The carnitas were outstanding! Had one margarita but switched to beer! I sat at the bar and had a good time with the staff for several hours! I would go back!

I have been twice. It is across the road from the hotel I stay in. Both times I had to flag down my server to get another drink after waiting for many minutes. The draft beer is very cold and the food decent.

From the stale chips, bad salsa, horrible margarita (tasted like plain ole mix) to the entree of chili relleno, (which was some browned hamburger with cheese on top) the whole experience was very unexceptional. When told about the chili relleno with no chili, we were told we should of ordered the poblano chili relleno. Live and learn. We will not... More

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.

This is where you want to go to eat Mexican food in Wytheville. The service is great and the food is also excellent. My fiance and I eat here quite frequently and have never had a bad experience. We will be back!
