Hole in the wall Mexican but good food and price. Chips and salsa was delicious and bottomless. Enchiladas Supremas was yummy but a little smaller then expected. We had $1 Dos Equis in frosty mugs. Place was empty Sun at 8pm.

We were surprised to find an authentic Mexican restaurant in Murphy. The restaurant is small and doesn't look like much from the outside. But the food was fresh and well prepared. We both thought it was some of the best Mexican food we have eaten this side of the border.

Had a nice meal on a Sunday evening when traveling through Murphy on our way to Asheville. The buffet was tempting but we weren't that hungry so we split an order of tasty chicken fajitas.

Reasonable prices and great food. We'll be back!

We only stayed in Murphy one night and I chose this restaurant, I wish we had gone somewhere else. It was nothing special and the place itself was quite run down. When we checked out a child that couldn't have been more than 8 years old was running the register.

I'm a little confused on the name. It's listed in most places as "Las Palmas." We ate here on our way back from Asheville, N.C. After searching GPS for a Mexican restaurant, we came across Las Palmas. It's a "little hole in the wall," but the food was some of the best we've ever had! The chips were fresh, crisp, and still a little warm. The salsa was very good - not too hot --, and they also served a roasted tomato salsa. The flavor of the roasted salsa was milder and not as strong as the regular salsa, but it was delicious.

My husband had the pork burrito and said it was "really good" (This means a lot!). I had tacos and beans. The food was served warm ("hot plates"), and all four in our party enjoyed what we ordered.

We will seek this place out if we are ever in the area again. I highly recommend this restaurant! (I am not sure if reviewer "John T" at at the same place we did or not. Our food was nothing like he experienced.)
