Great Mexican Food in Connecticut

Short and sweet. We’ve eaten here three time and each time very good. Probably the best Mexican in Connecticut. I know that it is better than anything we have in Southeastern Connecticut. Big portions. Enjoy

We ordered takeout from Puerto Vallarta on a Friday night and it was amazing. We got the chicken fajitas for two. The portions were huge. They also threw in free queso dip with chips as well as free churros. GREAT MEAL! Better than all of the other local mexican spots.

My wife and I have been here several times, and just keep coming back. I have tried several different dishes on the menu, and they have all been excellent. My wife loves one of the soups they server, it comes with meat balls, and a pile of cilantro on the side to put in to taste. The service is always... More

Food was good. Service and environment were also good. The only thing I didn't like was that the food came too quick as if it had been served for a while.

Went here for dinner with another couple and were promptly seated. We no sooner sat down and chips & Salsa were delivered to our table. We ordered four different dishes and they were all very good. Our waiter David was really good and seemed to be there the moment you needed a water refill. Highly recommend this restaurant and will... More

We have eaten twice so far at the Puerto Vallarta in Newington ct and both times has been excellent. My wife loves the enchilada poblano with mole sauce and says it is the best mole sauce she has ever had. The burrito deluxe is YUMMY. We love this place and will make it a weekly experience.
