We went there for a burrito (we had the breakfast burrito, but everything looked pretty yummy...) and were amazed by the homemade hot sauce, soooooooo good!!!! (a family recipe). I will DEFINITELY return when passing by Santa-Cruz!

On our way back, we popped into Las Palmas and it was quiet - around 7ishpm on a Friday evening. You sometimes second guess when you don't see a crowd... especially in an area like that. Everyone on Yelp was... More

We had a quick bite to eat here. It was good food but not great. Home made authentic Mexican food! would go again if I was in the area. There maybe other Mexican places that are better, not sure.

Las Palmas Taco Bar has amazing breakfast burritos! Both my husband and my burrito were authentic and a good value. The food was the perfect remedy for the extra lemon drop I had the night before!! Yummmm!

This is the closest place to eat to our hotel. My wife disappeared for a few minutes and came back with burrito's. She brought me a tongue one, as I like the taste and texture. It was pretty good. So stop by and grab a bite if it is close by.

This place doesn't look like much but the food is great here. Staff is friendly and we could eat outside with the dog.
