I have lived in Monroe my entire life. I've been going to this place ever since I was a little girl. One of the best mexican food places around until about a year ago. Last time I went was probably my last time. Service was horrible, fajita wraps were hard, and fajitas came out cold. There prices have gone up,... More

As a local, we have been coming here for years. The food and service is great. The lunch special prices can't be beat. I am partial to the "Speedy Gonzalez" . My wife loves the cheese dip and will make a meal off of this and a soft taco. They are very friendly and managed well.

We love coming with the kids here. Great atmosphere and decent prices. They have cut back on the "free" cheese dip so that is kinda disappointing, but overall the food is always good.

We consistently get good food and good service. Love the fresh made guac. My mother is a harsh food critic, but she loves this place.

On our way back from Myrtle Beach, we were getting hungry and just pulled off at the first no-chain restaurant we saw. Looked pretty normal, not very busy, but it was a bit early. My adult son ordered the burrito special and I order the enchilada and pepper combination. The chips and salsa were good, but pretty normal. The first... More

Had lunch on Feb 2nd. Their lunch menu has changed a bit so I tried something different. Had the Poncho's Burrito. It was very good and the price was right. Really enjoyed the fresh pico on the top of the burrito. Also had some XX's, was very nice. Will come back again...

Located on the eastbound side of Highway 74 in Monroe and difficult to get to from the westbound side of traffic, El Vallarta offers your standard Mexican fare served in a standard Mexican restaurant environment by friendly servers who provide standard attention to detail. The food is good but not great. They do provide bean dip along with the standard... More

Wednesday special, hard or soft shelled tacos for $1.00 each. If you think it's too good to be true, it is. You get it, but the quality just isn't there. Different varieties, with filling that has been "cooked away", and some served up just plain cold. No toppings (I had to ask for sour cream), not to mention, no lettuce/tomato,... More

Best fajitas I have ever eaten. Hands down. Service was a bit slow- but our server may have just been shy. Our glasses stayed empty and we were only offered more tortillas as we were given the check, but all in all the food was flat out fantastic. Will def go again if in the area. Great value in the...
