Not too many establishments are pet friendly these days, but this one is. When the weather is good they also serve their outdoor tables under a large canopy, and we love to bring our friendly Chihuahua with us. He is a chic magnet with the staff and patrons. Great food, great margaritas and fun atmosphere.

Went on Saturday evening - restaurant nicely decorated and clean. Only about 20% tables occupied....increased to about 75% when we left (around 6:30pm). Burrito was good - but for $13 could have been better (yes, you do get free chips & salsa). Some dark meat chicken inside, which I don't care for. Tasted fine....but for that price could have gone...

This was just the place to go after a conference and having no time to share with my husband alone. So, we decided to go out to eat and found this cozy restaurant open after ten pm on a Saturday night. It was quiet and cozy. It has an outside area where we wanted to sit but it was chilly... More

Good food and service this evening. Atmosphere was nice for Mexican cuisine. Nice indoor and outdoor seating. My only complaint was $38 for a pitcher of (house) margaritas. Please give this review a helpful vote.

Food is always good. Great brunch items on Sunday. Nice outdoor seating in good weather. Service is friendly and usually quick. Sangria and margaritas are very good. Chicken dishes sometimes dry. They do better with steak. Nice selections of typical Tex-Mex and some very good entrees. The mole (need an accent over the "e") is my husband's favorite. This is... More

As an eater of Mexican and texmex foods, the food I had was pretty bad. Taco salad that was so poorly made and assembled that I almost didn't eat it. Lettuce uncut. Nothing appealing and service was pretty poor as well.

Food was ok, but the service was extremely slow! We had to ask for water several times and the service was so slow that one ordered two drinks at a time!

I took my family to La Palapa Too for dinner recently. The staff was friendly and seated us right away. Our waitress was so very nice. I have seldom had a more pleasant experience interacting with a waitress. I ordered the tamale / enchilada combo and it was really good. I usually get the tamale at Mexican restaurants. I was...

I have gone here a few times because it is so close to my house but stoped going because of how expensive it is for what you get. It is not extremely fancy but the food is priced as if it is. Granted, the food is good. (Not outstanding though)

This visit was very disappointing. The shrimp and crab quesadillas were unedible, fishy and foul smelling. Waiter never checked once we got our food so we couldn't let them know but the manager quickly removed the dish once he was informed that we were not happy. Other dishes at the table were mediocre at best.

Thank barymad
