The chicken quesadillas have a lot meat in them and have a lot of flavor. The salsa and cheese dip are great. Very colorful restaurant with a distinct Mexican flair.

As part of our lunch time escapes, I looked forward to when the group wanted to go to Las Palmas Mexican Restaurant. The chips and salsa that are brought out, are addictive.

One should take care not to fill up on preliminary chips and salsa--which come free of charge, in abundance--for the entrees taste pretty good.
