Because we are family owned and family run, we take pride in everything from the cooking to the cleaning and we treat our customers like family. We take pride in our ability to serve fine, authentic Mexican meals at the affordable prices our customers have come to expect from us. We are grateful for the warm welcome that this community has bestowed on us and in turn we are so happy to treat them as part of our extended family.
It all started with two brothers who had a dream, but barely enough money to pay the bills each month. Eli and Jorge opened El Palmar in 2003. Roughly translated, El Palmar means “your oasis”. We began with little more than a dream and a prayer. Between us, we had more than twenty years of experience working as employees in other restaurants so we had a good idea of how should be run. We decided to open our own restaurant for the opportunity to do what we love all in the best way.
The original “El Palmar” opened in a small take-out location with seating for only 37 diners. The two of us worked hard to create a menu from authentic family recipes using only the finest quality ingredients.
We soon saw that our customers loved our food and our tiny restaurant, so our brothers Nau, Jaime and Chuy decided to join us and contribute to our family business. The five of us worked together to establish a good reputation and by 2007, our popularity forced us to move to our current location. We can now seat 75 diners in addition to our continuing take-out orders and catering business.
We invite you to come eat with us and feel the warm welcoming of El Palmar and look forward to making our family “Oasis” your family oasis too!
