“Excellent flavor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

My wife and I gave this place a try on 31 MAR.
The building was formerly a Chinese buffet, but the decor is 100% changed. The place looks fantastic. Once we were seated, our waitress took our drink and appetizer order. She had a super over-the-top perky personality, which apparently interfered with her ability to get the order right. The appetizers were missing jalapenos, which she specifically asked if we would like to have with the queso. She took our entree order, again asking if we would like jalapenos with our entrees. Yes, we did. But no, they did not.

Other than wanting to choke the giddy perkiness out of our waitress, and not getting the jalapenos that they were pushing, the meal was very good. The frijoles had a nice, almost smokey flavor - unlike the bean 'soup' that most places in the area ladle onto your plate. The meat in the burritos was well cooked and seasoned nicely. I'll just say, the food was great.

“A Mexican Restaurant With Lots of Atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Dined at La Parrilla Mexican Restaurant and the salsa was some of the best that I have tasted. I think it was an off night as the food was served cold and the cook forgot the onions that I had asked for to be served with my meal. The food would have been very good had it been hot and had there been less mistakes on my order. The waitress and her trainee were very sweet and tried to make it up by asking if I wanted another meal so that was very nice of her and the manager Juan. I might go back at a future time, but I wasn't really impressed especially with the cold food.

“Best Mexican restaurant in the upstate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

The quality of the food is the best I have ever had for any Mexican restaurant and our family has been to almost all of them in the upstate and midlands. The charro beans are like homemade. The taco loco with shredded chicken is amazing and the steak tacos are very tender. The management and staff treat us like family as we eat there at least 4 times a week when we are working. You have to try this place!!
