Palenque Kitchen celebrates the flavors of regional Mexico right here in Southern California! Now in Orange County and Riverside.

Serving dinner and weekend brunch, Palenque presents the largest selection of tequila and mezcal in the Inland Empire with traditional Mexican dishes in a modern, inspired setting. Originally part of our sister club Mezcal when it opened in 2014, Palenque emerged in 2019 to fully realize the vision of Operator & President Miguel Baeza—who has more than 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry.

Executive Chef Rolando Rubalcava—formerly of Taco Maria and creator of Rojo’s Hot Chicken—puts his spin on Carne Asada, Carnitas, Chile Verde, Ceviche, Fish Tacos and more, utilizing the best local produce and quality meats to offer a sophisticated take on Mexican cuisine for every food lover. 

Join us soon for incredible craft cocktails and delicious dishes—perfect for date night, group dining, and full or partial restaurant buy-outs!
