The best tacos in town. It is the definition of a hole in a wall. But this is where you usually find the best authentic food. You must try the pork with pineapple taco. The portions are generous and the service is quick and good. You have to try it at least once. It will change forever how you think... More

Popular and good, hence can be crowded, but the tacos are well worth the wait. Both the tacos and the people watching make this a must do in PV

Wow!!! Make sure you get there at 6 when they open because there is a line! They were quick and made sure our family of 6 had a place to sit! Everyone will recommend the tacos they are famous for but... STEAK AND MUSHROOM TACOS ARE THE BEST! :) We will be back!

Great tacos at a bargain price. Yes, the line begins to form a few minutes before the 6 pm opening. Yes, the tables are pinched together to maximize the diners that can enjoy the food. And yes, it can be a bit toasty with all the people and cooking going on. AND, you will get the best tacos in town... More

First night in Puerto Vallarta my husband and I came here to eat dinner. We made it just before the rush as we came right as they opened around 6:15 so we got the last seat. It is a small restaurant, crowded and expect to wait in line if you come at prime time. We ordered 4 el pastor tacos,... More

There are always lineups here, so get there at 5:55 just before it opens, and you should get a seat. If not, just forget it and try another day. Super food, really cheap.

This place is a MUST VISIT! These are my second favorite tacos in the WORLD. (My favorites being from a street vendor in Zona Rosa on Rio Hamburgo in Mexico City...25 pesos for 5 tacos). However, these tacos are not far from my favorites. This place is so good for any kind of visitor. If you're a family visitor, venture... More

The real deal! Great tacos and cold beer! It does not get any better! A person could easily over indulge on the tacos! We got a batch to go as well!

This is our 17th year in Vallarta and our first visit to Archie's Wok (hey, who goes to a Chinese restaurant in Mexico) A local set us straight so we gave it a try. What a marvelous dining experience. Archie's menu favors the flavors of SE Asia (Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore) Archie's is well worth visiting the next time you are... More
