We recently had visitors to Tucson and decided to show off one of our favorite local restaurants, so we met at La Parrilla Suiza. We hadn't been there for a couple of years, so we were looking forward to the evening; unfortunately we learned how much the place had gone downhill. I met our guests at the bar. The beer... More

If you want a change in the type of Mexican food you have been eating try this restaurant. The food is MEXICO CITY type which to me means not too hot and spicy and lots of fresh tortillas and cheese. They have an open kitchen where you can see them prepare your food, and you can see one individual who... More

The food at La Parrilla Suiza is flavorful, fresh, and well prepared. The interior is pleasant, but a focal point of the restaurant is the open air presentation area. I always like restaurant that has nothing to hide in the kitchen. I had a combo plate with enchiladas & tacos and it was very good. My wife had the chimichanga... More

Hubby and I go here often due to its proximity to our home and their great coupons (buy one get one free dinners) that are in the newspaper fliers almost weekly. Not our favorite but also not bad. I like the green salsa and he likes the red - so no fighting over the salsa bowl (which comes with three... More

For a visitor to Tucson picking a Mexican restaurant can be a challenge with the huge number of them to choose from. You can't go wrong by selecting La Parrilla Suiza located on busy E. Speedway Blvd. The food is excellent, service fast and friendly and very kid friendly. This is the real deal when it comes to authentic Mexican... More

Everytime we visit Tucson we just have to go to La Parrilla Suiza to satisfy our taste for "real" Mexican food. Love the side of beans, the enchiladas suiza and the cold beers. This place is popular with locals so there is usually a wait, but it's worth it!

I know now that I prefer heat and spicy/spicier flavor when I order Mexican shrimp dishes. I liked La Parrilla Suiza, but did not love it. There was just not enough heat/spice in the dish for me. I did appreciate the three different types of salsa that arrived for my date and I to snack on before we ordered.

Can't remember a time when family got together outside of holidays in Tucson, that one of those days wasn't spent at LA Parrilla Suiza! Delicious Mexican dishes, and the best enchiladas I've had outside the homemade scratch ones I grew up with in my hometown. Go, just go, and enjoy yourselves.

We have been going to this restaurant for 30 years and have never been disappointed. The menu has many grilled items. The fajitas are served in hot trays that are heated with coals from their grill. Generous portions and variety including meat, seafood and vegetarian items. Don't miss the fried ice cream dessert. If you want a margarita they have... More

I've been going to La Parrilla Suiza for years. And for years, it was my favorite Mexican restaurant in Tucson. The food and service were always top notch. And the emphasis on cheese in many dishes indicated a Mexico City-style cuisine, which was a nice change from the usual Sonoran style that is present in this area of the Southwest.... More
