They dropped the ball today

Taco Palenque seems to do a decent jobs most of the time, but today they missed the mark, big time. The fajitas were fatty and had gristle and were on the dry side, maybe over cooked. The tortillas were the worse tortillas I've ever had. They were not fully cooked, were hard and did not taste good. They appear to make them ahead of time and wrap them in foil and keep them near the grill or a warmer. The avocado was obviously from yesterday. It was black and tasted like the avocados were overripe and had a terrible flavor. The green sauce was also disgusting and wasn't cold, which means it's not being kept under proper refrigeration. The rice was decent, but the beans had way to much grease. It was floating on top of the beans. It was like throwing away $15 during lunch. The managers need to start managing and not stand by the doors staring at the cars driving by. There are no customers in the store, so he should focus on the staff. I could manage this store with my eyes closed. On a scale of 1 to 5 with five being the best, I give them a "1". If they had a "0" I give them a zero.

Friendly Staff

This is an average fast food Mexican place. The staff is friendly, and the drive thru is ran efficiently.


My husband and I decided to try out Taco Palenque since it was near our hotel. Plus, it was after 11pm on a Sunday night, so our choices were limited.


The chicken for our fajitas was very dry. The rice, beans, and pico were good. I also had a chicken quesadilla which was good as well.


I would probably visit again if I was after a late night snack.

My family and I love the food here, fajitas are soft and always cooked perfectly. The tortillas are also delicious. Restaurants always packed, so we never dine in. Always drive thru, there’s always a line, but it moves fast.
