La Palmera has been crafting authentic Mexican food since 1991. Building memories with our customers, serving quality authentic Mexican food, and providing excellent customer service are the focus of La Palmera.



Apart from our flavorful food, our bar has over 100 types of tequila for you to choose from. Last year, we even traveled to Casa Herradura in Tequila, Mexico to select a barrel of premium tequila for you: Herradura Double Barrel Reposado.



We invite you to visit us and join the La Palmera family, whether it be for brunch, lunch, happy hour, or dinner, and get a taste of the flavors of our state of Jalisco, Mexico.

I looked this restaurant up on Open Table and it had great reviews. It was a very nice casual atmosphere. The service was great and the food was good and great value. I am usually not a great fan of Mexican food but I would go back to this restaurant in a heartbeat.
