This is hands down the very best Mexican Restaurant in town! The Salsa is soooo freaking delish! I get full just off of it! My most fave item on the menu is chicken fajita taco salad! The staff is just like being around family, they know my name and are very awesome people!

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!!

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 made earlier in the... More

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
