Outstanding food, great atmosphere!

This is one of the most amazing Mexican Restaurants I have had the pleasure to eat at. Their seafood dishes are second to none, shrimp cooked perfectly, so full of flavor, zest and spiciness to match any palette's preference. The table side guacamole is wonderful and a lot of fun for the kids... read more

My husband and I go here at least once a month. The food is amazing and I love the portions they give you. My favorite thing to order is the Carne asada and con queso. The staff is friendly, and we always have excellent service whenever we go. Plus awesome Margarita's.

My friend invited me to this place. The food was great. Traditional mariachi on Sunday's . The staff was very accommodating. Our food was freshly made. We enjoyed our visit. We plan on going back.

Not good for conversation, could hardly talk - high energy place, had appetizers - loaded nachos and loaded potatoes - shared by three which filled us all. Generous free chips and salsa and queso cheese dips.

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.

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.
