This is the third year we've dined at El Puerto. The food is excellent, prices are reasonable, service is great and the outside patio is nice.

Traveling solo, and when I walked in, the host greeted me with a monosyllabic "Hey." Despite the availability of tables outside, I was not offered one and was instead shown to a booth with water-stained ceiling tiles overhead. The salsa with the chips was terrible - seemed to be just pureed canned tomatoes. The one redeeming quality was that my... More

The service was very good, and seemed mostly clean enough. The food was decent but nothing spectacular. I was disappointed in the salsa, that was completely missing cilantro, so it was more like a bowl of crushed tomatoes. Also disappointing were the weak margaritas, that tasted like Country Time lemonade. The value was good however, for our family of 6,... More

While not gourmet dining the food was good. The salsa and chips were a little bland. I had a spicey shrimp dish for dinner and several margaritas, needless to say, I was feeling pretty good. The staff was friendly

We enjoyed our dinner at El Puerto restaurant in Wytheville, Va. I had the grilled steak salad and my wife 3 tacos. The food was quite good. The salsa with the chips was a bit bland. A good stop and popular with the locals.

Had combination fajitas which were pretty good but it was light on veggies and sour cream. Salsa was average which was surprising based on others feedback. Chips were fine but overall nothing to rave about.

I drive by Wytheville a half dozen times a year on my way south to golf. The food is outstanding, the service is fast and friendly and you cannot beat the value. I have recommended this restaurant to a dozen other travelers and the all say the same... eat here if you enjoy Mexican food. My favorite is the Texano... More

This is a very nice Mexican restaurant to stop at when going through Wytheville-right off I-79. We sat on the patio which is very nicely furnished as is the interior. The service was fast & friendly. The prices cheap. The food excellent. The portions perfect. What more can you want?

We had dinner at this Mexican restaurant while overnighting in Wyethville, VA. Based on the reviews on TripAdvisor I was looking forward to a great dinner. Unfortunately, the meal itself fell short of its accolades. We started with drinks, I ordered a margarita and my husband a beer. My drink tasted like they just poured mixer straight into a glass...
