“Great fajitas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Best fajitas we had all week during our vacation! open air restaurant, nicely decorated. Great tortilla chips & salsa brought to table. party of 6 all got fajitas & we all loved them! Had fried ice cream for dessert. Our waiter could of been a bit more attentive, but they were pretty busy. We overlooked it because we enjoyed our food so much. We will go back!

“Don't miss this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

5 adults and my 2 grandchildren went to dinner. We all agreed that it was the best frajitas we have had in Mexico so far. We actually tried a wide variety and agreed that the shrimp were awesome and won the evening.
The margaritas were top shelf and large.
The price was actually very reasonable and by the time we left, the place was hopping and lines were at the door. Make a reservation if you are eating after 7pm

“The food was very good and plentiful.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

Our party of four all ordered steak/chicken fajitas and they were delicious! The 'mini-ribs" appetizer were wonderful as were the strawberry margaritas. The price was reasonable, service good, but it took a while to get our checks. As the restaurant is located very near a river, I suggest a good insect repel for your legs if you are wearing shorts. Recommended by our party of four.

“customer loyalty is not a priority”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

We live year round in Vallarta bringing many new customers. This guy refuses to give any sort of discount to our very large table. So we just go to the Fajita Republic in Old Town Vallarta and get better treatment and always a discount regardless if we are 2 or 22 people!!

“More Tex-Mex than Mex, But Very Good Nonetheless”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Like the title says, this is not the most authentic option in Nuevo but it is a great place to hang out with friends/family. The food is solid, and really the fajitas presidente and neptuno are really quite good. Also, try the queso fundido for an appetizer, it's so rich. Don't experiment too much with this menu, stick to the classics: fajitas, enchiladas, etc. Great pina colada's, mojitos, and margaritas. Ate there twice while on vacation, dinner for 5 the first time with only a few drinks: $120 USD, second dinner was for 6 and had many appetizers and drinks: $250.
