“Yum! Yum! Yum!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This might be the best place to eat in Espanola. The bean and cheese burritos are so so so good. The food is great and not expensive. There's no indoor seating. You order at a little window. When your food is ready, you can eat it at a picnic table or take it back to your car.

Reviewed February 24, 2014

Excellent service and good north New Mexican food. The server offered some good recommendations and the daily special was appealing.

“Real Tacos, Baby!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Need a cheap treat? A fun little snack whilst on the road? I highly recommend El Parasol. Everything is tasty and freshly made, but the tacos are to die for. Real meat - and good meat, too - fresh ingredients. It's like what Taco Bell should be.

“best tacos of your life”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Yes, this is a food trailer in the parking lot of La Paragua. Yes, there will be a line. Yes, you'll have to wait (unless you call in an order ahead of time). But, OMG, these tacos are fantastic. Chicken with avocado is a sublime experience. When we visit the area, we have lunch here every day. Every single day. And sometimes we drive down from Taos to have lunch here. Don't miss it.
