The “hidden jewel” of Westlake and West Austin’s only authentic Interior Mexican restaurant and bar.
Las Palomas’ menu spans multiple regions of Mexico, as well as the cultures which influenced Mexico’s cuisine, including Spanish, French, South American and Aztec tastes. Our signature Mole, Chile Relleno, Steak Chimichurri and seafood recipes reflect the delicious blend of multiple cultures, honed to perfection by Amelia Corona, our founder. Join us for a culinary trip across Mexico, enhanced by an accompanying glass of wine or fresh lime margarita.

We invite you to come in and taste our time-honored family recipes from throughout interior Mexico. Whether you choose our signature Chile Relleno, Mole Poblano, Seafood Veracruzano or Chipotle, or another item from our extensive menu, we are confident you will find them delicious. Salud!
Come in early or come in late (5pm – 10pm) for our phenomenal fajitas for two for just $20. Let Las Palomas fill you up with beef or chicken fajitas, queso, guacamole, rice, beans, pico de gallo, cheddar cheese, sour cream on corn or flour tortillas for two. Seal the meal off with each of your own sopapilla which is pastry dough, lightly fried and topped with honey and cinnamon. Add a scoop of icecream, you’ll be glad you did!
We live in an amazing city filled with options. One of those big list of choices covers what to do on a Saturday night. Bowling, kareoke and pinball might pique your curiosity. And then there’s movies, music and bats to consider as well. One thing you know for sure is that you’ve got to eat dinner, so let us help with that decision.

When Javier and Amelia opened Las Palomas in 1983, there were very few restaurants in the then-quiet town of Austin. But our booming metropolis now boasts 1000+ restaurants, with more opening – and closing – every day! Given the competition and the high rate of failure in the restaurant business, we are very grateful to continue to serve Austin and look forward to many more years!
A recent post in Culture Map details the most recent closings:

We’re taking a look back at the 13 biggest restaurant closures of 2016 so far.
