La Paz offers fine Mexican food and drink, served in a beautiful new building on the Carroll Creek Promenade in downtown Frederick, Maryland. We especialize in good food, good friends, and good times in our casual and relaxed atmosphere. Come join us on our new patio with creekside dining. The year was 1978 when a new restaurant, La Paz, opened its doors in Frederick City. Fast forward to 2006 where a renewed and updated La Paz has become a reality. We’ve brought all of our history and memories with us to our new home which features creekside dining on our spacious patio, handicap accessibility, and colorful and festive décor. Our menu still offers all of your favorites, along with some exciting new additions and our two expanded bars feature our legendary margaritas and homemade sangria. We look forward to seeing you in our wonderful new home. The journey continues and the best is yet to come—at La Paz! Location You can’t miss us! Located front and center on Market Street and beside Carroll Creek in charming downtown Frederick, La Paz greets you as you drive into the city on Market Street (Route 355). As you drive north on Market Street look to your left and you will see our sign. See the information provided on this page for parking. We look forward to serving you soon! Parking
La Paz is located in close proximity to two parking decks in Frederick City. To reach the Court Street Deck, take a left turn onto Citizen’s Way immediately after passing our building. The deck is on the right hand side of Citizen’s Way. Another alternative is the Carroll Creek Parking Deck. To reach this deck, turn right onto Carroll Creek Way, immediately after passing our building. The deck is located straight ahead, on the left. Coming Soon: A third deck is under construction, just up the creek on Patrick Street. We will update you when it is available. In addition, street, metered parking is available all over the City of Frederick. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) What does La Paz mean? Literally, “the peace,” but the restaurant was named for a town on the Baja of Mexico. Do you take reservations? We take reservations for parties of six or more anytime EXCEPT Friday and Saturday evening (after 4). If I don’t have a reservation will I have a long wait to be seated? We do experience waits, especially on weekends, but we have two cozy bar areas and some space on our patio for customers to wait. Come on in—we’ll make you comfortable and normally things move along in a timely manner! Where shall I park? La Paz is fortunate to be located between two (soon to be three) parking decks in the city. The Carroll Creek deck can be accessed from Market Street (turn right just beyond our building) and the Court Street deck is right behind us (turn left at Citizen’s Way just after our building). Of course, there is street parking all around the downtown area. Do you have handicap accommodations? We are completely handicap accessible. Is there a dress code? We have a casual atmosphere. Are there alternative selections for guests not wanting Mexican? Absolutely! We have strip steak, burgers, and a variety of other options for everyone. How about a kid’s menu? We have a section on the menu for our little friends. Do you reserve private parties? We don’t have a private room per se, but we do try to accommodate groups for special occasions. Call us and we’ll discuss. Are their job openings at La Paz? We are always looking for energetic persons to be on our team. Applications are available—see Amy or Graham.
