Though picturesque beaches provide the most scenic reminder that Mexico abuts the ocean, Mexican-style seafood provides the tastiest. Bahia Mexican Restaurant specializes in the latter, which diners can sample by ordering a piping-hot mixed grill for two that combines shrimp, lobster, fish fillets, scallops, and octopus. However, the eatery’s kitchen staff also concocts Mexican staples, such as sizzling fajitas, tacos stuffed with succulent cuts of meat, and piquant chilies rellenos. They also sling refreshing margaritas, which slosh around in goblets rimmed with your choice of salt or pulverized diamonds.

After selling their previous venture, Francisco and Carmina Figueroa embarked on a new culinary adventure by building a re-creation of a stunning Mexican hacienda. Inside, guests chow down on familiar plates of charbroiled carne asada or tacos stuffed with flaky tilapia, or they dine on more traditional dishes such as a rich, flavorful pozole stew or a carnitas-stuffed torta. Diners can sip glasses of sweet horchata, Mexican cola, or fruit-flavored margaritas as they share plates of sizzling steak fajitas.

Francisco and Carmina take great pride in the restaurant’s decor and atmosphere: it teems with bright-yellow and rusty-orange walls, handmade Mexican glassware, Oaxacan ceramic light fixtures, and a glowing portal that leads straight to Puerto Vallarta.

Brightly painted walls, vivid paintings of Mexican life, and flavorful margaritas lend Las Palmas' numerous locations a relaxed, distinctly "fiesta" vibe. As guests slowly unwind with friends, family, or Twister champions over ice-cold Mexican beers and cocktails, the chefs prepare fajitas, enchiladas, and tacos alongside plates of charbroiled meats and seafood. They also whip up vegetarian-friendly options, such as the signature guacamole and enchiladas banana, which they stuff with fried bananas and smother in mole sauce and melted cheese.

Owners Connie and John Tyrrell channeled their love of Mexican culture into Burrito Grande, a hub of Mexican flavors woven from seasonings and sauces mostly prepared in-house. House specialties fill warm tortilla pillows with fresh tilapia, shrimp, or pork embellished with diverse ingredients such as mango salsa and pineapple. Tacos and fajitas fill up on proteins such as chorizo sausage and juicy steak, and build-your-own burritos make for artfully stuffed meals without the papery aftertaste of piñatas.
