Los Rios Mexican Restaurant

Palapas Bar and Grill

Palapas Bar and Grill

Located in Forsyth County, Palapas Bar and Grill prides itself for creating a space enriched with Mexican culture and cuisine. With a goal of spreading Mexican heritage to the Forsyth community, Oziel Rodriguez opened his restaurant on Browns Bridge Road in 2019 after many years on Buford Hwy. The restaurant in north Forsyth aims to continue to bring awareness of Mexican culture from every dish to the mere design of the chairs. 

Their most popular dish is the “Palapas Favorite,” however Palapas’ management and floor staff all recommend something different. The owner loves the “Taquitos Tradicionales,” while some of the wait staff prefer the mini tacos. Regardless, there is clearly something on the menu for everyone to enjoy.
