Good traditional Mexican food! A little more cosmopolitan than tacos and burritos, featuring dishes from all over Mexico.

The food is good, though a little higher priced than other places around town. The restaurant is clean, but nothing exciting about the decor. The staff is friendly and helpful.

We have eaten there several times when traveling through Middletown. We have Also stopped with a small group. The service was good and the food was good. The menu had lots to choose from and they made changes to accommodate requests. My husband loves stopping there.

I have eaten ate La Parilla many times and have never been disappointed. We don't have many good restaurants in South Lake County, so La Parilla is especially appreciated.

La Parilla serves the most delicious Mexican food I have had outside of Mexico. It is not so much a Mexican-American restaurant as a Mexican restaurant, so be ready for piquante. The portions are huge, the food is scrumptious, and the value is fantastic. What more can you ask?

For years we've been enjoying the enticing Mexican food that Jonathan Obaza and crew prepare. Capturing the flavors of Districto Federal of Mexico City, this is not your usual "Mexican" fare. The use of cactus, pineapple, great red and green sauces along with tasty preparations for enchiladas, burritos and nachos are family favorites. There is much more to savor here.... More

We are not experts on this type of cuisine but this spot was recommended to us by Jose at Lantry vineyards so we thought it was worth a try. Boy was he right. This local favorite is a little on the small side but does have lots of exterior eating space. Our sever was very helpful in suggesting dishes and... More

This is a very down to earth family owned and operated restaurant. They are extremely friendly and accommodating at this small Mexican restaurant on the edge of Middletown, CA. When visiting family in nearby Hidden Valley Lake, I always make it a point to stop by here solo or with the whole family. This is "Good Eats" that rivals any... More

La Parrilla is a hidden gem! The food is always fresh, flavorful and prepared just the way you like it. The best Mole you will ever eat. We have tried almost everything on the menu and have not found anything we don't like. The portions are generous with pleasing presentations. I love their refried black beans and the rice arrives...

I ordered a No Meat Burrito—It was huge and I had to leave some of it behind. Came with a fresh salad. Just a perfect meal and a warm and cozy atmosphere on a rainy day. Indeed, I’ll be back for another—only I’ll order the smaller one.
