Mexican Restaurants in Greater Palm Springs

From small taquerias and taco shops to open-air terrazas with views of mountaintops, foodies will discover dozens of authentic Mexican restaurants in Greater Palm Springs. Fajitas sizzle. Tortillas fry. Margaritas flow. And the recipes? Many local eateries serve up family favorites that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Start with chips and a side of Grandma Fajardo’s Guacamole at Las Casuelas Terraza in downtown Palm Springs. The outdoor patio features live music and dancing, making every evening here a festive one. Sip a signature margarita (by the pitcher or glass) at La Quinta Resort & Club’s Adobe Grill, where award-winning tamales and chicken drenched in house-made mole transport your taste buds to Oaxaca, Mexico. Or celebrate happy hour over nachos and papas bravas at Rio Azul Mexican Bar & Grill.
