We have been to Las Palapas more times than I can remember, going back to when they were only a 1/3 as big. This family run restaurant is the real deal, they love their employees, and they love food, and tequila.

I have been going to this restaurant for a few years now and I have never had a bad meal. It is well worth waiting for if they are busy. The margaritas are killer! Taco locos chicken are my go to each time. Endless chips and salsa. Their queso is great as well.

We have eaten here several times and have always found the food and service to be great. Chorizo Burrito, Papa Pollo, and excellent Carnitas tacos. We also appreciate the fact that we see the owners hustling with their staff too!

Las Palapas has amazing food! It is by far the best food in the area! They have phenomenal enchiladas, fajitas, burritos, etc... The atmosphere is always happy and upbeat. The staff always works hard and is very polite.

I love this place. the atmosphere is so upbeat. Great food, drinks and service. I like it much better than even going downtown to Mexican Village. They do a birthday 1st class too.

Very fresh Mexican food. Great guacamole, cilantro on side of most dishes and great drinks! Lunch specials are very reasonable and too large to eat in one sitting. The birthday song comes with a big surprise at the end!
