This is a very cozy and clean family owned restaurant in downtown Mount Vernon. The food and atmosphere are very good as is the most important element- the food. My wife simply loves the chicken enchilada here.

The food there is very good and the staff is very personel. I have been going to La Paloma for 36 years. Try Ricks Tostado if you want a little heat.

Stopped in for a quick lunch right in the middle of downtown. Nice summary about the family owned restaurant on the table and their special recipes. I was offered a paper to read and the chicken taco was super fresh. I commented on the all white meat chicken that was so moist and the waitress said it was cooked there... More

I used to eat here weekly, but I moved 7+ hours away and I miss my Sopapillas and nachos soooooo much!!!!! Definitely try the beef and cheese Sopapilla with tons of salsa. (Sour cream too). My husband loves the smothered burritos, which are really spicy. The desserts are phenomenal with ice cream (raspberry or cheesecake Sopapilla!) we try to go... More

This family owned restaurant has some of the best Mexican food! They are famous for their sopapillas... They have a nice selection of entrees for vegetarians too. Great food, super service and friendly atmosphere.

Homemade recipes passed down through several generations now and the family who runs this is always kind and friendly. We enjoyed the warm cozy setting. The nachos are great and I love the homemade salsa. You won't find a menu like theirs anywhere else.

This is by far the best Mexican food in the area. Their corn cheese and onions enchiladas are awesome. The sopapillas are a huge favorite of my family. Try the Rick's Tostada - just spicy hot enough to be very enjoyable. The cheese nachos are made to perfection. The tacos are stacked full...no skimping. You get plenty of food, and... More

Very small and everyone raves about the other Mexican Restaurant but this one is okay. Very small, limited menu(some of the foods I have never heard of and I am from Texas) but the place was clean, comfortable and quick. The service was excellent. I had the Seafood Sopapilla which is basically imitation crab and shrimp with cheese wrapped up... More

I ordered a cheese enchilada here, and it was so bad that I did something I have never done before - I literally sat on my hands to prevent myself from trying "just one more bite." Not only was my dish horrible, but the salsa comes in squeeze bottles and is definitely not homemade. To her credit, our waiter realized... More
