After reading other reviews, maybe it depends on what day of the week you visit. My wife liked her chimichanga but my tacos and a tamale both tasted like spaghetti sauce. The service was good. The atmosphere and prices average. There are better places to eat in the area.

Chimichanga was extremely tasty and well prepared; they were accompanied by terrific refried beans, saffron rice with Mexican farmers cheese.Also had Chili Reillenos that was quite well prepared. Service was prompt and very attentive. RECOMMEND

My wife and I had dinner at La Parrilla in Suffolk, after a movie on Saturday night. I ordered the California Fish Tacos, and my wife ordered a fajita quesadilla. I decided to try something new, as every other time I've eaten at La Parrilla, I have ordered the chimichanga. The fish tacos were not very good, not much flavor... More

We had a rehearsal dinner here. The food was OK for me (fajita texana) but absolutely terrible for my wife (an overcooked, cardboard steak - really difficult to mess it up that bad, but even worse to decide to serve it like that). Maybe our large group had overwhelmed the chef. I'm not excited about the location - overlooking a... More

We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened and in the last two visits we have been extremely disappointed in the quality and especially the taste of the food. Today we had a taco salad and mixed fajitas. The taco salad had an off taste and liquid in the bottom of the shell. The mixed Fajitas were presented... More

Have eaten here quite a few times for both lunch and dinner. I would recommend . They serve you quickly and the portions are more than enough for even a hearty appetite.

Ordered the Carnitas and they were very good. Huge portions, very attentive service. My drink was never empty and the chips and salsa were always full. Winner

My vegetarian fajita was grossly over cooked. Told the waiter and he did not say sorry or offer to bring out another serving. He did not care. Not happy with my visit like was in the past. This will prevent me from recommending this place to others for the lack of consistency. Quite unfortunate.
