Quite a surprise. This restaurant was recommended by the motel we stayed in on North Padre Island. Next to a hardware store, this little place was a big surprise! Very austere atmosphere with fluorescent lights, etc. However, the food and drink was super duper. The hot sauces were very nice-a hot one and a little hotter one. the food was very tasty. The drinks-margarita and draft beer was served very cold and was very nice. Service was great. They had a sign up for Wednesday-happy hour all day long. Unfortunately it wasn't Wednesday. We paid a third of what a name brand restaurant go a few nights prior. Highly recommended.

While staying in North Padre for a few days, this suprisingly was the best meal that I had. Everything was good and the prices for food and drink are unbelievable. I highly recommend this unassuming mexican restaurant in a small strip center.

The food selection is plenty and there is lot of variety. Portion is size huge plenty to split with 2. Take away is relatively fast and you can take it the beach

Seven seas soup is full of seafood, shrimp cocktail is just like the Baja. Other diners enjoyed carne asada plate... side rice is tasty, nice homemade flour tortillas all at an excellent value, especially for the Island.

La Palma is one of the best mexican restaurants around,
and one of the cheapest priced ones.

I really suggest their Queso, and a couple of
Asada Chalupas. This is a cheap meal, and filling.
The chalupas are the most reasonable priced item
on the entire menu.

Also, depending on the location, there is either dollar
margarita and beer day on Tuesday or Wednesday.
