Palomino's is located near the Rio district which close to shopping malls and hotels. We were staying at the Hotel Lucerna so we decided to eat here. There is ample parking in an underground lot and there is also an outdoor lounge and bar area. The main restaurant is elegant and traditional. There are many tables for private parties as well as not large groups. They offer a wide selections of meats, side dishes, salads, wines and desserts. There were two of us and we shared the Palomino Platter with included a very generous portion of Arrachera (the best in Sonora Steaks), two beef ribs, tripitas de leche (grilled cow utters) salad, tortillas, salsa, beans and two coyotes del pueblo for dessert. The service was fast and very attentive and we had three waiters waiting on us. The restaurant is clean and modern. I would highly recommend Palpmino's for a fantastic dinner.

This was a knock out steak. With all the side dishes it's difficult not to hurt your before you finish. Definitely a up beat restaurant so bring a good credit card.

We had an issue with the service as our waiter was slow and didn't pay much attention to us. I ordered the Wine menu and never got it so I didn't bother asking again. We ordered the Palomino's Plate for 2 and was great which consisted of Cabreria, Tripe and ribs accompanied with beans and tortillas and salad. It really does cost much as some people say.

I'll startby saying that the steaks were amazing, probably one of the best I ever had. Bug thumbs up! The reast of the food was good but not extraordinary. I wish they had better salsas.

We went there on Dec 26 and the place was packed. Long story short, the restaurant was not ready to serve so many people. Here are some lowlights:

- we were sitted on a table for 6 when we were a party of 8.
- we had to request the menus because they never ofered them to us.
- we had to actually walk to the server to remind him we had requested salt/pepper several times and he kept forgetting to bring it.
- tripitas de leche were delivered to our table when we finished our meal. The waitress came seceral time to the table giving excuses as of why they were late but failed to deliver them on time. We took them home and were delicious but again, that's not what we wanted. We wanted to have them at the restaurant as part of our meal.

Our recommendation for the owners would be to hire extra staff and review procedures for days when demand is high. Look at this as an investment to avoid compromising quality for quantity.

Altough the steaks were amazing unfortunately we were unable to have a good experience because the service was poor.

Great place to escape from the heat (temperature) of Hermosillo. But especially the mixed grill as suggested by the waiter was a real hit. Excellent meat (Hermosillo is famous for it's meat).

For Mexican standards I would not consider this a cheap restaurant. But it is well worth the money spend. Not to forget to mention the service. Excellent assist from the waiter. Very good approach to his clients. Top service for top food I would say!
