You will not find better tacos anywhere in Pittsburgh. They are authentic Mexican, so if you go there do not expect to find American toppings such as shredded cheese. Easily located right on Brookline Blvd. It doesn't get any better!!!

If your looking for incredible flavor and spice - Las Palmas if worth the drive! My last visit was with a friend who was just as excited about standing outside in the snow with a warm and delicious authentic taco as I was The flavors remind me of my favorite places back in Texas! Enjoy!

Where else can you get an amazing taco for $2.00 with all the trimmings? OK, you have to eat it standing outside (who can wait to take it home?) but the food is delicious. I get the chicken but my husband prefers the pork. A must stop when we visit Pittsburgh. And when you are done, step next door to Pitaland for dessert.

I'm originally from California and Mexican is in my blood. I grew up on authentic mexican cuisine and this is by far the best mexican food i've had since living back in PA. I wish there was there was a place to sit down..that's the only downside but the food is amazing! $2 tacos and $1.50 tamales are to die for! I recommend this place to anyone!

Las Palmas has the best tacos in Pittsburgh. Two soft corn tortillas are filled with your choice of carne asada, chorizo, barbacoa, pollo, carnitas, or potato poblano. Then you go to the salsa cart where you can top your tacos with pico de gallo, whole roasted jalapenos, cilantro, avocado crema, mild salsa, medium salsa, hot salsa, habanero salsa, lime wedges, chopped onion, diced tomato or fresh minced cilantro. As of this writing, tacos were $2.00 each. Mexican sodas can be bought inside the grocery.

This is a street taco stand. There is no seating, but it is well worth a visit.
