Great service and delicious tamales.

My standard for Mexican restaurants is the tamales and salsa. I admit I do not like things very spicey so the salsa here was perfect for me. If you want more heat, there three bottled options at the table to make it spicier. My fear ordering tamales for dinner is they will be re-heated from being... read more

Cannot beat the Burrito Puerto Vallarta!! Great if eating there or take out. The only thing about take out is they only give you a small cup of salsa and their salsa is fabulous!!

We like eating here. The food is good, the margarita's are excellent. The price has increased slightly. The service is excellent. They are quick with the food. The décor is nice. We usually don't have to wait for a table. I like when they serve the warm chips and the salsa is good.

Many Mexican restaurants have salsa that isn't any better than what you can get in a store, but Puerto Vallarta's salsa is simply better than most. That said, on to the meals. Again, so many Mexican restaurants dishes all taste the same. Not the case here. The Chicken Fajita Quesadilla is one of the best Mexican dishes I have eaten.

I have had better Mexican food. Wouldn't say that this place is bad, but can't rate the food any better than average. Service was acceptable and the cost very reasonable.

We love coming here! Staff is always quick and food is very fresh and super yummy! It's close to home and we can dine as a family of 4 for under $30 (if you aren't ordering adult drinks)!! Doesn't get much better than that!

This restaurant has the right balance to make it a nice place to go when you want good food, and nothing fancy. The mexican food is better than average, and the service is fast. They also have excellent margaritas.

This use to be our favorite Mexican restaurant but not anymore. The prices have increased outrageously while the food quality has decreased. Food is blah and the bean dip tastes watered down. Margarita's use to be a reasonable price but again this cost has also risen. We use to go at least once a week and take our friends...of course... More

It is true, this place has formulaic mexican food- but my wife and I gobble it up, love the margaritas, service is amazingly fast for the crowds. It is always full of people having a good time. We go back again and again, they never give us a reason not to. It has been the same hardworking bunch of guys... More

I've been to this establishment several times and experienced the same hostile attitude from all the servers that I've had. I tip well and ask for no special requests from the menu. This last visit, our party was asked to leave immediiately after we finished dinner due to "other customers waiting". None of us will be returning. If I want... More
