Took the recommendations of TripAdvisor and we're thrilled we did. Great service, prices and delicious food with a lot of flavor. It looks like one of those cookie cutter, over decorated Mexican restaurants, but don't let that turn you off, it is so worth the visit. Did I say great food and great prices?!

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.

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
