If your looking for somewhat ok service, you won't find it here. I had to hunt up our waiter in order to get utensils, napkins, and refills on our drinks. We had to wait almost 30 minutes for our food and the place wasn't even packed with people. Dine here only if you have absolutely nothing else but time to kill.

I absolutely LOVE LaParilla. The food is delicious, the service is good and the margaritas are outstanding. My husband and I often sit in the bar area. We are able to enjoy a cocktial and order food as well. If you are looking for a reasonably priced Mexican restaurant - go to LaParilla!

La Parilla is our neighborhood restaurant. It serves solid and consistent Mexican food, with crisp and friendly service. We have eaten here since it opened about 4-5 years ago and we have never had a bad meal. I am partial to the chile rellenos with green sauce and my wife likes the diablo shrimp. The only complaint is that their margarita machine frequently breaks down, but this is a minor one since this is really a Corona or Dos Equis kind of place.

One cautionary note, and that is to be mindful of Yogi Berra's observation: "Nobody goes there anymore; its too crowded." La Parilla benefits from being one of the few restaurants on its side of town and it is almost always packed for both lunch and dinner. So you should try to get there for lunch before noon and dinner before 6:00 -- or you could just order take away and enjoy their great food at home!
