always hot and fresh. We have been going there for years, I truly don't recall a bad experience. Highly recommended it for any occasion.

We tried this place on a whim one night. Found it online and drove 25+ mins to get there then waited a bit for our table. We were greated with WARM chips and our own personal salsa, double dip here i come!! Chips are never warm where we normally go. So that was a nice change. During my 2 visits... More

With tons of different tequilas,you can't go wrong here! Pretty good Mexican dishes. I enjoyed the taco salad, but there is plenty more to choose from. Always busy, even after renovations to make it larger. A little on the noisy side, with a tall industrial like ceiling. Just go hungry!

I love the chips and salsa they serve before you order. Ask for the special hot salsa not on the menu (it is very hot!). Food orders are quick. The dishes are what you would expect from a Mexican style restaurant. The margarita's are loaded so you will leave satisfied if you order one.

Quaint but nice, food is good, service was good, drinks are pretty good also. The place is always busy and the food and service are consistent. Great place for family dinner or to meet up with friends.

Las Palapas is a very busy Mexican restaurant. I have been there many times with family. The food is good and the margaritas are great. It is the place to go for birthday celebrations if you don't mind being the center of attention. Again, the margaritas are great, they come in many sizes, flavors and flights. The restaurant is very... More

This was a last night before our son left to go back to Taiwan dinner. It is one of his favorites. The food was good as always. Our good friend has major food allergies, and the chef was able to work with her needs. My main problem is they have changed the size of the basic margarita but not the... More
