Uptown’s Newest Tex-Mex Spot Is Inspired by Dallas’s Old-School Dining Heritage

Las Palmas’s dishes are reminiscent of decades past

There’s a new destination for Tex-Mex in Uptown, and it’s a little retro. Las Palmas softly opened last week, and per a press release, everything from the decor to the dishes is inspired by Dallas’s dining heritage from from the 1950s to the 1980s.

The restaurant has been in the works since last year from Sina Heidari and Pasha Heidari, the longtime Dallas dining family with outposts like Bowen House, Old Warsaw, and the Kennedy Room in their portfolio. Las Palmas is located in the home of ‘80s fav Baby Routh from Dallas legend Stephan Pyles, and that vibe carries through the new Tex-Mex spot’s stone interiors with deep red booths and iron chandeliers.

On the menu, classics like enchiladas, tacos, and combination plates are well-represented, alongside dishes like Texas Wagyu steak fajitas with bone marrow butter or crab avocado salad – and tortillas made on site on the comal.

Las Palmas is open at 2708 Routh Street from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. for lunch and dinner.
