The Restaurant

Since 1978, Armando Palacios’ long-time eatery—fashioned after 1920s Mexico City—consistently is packed with friends, regulars, celebrities and local socialites who love the famous fresh-lime juice margaritas, delicious queso flameado and signature fajitas.

Designed by Armando and his wife, Cinda Palacios, the restaurant is decorated with beautiful antique mirrors, an intricate sunburst latticework ceiling and rich red draperies offset by crisp, white table linens. The restaurant also houses a collection of authentic Mexican pottery and cookware showcased in dark, custom wood cabinets. The warm décor and lighting perfectly set the mood for multisensory culinary excellence.

From guacamole to quesadillas, ceviche to chipotle crab cakes, ARMANDOS offers delicious appetizers to entice your taste buds. The entrée list features a grand assortment of sumptuous enchiladas, from the rich lobster enchiladas and the savory spinach enchiladas to the plentiful rib-eye enchiladas. The authentic tacos al carbon, carne guisada and fajita choices of shrimp, chicken or beef are always popular. While the elegant seafood dishes, such as Chilean sea bass and the grilled fresh red snapper are perfect to pair with a buttery Chardonnay from our diverse wine list. To end the meal, ARMANDOS offers classic Mexican delights, such as sopapillas, tres leches and fun twists like the sumptuous chocolate banana pastry.
