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

Tasty table side guacamole! Taquitos are delish. Decent service. Pretty good drinks! Although, I went around happy hour time. My friend and I met in the bar area, but not at the bar. I had my, at the time, 6 month old with me. I ordered one margaritas, we had nachos. I got weird looks and my Margarita was brought... More

I try to go a few times a month! It's that good. We usually order the queso with a pitcher of Margarita's to start. Guillermo is our favorite waiter! Definitely have to go if you're in the area.

Nice bartenders, free shots, lots of attention from staff and awesome food. Chili rellanos is a winner!

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.
