The waitress (Maria) was very helpful and explained that they have a small buffet as well as menue items. I had the Fajita Salad with chicken. The best Fajita salad I have ever had. The chicken was moist and the vegetables plenty. Will visit again the next time we are in Bullhead City.

We visit this El Palacios several times each year. We have tried other restaurants on both sides of the river and being a retired USAF member that spent many years in Oklahoma and Texas and Mexican cuisine being my favorite food I feel that I am qualified to judge this business in comparison to others. If you want authentic Mexican... More

We were attracted to this Restaurant because of the exterior decor and eye appeal. It turns out to be a small chain operation. The food was only ok and served on room temperature plates. Last but not least the service was detached and almost off hand. Lack of floor management was evident. It is a shame that this excellent physical... More

I was with a group of 12 and they were willing to put us in a separate room and provide individual checks. For those in the group that were drinkers, they had margaritas, that were quite inexpensive, while I stuffed myself with complementary chips and salsa. We were there on a Tuesday and there was a taco special for $.99... More

My wife and I plus another couple dinned here on 10/18/16. The other couple is local but we are traveling from Texas. I mention that because South Texas offers so really great Mexican food and this dinner was right up there with some of our favorite places. We all had something different to eat and only heard good comments from... More

We had shrimp fajita's and seafood soup bowl (?) I'm not a fan but seems 2b a hit w/local's and bar area serves as a social watering hole. They have specials, TV's and a full bar. My other enjoyed the soup bowl but I tasted and was a little spicy for me. They serve complimentary chips w/hot & mild dip.... More

We love this place. The decor is all part of the fun. We always eat at the bar so we can chat with locals. This last trip, over Labor Day weekend, we ate exactly the same thing twice! Our favorite thing here is the bean dip, although this time it had almost no chili's in it, and we always ask... More

The quality of this food has dropped in the last couple of years. Drinks are still good but prices have increased. Not a repeat place to eat anymore
