Let me start by saying that this restaurant takes a bit of "understanding". I believe that they have one or two menus, but what you can really get is very limited. I believe that they make up some supper items and that is what the local clientele eats. Los Parados means "the jobless". If you order something off of the... More

We went to this "restaurant" while on vacation and it's proximity to our hotel. I did my due diligence and read reviews and checked out the menu beforehand. It looked promising....but did not deliver. We were going to order enchiladas. No is what the waitress told me. Okay, how about Chilaquiles.. no sorry. No tortillas. ?? Huh ?? This is... More

Visited because of a restaurant coupon. Small, former-something restaurant in the middle of the Hispanic neighborhood. Very basic, but clean. No menus on the table, which is unusual, and none offered by the waitress. English is a second language in this business, but was also not available that night. I know enough Spanish to be comfortable in their eateries, so... More

I thought the atmosphere was great, I had the fajitas which were a smaller portion than most Mexican restaurants I've eaten but I had no problem becasue they were also cheaper than most Mexican restaurants also. If your in the Charleston area arond the Ashley Phosgate Rd area and are in the mood for Mexican food I would recommend this... More

Best Mexican food we have found anywhere! Rivals our favorite place in Arizona. Husband and I both wished were more hungry when we went so we could eat more LOL

This is a gem of a Mexican eatery tucked away in a grimy strip of Ashley Phosphate. The food is fresh and absolutely delicious. I typically get a sope with chicken and a chicken quesadilla. Their carne asada is out of this world, and the man who seasons it is (justly) proud of it. One of the highlights of their... More
