We started with the guacamole and it seemed to have mostly all avacado and a minimal amount if any fillers. We had the Fabians special and a tamale, taco and stuffed pablano chili. All were well cooked. They were flavorful but not spicy. You can add salsa or hot sauce if you like it spicier. Service was very efficient and... More

The service was excellent. Our drinks were always full. Food was really good. Guacamole needs a little lime juice bit was still good. Salsa and chips good. 11 in our party and everyone cleared their plates. Atmosphere is wonderful too. Recommend it.

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.

Ya know how Jimmy John's commercials say "freaky fast delivery?" They have nothing on El Vallarta! My family and I always joke that they deliver the food before you order it. Does that smack of premade food? Of course. But the food is good and the service is great, so why complain? The chips and salsa are just okay (I... More
