Have driven past many times but finally visited last evening and had one of the best Mexican dinners I've had in the Coachella Valley. Located in a newish, small strip mall, La Perlita may not have the ambiance of some of the traditional restaurants in the area, but the friendly welcome, pleasant staff and tasty entrees more than make up. Will definitely keep La Perlita on our "keeper" list in the future.

I had the shrimp in a chipolte cream sauce (house speciality), and my companion had the pork verde. We both really enjoyed our food. The wait staff were very pleasant and efficient - a family run operation and you can tell by the pride they took in all aspects of the restaurant. The place is bright and welcoming - a great place to dine!

We have dined in just about every Mexican food restaurant in the desert and La Perlita is the best! Friendly family staff, great food. Definitely worth the short drive to an out of the way location.

Looking for a solid restaurant for a late lunch. Lots of choices and used Tripadvisor to sort them out. A little off the beaten path out by the airport in a newer area we found La Perlita. Could not have been happier. Not fancy, not ostentatious, just really friendly with really good food. Portions were appropriate, prices were reasonable and the drinks were well made. As one reviewer put it, "Good Mexican Joint". Put it on your list, you will not be disappointed. They seem to enjoy having customers and make you feel welcome. By the way, far enough out that parking is a breeze. We shall return.
