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

What can I say? The service and food are always at the best quality! YUM YUM YUM! Try the chicken fajita quesadilla with some cheese dip on top... it's to die for!

I have found that the La Parilla on Gaines School Road has much better food than the one in Homewood Hills. Also, the restaurant is much nicer with a better atmosphere. Service is good, food is good for the Athens area.

This is a little embarrassing, but my family eats here twice a week at least. The staff know my kids by name and all the waiters and waitresses make a point of stopping by to say hi to them. Great family atmosphere and the food is always good and constant! Great fish tacos, fajitas, you name it you can't go... More
