Placed a take out order. Service was friendly and quick. Beef in burrito was bland, but cheese sauce was good. Portions were large.

Not the best Mexican restaurant in town. Food was okay but nothing special and the wait staff didn't seem that interested in us. The have another location in Stuarts Draft, Gran Puerto that is much nicer.

On the surface it seems like your average generic Mexican restuarant. However, their food seems somehow better than the norm. Their staff is friendly and accomodating. Always look forward to their Flan for dessert if they are not sold out due to popularity.

Have been dining here at least 16 years or more. Same fine management-who will go far and beyond the expected to be fair to their customers. Seems like a very low turnover in employees, which is so unusual these days. Their food is very similar to most Mexican restaurants, yet but seems somehow just a cut above-it may be their... More

I like that the servers are often humming or singing along with the music! The food was well seasoned and somewhat interesting but I suspect the ground beef is not a great quality. it has that superfine grind that is often associated with pink slime meat. Also the macho service makes women feel unwelcome at times.

Have been here literally over 100 times maybe quite a bit more than that. Food is simple and good, always fresh and hot, always consistent. Service is always good, friendly but inobtrusive. Salsa is basic, not chunky, made fresh everyday. Excellent prices and clean well-maintained facility...also service always fast. You can actually sit down and eat lunch here in a... More

We ate here on a trip to the Shennandoah Valley at Christmas. The food was typical Tex-Mex, but eas done nicely and the service was quick and friendly.. No complaints. A great family site with plenty of good and reasonable food.

Our daughter was visiting her cousin at UVA. She spent the night with her at her college apartment so my husband and I decided to get a hotel rather than drive back to Hampton Roads. The closest vacancy we could find was in Waynesboro. Turned out to be good though. We just Googled restaurants and found El Puerto. We love... More
