Good place to watch sports. The food and drinks are good. Free bar food on days the seahawks are playing.

This is a family run restaurant. The interior of the restaurant is freshly painted but not particularly inviting. The food, however, is absolutely outstanding. The owners are kind and friendly. The tacos and burritos are my favorites. They have an outstanding variety. Everything I have eaten there has been great.

My son and his family live near Shelton and I always take them to La Palmas for truly legitimate Mexican food. Not only is their food tasty the servings are huge so be careful.

Authenic Mexican food in a tiny spot behind the main street on Shelton. Visited many times, never disappointed.

The place is very small but it has been remodeled and it is way more comfortable. Tacos are always a safe and fast way to go. They have some specials going. Their shrimp cocktail is mexican style and excellent too! The place is popular for take outs, I recommend the carnita tacos! Just give it a try!

They were closed for remodeling and have reopened again, and everyone I know is thankful. The food is good, the prices are fair, and you can't find anything better around.

I found a roach in my tacos. Very yummy if you like roaches on tacos :( I never went back. I know a lot of people like it but they should know about the conditions of this restaurant. They do not care about being graded by the BBB, says a lot.

Been coming here for years. Never disappointed. Great family run business, super prices and great food. Steamed pork burrito will satisfy energy the hungriest of appetites. Home made pico de gallo is the best.

I won't even talk about the food first, first I think u need to know how BOMB the green and red sauces are.... Now with that said, just about everything is amazing, and u better ask for some tripes or some cheek meat... That's where it's at.
