We visited on the Kids eat free with adult entree purchase meal deal. The prices where excellent, the service was excellent & of course the food was excellent. The meal portions were large and filling. Everyone in our family was happy with everything, which is often enough hard to pull off.

I always get great service at lunch and the food is great.However I do not recommend going at dinner time or getting carry out during dinner time as the quality of service declines SIGNIFICANTLY.It will be a waste of your time and money to go during dinner.Servers will avoid your table and not even place your order for carry out...

It's hard to find Horchata but La Parilla has it. It's really sweet but tastes really good. The food was your typical Mexican food. It was good and the service was good. The salsa is very tasty compared to other places. I'll definitely be back.

Visit was bad from the start. All TVs tuned to Spanish speaking soccer. Championship games on. Ask for 2 waters no lemon. 5 minutes later with lemon. Chips were all crumbs. Asked another waiter and had to wait 5 more minutes until our crappy waiter came back to get more. Ordered and waited at least 20 for food. Wife's dish... More

My family and I stopped to eat dinner here on our way home from a trip to Nashville. The food was very good. I was not pleased with the sweet tea. I am not sure what was wrong with it, it may have been just my taste. But the waiter nicely brought me a coke instead. We would eat here... More

Service was very good meals came on time. Food was OK, not enough meat in the fajitas, refried beans were a little too dry.

La Parilla is our go to Mexican restaurant in West Knoxville. The service is quick and friendly. The food is delicious. The salsa is well blended (not chunky) and has visible cilantro which we love. Steak fajitas are my favorite.

The food is great tasting at any price but at their reasonable prices the food is excellent. The only Mexican restaurant that has as many Mexican patrons as non-Mexican patrons eating and enjoying the food.

Delicious Mexican dishes are served here! This time we ordered the Puerto Vallarta Fajitas for two. If you love charcoal grilled seafood, then this dish is the one to get. It is loaded with large shrimp, and with bay scallops, and crab. We want to return soon and order this or order another one of their specialty fajita dishes.

Thank Phillip and Mar... W
