Good food.

Stopped in late one night after arriving in town. Food was very good, all four people in our party ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their meal. Margaritas were a little on the weak side but the food covered for them and service was fantastic.

Overall I would rate this place a 3.5-4 out of 5 stars. I'll give my opinion based on the topic (see below) with an individual rating. Location: 5 out of 5. This place is right off Perdido's main highway and can be easily reached from any of the resort / vacation buildings in the area. Service: 4 out of 5.... More

My husband and I braved a rainstorm to eat Mexican food at this restaurant and were not disappointed. We shared fajitas and I had a chili relleno side. Plenty of food and very tasty. Know this is a chain restaurant which we try to avoid but glad we came. Enjoy!

El Vallarta Mexican restaurant located in Perdido Key is the best one out of all chain locations. The staff are super friendly and the food is fresh and very good for Tex-Mex.

We decided to eat at El Vallarta because it was down the street from our condo. We were very unhappy with our decision to do so. We were served chips and salsa (which was very spicy and without much flavor) right away but then didn't see a waiter. We asked an employee who our waiter was and she very kindly... More

We had been camping and decided to try Mexican food for a change. We were pleasantly surprised at how good our food was .... Will definitely eat here again when we're in the area. We don't consume alcohol so I can't review those. Service was great and the food came quick.

Some in our family were starving out for Mexican food so we tried El Vallarta in that it was very nearby. The food was ok to better than average....the atmosphere was lacking and the service was not the best. The restaurant an ok alternative to seafood...but would think twice before going back.
