“Mediocrity Reigns”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

After reading other reviews, we decided this was another "must try" place. When wil we learn? Seated immediately by a host who did not know if any booths were open, he figured a dirty one was better than none. Very thin, warm chips and a salsa that had a pureed consistency arrived quickly. The salsa was cold and spicy, not anywhere near hot, perhaps with jalepeno heat. We ordered the Taco de Camaron and Carne Asada upon waiter's reccomendation, and also the "queso" dip. The cheese arrved quickly, with a congealed skin already forming on the top. The "cheese" was the loaf kind and jst that, not even a can of rotel! This quickly tured to a glue-like, gelatenous bowl of Elmers looking substance. Edible at best mixed with the salsa or lubrication. The shrimp tacos were a disappointing trio of what appeared store tortillas with 3 small shrimp in each. The menu states it came with mexican coleslaw (one did) and chipotle mayo (2 did), but this inconsistency made every bite different, but most lacking. The shrimp tasted frozen, and really underseasoned, overcooked and chewy. Most bites were tortilla in this entree. Served with a large timbale of spicy rice with bits of corn and carrots, each grain fluffy and warm,a good rice for this area. A small bowl of charo beans-hot, thick broth, undertones of bacon and onion with a hint of cumin rounded out this side, one of the high points of the meal. With fresh tortillas this could have been a rustic meal. The carne asada was a skirt steak served on a sizzler on a bed of onions and green peppers, smoking uncontrolably. The waiter had to assist us in fanning the smoke which immediately encased us like a choking fog. When the fog lifted, the steak was cooked perfectly to temperature, seasoned well and cooked with enough oil to make a great sauce with the help of lime squeezes(the shrimp benefited from lime also). A side plate of sour cream, standard pico, lettuce, refried beans and a tangy guacamole rounded this entree out. The quac was the only item on this plate that should be bothered with, as the others are not needed, as the steak and veggies have enough toflavor to carry their own wieght. This one hit it out of the park. We ordered flan for dessert on waiter's assurance it was made in house. It tasted like it was. Cold, creamy,eggy, sweet with a plate full of the caramel from cookng and a spun sugar design on top, A large dollop of whipped cream rounded out each delectable bite. The entire building on the inside appears to be concrete, floor included, which do nothing to baffle the sound. As it got closer to the dinner hour, the noise level increased by leaps and bounds, and due to a dry county, no hapy hour chit chat. I can imagine the noise level during peak hours with tequilla flowing. When the noise couldn't get worse, the live mariachi music started, signalling the time for us to depart. If you want a quiet dinner wih ambience, this is not the place. If you want tex-mex chain food, thi might be worth a visit.

“Yummy Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

I visited La Parrilla while visiting Dothan in March. The atmosphere was really cool. I enjoyed the live singing & the customer service. It took awhile for us to get seated & receive our food. Overall, I would definitely come again! Food is a little pricey & the portions are huge! The outdoor area is spacey, & I would recommend the Taquitos de Pollo. Also, get the guac!
