Food and service are usually good, however tonight the food was sub par and the service was also sub par. Asked for hot sauce as bottle was empty and never received it. Queso was skimmed over and cold on the enchiladas. Server was inattentive.

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.
