We enjoyed this restaurant so much we went 3 times while we were in P.V. I liked the shrimp fajita best and my husband liked the chicken.

Best chips & salsa!!! The angus steak fajitas were excellent even well done! The sides included are generous & you can choose corn or flour tortillas! The bad hog combo consisted of beer battered shrimp, crispy salad & ribs!! Food was excellent service so so....

(photos of the menu at the end) We walk past this restaurant almost daily and haven't stopped until now. What a great restaurant. The staff were very attentive and funny. We had the Cheese Sticks to start. Not the cheese sticks you get in Canada - these were awesome. Then we had the Garlic Shrimp (comes on a salad with... More

Great dinner stop one night. We had a couple different meals and did family style. ICE coldest beer I had the entire trip. I'll be back next time.

I first came to Fajita Republic back in the late 90s traveling with my family. I was really hoping that my memories of that visit and a 2005 visit to the NV location would still hold up in 2016. I was lucky! The food was as good as I remember. The meat was seasoned well, the tortillas were perfect and... More

We have been visiting this place for about a dozen years now and always on our first night in PV. It is a tradition to have our best meal on the first evening in town. Another great time!!!

Went there twice as the food and drinks were very good. Their Cadillac Margaritas (Grand Marnier) are killer and their Enchiladas tasty and authentic. Great atmosphere and waitstaff as well. You can't go wrong here.

My first visit to Fajita Republic was wayyyy back when it occupied the current space for Margarita Grill and Piano (of Encanto) was the host, after he left Cafe de Olla. At that time, this was one of the worst meals I had in Vallarta. We all know that Vallarta has excellent food, and the only times I've had a... More

The fajitas are excellent and the service was very good. I was there on a Sunday night when the restaurant was practically empty. However, they closed the kitchen before asking me if I wanted any dessert. I would have liked to try their fried ice cream.

This is a very large restaurant with condominiums attached. Typical Mexican menu. Very crowded for dinner. Expect to stand in line. Although we feel it is very average, the large crowds might seem to belie that. The location is excellent on Restaurant Row. Puerto Vallarta has much better Mexican food in other locations. Cafe de Olla at the beginning of... More
