La Parilla Atmosphere:
La Parilla is the Mexican destination for the Toco Hills area near Decatur. The other top Mexican spot near Toco Hills is Los Loros, but I haven’t been there for a while since they were renovating. Eating Mexican food while people do construction around you is not ideal.
La Parilla has a very large dining area with an enormous bar. I often find myself cursing the kids because it’s always packed with families and kids screaming.
This isn’t exactly your authentic Mexican destination, but for Tex Mex it’s great.
La Parilla Food:
There’s so many different kinds of Mexican it’s ridiculous. On the one end of town you have your Nuevo Laredo Cantina, which is a classic Atlanta destination. Then you have your Taqueria Del Sol, which is more gourmet like. And Finally you have your La Parilla’s, which is just some down home, comfort, Tex Mex.
I always start out with the bean and cheese dip, which is pretty self explanatory, and the Number #4 because I figure you get the most for your money, and it’s covered in cheese.
The #4 consists of two tacos covered with just the right amount of cheese, a Chili Con Queso which is just beef and beans on a hard shell tortilla covered in cheese. It’s basically bean and cheese dip, add beef. And finally it comes with an enchilada of your choosing.
Also just as delicious are the Carne Asada Tacos. Meat is seasoned wonderfully and the tortillas are charred just a little, add hot sauce and you got a great meal.
