I appreciate coming here for the flautas. Tasty and fast food. Service is fine. This is not particularly great food but it much better than some. I am not always in search of the best, sometimes preferring a casual environment with good food. You get that here.

We revisited this place over the weekend and we were really impressed at the selection of the breakfast tacos on the menu. I had a taco with "ranchero "style country sausage with beans and it was spot on . It as just spicy enough to be left alone without any salsa added to it . I also had another taco... More

When I think of caldo, this place came to my mind. I was a bit under the weather, and I remember mom making her great caldo or chicken soup to heal the body. Their caldo was perfect, served with plenty of chicken and served hot. The corn tortillas were made fresh and tasted great. My server was friendly and courteous;... More

Maaaaaaan!!! Great little Mexican spot in San Antonio. The food was AMAZING!!! Even down to the chips and salsa. We had queso as well. iKept it simple with the chicken tacos, but they were excellent. Ans guess what?! It's super inexpensive. Great place to go if dining on a budget. The waitress was phenomenal as well.

Good morning! It was time to fuel up and head out. Las Palapas hit the spot perfectly. The service was good and the food was just right, not to greasy and not to healthy. Another good day was in the making. Thank you Las Palapas.

I've been going to this Las Palapas for 16 years. Compared to other Mexican restaraunts and other Las Palapas restaraunts, this is BY FAR the BEST Mexican restaraunt in San Antonio! Great family friendly wait staff and managers/owner, great prices, and authentic Mexican food. Give it a try, you won't be sorry. LP: Evers/410

We dined at the Las Palapas in Northwest San Antonio on Tezel Road, but have also dined at the NW Loop 410 location. Las Palapas came to San Antonio in 1981 under the direction of Ron Acosta, and is a local favorite. Local dishes, served up in an appealing manner. You can't go wrong at breakfast, and the chicken soup... More

On a Saturday evening went to this Las Palapas site near Evers Road. The front area staff were having a good time and talking to one another. I waited for several minutes and then proceeded to seat myself. The front lady in charge came after me to note that I should wait to be seated. I inquired about how long... More

Food is great! Best chilaquile taco ever! The brown salsa is the best. Love the food hate the musty smell. Just go through the drive thru.
