Always good Mexican food, fast and competent service every visit. Menu choices included beef tacos, a taco/ enchilada combo, and chicken quesadillas. The taco shells were crispy, beef was tasty, chopped lettuce and tomatoes fresh. The quesadillas were great and plentiful enough to make a "take-home" meal for the next day.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant! It is so good! Authentic Mexican food with huge portions! Their margaritas are phenomenal! It is the only place I will go for Mexican food.

My wife is very picky when it comes to Mexican food, especially tacos and burritos. She loved both and I had a great combo reasonably priced. We were in CT for a wedding and we were happy to find a great authentic Mexican restaurant.

Puerto Vallarta is a well-run restaurant serving tasty (if sllghtly bland) Mexican food that is always dependably good. The service is warm and friendly, the place is usually packed with happy diners, and the food is invariably tasty and satisfying. If you are looking for absolutely authentic Tex-Mex like you've had in the Southwestern U.S. or northern Mexico, this will... More

We love this place! The margaritas and warm chips with homemade guacamole are just delicious, as are the fajitas. The atmosphere is lively, colorful and fun, service always good.

What fun! Not only was the food excellent, but also the staff made it very fun for my daughter's birthday celebration! We ate, she wore the Mexican hat, was serenaded, and enjoyed a yummy birthday dessert! One of our favorite spots in Middletown!

Maybe the menu is modified ever so slightly to accommodate gringo tastes, but the food is good for Central Connecticut Mexican. The service is always warm and friendly and accommodating and the crowded restaurant is always full of people enjoying the food and themselves--it's a happy place to be.

We have some friends who go here for every single family event and love it. We're not big on Mexican food because it is often just a lot of beans and spicey stuff and kind of mushy. We decided to try this out last month and what a surprise. It's in a strip mall near the movie theatre so not... More

I was alone. Wanted to sit at bar to eat but there was no bar to sit at. So sat by myself in a booth. Nice atmosphere. Gave me a large basket of chips and salsa. I was wondering why they would give that many chips to one person. Then wondered if they recycle the chips from table to table..... More
