About the restaurant
Right in the midst of downtown Riverside, California, is Palenque Kitchen. It is said to have the best Mexican in downtown Riverside. The funky atmosphere features colored lighting, lounge areas and some Mexican art. The private dining area is also ideal to book your celebration or event. The hip and fun staff will help you choose from all the amazing dishes on offer.

Palenque Kitchen serves up authentic regional Mexican cuisine but with a modern twist. Start with one of handcrafted margaritas we offer or a beer if liquor is not your preference. Our Ceviche baja style is the perfect starter to share with the group. Fish tacos, carnitas and carne asada and El Patron our signature dish, are just feature some of the many amazing entree options. Top off your meal with our Palenque Cake or some authentic churros.

Food and staff were great. The music is loud and a few of the videos were a bit too racy for some of the younger kids in our group. Overall, yes we would come back.

About the restaurant
Kalaveras is a celebration rooted in great respect for the Mexican traditions of the Day of the Dead. We pay tribute to the great Mexican personalities in art, cinema, music, and history.

We have a deep passion for Mexican foods and drinks, which is reflected in our modern Mexican menu. We showcase many traditional Mexican dishes such as our mother watering Molcajete, our housemade salsas, and our delicious Enchiladas de Cameron. From tender barbacoa to roasted pork belly, our cooks are masters in the art of braising.

Not only do we offer great tasting Mexican dishes, but also carry over 100 different spirits handcrafted with the freshest ingredients and all natural purees, our specialty cocktails are like no other. Try our most popular Chamoyada Margarita to our deliciously refreshing Mezcal Mule, these drinks will show you what Kalaveras is all about.
