Place was empty for lunch. We were seated and waited over 15 minutes before I got up and went to the bar and asked for the manager. Service was terrible. Food was average. Based upon other reviews we will give it another shot, hoping it was an off day...

After reading other reviews raving about the food, I'd say that it was good, but THE best? The wait staff was very friendly, well dressed and super attentive. I ordered a beer and it was on the table in probably about a minute. Our food order arrived in less than 10 minutes and was well prepared. When the waiter warns... More

This particular establishment location does have outdoor seating and very friendly table service. Luncheon specials are affordable and well presented. I would appreciate a nice selection of real Mexican music.

The best Mexican food I've had so far. Being a vegetarian it's tough to find options. But this place had soooo many options and all they have is awesome... The salsa verde is awesome if you can take it hot. The ingredients were so fresh, that you could feel it in every bite. The left over quesadilla which I took... More

My husband and I go here at least once a week for lunch. The portions are huge and the price is cheap. The quality of the food is excellent and the service is great as well. Puerto Vallarta is one of our favorite lunch spots.

Ordered the fish tacos. They were very well prepared nicely grilled not fried, with nice salsa, slaw, with a mexican tartar sauce on the side with side of rice and refried beeans. The portion was large and very good.
