Looking for authentic Mexican food? El Pareja’s, 28924 Greenspot Road in the Stater Bros. shopping center, is the place to go.
The restaurant opened last December and serves a variety of freshly made Mexican dishes including burritos (breakfast/regular/wet or mojado), breakfast, tacos, quesadillas, combination plate ($12.99) and more.
On a trip to the Highland location (there is another location in the city of Fontana on 14755 Foothill Blvd.) I had a wet/mojado carne asada burrito with rice and beans topped with salsa verde and melted white cheese, which cost $8.99. If you are not into spicy food, this item is not for you.
I also had homemade lemonade with a fresh lime.
The burrito had a very fresh taste to it, and it left me feeling full after the last bite.
I personally loved the salsa verde, that was placed around the burrito, which mixed together lit up my taste buds.
El Pareja sells meat for parties/events; they offer carnitas, cuero, carne, buche and chicharron for $12.99 a pound.
Handmade tortillas are $5.99 a dozen.
El Pareja is open for take-out, pick-up and dine-in service.
The dining room seats between 30 and 40 people with a simple table and chair setup along with Mexican music playing in the background.
The staff is friendly and very attentive to your dining needs. A staff member will bring your food to your table.
Their hours of operation Friday, Sunday, Monday and Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
