we have eaten here many times while visiting Yuma, last time service was very slow .. and that was unusual ... crowd ... for sure... but it was worth the wait. I think they must have been short of help that day.... we will go back again ... for sure

They sold the property so that the City could re-develop 16th Street, and that is sad, because Las Palapas Number 1 offered really ggod food at an affordable price.

The shrimp tacos are breaded perfectly, same with The fish tacos. Their fresh salsa bar is amazing. They serve beer. What more do you want, except more. And you will be back time and time again, I guarantee that.

Management please check your establishment!!!! The young gal at the cash was dearly holding on to her mop or broom as she took my order... Can't let it go for some reason! It also wouldn't hurt to give a customer a welcoming smile. The condiments bar had food scattered all over the counter, and desperately needed some cleaning up. And... More
