After getting off to a bad start at the Quality Inn Wytheville VA our party of 6 was pleased with our dinner at El Puerto. Food was good, service was great.

I was unimpressed with the food and the service at this restaurant. Fortunately, my family enjoyed their meals, or this place would get one star from me. The wait staff was nice, bu the service was super slow, and some of my food wasn't even hot when it arrived--as though it had just been sitting out after being prepared or... More

Decent service, mediocre food, but average for this area. Being from Southern California, we are used to shredded beef, full size chili rellenos, and salsa with a taste. This place offers none of the above. That being said, we find this true of most of the Mexican restaurants in this area, and we keep comparing to what we are used... More

Food is fine and the price is cheap (considering we've just left New York). The waiter was really helpful.

It's not that the good was bad, just different. We got tacos de carne asada and it was different. They not only put the meat in the tacos but also onions and cilantro were mixed in. There was too much cilantro. Normally the extras are on the side and you add them yourself. So we picked the cilantro ourselves and... More

Within walking distance from the La Quinta, this restaurant was authentic, friendly, and inexpensive. The carnitas were excellent.

The food was great and it was very busy. The service was good, but slow. The cleanliness left some to be desired. I would go back for the food.

We were searching for a restaurant in Wytheville on a Sunday, when most co-chair restaurants were closed in town. This was an average choice. All of the food was fresh and plentiful, and relatively quick, but was bland as compared to more authentic places. I think this is usual to appeal to many Americans. I would not bother ordering a...
