Great neighborhood joint

This is a great place near me. I like ordering dishes served in a molcajete. They are the only place in town that serves authentic cafe de olla. My husband loves it and is very particular about it and this is the real deal.

We arrived a couple minutes before their happy hour started. Our first beer was charged at regular price but a few minutes later the happy hour beer was a really decent price. The waitress who appeared to be an owner or family member was very pleasant and efficient. They are very proud of their guacamole but it was just plain.... More

La Parrilla is a very good choice for Mexican food in downtown LA. It is unpretentious with a nice atmosphere and excellent service. I highly recommend the enchiladas and the spare ribs but everything on the menu seems to be very good.

I really liked the nopales plate, which is actually hard to find in a lot of Mexican restaurants in SoCal, let alone being well-prepared. I also tried the more standard fare, but nothing else rose above average. The fresh tortillas are a plus.

The food and atmosphere is excellent. One of the best Mexican restaurants I have been to. The atmosphere is authentic and the inside of the restaurant is great. There is live music of high quality. Highly recommended.

The service was so slow and I was the only customer for most of my visit. The carne asada azteca was a little over cooked, but the flan was amazing. I'll try it again and order something different.

We dined here for lunch on Saturday, March 16, 2013 while visiting Law Schools and scoping out apartments in the neighborhood. The servers were very slow to wait on us and the time seemed eternal before our drinks came after the very spicy salsa. We were begging for any server who came by for water. While were were waiting for... More
