Fajita Republic has been a favorite of ours for years due to its location and price. The quality of the food has declined however. The first sign were the menus which were tattered and resembled something you'd find on the floor, not a table. The ribs were dry and the salads wilted. The fajitas and tacos were of better quality... More

We are here on our last night in Puerto Vallarta. We were very glad to finish our trip with such a wonderful meal. We pigged out and took boxes of food home. The portions are very large. We all agreed that two people with moderate appetites could have shared one meal. They bring you jicama and cucumbers with a seasoning... More

Great presentation and choice of food and wonderful decor but the meat was chewy and somewhat tasteless. It was always busy when we went by but they looked like they might be newcomers, not repeat customers.

I've been going to this restaurant for almost 15 years. The food is consistently amazing and the service is always top notch. I usually try to go a little earlier, (before 6:00) as I don't like to wait, but even when you do, they turn their tables pretty quickly. My Favorite is the surfing cow which is a marinated skirt...

Don't get me wrong. The food here is good. The location and the restaurant are lovely. Service is fine and prices are very reasonable. The menu covers just about anything you would want. Meals are consistent visit to visit and I've never had a bad experience. However, there is nothing especially creative, exciting or adventurous about the food. The word... More

Loved the fajitas at this restaurant. Nice atmosphere and great service. I would recommend sharing if you have an average appetitie as the portions are quite big. If you can eat a lot then you will be happy with the size of your meal. We had a group of 9 and it worked out to about 15 per person with... More

Stopped here for a quick dinner and was immediately seated outside. Great to people watch. Margaritas are very good as are the fajitas. Service was prompt & efficient. Sleek modern decor. Will eat here again.

What a pleasant and wonderful dinner we had at this place. There was a bit of waiting time as it was full but definitely worth it. The fajitas are super delicious. Also love the design of this restaurant. Service could be a little more organized.

The food is ok, but not real Mexican food. The restaurant caters primarily to American and Canadian tourists. The margaritas were OK (a little sweet) and the Fajitas Presidente were tasty, but we had to ask for extra tortillas (they gave us 6 for 2 people) and that took a long time. They also supplied only small portions of the... More
