I've been occasionally coming to their restaurant(s) for almost years. When I popped in with my guy over this past weekend, we simply wanted a cocktail. Their complimentary chips are unique and really good - as is their sauce. I asked for the only-if-you-ask-for-it hotter sauce but I could not honestly tell that much difference. I wanted to try a...

I like this little place. Good, affordable Mexican food. Good ambiance and good drinks. Happy Hour is a little early 3pm to 5pm, so get here early. Prices are not bad. Not crazy about the Pita style chips but salsa is great. Manager even came over to introduce himself. Very personable.

I've been following La Paloma from location to location for probably 30 years now. The first time I dined with them, they were in a small storefront in Havelock near the Joyo Theater. It was a small, friendly place with great burritos and house-made chips and salsa unlike anything else in Lincoln. After a while, they moved down to the... More

This is a tastefully designed, open-concept, clean Mexican restaurant. The dining room has lots of space and a nice bar. The food and service were very good. We enjoyed good-sized servings of carnitas and fajitas served sizzling-hot. The food tasted very good and the service was great. The meals were fairly inexpensive for the quality and portions served.

We stopped in for a late night snack & a couple glasses of wine and the Grande Nachos were perfect. They give you a choice of flower or corn chips so we did 1/2 & 1/2... Very fresh, warm chips & generous amounts of cheese, guacamole & sour cream. With 2-glasses of wine the bill came to less than $21.... More

We went here for the first time because it was close to our home. We go back over and over because of the delicious and authentic Mexican cuisine. The service is always friendly and fast. Great place for family and friends.

Family recently visited on a Sunday for lunch. The "welcome" by the staff was incredible and they were great and patient with our kids. The service was perfect. Margaritas were huge and the food servings were even bigger. The flour chips and salsa for appetizer were great as well. Highly recommend La Paloma.

One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants! Food is always good, service is friendly, and the owners make a special effort to know the regulars. Also, one of the best places ever to get a margarita!
