My husband and I ate at Palenque Restaurant last night. The food wasn't anything special, probably about average Tex-Mex fare. The service was about average too. The booths were comfortable with cute carved wood along the upper backs. If you sit along the bank of windows you look out over a lovely golf course with forested hills in the distance--very...

I have been here many times and always enjoy the food and the location. Sitting on the deck during the summer is the best! Good food and good staff.

The food is not bad, just run of the mill Mexican food,the one down side to this place is that is is inconstant.

This has got to be the WORST excuse for Mexican Food on the planet. I'm not exaggerating considering I've been around the planet and all over Mexico..not to mention I spent many years in Houston enjoying great Tex-Mex. I have never had such bland food slopped on a plate in a so-called Mexican restaurant in my life outside the time... More

Normally, you'd consider the steak, shredded beef, or chicken to be the preferred meat choices for your burrito, enchilada, or whatever. However, their ground beef is so good, and seasoned so well, that's my preferred meet of choice!

Pretty average Mexican fare. Chips are good but the salsa is thin and looks like it comes out of a can.

This restaurant was very good at one time but has dropped off my good food list. Their salsa this time was very watered down and tasted like it was tomato sauce poured straight out of a can with a couple bits of onion. There was no mexican flavor or spice zing at all. Horrible. When I asked for some more... More

Me and my family have been coming here 2 to 4 times a month for the past 10 years. Always great food and superb service. We really love Tony. Try the pollo con crema or the arroz con pollo both are always amazing. Enchiladas are pretty darn good as well

Usually Polenque's is reliable but today they were off. Soup came after dinner and could not be cancelled. If you order soup, insist it is delivered first. The chimicanga is best with shredded beef, but we forgot to request it, so they default with ground beef. Kinda unappetizing. We asked for soup to be taken off the bill but they... More
