“Good food.”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

We stopped with the kids looking for a good Mexican meal. The restaurant is staffed with several people who appear to have grown up on Mexican food. We decided to skip the kids menu - we didn't even look at it - so the kids split adult entrees. My boys had tacos that they enjoyed. My daughter and I split a Pollo Maya and we would both order it again. My husband had an amazing meal that I can't even begin to describe except it came in a large "Game of Thrones" style goblet. The disappointment was in the chips and salsa. The salsa was thin and the chips tasted as if they came from a box. Skip the chips and salsa and save room for the meal!

“Authentic and Delicious”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

First it should be mentioned this restaurant has nothing to do with a chain of Las Palapas restaurants in Texas. This is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
HUGE menu with items typically found in a Mexican restaurant PLUS some unique specialties . Delightfully friendly and knowledgable servers, runners and bussers that make you feel welcome and attended to on every level.
Portions are enormous. Flavors abound. Nothing is processed......everything is made to order.
No doubt we will be back.....many times over. Maybe EVERY time we are in Bangor!
Muy bueno!
