Wide variety on their menu. They are good at taking out carbs and not flavor. Loyal staff, many have been with them for years. Great margaritas, when diet is over that will be a stop for sure.

Walking the riverwalk and decided to stop here. We were given chips and salsa right off. The taste was different. Took a bit to get our order taken. I ordered the signature "Rogers" dish. Tasted like pieces of roast in flour tortilla. No mex flavor...More

Awesome Mexican food and great margaritas. Try the O 9er ! If it's a nice day, eat outside on the patio.

Since 1997, Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine has become well-known for offering much more than traditional "Tex-Mex" fare. Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.
