Great food, cold drinks and nice decor. The only thing is it is a bit noisy. Staff is very friendly and service was quick.

A lot of food. Good prices and good food. Service is mediocre young wait staff. The first time I went there we walked in at 8:45 and the hostess told use they could not seat us. But in there defense we called to speak to the manager he said turn around now and they would get us free appetizers.

We dined at Las Palapas on Friday evening, arriving early because we were told it is very popular/busy. The parking lot was nearly full when we arrived a little after 6pm, so I was worried about a long wait. The hostess took our name and said it would be 20 minutes, so we headed to the bar area. To our... More

They have the best Mexican in the area. They have never forgot one thing when ordering over the phone and picking it up for carry out, they are fast as well.

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. The Patron Margarita comes to the table in the old fashioned stainless steel shaker, two margaritas in there. We... More

Stopped by after a movie and tried the enchilada verdes and tacos Mexicanos plus a small Palapa margarita. We were seated quickly and given salsa and chips. The chips were fresh and the salsa more tomato than I like. We waited a long time and were not offered water or beverages. I finally flagged down another staff and asked who... More

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!
