While shopping, we stopped into this place for some lunch. We were seated promptly and the servers were friendly as well as helpful with menu selections. The restaurant appeared clean in spite of it being dated in its decor. I ordered the carnitas ($13); they were on the dry site and lacked flavor. The meat came with three flour or... More

The owner was looking at my Ferrari when he invited me in to eat. I'm glad he did because the food was very good and not as greasy as many of the Mexican Restos here in town.

La Parrilla has delicious camarones a la diabla and a molcajete to dye for. Love coming to this place with family or friends.

My wife and I went here for dinner and both got the La Parrilla Special , it was delicious ... Sure would like to know how they get the pork chop to have such a zing to it ... The chicken and Asada were very good also ... This meal is one of our favorite and we took plenty home... More

Like most mexican-style restaurants, chips are supplied when you're seated. Here, we got not only salsa for the chips but a bowl of very delicious bean dip: a nice extra touch. The menu provides a variety of scrumptious looking options. The place is attractive, nice and clean, located in a strip mall. I ordered a chile relleno (which I often... More

the restaurant is kind of on the small side. Can't handle big parties, They have one table to handle a party of 8-10. the rest are booths for parties of 4 or the bar area. The food is very authentic but a little on the pricey side.the service was ok.

Not fancy, but great food and service, lots of chips warm and fresh. All is cooked fresh, gives you more time to eat more chips. BUD CARTER

I don't know how authentic La Parilla is. I don't care. I love the chips and refritos they put down when you sit at your booth or table. When I worked in Modesto I used to eat here for lunch every other month. The reason? The warm bean dip and hot chips. The chunky salsa is also very good. I... More

The last couple times we went here the service was very poor the waitress got our order wrong both times we visited ... This used to be our favorite place to go till they opened up a new one on McHenry Ave. in Modesto the service seamed like it went to that place , cause it definitely wasn't here anymore... More
