Burrito Parrilla Mexicana's chefs begin artfully crafting dishes the moment each order is placed, pressing dough into two-dimensional tortillas and flame grilling meat into seasoned stomach spelunkers. Ingredients then coalesce into one of the many menu items, tickling taste buds with the grilled steak salad ($6.99) or a burrito with al pastor pork, juicily marinated with peppers and spices, and cooked on a spit ($6.49). Aided and abetted by faithful sidekick rice and beans, the chicken fajita ($9.99) or carne asada ($12.99) put grilled meat and veggies back on the mouth map.
Stationary stomachs can recline among exposed brick walls in Burrito Parrilla Mexicana's comfy booth seating while munching on complimentary chips and salsa. Midday appetites should note that fiestas of businesspeople, family members, and one lonely guy with a lot of stuffed animals create a limited amount of seating during the lunch hours.

Burrito Parrilla Mexicana treats tummies to tantalizing south-of-the-border cuisine served with a modern aesthetic. Mexican favorites mingle on a menu, such as burritos and tacos made with a choice of six meats that include beef picadillo, chorizo, and marinated al pastor pork that regularly defies physics by cooking on a vertical grill and refusing to proofread Isaac Newton’s autobiography. The restaurant’s dinner plates, such as chicken or steak fajitas, arrive at chartreuse booths inside sizzling skillets and accompanied by an elegantly plated assortment of guacamole, pico de gallo, black beans, and rice.
