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

There's not too much that sets this place apart from others. Average Mexican fare; the usual menu offerings with the exception of some delicious potato-filled enchiladas. good premade/premixed margaritas, good Mexican beer choices. Always busy for some reason and always filled with loud children. Is close to home here in the Eagle Creek area so it's a fair choice and... More

This is our go-to restaurant. Great service, very good food, really a good value. I love the tamales, my wife lives for the chicken soup. The soup seems simple, but is just done so right. My college age sons agree this is probably the best Mexican food in the Indianapolis area.
