El Parian is a very good place to get Mexican. The prices are very reasonable, the service is decent and it's very child friendly.

Beth and I visited the restaurant on March 22nd 2017, around 5 pm.
We were served complementary Chips and Salsa. The Chips were bland, so was the Salsa. It seemed like we were eating salt-spice free food. A good sala is made of Tomatoes Onions, Salt, Pepper, lemon/lime juice, freshly chopped cilantro. The salsa served was like V8 tomato juice without 'any spices'.
There are no Mexican beverages. The beverages are limited to Coke fountain. It was not even set right for the tea. Beth got Coke, and I got Sprite. There was no pink lemonade, or event Orange beverage. This was no what you expect at a Mexican restaurant.
For dinner we both ordered grilled chicken dinner. It comes with 3 pieces of chicken breast sauteed onions bell peppers, house sauce; fried beans, Mexican rice, Tortillas, and Salad. The 3 pieces of chicken are about 1.5 oz each thin flattened. Total amount of chicken in each dinner was less than 5oz. The house sauce on Chicken was 'extremley salty'. Couldn't really eat the salty chicken, we brought it home. Bow bow and Sparty (Dogs) wil be happy. The refried beans were not homemade, they were 'out of can'. The Mexican rice was acceptable. There was no Guacamole. They avoided avacados for cost.
The corn tortillas were acceptable.
The salad was late in coming, it arrived near the end of main course. There were sliced raw onions on Iceberg lettuc, topped with small amount of white cheese resembling Feta. It was NOT Feta cheese. For dressing they used some house vinagerette without oil. It was not Caesar's dressing. The best part of the entire dinner was grilled broccoli on salad. It would have been better if they also included grilled Green Peppers.
We did not order any desserts.
Price per dinner was 11.99, beverage was priced at 2.79 each.
I liked the decor. The service was poor, they were getting set up for dinner hour.
Both of us were disappointed

Could not possibly do justice on a quick review of how fantastic this Mexican restaurant is! Clean, well lit, good music (at a minimum volume), great wait staff, phenomenal food (the Hawaiian burrito is out of this world) - don't go in thinking this is just like every other Mexican restaurant that you've been to - this place is the best!!

The food was good. The service and food was not as good in our opinion as the Mexican restaurant in north Zanesville. They had a lot of choices on the menu though, so maybe it was just our choice.
