Our waitress seemed very put out by our group of 9. She was not happy about serving us. She was slow to honor requests

The restaurant was not prepared for our party of 13, half the food was ice cold. We had few vegetarians and they messed up the order and had a hard time fixing it. We will not be going there again

We usually eat here at least 3 times a month. The food is good although chicken dishes are usually overcooked and can be dry. We enjoyed tamales, enchiladas, and chili rellenos. All were delicious. We split a pitcher of red Sangria. The noise level tends to get louder, especially with large parties present. But, we could still have a conversation.

This is a convenient lunch option at work. We were able to get in and out fairly quickly since it was not crowded. The server was nice. The food was ok.

Alejandra is an amazing server! Love the paper straws! Food is the best Mexican in howard county by far. Shrimp tacos and queso are my favorites! Ambiance and decor awesome. Clean bathrooms!

A group of friends from work and myself went there. We were meeting to see one of our colleagues who had moved to England and was visiting. We had a great time. One person said that that was the best Mexican restaurant she’d ever been to and she is Latina. The ambience was great we were outside it was not too hot not too cold service was excellent. We switched tables about two times and they were very patient with us. I will definitely be returning and would definitely recommend it to a friend.

We had a party of eight. The server was very nice and helpful. There were a few mistakes in the checks because of the number of people being divided into four checks. An empty glass of water was mistaken for a soft drink.

The food was tasty, the salsa was spiced just right, meals were hot and prepared well and the two non-Mexican food lovers enjoyed their hamburgers. Also, the Margaritas were very good.

There was a party going on in the next room that was filled with exuberant guests that made conversation at our table nearly impossible. A few of our guests made comments about not eating there again because of the noise volume.

We would recommend La Palapa Too to friends who enjoy Mexican food and are not disturbed by exuberant customers having fun.

We've been to this restaurant 5 or 6 times and we enjoy it everytime. The good service and food keeps us coming back. The noise level was higher than usual but that's because it was Valentine's Day, so there were more patrons than normal on a weeknight. It was great to see the place booming with patrons that night.

Waiter was slow, confused. Our orders were wrong and slow in coming out. Our checks were also incorrect several times even after being fixed

The table was too small for our party and the service was really slow. The birthday celebration was really loud. It scared our 7 month old grandson. We were a bit disappointed this time.

Great food and service. Never been to this place before but it’s quite close to home and will come again. Met a friend who came down from Baltimore and it wasn’t far for her either. Nice atmosphere and good food.
