This Mexican restaurant is my favorite, not only is the food exceptional the service is amazing! I've tried many things on the menu from the chimichangas, to the fajitas, to the burrito Con Todo! On my most recent visit I had the burrito Con Todo it is grilled steak or chicken, onions, cilantro, Mexican rice, Mexi-beans and your option of hot or mild salsa rolled in a large flour tortilla. Topped with sour cream, avocado and crispy corn tortilla strips. The best Mexican food in Atlanta...view more, you have to go check out La Parrilla!!view less

If Only the Service was Friendlier

I’ve come here a few different times because their menu is really extensive and I keep hoping their service will get better. Their margaritas are very tasty as long as you get a bartender that doesn’t dip the rim in too much salt. Their chimichangas are absolutely amazing, which is ultimately why I come back over and over again. Their servers don’t really care about checking back on you, though. I’ve gone without a drink, without salsa and various other things until it’s time to delive...view morer my check. If you sit right at the bar, it’s not too bad.view less

Poor attitudes/ Poor service

I have been to La Parilla several times because it is close to where I live. The last time we were there we had a small problem with one of the plates and had to send it back to the kitchen. The bartender apparently was offended and never came back to see if we would like another drink,or needed anything else.Although she did stand on the other side of the bar and smerk at us a few times. She not only lost a good sale that night (because we had went there to drink), she lost good custo...view moremers. BAD SERVICE !view less

Great spot for Mexican

La Parrilla has a great and varied menu. I've had their fajitas, chimichangas, etc. Recently, I also had an incredible salad (Steak Provencal Salad?) that they make with grilled steak, mixed greens, cranberry vinagrette, gorgonzola cheese, and tortilla strips. It was an excellent ""lighter"" option for a hot summer evening paired with a couple strong margueritas on the patio. The service and food is consistently good and the atmosphere is very nice.

Large Popular Mexican restaurant

Large Mexican restaurant located in the upper parking deck of the Walmart Shopping Center off of I-75 and Howell Mill. This place has become the ""It"" place within the local community. It is always busy, lunch or dinner. On week-ends parking is impossible and the line is out the door with a 45 minute wait. There is an extremely large u-shaped bar in the center with booth and table seating surrounding. There is a spacious, heated, outside covered patio as well. Don't worry, you wont mi...view moress any part of the big game due to the ample coverage provided by ceiling mounted flat widescreen TV's hung in the corners. A popular family dining place, so be prepared to see LOTS of young children, toddlers and infants.

The food is as expected from a Mexican restaurant. The menu holds all the usuals. Nothing about the foods I have eaten have ever stood out in flavor or presentation. However, the thin chips presented upon seating at the table are amazing and made fresh in house!

The staff is pleasant and knowledgeable, although extremely busy especially during a packed house so don't expect them to be around much. You wont be marooned though because the number of staff is abundant. So you can always get help when needed by simply flagging down someone regardless of whether or not they service your specific table.

I have been here more than once and the last time I went, it was a super packed Friday night. I thought we would be stuck waiting since the line was out the door, but we agreed to take the 1st available seating and were taken directly to a tiny two person patio table.

My date ordered an appetizer for his main meal. They brought that out before they had even come back to ask me what I wanted to eat. At that point my date was already 90% through with his meal and I was left there watching him eat. When the wait staff did finally reappear I had to explain that I needed a rush put on my dinner. The kitchen was most accommodating with this request and my meal was brought out fresh and hot within 10 minutes. What service!

I can't say that I would go out of my way to return to this restaurant but in a pinch it will do. The fact that it is so overly popular, making the parking a nightmare and the wait a possibly long one, I would advise anyone thinking of going to plan well ahead, leave plenty of time to just mill around at the bar waiting on a table and consider leaving the kids at home.

Good food, Nice Decor

I like this place. I usually have really friendly service and good food. I normally go for the fajitas and the queso for an appetizer. It also has nice decor.

Good new addition to Midtown/Westside

It's new. It's good. It's crowded.\r
Be a man and get in line - the food is good. It's a good solid mexican lunch. It's new so it's clean and shiny. It's not unique or the best, but it is good and predictable. There can be a wait at lunch and they don't always get the order just right. But the staff is very friendly and the chips are nice and light!
