Love this joint! The price is fair for the amount of delicious, authentic Mexican food you get. The ambiance and environment also feels authentic. The salsa they serve pre-meal is a tad spicy, which I appreciate. Go for the Queso Fundido as an appetizer. Very delicious melted, caramelized cheese atop chorizo, or beef if you choose.

Been coming here since they opened-years. Uniformly great food. I lived in Guadajara 3 yrs, so I know authentic . This is authentic. Some Mex/Tex favorites, but many specials. Can dial heal up or down. Modelo Negro beer-hard to find. House chips are hot and crisp- ask for spicy salsa, and watch out!. Table side guacamole is fantastic.

My server was not particularly friendly. I asked for what he would say was the most authentic item on the menu. When it came, I told him I didn't find it authentic, it had no spice. He responded by saying "Well, the market here does not like spice"... Wow. Sorry, but I lived in Mexico City for 2 years.....LOVE authentic... More

Puerto Vallarta is a real Mexican restaurant, food, music, staff, etc. Never disappointed. For a special treat order the table- side prepared Guacamole and fresh made tortilla chips. Bring an appetite, you will need it.

I wasn't expecting Puerto Vallarta to offer diverse starters and eclectic Day of the Dead decor, in Avon no less. Service was prompt, bathrooms were clean, explanation of the menu was detailed. We ordered a zombie and peach margarita (frozen). I was surprised that they were served in matching glasses. The veggie burrito entree was as you might expect, and... More

We come to this restaurant when we are in town visiting family. We used to enjoy the Happy Hour. Service has gotten so slow in the bar that we won't be coming back on our next visit. The last two times we were there our food order was wrong and it took forever to get the bartender's attention. The new... More

It's time for a new bartender. All of the renovations are not going to help business if you keep that guy behind the bar. He is slow and rude. We used to love happy hour at this restaurant. We rarely go anymore because of him. When we do, the food is good, but the service in the bar is terrible.... More

Really great food and service. We had a quesadilla which was huge and delicious, a combo meal and a burrito with wonderful tomatillo salsa. Loads of fresh chips with homemade salsa. We were really pleased with the quality and the price point of our meal. Great stuff!

Do not get turned off by the fact that the building is an old pancake house, or that the interior looks a little worn. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. The service is friendly and prompt, but not rushed. Terrific for families given a very varied menu. Also good for small gatherings. Yet, my wife and I also... More
