Vallarta's is actually inside a shopping mall which, when we went, looked like it was not doing well. Yes, the food isn't overly spicy which was fine with us. The menu is varied and we were greeted promptly and served quickly. Had the fried chile rellenos and chimichanga plate which was generous and delicious.

Everything about this restaurant was good, but our meal was not. The salsa was runny and had no flavor. I ordered the taco salad with beef and was very disappointed, texture was bad and also had no flavor. The staff, location and overall appearance was nice. The meal we had was not so good.

We were disappointed in our meal. There was no flavor. The staff and service was great, and the beer cold. Clean cute place and I would go there again and give them a second chance and order something with out the ground beef.

Vallarta’s Restaurant was very good with a flavor of traditional Mexican. The facility isn’t the greatest and it is stuck in an old mall. That is the only downside. The service was good and I recommend trying their Burritos. I had the Chipotle Burrito and it was great!

We ate here on a Monday night. It's in a mall, but that was OK... there was absolutely no one in the mall. The food was really good, the waitress was awesome (Margarita) and when the frozen margarita was lousy, she brought us one on the rocks that was fine. Fajitas for two had lots more meat than veggies and... More

This place is unfortunately going downhill. While the owners are nice the food and staff are not. This is really sad but with the overwhelming amount of Mexican food choices in Craig it's not worth the time or money.

Service is never really good here in the three years I have been going. Food is overpriced for the quality you get... runny beans, salsa and the food is all kind of bland even the chips. I do like the queso appetizer though!

Food here is far more expensive than it should be for the quality of what you receive. Service is very bad, if you want a refill on your drink be prepared to be completely ignored. 2 meals, drinks and an appitezer here should not be $50... Food not so great tasting either, salsa is very watery and chips tasted old... More

My wife suggested that we celebrate my birthday by going out for a steak tonight. I told her I would prefer to eat Mexican at Vallarta's. Once again we experienced an excellent meal with Chili Rellenos, burritos and tostadas. Their homemade salsa is the best I have ever had anywhere and our waitress was great. It's nice to have this...

My wife and I ate at Vallarta's. It's in a strip mall, which detracts somewhat from its ambiance, and the front room just inside, where we ate, isn't any better. The booths sit you so vertically upright that there is no way to relax over the meal. And the service was just a step above poor. The food was both... More
