"This is a nice restaurant with friendly staff, and a great venue for a quiet date.  The food is really really good! and the price cannot be beat, especially for Wicker Park. My date and I ordered the steak and were not disappointed!  Awkward silences were worth it for the opportunity to eat this plate faster! Also, their drinks are really good!"  - Gavin P.

 

Some of the best food I have eaten in a very long time!
It was absolutely perfect, Normally you could use a little salt, salsa or sauce, but not with these dishes, they were perfect! We ordered the Borrego,  La Casa Borracha and the Cochinita pibil all excellent. For appetizers we had the Calabacita and Pastelito de Congrejo, they were very good. Everyone at our table said it was the best food they have eaten in years. The drinks and desserts were also superb! I cannot rave about this place enough A definite must try! I will return for more. - Cark D

 

Las Palmas was a last minute destination, but our party lucked out on a Saturday night!  For starters, excellent salsa and frozen mango margaritas.  The delicious salsa had a slight kick but this didn't mask the other flavors.  My entree, the mar y tierra was immensely enjoyable.  The steak, jumbo shrimp, sauteed spinach and sweet potato purée offered a balance of sweet and savory, and everything was cooked perfectly.  I also had a taste of my boyfriend's enchayotada - corn tortilla stuffed with veggies covered with queso cheese and it was a delectable vegetarian option.  The icing on the cake was live mariachi music, which started around 7:30.  Great food, and the lively atmosphere at Las Palma's sets the scene for a fun night - Jenny Y

Marcos Rivera

Owner

Marcos Rivera, Sr. began his career in the restaurant industry as a bus boy at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Chicago in 1976, where, in time, he was then promoted to server. He thoroughly enjoyed the business, and dreamt of owning his own restaurant someday. With much hard work and planning, that day came to be, in 1984, when he opened his first restaurant in Rogers Park, near Howard Street. He was inspired by how good food and good drinks could attract so many great people, and an empire was born.

In 1987, Don Marcos expanded into the suburbs with a new location in Glenview, followed by another in Evanston in 1989. Ten years later, the Las Palmas family of restaurants grew yet again, with additional locations in Highland Park and Buffalo Grove.

Despite having his hands full with all these suburban locations, Don Marcos found himself reminiscing about his first location in the city. He missed the city people and their passion for good food. The search was on, and in September of 2001, Don Marcos and his son Marcos, Jr. opened Las Palmas Chicago, at 1835 W. North Avenue.

Marcos, Sr. now enjoys running the restaurant side by side with his daughter Maria, and his son Ricardo. 30 years in the business, and he wouldn’t change a thing.
