I enjoy this restaurant and my husband and I come often. My favorite dishes are the grilled chicken tortilla and the tortilla soup. The chicken is seasoned nicely and the tortilla has a nice crunchy texture to it. The lettuce and the pico de gallo are fresh. The soup has nice chunks of chicken in it with some guacamole, cheese...

11 of us went there to celebrate National Marguerita Day! All happy and in a good mood. Unfortunately they decided NOT to assign any wait staff to us. Instead they had other waiters and waitresses check on us as they had time between tables. Very bad idea. Nobody (wait staff) knew if drinks or appetizer orders had actually been placed.... More

Mexican Food at La Palapa Too is consistently excellent, Margarita's too! It's especially nice to sit outside there & eat under an umbrella when the weather's warm. My grandkids also enjoy going to La Palapa Too, they have quesadillas & tacos while we get to enjoy the different authentic specialties, too many to mention...My favorites are the ones with a...

Went there on a Saturday night w/wife and another couple. They had karaoke in the bar area. Service was fast and very friendly. Our waitress , Juana was so caring and attentive, and although she was working other tables, it was like she was only serving us. The highlight of the evening was the Super Mangorita for 2 that was... More

Been here many times. Food is not special. New smaller menu may help. Service usually fair. Decor is lovely. Tonight took 20 minutes for fajitas to come out. Why do I keep coming back--location, location, location. And my wife loves the margaritas.

A local favorite! Love the margaritas (favorite is the frozen Azul with salt). Very friendly place. The food is good and reasonably priced.

My daughter brought me to La Palapa Too for lunch today before we went for pedis. I'm pretty much a Mexican food freak, so I was happy to try a new place. I was impressed right away with the beautiful decor. They have done an amazing job transforming the strip mall space into a Mexican getaway. We were served quickly... More

Very nice interior, great wait staff (thank you Victor), and good food too. In good weather, their patio would be a nice place for dining. Nice bar area in this restaurant. The Chile Verde was so tender it could melt in your mouth! Complimentary chips and salsa were tasty. I will go back again and try some other dishes at... More

Not too many establishments are pet friendly these days, but this one is. When the weather is good they also serve their outdoor tables under a large canopy, and we love to bring our friendly Chihuahua with us. He is a chic magnet with the staff and patrons. Great food, great margaritas and fun atmosphere.
