Really good food and friendly staff

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... read 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

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.

We first came to Perdido about 30 Years ago... A lot of changes but almost all for the best. Check this place out on your first night if you can... Feel welcome and just relax. Great food and drinks. Spot on service ... Try the Texas margarita ... Get the big one D

We had lunch. Our lunches were six bucks each. Super efficient staff. It didn't take long for our meals to arrive. No idea how the owners make a living as the portions were so big we had to take naps when we returned home! Our meals were fresh and delicious. There is some sort of promotion every day of the...

Only 5 miles east of Flor-Bama abound we love it. The staff is efficient and friendly. We never wait long for our affordable meal.

While on vacation, we needed something other than seafood. They always had a crowd and we know why. Fast service and good food.
