Service was good. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Service was fast. The food? We both ordered the Combination #1 which consisted of beef taco, chicken enchilada, beans, and rice. Sigh. Very ordinary at best. What else can I say? The rice could have been tasty...instead of bland. The beans were mediocre. We were disappointed.More

In the middle of Ohio it is hard to find good Mexican food. The food here is not entirely authentic mexican but it is a really good take on northern mexican cuisine and then suited for mid westerners (who generally do not eat spicy food)....The sopapillas are amazing. They are a fluffy dough stuffed with meat, beans, and cheese (or however you order them). The value for the portion is also phenomenal. The owners are also fantastic people. They work hard and provide a clean dining experience and good service. There are places that are a bit more authentic Mexican but they don't have the sopapillas!More

Our first visit to Mount Vernon with our soon-to-be Kenyon freshman - happy to have found this good Mexican restaurant! We were immediately seated by a friendly young woman, given chips and salsa (both very good) and several menu suggestions. She said that sopapillas we’re...the most popular item, and know I see why! I always thought sopapillas were fried tortilla chips with cinnamon and sugar. These were definitely entrees: a light, flaky dough was filled with combinations of chicken, ground beef, refried beans and cheese, folded over and fried, then topped with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes. They were surprisingly light and not greasy. We’d definitely return to this delicious, family-owned restaurant.More

La Paloma provides a tasty meal at a reasonable price. We love the sopapillas; they come in four sizes to accommodate your appetite and price-point. The food is fresh and tasty. The staff is friendly, quick and courteous. My wife and I visited with our...6YO son. He is into Lunchables - so no cost for him. The wife and I both had regular-size sopapillas. She had water. I had Mountain Dew. Cost without tip was just over $22.More

This is a very cozy and clean family owned restaurant in downtown Mount Vernon. The food and atmosphere are very good as is the most important element- the food. My wife simply loves the chicken enchilada here.

The food there is very good and the staff is very personel. I have been going to La Paloma for 36 years. Try Ricks Tostado if you want a little heat.

Stopped in for a quick lunch right in the middle of downtown. Nice summary about the family owned restaurant on the table and their special recipes. I was offered a paper to read and the chicken taco was super fresh. I commented on the all...white meat chicken that was so moist and the waitress said it was cooked there every morning. The salsa and chips were great and she said everything was made there daily. The taco was delicious, fresh and huge and less than $3. They said they have all you can eat taco specials some nights for $8.More
