As they say, come for the drinks, stay for the food. Owners describe the restaurant as a throwback to Dallas' great 1980s Tex-Mex era when the fajita platters were sizzling, the tortilleria handmade tortillas in the middle of the restaurant for all to see and the combo plates came with more food than any reasonable person could eat in one sitting.
While the dishes are styled around traditional Tex-Mex offerings, the chef has modernized many of the ingredients with delicious results. Wagyu Steak Fajitas, Brisket Tacos and Queso Blanco constantly duke it out for the most popular menu item and the sopapilla cheesecake might be the best hybrid dessert ever invented.
True Tex-Mex traditionalists gravitate towards the picadillo Chimichanga topped with their signature queso, the chicken tinga puffy tacos and overstuffed Chile Relleno.
If it is a nice, sunny day enjoy your guac and margs on one of two patios. If the weather is not so pleasant bring the fun inside and sip alongside vintage film posters in the El Hollywood Room. No matter where you sit, next time you are in Uptown stop by Las Palmos, raise a salted (or unsalted) glass and help us cheer our latest outlet on the Margarita Mile.
