Reviewed 14 July 2016

First time at El Parian, my wife remarked how cute the place is. She ordered the chile relleno (cheese), which was first rate. I had the carnitas, which were the best I've has since coming east from California. Tender, juicy,inside, seared on the outside. A gem.

We've been here several times and have had good experiences each time, but the last time was especially good. We split the fajitas for two, which is my new favorite now. It was delicious, as were the churos that I had to get to go because I was so full. The service was as good as always, which in this case is pretty good.

IMHO you need good service to have a great restaurant.. This restaurant offers very good food and sometimes offers good service but that is hit and miss.
