Have been coming to Las Palmas for years. The food is excellent and the options keep getting better and better. The made to order guacamole is a must too! Fun festive atmosphere in front of house, atrium and outdoor patio options in back (weather permitting)....More

This is an unassuming place, so expect no Mexican kitsch decorations. The food is very good, but if your tastes run towards more traditional Mexican fare you might miss the usual standards on the menu - or at least find them significantly modernized. We did...More

I live in a land of very limited Mexican food, so I don't often get to see anything like the wonderful creations at Las Palmas. In one part of the restaurant, an employee was scooping out avocado to make fresh guacamole to order with all...More

There is no shortage of excellent hole-in-the-wall Mexican food in Chicago but for something more substantial and still casual Las Palmas is perfect. I visited in a group of 6, all ordering different things, and there was not one complaint. There are a variety of...More
