Great selection and flavor. We had 11 people for lunch and they were very efficient. They even gave my daughter a birthday dessert with sombrero and a birthday song.

Ate here a two different times and no change with service , staff will walk by and will not assist if u need drink refills. Later the server comes and we say we need drinks then the waiter says I will be back in a minute which was 15min later. Chips cold, food not tasteful very bland. Will never return.

A friend and I make a monthly girl trip from Oklahoma to Joplin to a hair salon. We always try to eat at 'other than national chains'.

We were on the road and checked trip advisor for a Mexican restaurant. ..We tried el Vallarta. ..We tried the flautas and the chicken chimichanga..both were very good. The rice was very good and I am not a big rice eater. We ordered the queso ...it was very good. Salsa was very good. Service was exceptional and restrooms extremely clean.
