“Eh...just okay”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

This place is hit or miss. I love their salsa and that's why I keep coming back. But the service and the food can be not so great sometimes. The servers always seem to be too busy to make it back to the table to refill drinks and chips and salsa. The food is usually pretty good, but not any better than most Mexican joints. It seems authentic, which I like. But the whole place, including the bathrooms could use some freshening.

This restaurant was about 1/4 mi from our hotel. Was highly recommended. Great food, great ambience, awesome margaritas...Las Palmas margaritas were so good...we got a pitcher between the two of us!

“Best Mex for 700 miles!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

I went there with buddies last month while stuck in St. Louis for a few days. The place looks like it belongs in east Los Angeles, not St. Louis. No bother, the food was great. I recommend the crane asada in any form: burrito, taco, plate. The service was pretty good too. I'd definitely return.

“Chihuahua done well”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We found this place because of a coupon but it was well worth it. The chicken quesadilla was huge and big enough to split. The queso cheese sauce while slightly liquidy is how Mexican cheese sauce should be. Not this orange Velveeta stuff that others serve. The salsa was flavorable and we will be going back for more.

“Taco Bell is better.”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

We ate here on a Thursday night when it wasn't too crowded. The server really struggled with drinks. Never brought one of the drinks and we had to ask multiple times for any soda refills.
We ordered a fajita, a cheese quesadilla and a chimichanga. The quesadilla was the best item, but c'mon it's a cheese quesadilla, who can't make one of those?! The chimi had very little filling with lots of tortilla. The filling had tiny bits of chicken and a lot of cheese; not many veggies at all. The beans were inedible. How do you mess up beans?
