We have been enjoying the food and service at El Vallarta since they came to Joplin. We eaten there more times than I can count, and absolutely have never had bad service or a bad meal. Love this place!

The restaurant featured typical Tex-Mex menu with good prices. Wait staff was attentive. The restaurant could benefit from a face lift as the seating, tables, paint were looking worn.

Great lunch deals and friendly staff. We visit here about once a month for food and 32 Oz Dos Equis. For a couple, the bill is always under $20 before tip. Excellent place to eat, you should try it.

I have been here a million times (as well as the Miami OK location). The food is always fantastic. They serve some really good Mexican beers you can't really find at other places. Staff is always friendly.

We love this place! The arroz con pollo and mi favorito are fabulous. Also great for take out except they don't give you chips which is disappointing.

Typical menu, typical fare. Nothing special; nothing bad. There are at least three Mexican restaurants in Joplin I prefer.
