Wow...wow and wow! Visiting for a wedding and needed fun food for a large family! You can't go wrong with tacos, chips and salsa! El Parasol came through on this meal! 75 tacos and lots of chips n' salsa! Tacos were fresh n hot... full of aroma and flavor. Very authentic! That Red chili was oh so hot!!! The green was mild and full of flavor... all in all an excellent place to eat.

So, we're from Canada. Took a side trip from Santa Fe for a day with no plan or itinerary, and ended up in Espanola. It was lunch time so we stopped at the first place we thought we could get something local.

Home run.

This place is awesome! Authentic, delicious southwestern food. No pretensions, just spectacular flavour, a varied menu, and unbelievable value. Clearly this place is a local favorite, as it was fairly busy and it did take a while for our order to be prepared, but you can't rush greatness and it was worth the wait. This Canuck is not used to the intensity of this kind of cuisine...there's spicy hot and then there is authentic southwest spicy hot. I probably overdid it a bit, but wow, it was worth it.

If you every accidentally find yourself in Espanola like we did, don't miss out on going to El Parasol.

My wife and I stop here every time we visit the area. The chicken tacos are to die for, we've never had better. If you're looking for cheap street food, look no further

This has to be one of the best restaurants in the whole area. The food is terrific, but the service isn't always great. The place started on their tacos, but there are so many more better dishes. The red and green salsa served together on any dish is fantastic.
