“The Best Tacos”
Review of El Parasol

El Parasol has the best tacos I've ever eaten, and that is saying a lot from a New Mexican! I love their shredded roast beef tacos, the chicken tacos are very good too. All their soups and quesadillas are excellent. The food is made to order,so there is a little bit of a wait time. The El Parasol in Espanola is just a little shack outside next to the main El Paragua restaurant, but there are picnic tables to sit. It is not the best area of town, so I wouldn't eat on the premises in the evening, but there is enough customer traffic that it is safe. There just tend to be panhandlers around.

We chanced upon this restaurant, what a gift! Casual and friendly. Gauc had a good bit of spice and the pasole was top notch. I confess, I have never eaten hominy but that was some great soup!

The traditional mexican food was flavorful and everything tasted different. Meaning that the taco did not taste like a burrito but in crisp shell. So many Mexican places serve you a mela and it all is the same except for the outer bits.

This place is GREAT! This is the LOCAL's fast food "chain" and definitely worth a visit for a quick lunch or breakfast. GREAT breakfast burrito, great tamales, and can't wait to get back to try other menu options.

If you don't have time to stop in to eat at El Paragua then grabbing something to go out here is the next best thing.
