Very good, not as good as some. Would have liked the fajitas on a hot skillet. Family friendly staff was very attentive.

We passed through Griffin one day and decided to try El Charro over La Parilla because El Charro is local and appeared to be more authentic, while La Parilla is actually a chain all around the Atlanta area and is more of an "american mexican" type place.
