“La Palapa, try it again.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2012

Just ordered carry out tonite and food was definitely improved, so much so that we called back to let them know how much we enjoyed our dinner. We have been ordering carry out since they opened and have to say the food was just ok. Tonite it was amazing. Everything tasted so fresh. Guacamole had texture and flavor. Tortilla chips tasted like they were recently fried.

Had the chile relleno dinner: Two large chile relleno with tasty beans and rice topped with cilantro, nice size lettuce salad with sour cream, good size portion, with grilled tortillas on the side for $6.99. Also had the combo chile relleno with tamale and taco that was very tasty and loaded with meat and filling for $7.99. Tamale masa was light and flavorful, not dry and tough like so many others I've had.

We are told they have a new chef, and if tonite was any indicator of better food, we will certainly be back more often.

More food than we could eat at very reasonable prices. Everything tasted exceptionally fresh.

There are a several tables for dine in customers, but we always carry out. Plain pipe racks, not alot of ambience.
