This is our favorite place for Mexican food in town! We go there almost weekly and are very rarely disappointed. Combos, nachos, ceviche, tortilla soup, specials - all delicious. Also the margaritas are excellent and not a cheap watered down version.

We visited this restaurant with a large group, so I decided to mark them up to 3 stars. The food wasn't too good, and the service was average at best. We probably won't return.

The food was good, the service was great. Get there early because when we left there was a waiting list, but it is well worth the wait

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!
