In a hurry, on a lunch break from a nearby training, my friends and I decided to to to Vallartas. The place was busy (partly because of the training nearby, and partly because it is a popular neighborhood eatery). We found parking easily - there is a lot of it! The server was very polite, and helpful - rushing our... More

First the positives about our dining experience... the restaurant is located in a strip center and easy to find; very clean with Mexican music playing to add to the ambiance; very attentive and friendly service; and cold cervezas. We were a party of four and not one of our party was "wowed" by our meal. One member in our party... More

I'm so offended by the previous review. Must have been a competitor who wrote it. I'm from NM and I know good Mexican food and this is it! It's so authentic and delicious. The restaurant is so clean too. The people are great. Again, you must try this food. I love it!

I love eating here. When stuck in Anchorage, it's the next best thing to beachside restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. The food is tasty and the portions are large and competitively priced. The proprietor, Angel, is very friendly and happy to chat when it's not too busy.

Holy frijoles - what a find in Anchorage! My family from Chicago loved this place so much the first time that we went back yesterday for a second round. We were not disappointed. This authentic Mexican restaurant is truly the hidden gem in Anchorage. But you wouldn't know it by looking at the restaurant from the outside. It has a... More

We stumbled on Vallartas by accident one afternoon, trying to get in a lunch before an afternoon class. The shopping center area where the restaurant is located made us think twice, as it seemed a bit dingy, but we tried it anyway. The restaurant appears to be run by three or more men and it was squeaky clean. There was... More

Vallartas is a relatively new Anchorage restaurant - at least at its current location. We thought it was great to have a new restaurant open in the neighborhood, but never visited until recently when some friends were having lunch there and invited us along. We will not - under any circumstances - be going back. Like any city, there's a... More
