“Good Fast Food”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

This is a chain of authentic New Mex fast food places. The food, nevertheless is quite tasty if inexpensive. It's a good place for the real thing at a very modest cost.

El Parasol has the best green chile breakfast burritos in town.
Quick service and delicious food! I have never been disappointed with their breakfast fare.

“Good Fast Food”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

the El Parasol is a New Mexico food fast food restaurant. We had been visiting the Los Alamos museums and wanted a quick meal between museums. We saw El Parasol tucked into a parking lot. You order at the counter and they call out when you food is ready. The food was slightly greasy, but we enjoyed it. Service is fast and the food is very reasonably priced.

“Good food, good location”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We like to get the vegetarian options and the few they have are quite good. The veggie burrito is good. It is filled with broccoli, cauliflower and carrots in addition to refried beans. We always add green chile and guacamole. Their guacamole has a little kick to it which is good. The restaurant is clean but can get noisy quickly even with a small amount of customers. This is one of our favorite spots for a quick bite to eat and is much better than big chain fast food.
