This was a busy weekend so we felt pretty lucky to get a seat at the bar. Food is just OK Mexican. Service was good, and although the restaurant was pretty busy the food came out in pretty good timing.

We were immediately seated for dinner and had the best service. Wait staff was extremely attentive. The food was reasonably priced and very tasty. I definitely would recommend this place and will certainly return.

I have eaten here a few times and each time the food has been delicious. The staff is very attentive and the restaurant itself is very attractive.

This is a lovely restaurant with beautiful lighting. It is large and can accommodate a big crowd. The wait staff are neatly dressed. I just ordered basic Mexican fare. It was OK. The beans were runny and without much taste. Maybe I should have ordered something more special.

Our tour bus broke down on our way back to hotel. We were lucky enough to break down right across the street from this restaurant. Our tour manager called them and asked if they could accomodate us on short notice (we had reservations at another restaurant in the next town). We all crossed the street and they had tables all...

We visited the restaurant on Friday August 22nd for dinner. the service was first class and the food was even better. I can still think about the fajitas and wish that we could go back. Would recommend this restaurant without any hesitation whatsoever. thanks for a great evening

the food and service continues to be the best Mexican restaurant in the area. The fish on the menu always seems to be fresh and the beer always cold.

I have enjoyed good Mexican food in Mexico, NY, ATL, and many other places around the world. Enjoy very good Mexican food at Puerto Nuevo in a little town called Banner Elk, NC. The service is fast and friendly, the salsa and chips are great (don't make a meal of them), have fresh guacamole made at your table, and then... More

Friendly dining experience with plenty to choose from. Food is well prepared, served fast and when the bill arrives you can't believe you ate all that and the bill is only this much! Wait staff are all very nice and keep chips and water flowing. We usually stop by this place sometime during our visit to Banner Elk. No reservations... More
