If you want truly authentic Mexican food, La Parrilla is it. This restaurant is like stepping into Mexico itself. The food is delicious, the decor is classic Mexico. It's not Cal-Mex, so if you're looking for that, go to a chain restaurant. Here you'll find...More

Wanting to treat the wife to a nice Mexican dinner on Valentine's we ended up at the original La Parilla. I have been coming here since it opened in 1978. OK, what about the food. Going for something different I tried the Huarache Tizoc. Grilled...More

This eatery is a cross between your favorite aunt's kitchen and a crazy carnival. Its fun and the food is fantastic (with one exception). The chilaquiles are excellent and served with a generous portion of grilled chicken. Actually, everything is sizable. Unless you are a...More

This is just about the worst food restaurant I have ever been without getting sick of the food. The service by the older ladies is not that bad, but the food!! The complementary chips are mediocre at best. The Sangria is just a bit of...More
