We had great service with tasty dishes from this authentic New Mexican restaurant.. The space itself is nice providing a variety of seating arrangements I have not seen with combo booths and tables as well as convenient bar seating. The free chips and salsa was decent. The green chili & cheese dip appetizer was interesting. Fajita's hit the spot, but... More

Quaint and modest old fashioned café style establishment. 4 of us stopped in for a late lunch. Service was attentive and with a smile. Food was delicious.

My family always has a great dining experience at El Parian when visiting Okoboji Iowa. Wish the one in Spencer was still open since we go to Spencer, Iowa more frequently. Their strawberry daquiries are amazing!

We ate at this restaurant since it was close to the Twin Cities Premier Outlet. The food was delicious, hot, and very filling. I ordered the lunch sized fajita plate-there was so much food that I could easily share with my daughter and daughter-in-law. We were impressed with the great service-food came quickly and our waiter keep the beverages filled... More

This place is kind of a "hole in the wall" located in a strip mall. Don't let it scare you. They have lots of menu items. I've been here many times and my food is always great and so is the service! Skip the major chains and come check this place. They also have reasonable prices, specials, and awesome margaritas.
