Great location and the food is ok but not terrific. The fish tacos I had were a little overdone. The margaritas were weak and I did not like being peddled by vendors while eating as it is near the main Quinta avenida. Good ambiance but I probably should have had the shrimp al ajillo or coconut shrimp which my boys... More

This restaurant has a good ambience but we found the food to be smothered with too much cheese. The staff were nice but we would not personally eat here again

You want decent tex-mex and you're a bit leery of "exploring" what the town has to offer, this place is for you. Completely aimed at the tourist, the restaurant offers what American Mexican places offer at a rather high price. The food is acceptable and the service is good but there are many other places to go to get better... More

This place was great, food, service, atmosphere. We sat on the balcony over looking the busy 5th Avenue. The flank steak was cooked the way we asked, the music (band) was also good. If your passing by stop for dinner or one of their large margaritas.

Ten of us ate here and the Food and Service was very good and including the most fantastic fruit Daiquiri we have had since we have been in Mexico and all for around £20.00 per head. We had a mix of meals all were delicious although the fish in Orange sauce was very different it was nice. Take time out... More

Its nothing fancy, but the food is fine and its not badly priced. If you want something fancy try Casa del Aqua (we loved that place) but if its a low key meal, I'd go back to La Parrilla for sure

Sadly, we went to this place after enjoying a fantastic dinner in Cancun at the La Parilla there- hoping to experience the same thing. Um, wrong. This tourist trap is nowhere near the same. Food was meh... Service was really tough. Every single time our waiter came by, and we asked for anything at all, he rolled his eyes. When... More

Their old location is torn down. They moved to a new location about 4 or 5 blocks away. The food is always good to average. Our Margaritias were watered down and could not taste any liquor. Service was good. We sat in the second floor and looked over the new large very nice shopping mall. I/we agree with another reviewer... More

Recommended to us by the locals, this was NOT a disappointment! Authentic Mexican cuisine at an affordable price with LIVE entertainment from a Mariachi band! Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for good eats!

We were walking on 5th ave when a tour guide (Miguel) cornered us wanting to know what we wanted to do attraction wise.
