Mention Taqueria La Parilla and you will be met with a litany of praises—great food, great prices and great service. La Parilla has become a local favorite for gatherings of all sizes and for all occasions.
Fresh chips and salsa greet you within minutes after you are seated and provide you with a taste of what you can expect from the authentic Mexican menu. Specialties include Mexican tacos made with corn tortillas, cilantro and special sauce and tostado de ceviche, lemon marinated raw fish mixed with raw vegetables and served on a corn shell with avocado. Nachos are served six different ways, ranging from the simple nachos with cheese to the deliciously complicated nachos fajitas. Dip choices include bean, cheese and guacamole.
La Parilla believes that variety is the spice of life and gives customers not one, not two, but thirty combination plates to choose from if you are a meat lover and fourteen if you are a vegetarian. Pair your enchilada, burrito, taco, chile relleno, quesadilla, tamale or chalupa with what you like best. Or, turn to the Platillos Dinners menu featuring dishes to suit every palate, from pollo a la parilla to steak a la Mexicana. Also on the menu are quesadilla, fajitas, and burrito dinners.
The kids menu has an ample selection of Mexican plates, but offers a backup dish of chicken nuggets with fries.
It will be hard, but save room for dessert dishes that include fried ice cream and flan.
Meat lovers and vegetarians, children and adults, all are happy at Taqueria La Parilla.
