Great meal with a good friend.
I could go to this restaurant 5 nights a week, order something different each night and every meal would be great. it's a great neighborhood spot.

Las Palomas is not a mexican
Las Palomas is not a mexican (tex-mex) restaurant that i thought it would be. It was excellent and with great staff,I will return....

Tried and True
Our group was visiting Austin from out of town. We were looking for classic Mexican fare and Las Palomas did not disappoint. We were all very pleased with the quality of the food, the attention and enthusiasm from the wait staff and the comfortable dining environment. So many of the newer generation Mexican eateries are a full frontal assault on the senses. By contrast, Las Palomas presented a wide variety of delicious, classic Mexican ( not Tex-Mex ) dishes that satisfied without overwhelming. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel at home. We all commented that it was "just what we wanted" and we "wouldn't have changed a thing". This family owned restaurant has been getting it just right for over 30+ years.

We had the Mother's Day luncheon and it was terrific. The paella was great. We took about 20% of it home and had it for lunch the next day. Every bit of it delicious. The flan is the best in Austin. We are trying to get Mariecarmen to make paella a regular item for Saturday evenings.
Service started ab it slow, but then turned into the usual great service.
A fine experience; as was Valentine's Day; and as it always is.

Fresh food on a great outdoor patio
Las Palomas sells super fresh Mexican food and great drinks, and they have a wonderful outdoor patio that is shaded. My friend loved her ceviche and thought it was the best she had ever had. I had a fajita salad and the chicken was spicy and delicious and the salad was cheesy. Their house margaritas are a tad limey (sour more than sweet) and refreshing in the Texas heat. I'd definitely eat here again the next time I'm in Austin.

Interior Mexican Food
We celebrated my birthday with my favorite margarita and a couple of chef selections from the menu. Everything was perfect. If you haven't tried it, the Chicken with Pecan Sauce is delectable. And you can't beat the garlic shrimp plate. What a beautiful dining room!

On previous visits, our servers were cheerful, friendly, and attentive. On this last occassion, our servier was sullen and inattentive. His attitude was like he had just lost a loved one.

Very good interior Mexican food
This place has been around for a very long time and consistently delivers very good interior Mexican food, distinct from Tex-Mex, in a pleasant environment for a reasonable price. Order the Las Palomas combination for a chance to sample a variety of culinary delights and spare yourself the trouble of making an otherwise difficult choice.

We eat out a lot and Las Palomas is a regular in our rotation. Great Mexican food and the best mole we've found anywhere. They are closed Sunday and Monday.

I've been coming to Las Palomas virtually since it opened. I just love the Las Palomas combination plate: A fabulous assortment of flavors all on one dish. It's very good every time, has great variety, and I don't even need to look at the menu. The kitchen was a little slower than usual on this occasion, but a 3-piece band kept us entertained, and a margarita and chilps and salsas held us until our meals arrived.

My wife and I have eaten at Las Palomas many times. The seafood is outstanding, especially the Veracruzana.

This is just a great local place -- high quality food, excellent margaritas and nice people. They do a nice job of adding lighter seafood and salad dishes to a more traditional Mexican menu. Our server was very polite when we returned the first basket of chips (which was stale) and brought us fresh hot ones quickly.
