Great food

Service wasn't the best but the food and drinks made up for it. Service wasn't horrible just not overly friendly. Highly recommend the margaritas. We will be back.

We just stopped there for lunch today. The only thing remotely good were the chips. Both apps were terrible. Guacamole straight from a box. Did not taste like avocados. Smooth and bland. The bean dip was just weird. A few soupy beans covered in a soupy white sauce. My cheese enchiladas had NO flavor whatsoever. Wilted salad on the side... More

We enjoyed our meal here. I thought the salsa was too spicy (for me...others said it was fine) so I ordered some cheese dip. That was spicy too! It was still good though. Our main meals were tasty! Better than many Mexican places we've been to on our travels.

Have been visiting this restaurant for a few years whenever visiting perdido key. Service and food quality have always been consistent. Fun laid back atmosphere - no problem to head there from the beach or boat etc... The Vallarta chilies are outstanding 2 chilies stuffed with choice of beef chicken or shrimp. Margaritas are ok but huge for the $... More

We have been coming for several years to Perdido Key, and always stop at least once at Vallarta. Great food, and drinks. Excellent service done quickly for a very busy place. All dishes done well.

We ate there the first evening we got into town. Food was good. Some of the best salsa I've ever had. Server was a bit rude.

Upon arriving my family and I were seated at a table with padded benches. One bench had a hole in the seat. We asked to be moved. Ordered food and it was just not good at all. Daughter had chicken fajita nachos and the put so much guacamole the food became overpowered by it. All other food was just not... More

We stopped in after going to the Naval Air Museum, on the way back to Orange Beach. Five people are for $50, which included Queso and fajitas at lunch! Wait staff was great ms all of our food was wonderful.

Stopped in late evening after a full afternoon of ziplining! The service was great, the food was authentic and the dining experience was quite impressive as well. Fajitas were plentiful and delicious. My only squabble is that my daughter ordered a soft taco, and she received a hard taco. And the waiter (completely overloaded) took an extra 25 minutes to...
