Located in the old National Guard armory on Hwy 71 (now refurbished Armory Square), this very nice looking and spacious restaurant serves up the best Mexican in the area. Thee food is very good and fresh. The price is right as well.

Let me begin by saying the food was terrific. The rating is because of the really poor service. We came after the summer season, so the restaurant was not full - there were many empty tables. And yet immediately after we were seated - we had not even opened our menus - the waiter appeared and asked to take our... More

You would never guess from the small sign outside and the plain brick facade that there is a really good mexican restaurant in that building! There were 8 of us and we went two nights in a row. We had to wait a few minutes the second night, but service was fast and pleasant. We were impressed by the size... More

Went there with my parents and wife while visiting them in Park Rapids. They took us to Vallartas and it was great. I have been to Companeros before and this beats it hands down. And now that Companeros has burned down, Vallartas should see their fame spread. I look forward to my next visit. Only real problem I had was... More

Vallarta's was a recommendation from our parents and we would normally hit Companeros for Mexican in Park Rapids; but, this place is simply a gem! We loved it! Great atmosphere, authentic chips & salsa, great staff and I gotta give the Burro Loco Burrito was superior. We will definitely be back again!! Try this place out.

I am not a big fan of Mexican food but I will go with my wife to make her happy. We decide to do Vallartas and I had the best Mexican meal I have ever had. Since I don't know much about the food I tried something's that I had not seen on other menus and they were delicious. Our... More

It is a great pleasure to now be able to get real Mexican food in Park Rapids. In the past, the best option was Campanero's in Dorset, which is really bland and tasteless Minnesota Mexican. Vallarta's offers a large variety of authentic Mexican cuisine with the flavors and spices one experienced with south-of-the-border food would expect. Their salsa is fantastic,... More

We have been coming to Park Rapids MN for 20 years and have always gone to Companeros in Dorset (a few miles out of Park Rapids) for Mexican food, but this year a new restaurant has opened in town and the food is incredible. The menu is definitely authentic and is so large it took us quite a while to... More
