Great food, great prices!

This is my a great place for a quick dinner OR a leisurely meal. Standard American Mexican plates with all the fixings. The East side one even has a patio.

Everything about this place can be best described as run-of-the-mill. Nothing was bad, prices and service are pretty good, but that's about the best I can say. The decor is meh; I even recognized a painting I've seen as a mural at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. If you're in the area and Taqueria La Parilla isn't busy, it'd... More

I had an excellent dinner with a Corona, guacamole, chips and ensenda fish tacos all for only 23 doll and enjoyed every piece. Highly recommended for a casual dinner. Frendly server. Thanks!

I've tried most of the Mexican restaurants in Athens (there are many!) and I keep coming back to La Parilla. The original one on the West Side moved into a larger place and two more locations opened, so that shows that I'm not alone in my regard for this family-run restaurant. It's a great place for a business lunch when... More

I have been to La Parilla many times since its opening. The food has always been excellent and service exceptional. My favorite dish is the Steal a la Mexicana. Fajitas and tacos are top notch as well. Cheese dip with chips and salsa along with a cool beverage are a must.

Way over priced for a very mediocre tasting food. Salsa is nothing more than a watered down tomato puree. All 5 entrees ordered came with minimal amounts of meat and poorly seasoned. There are MUCH better places for Mexican food in Athens for a fraction of the price. My family and I will not be back. On a positive note,... More

Ate at Jefferson RD one. Staff is quick to help all through the meal. Had chilli relano but was a little cold maybe pre made. My wife loves them though. Fish tacos were good and colorful. Like other Mexican places free chips and salsa. Plenty of seating too.

This review is for the La Parilla, east side Athens, on Gaines School Road. I had fajitas: steak was good quality, but the toppings were skimpy -- a plate of mainly mexican rice, small portion of refried beans, very small amounts of tomato (low quality) and guacamole. Service was okay with one major exception - I got a to-go box... More
