“Best Mexican food around!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

What can I say? The service and food are always at the best quality! YUM YUM YUM! Try the chicken fajita quesadilla with some cheese dip on top... it's to die for!

“East side La Parilla”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I have found that the La Parilla on Gaines School Road has much better food than the one in Homewood Hills. Also, the restaurant is much nicer with a better atmosphere. Service is good, food is good for the Athens area.

“Just like family! Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a little embarrassing, but my family eats here twice a week at least. The staff know my kids by name and all the waiters and waitresses make a point of stopping by to say hi to them. Great family atmosphere and the food is always good and constant! Great fish tacos, fajitas, you name it you can't go wrong!!

“Ok food - ok price”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

If you're looking for average, run of the mill Mexican food - this is your place. The food was decent, in my opinion. I did, however, really enjoy my sangria. Also, the servers just don't appear to be incredibly friendly. Maybe we were there on an off night - I am willing to try again!

“Mostly good, interesting food”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

The food was good, just not great. The service is very friendly but the noise level sometimes makes it difficult to understand what others are asking. It also makes it difficult for the server to hear your order. Even when we received the wrong appetizer, though, they were very gracious and quickly brought us what we ordered.
