My mom and I enjoyed a delicious and authentic Mexican dinner. I especially loved the carnitas and the grande margarita! Definitely stop by if you're in the area.

Every time we visit Palm Springs we look forward to El Marisol. The margaritas are delicious, and the beef burrito is a classic. They have lots to choose from and even offer gluten free items. Would definitely recommend!!

If this is the best Mexican food in Palm Springs then I should open a restaurant. The food was bland, not even cantina bland, just bland. The service was good, but there was nothing special about the place or the food. This is Southern California,...More

We really enjoyed the food here. It was more authentic than any of the restaurants we have ever eaten at here in Phoenix. We had the chile relleno and cheese enchiladas and both were excellent. Service was great, no complaints. We were pleasantly surprised!

The chips and salsa were good. The taco shells were definitely different than what we are used to. The server said we are used to eating Tex-Mex, not Mexican?

This place is good for Americanized Mexican food - the bar at this location is a comfy spot to hangout for drinks and appetizers and/or while waiting for a table - its a popular spot! The Margarita's are HUGE and the guacamole is really good.

Their south location on Palm Canyon does not serve breakfast. They do, however, have a second location that does just a mile or so away. Check our their location at El Mirasol Los Arboles on Indian Canyon at the intersection... More

I'm not sure about the gluten free options as I don't look for them when dining. They're menu is quite extensive so I'm sure you would find something that fit your needs.
