Well this place serves up some good food. I choose fajitas tacos on flour tortillas with a side order of nachos. Meat was tender and had good flavor. The tortillas where delicious but a little to much cheese sauce on the nachos. Prices are a little pricey but I have to admit food is good and tasty.

I wanted to try something different from the AZ Mexican food I am used to. This was a great choice. The Pirata with steak was delicious and very filling. I also had the Al Pastor, the pork was very tender and the flavor was amazing. I added avocado to it, which added that much more flavor. I would love to... More

The food is on the higher price range for mexican food. The pirata is the main claim to fame beans,cheese, and fajita on a flour tortilla. Their fajitas have a nice home made Carne asada flavor. I would say it's worth the price for a pirata but you might want to look elsewhere for more affordable mexican food.

I have been to both of the palenque grill in Laredo. Both have excellent service and great tasting food. I highly recommend this place. The new one on San Bernardo is very classy while the one on the loop is traditional Mexican ambiance

Food is great, quality it great. It's got to be when even people from Mexico come to eat here, you would think they would be taking rocks to a mountain. They know they are good, to the point where you can easily spend casual dining prices, if not more, for fast food. There are smaller, not as fancy hole in... More

I just love this place. This is fast food at its best. I especially liked the condiment bar. It had many salsa to savor in addition to some great veggies. Awesome value. The service was great as well. What fast food restaurant comes to your table to ask if everything is good? This is the only one I have been... More

Coming from the east coast i HAD to try some fajitas from here. It was fast and delicious. I love the fresh chips and bar of all types of sauces. Not to mention the guacamole was amazing!

Food was good and fast. Be careful of the hot sauce! It was too hot for me! Loved the covered parking, that helps a lot in Laredo!
