La Palapa Grill & Cantina is committed to providing only the freshest and highest quality of Mexican cuisine in a distinctive hacienda decor setting.
Would NOT recommend. Staff was rude, food is gross, drinks are boring and not even fresh. Being a tequila bar I was disappointed is see them using margarita mix. Definitely a fail.
Good enchiladas, decent Chile rellanos. Has mariachi music at night.
The Agave Margaritas are not too shabby. :-)
Disappointed. We waited for 15 minutes. No one came to take our order so we left. =/
The salsa looked and tasted like it was from a can. Had the blancas enchiladas, nothing to rave about.
Best place for Mexican food in Ellicott city! The atmosphere is relaxed and romantic. It's not crowded at all and on Saturday nights they have a mariachi band that really adds to the ambiance.
Gilberto's specials are always a hit!
Awesome maragritas- same owners & menu as El Azteca in Clarksville or Pochanga in Ellicott City = DELICIOUS! Highly recommend.
Best nachos on earth. Wednesday it's a steal $5, you won't leave disappointed
Great Mexican food! Chicken nachos are the best in the business.
This is especially nice in the warmer months when the patio area is open and the kids can get fresh air and the noise they make isn't contained by walls.
Reminds me of Blockheads in New York City. The kicker is they have a DJ.
I'm going to fantasize about the chicken quesadilla for a long, long time. Make sure you get Jeff as your server...he's friendly, attentive, and fast. Couldn't have had a better experience.
White girl wed is no longer WTF!!!!!!!
Typical MarMex (Maryland-Mex). Nothing to write home about. Another place where if you don't know Authentic Mexican you'll love it
Try the chicken mole!
Best Mexican restaurant in the Ellicott City/Columbia area. My husband (a mole sauce self-proclaimed connaisseur) highly recommends the chicken mole here!
Lunch specials are served 11:30am-3pm and start at $8.25. Check the calendar on their website for deals like all you can eat tacos and free dessert on select nights.
Try to eat more than 13 Tacos!
More "Tex" than "Mex", but don't miss Gilberto's Specialties, which are all Baja inspired fresh seafood dishes and they do a great house margarita !
Free dessert thursdays
They have a solid selection of Jose Cuervo tequilas including the Family Reserve, and Don Julio 1942! Jeremiah Weed and Smirnoff flavors also great!
They have really soooo good food to eat there
White girl Wednesday!!!
Don't get stabbed
Cheap ass happy hour
Go on Sunday nights for $2.25 domestics, $2 rails, $3 jack Daniels, and $5 appetizers
The Chicken Mole & Asado De Puerco are my Favs on the menu, both are great! And the house Margarita's are good too.
Restaurant.com has 50% off up to $15 for this place. (use coupon code "meal" for even more savings). Great food here, too.
They have a decent tequila selection.
The Marisco Acapulco was to die for!
Go to La Palapa and skip the enchilada verdes. The steak fajita was the perfect color pink.
Wednesday nights is $2 nights including draft beer 22oz, Jack daniels , house wine, house sangrias and margaritas
