Their tacos are much better than I expected. I little pricey for "fast food" tacos, but worth a trip.

They have great mexican tacos. From all of the Taco Palenques in Mcallen they have the best tortillas, other establishment's have the tortillas very thick. The place is not that nice or clean, but the tacos are worth it. The service, like all Taco Palenques is great!!

There really is no better place for the best tasting, just like grandma used to made, Mexican food. Everything's rich in flavor, even down to the beans. Every time I'm home to visit this is always the first place I stop at, and the last place before I leave. Fancy? Not in the slightest. Artistic/ trendy decor? Nope. The tastiest... More

My first visit here was not a memorable one. I ordered cheese enchiladas and was very disappointed. Next visit I had tacos and they were awesome. The service was a little hard to understand but she was patient with me

This is a go to choice when I haventer guests from out of town and for my own dining pleasure. The food is excellent, freshly prepared, and from some of the friendliest wait staffs around. One caution: they do use MSG in their soups and some other dishes. If you are sensitive to MSG, be certain to ask before ordering.

I have been at the restaurant at least three times in the last month--at two different locations. Each time I found the service very good, as was the quality of the food. Being a family-oriented place, it can get a little noisy at times. That , however, is to be expected given the number of children accompanying adult family members.... More

The best of Taco Palenque is that you can order breakfast tacos almost anytime of the day. Barbacoa Tacos and Potato and Chorizo are the best.

We went to this Taco Palenque the other night, and as usual, had a terrific meal. Their chips are fresh and homemade; the Pirata was outstanding, with homemade corn tortillas. I look forward to my trips to McAllen area and eating at Taco Palenque.
