We visited this new restaurant last weekend for dinner and had a great experience. The food was excellent and the menu was extensive. Contrary to some other reviews I have seen, the food goes beyond the traditional Mexican-American fare (tacos, burritos, tostadas, etc.) to include some unique regional dishes and sauces that you don't typically find in most Mexican restaurants, such as enchiladas divorciadas, shrimp and fish salads, pipian sauce. I had a hard time making up my mind with so many new offerings to try but finally settled on the Vallarta Salad, which was great. The mango-citrus dressing was delicious and the varied ingredients in the salad (mango, cucumbers, avocado corn) made it an unusual and welcome mix. My companion had the Steak Jalisco, which was equally delicious, with peppers, mushrooms, and onions smothered on the steak. There are plenty of other dishes like these on the menu (the insert that fits inside the larger book). Oh, we also shared an order of the Tortilla Soup, which was the best I've ever had (forget Panera or Applebee's, this was the real deal, not overly done with tons of cheese). The drinks were also top-notch. Our favorite was definitely the regular Margarita, although the Margarita Vallarta was also excellent--sweet and smooth, and the original Margarita would suit those who prefer a more tart-flavored drink. The prices are reasonable ($8-17 per dinner entree, more or less) and it seems like their lunch prices make it a good place for mid-day dining as well.
I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone interested in a great dining experience. The decor is attractive and inviting, the background music is pleasant, and the service was excellent. There's plenty here for traditionalists who want to stick with what's familiar in Mexican-American cuisine (chimichangas, nachos, etc.). But if you're willing to experiment and go beyond your comfort zone, you'll find that there are many other unusual and delicious offerings to please your palate.
