La Palma De Oro Knoxville Mexican Restaurant Review

The Palma De Oro Mexican restaurant is in Powell but most people still call it Knoxville. Look for it at the corner of Callahan Rd. and Clinton Hwy. It's on the front of the shopping center by the Baskin-Robbins before you get to Marshall's or Home Depot.

My family enjoyed the fast friendly service at La Palma De Oro Mexican restaurant. When the server welcomes you to the table he appears with a bowl of salsa, chips plus a smaller bowl of bean and cheese dip. Then he asks for your drink order. It's a nice touch when most Mexican restaurants in Knoxville only bring you salsa and chips.

We have eaten there several times. The service has always been top notch. English is not a problem. The servers speak it fluently with a medium accent. La Palma De Oro has a casual relaxed atmosphere. There is a bar, booths are on the other side of the restaurant and tables are in the middle. Dress is business casual to casual.

  By far, my favorite meal is the fajitas. These come in your choice of either beef or chicken. A guacamole salad, beans, sour cream, pico and 2 flour tortillas come with it. I always ask for an extra pack of tortillas. So far, we've never had to pay an upcharge for them. The favorite meal of my oldest daughter is  the enchiladas with rice. My younger daughter enjoys the taco salad. Both of these entrees looked and smelled good. The girls ate their meals without hesitation.

The cost for the 4 of us to eat lunch at La Palma De Oro was $33 plus tip. This included entrees and drinks. When my husband and I both ate fajitas for lunch the bill was about $16 plus tip.

I feel that the La Palma De Oro provides a good value for the money, excellent service and friendly staff. The next time we dine out we will certainly remember this Mexican restaurant in Powell.
