I had a great meal at this restaurant. I was there by myself, traveling on business. My waiter indulged my loquaciousness and came by often, stood there and chatted with me while I ate. The food was great. The beer was dark and cool like it should be. Generally a very nice respite for a weary business traveler who would... More

My favorite restaurant in Martinsville. I have to go every weekend I'm there. The food is excellent & the service is friendly. You get a large amount of food for the cheap prices. Alcohol specials almost daily, but cheap prices anyways.

We eat here a few times a month. Lunch mostly. We sometimes get the lunch special. Two can eat, with drink, for less than fifteen dollars. The wait staff are very nice, attentive, and go out of their way to please. The food is excellent. If we have Mexican food, this is the only place we go. The hot salsa... More

We enjoyed the Fajitas Special and Mexican beer very much. The food was very well prepared and the service friendly and accommodating. We will return.

We were traveling and ended up eating here on our way out. The food and service was very good. Such a nice find. We liked it so much we stopped for lunch on our return. We definitely recommend them.

I love the shrimp and rice dish with Guacamole is excellent. Salsa and chips are also one of my favorites. Prices are very reasonable and in my humble opinion one of the best Mexican food restaurant.

I saw all the five star reviews and decided to try it. Very disappointed. The salsa was tomato sauce with seasoning. Taco salad was soupy. Guacamole was bland. Servers were very nice tho. Two other Mexican restaurants in the area and I would try them as this one had nothing to offer.

This is standard Mexican fare but done very well. The restaurant is fast, the servers are pleasant, the food is good, and the prices are reasonable. It's the best Mexican food in Martinsville in my opinion.

Very tasty and authentic Mexican food on the corner of Commonwealth and Virginia. Excellent bar selections and terrific margaritas.

one of three Mexican restaurants in this small NASCAR town, El Parral is fairly average all the way around. It was Saturday and very busy. We were seated immediately and drinks came quickly. The servers were rushed, busily running drinks and food to the tables. Free chips and sub-standard salsa. The queso was OK. The menu is extensive and offers... More
