  1. My vote is no for downtown. Haven't tried the others.

    1. East LA was great last time I was there.

      1. I have been to all three locations, I prefer the East Los Angeles location, it seems more authentic there, and the waitreses have more down to earth attitude.

        1. Isn't there one on Valley Blvd. in Alhambra? I feel like I drive by it all the time.

          La Parilla Mexican
          2938 W. Valley Blvd.
          (626) 289-2412

          I wonder how that one is.

            This location would work for me, but is it better than Tacos Baja Ensenada? I just can't imagine anything better than that! But if you tell me so, then I will chase to try it.

              Confusingly, I don't think La Parilla in Alhambra is related to the other ones. It is a pretty average Mexican place.

                I'll take your word for it, Ernie. I haven't actually stopped to try it, but I have thought to do so, because I always thought it was the La Parilla that people said good things about on this board. Guess I was wrong. Thanks.

                liu, I can't recommend it, since I haven't tried it yet. :)

            2. The original La Parilla in ELA is best
