Make sure to order the Palenque Nachos with asada!!! Huge enough to share with 2 or 3 people! The steak was tender, chips loaded with cheese, lettuce, tomato, rice, beans, guacamole, sour cream and topped with jalapeño!

The food was delicious and the service was great! But note that they only have a beer and wine license, so the margaritas are made with wine, not tequila.

Service was decent and friendly. The food was ok but not spectacular. This restaurant is a favorite with my colleague so we all went here last week. The others were satisfied with their meals and although there was nothing wrong with my order, it was alright but not as outstanding as I was hoping for. Prices are about average to slightly high for the area

Ate there yesterday and, the Denver Omelette was huge with Potatoes. Had enough left over for Breakfast today. It was one of the best Denver Omelettes I have had in a long time. Wife had Nachos and had plenty to take home for later. The service is friendly and right on time if you need anything.
