The savvy chefs at El Parral fold tacos and roll hearty burrito scrolls into authentic Mexican dishes from their expansive menu. Lunch guests evade the midday sun to hunt for smothered-chicken burritos paired with creamy-guacamole tostadas ($6.95) or a Mexican torta lined with marinated pork, steak, or breaded steak ($8.50). Later in the day, dinner guests take down feisty slow-cooked house specials such as the taquitos de barbacoa served open face with sautéed onions and pico de gallo ($9.95). A trifecta of chicken, beef, or cheese centers pique tongues’ interests in the three-part enchilada plate ($9.95), and dueling flautas ($9.95) entertain voyeuristic molars. Savor edible embodiments of the Central American coast, like the grilled trout served with a side of rice and beans ($9.95, and two unoccupied tortillas begging to be filled with sliced almonds, avocado, and seashells. Guests can quench thirsts brought on by ambrosial burrito flavors by tippling ice-cold house margaritas ($5) in the restaurant’s cozy, amicable atmosphere.
