“I came for the puffy tacos”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

And i was dissapointed. The drive thru lane took 30 minutes to get me my order and it was wrong. The taco meat was still pink and the chicken was bearable. Also order queso and it was like cheap nacho cheese, ordered also 2 fajita tacos and they were average. The saving grace was the fresh squeezed lemonade and the chocolate cake.

“just arrived, and hungry.”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We just arrived in Texas, and went to the hotel hungry. The manager recommended Las Palapas. Not the swankyest place in town by any means. Chips an pecante for starters, fajitas for the wife and a burrito that looked like a log on the plate. The food was good tasting, and filling. Bottomless sweet tea, attentive wait staff. We went back to the room stuffed for under $20 bucks. That my friends is a score.

“Good prices, good food!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Although you need to check your food through the drive through, the value and taste is excellent. I'd recommend the safe bets to start off with: cheese enchilada plate, and the Palapas Special which is the same but also with 2oz of chicken or beef fajita meet included. Did I also mention that except for Monday or Sunday (store depending) they are 24/7? If you find that you're ok with how they do their beans and spices, there are plenty of other things such as the burritos that you'll like. We go there weekly!
