Solid but a bit overpriced for what you get. I guess your paying extra for the atmosphere. The desserts are great. But the food is what you expect at a mexican restaurant here.

The Fajita-Chicken-Sausage platter for two was plentiful, hot off the grill and just great with the corn tortillas and a delightful Pina-Colada. Happy ambiance and really proud to recommend it.

Nothing special. It's the same thing that any other Mexican restaurant has to offer. Tortillas, cheese, tomatoes, cream, cheap meats...

Food was delicious, service was excellent. It was a little bit warm like maybe an AC was on the blink.

It was just the opposite my food was so burnt I couldn't hardly eat it I took one bite and told the waiter it was burnt and he took the plate and brought my check that was full price... I didn't...

This is part of the Palenque family of restaurant. Sit dow/ get served type of place. It is always packed, therefore loud. At night they have easy listening music. The food is really good. Anything you order in the menu will not disappoint!

I love their Mexican food and have never had anything I did not like. I bring all my guests to eat here. The aqua chili camarones are very spicy and very good, my favorite along with a MIchelada Cubano.....Refreshing!

Palenque Grill is packed with locals & it appears to be the place to be seen. However, the preparation of food here is very much low-country Mexico & something we don't see everyday in upper southern US. It's basic in both flavor & presentation.
