Good food and reasonable. Easy access to the hotel. Love their breakfast tacos, panchito, and the condiments in the little bar.

I had the chicken bowl. It was very tasty, and there is an "add on" bar where you can get onion, jalapenos, salsa, etc., to add to your meal. Palenque is a bit pricey though ... Overpriced for a "taco joint". I had a flan for dessert. It was good, but again, overpriced. I recommend the food, but not for... More

The food here is very good. I had the fajitas and they were very good and tender. I price for me was a little expensive for the type of food i ordered it was okay. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant is very clean

This was the first place we tried in Laredo on the recommendation of others. This is good authentic Mexican food. With a large family, it can get expensive but the food is definitely worth it.

It was not the the best Mexican food I've tasted, but it was tolerable and the price was OK. They have a good condiment bar and you can help yourself to the sauces, chips, etc.

My favorite place in Laredo snd the Rio Grande Valley. Everyone needs to try the pirata. Fajitas are to die for. And I love their salsa bar

Excellent fajitas and whole menu full of savory Mexican dishes to choose from at reasonable prices. Plus you can almost always find some type of daily special on the menu to choose from.

Tasty food for a semi-fast food restaurant The salsa bar is a nice extra. My burrito was huge and very good. Service was good as well

This place has great tex-mex food but more likely more Mexican authentic food, prices are not bad and the place is not fancy at all but clean all over including restrooms. Recommended when in Laredo and just for a short stay.
