You never quite know whether a Mexican restaurant is "real" or not, but La Palapa is the real deal. The chicken pozole was excellent as was the carnitas, fajitas & ceviche. Experiment a little, if your not sure, ask for recommendations.

Noisy little Mexican restaurant on the small main drag of Los Osos offers a good selection, but nothing to make this a place of distinction. Abundant portions. Won't disappoint.
