“Very good chicken mole and very good service in a clean, spacious restaurant..”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

We have eaten mole all over the southwest and even in the city where it was created, Puebla, Mexico, and my husband and I agreed that the mole he ordered at Las Palmitas was surprisingly good. It had just the right mix of spice and sweetness. I had a two-item combination plate; the chile relleno was made with a poblano chile, not spicy enough for my taste, but it was good, and the enchilada was good but nothing special. However, the rice and the refried beans were much better than on most combination plates.

The restaurant is in a commercial complex, which makes it seem a bit out of place. But once inside, you will find a very clean, inviting and open dining space with authentic food and good service.

“Good Food, Good Prices”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

This was a nice, clean Mexican restaurant. I had the combination plate but wished to change out an item, they were quick to agree. The whole experience was pleasant and enjoyable. This restaurant is only a couple of blocks from Embassy Suites which made it a favorite choice for us.

“Hard to find, but this good food is worth it”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

I had steak carnitas at Las Palmitas, and they were really great. The meat was marinated, sweet and juicy. Grilled perfectly -- nice char, but still very most. They know how to grill beef!

Rice was also quite good. Refried beans? Pretty much your standard fare.

The meat, though... The grilled beef was well worth it. The restaurant might not be easy to find, but the effort is well rewarded.

Also had sopapillas for desert. They were some of the puffiest (and not overly sweet) ones I've ever had. Bueno!

Restaurant was very clean (and quiet) when we were there.

Will be going back for sure.
