“OK Mexican food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

Average at best.

Food is OK, but there is nothing about this establishment that would make you want to go out of your way to get to return.

“Done eating here, el fin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

Directions:
Rte. 60/83 & Diamond Lake Road

My wife and I had dinner here and we both thought it was below average Mexican food. We found the food to be bland, boring, and was not even warm. We previously had several bad experiences at Las Palmas Naperville and we were hoping that Las Palmas Mundelein would be better.

Based on four bad experiences at Las Palmas we are done eating here. We have since found a great place for Mexican food called Tacos El Norte which has several locations in the Chicagoland area.

“Best Mexican I've had in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2011

Now ... I can't say I've tried all the Mexican places in the area (there are many). But of those I've tried, this is tops. Ingredients taste super fresh, which I can't say about most Mexican restaurants. I had a combo dinner. Portions were generous, taste was good, food was hot.

Our server was also good. Drawback was that it was a Saturday night, and there was an Elvis impersonator (!), so it was very noisy. It seems like it would be good for drinks or a larger party, but not for a quieter dinner with a date (at least not on Saturdays). Other than that, I can't say enough good things. Highly recommended.

Not real Mexican food! There are way better places to get authentic Mexican food in Mundelein!

“ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2011

Las Palmas is a mexican restraunt. They give u tortilla chips, but not very good. The value was horrible, $11 for a regular sized burrito.
