Authentic Mexican Cuisine!

Authentic Mexican cuisine? In CONNECTICUT???? (really?) REALLY! The wife and I ate at Puerto Vallarta and I must admit I was skeptical. But Puerto Vallarta was absolutely delicious! My pork carnitas, beans, rice & tortillas were everything I remember (and have missed) from my previous 20 years in... read more

Menu has changed as well as management. Still good food. Service was a little slow that day. Will go back.

We ate dinner here in a recent trip to CT and would definitely come back again! Food was delicious and not too pricey. Table-side guacamole was one of the best we've had!

OK--it's not the same as eating Mexican food in the Southwestern U.S.--the ingredients and flavors are different, the chips and tortillas are not hand made. But the food is tasty and consistently good. The staff are efficient and pleasant, the prices are fair, the menu is large and the slightly kitschy decor seems to fit just right. If you go... More

Out of all of the Mexican restaurants I have been to in CT (and I live in Fairfield County) this one is the best. I drive from Danbury to go to this restaurant. Why do I like it so much? Well, (1) the food is not only well seasoned but you can get dishes like garlic shrimp and braised pork... More

As a matter of fact, have been there many times for both lunch and dinner and found the generous servings priced reasonably and tasting quite good. Unfortunately, on this most recent visit, they did not put their best foot forward. When served, I was told the plate was hot; that is the only thing hot! I left our booth, found... More

Not as much history as another long-time Mdtn Mexican restaurant, maybe not as trendy as the other, but it's consistently good. While technically on Main St, it's inside the square where the movie theater is. Wonderful staff, great portions, great selection. Get the guac' made tableside. It'll have you coming back.
