For years I have loved eating at El Palenque. The food is very good as is the service. I especially like #19 and also the fabulous chicken soup which is topped with large chunks of avocado.

What a nice change. The restaurant has been remodeled and it feels great. It used to feel like eating in someones garage with tired fabrics and bad decor. Now the food is the same but it feels worth eating at this establishment.

My husband and I went to El Palenque on a Friday evening, about 5:45, just beating the evening dinner crowd. We were seated promptly, and were served chips and a tasty salsa immediately, so we were happy and looking forward to a nice dinner after...More

I've been coming to El Palenque for a bowl of their amazing Chicken and Rice Soup topped with slices of avocado, chopped onion, tomato and cilantro and plenty of deliciously seasoned broth for the last 6 years! It's one of those large deep bowl servings...More
