Felipe’s Palm Springs is closed for the summer.
The family who runs Felipe’s Palm Springs offers a full array of familiar Mexican restaurant standards, but they make the most of seafood. It’s named after co-owners Filipe Delatorre and Filipe Sanches. Felipe’s Palm Springs is a small restaurant with cozy, close-together tables and a sunny patio for al fresco dining. The waitstaff, who couldn’t be more helpful, serve meals with a sense of pride: this is their hometown food, and they are delighted when customers enjoy it.
To begin, their salsa fresca is made from scratch every 45 minutes. They believe first impressions matter.
Try the fish tacos, shrimp tacos, or enchiladas stuffed with shrimp. There are still more recognized items on the menu for those a little less adventurous, but try spicing up your go-to with one of the nine homemade sauces available to enjoy an old favorite with a twist. Ask your server; they’re likely a family member and know what sauce to match your dish with.
If you are not interested in seafood choose a beautiful carnitas plate, piled high with vividly seasoned shredded roast pork, along with a full array of beans, rice, guacamole, and pickled jalapenos.
They offer a kid’s menu that includes a cheeseburger and chicken nuggets.
Creative margaritas, including a hibiscus version topped with flower petals, are rimmed with salt plus a measure of pepper, adding extra excitement to the well-crafted libations.
The location is very close to the Palm Springs International Airport. Stop in before a flight or as you arrive in Palm Springs.
Open 8:30 am – 9 pm daily.
