I am an avid lover of Mexican food and this place just didn't fit the bill for me. The food was mediocre at best, the customer service was worse, our party of 3 had to pass our drinks around until each of us had our own as our waitress just sit them wherever and they were all the same color,...

We have yet to order something that we didn't like. Service is always fast and ordering to go has been superb.

Chips and salsa on the table. Cheese sauce spiced just right. The el palomar burrito and the fajita texanas were great choices. Service was fast and staff was very friendly. Very reasonably priced. Very clean and modern.

We unfortunately don't get Mexican food a lot anymore due to where we live, so it was nice to be able to eat some good stuff while we were in town. The staff was very nice and the foot was authentic Mexican-American. I'd eat here again, no problem.

We go there 1 or twice a month. Friendly staff and good text Mex. My husband loves their grilled fish with Pico de Gallo while I eat a variety of entries. Very reasonable prices.

We stopped in this strip center late on a Sunday with the intent of going to a different restaurant, but saw El Palomar and decided to check it out (as you go in, it’s far to the left of Wal-Mart). We both had burritos. The serving size was quite generous, so we both thought it was a good value for... More

This is a strip-shopping center restaurant, but they really make the extra effort. The chips are good, the food is quality and the service is prompt.

we were in Circleville for 10 days..we tried this restaurant the last day we were there...the service was very unfriendly...came to the conclusion that the mgr. and waitress was arguing.....our chips were overfried..salsa seemed to be out of a bottle (not homemade)...our food was bland...although as we looked around the other customers seem to be enjoying their meals...maybe we ordered...
