good salsa

Look it's garden variety fare, nothing special but i like this kind of food and so do my kids.. the salsa's pretty good and a meal for four isn't too, too expensive.. Whenever we vacation here we stop in..it's the same sort of mexican food that's near your house, you'll like it..

We went to the Vallarta's on Perdido Key. Fish tacos were excellent, their burritos are great. We loved everything we tried, and would always re-visit this place next time we are on Perdido Key.

We loved the cheese dip, it is white and well-flavored, many places do not flavor the dip enough. We loved the flan, it was so delicious. There are two of these restaurants in a few mile radius and both are great, with great service.

We were just looking for a quick lunch when we spotted Vallarta. It looked good so we stopped and we are glad we did. A large menu, a friendly server and top notch margaritas awaited us. There were daily specials but we were also encouraged to try anything on the menu. Prices are moderate and servings are generous. Servers were... More

Not the greatest region for Mexican fare, but this place does a decent job with the standards. Opt for higher-grade margaritas, however. Cheap one is less than so so.

The Food at this restaurnt was the worse food we have ever been served. They do offer a cheap Margaria, and this seems to be their way of getting people in this place. Talking to the servers is a waste of time. They get rude when you question them. If you want cheap Margarita's that taste cheap this is the... More

Went here on a Saturday night. Four of us - two retired couples. Other couple had been there before and recommended it and they were not wrong. Despite the day and the number of cars outside, we were quickly seated and served. Our waiter was prompt and courteous. The menu had sufficient variety and the food was very good, especially...

My title about sums it up..if you want Mexican food really bad than I guess this is where you go because there is no other place in Perdido other than Vallarta's at this location or down the way at their other location. Food prices are good for families. Drink specials are a draw but watered down then as well as... More

My husband and I visited on a Monday night for their combo special. It was not a place we chose to visit again. Service was a bit s l ow, and food wasn't memi t able. The cost was the only redeeming feature.
