We were travelling through Texas and wanted delicious Mexican food as it is rare to find in our home state of Maine. We found this place through Trip Advisor. What a great find. Prices were fair and the service was wonderful. I had the stuffed avocado. What a great surprise. It was an avocado stuffed with chicken fajita and cheeses... More

Great salsa..has a good bite to it. La Reyna is outstanding...a beef fajitas taco with chicken fajita quesadillas, but the "taco" is actually a lot of wonderful fajita meat rolled in a flour tortilla and smothered with chle con queso. Mmmmm. Margaritas are very good too!

My kids and I shop alot in PL. We often eat here. The place is clean and we get our food fast. The margaritas are great. Great chips and salsa. I order the lunch specials often. I always enjoy a fresh glass of limonada. I am getting hungry just thinking about this place! LoL!

The food is good but you will wait quite a while for your food to come. They are very busy all of the time so if your in a hurry don't go then wait Until you have the time to wait.

Traveling we like to try different restaurants- no chains. This was one of the best places that we have tried. We went early as we heard that it gets very busy. Not fancy- it was like a hole in the wall cafe with excellent food.

The chips were VERY greasy. The queso was above average. Service was poor and the place was not busy. The food was ok but was floating in grease. Maybe thats why it tasted ok.

Dinnertime found us in Port Lavaca looking for a place to eat. We saw the recommendations on TripAdvisor and decided to give La Parilla a try. We were not disappointed. The staff was very nice and took our order quickly. We did have to wait quite a while to get our food, but the food was worth waiting for! My... More

We arrived 10 minutes to closing and the employees were more than happy to serve us. All of our meals were prepared fresh and the staff were very friendly.

I've eaten there twice, both time close to closing time (10PM). The restaurant was empty once and nearly empty the second time. Since I had no other competing diners my service, etc was very good. I can't sat this would be the case if there were more customers.
