La Parilla is now La Antigua and is at the same location. I love the "El Pescador," which is grilled shrimp, onions, garlic, tomatoes, mushrooms, cilantro, and fresh jalapenos sautéed in white wine sauce. I also love their salsa, the "Chicken Pescador" and margaritas. The best Mexican style restaurant in Port Lavaca for sure! Service can be slow, but well worth the wait and the prices are great for what you get and I don't even eat the tortillas/beans/rice. I order the dish just for the shrimp or chicken and veggies in the sauce along with the salsa! I do wish that they would bottle and sell the salsa!

This restaurant is now called La Antigua. We have been here several times, and almost all of the chicken dishes and fish dishes are really good. They also have good frozen margaritas which cannot be said about many of the Mexican restaurants in town. The service can be slow at times, but you have to expect that in a small south Texas beach town. The portions this time seemed to be a bit smaller than in the past, but they are still more than enough to satisfy. We always have left overs to take home.
