“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

We just spent a week in Neuvo Vallarta and had heard good things about the FR. It was only a short 12 minute walk from the Occidental where we were staying. The ambiance is great and service was spectacular. The waiter gave us our appetizer (Mayan cheese sticks) on the house. So good! My husband had the Fajita on the rocks which he couldn't stop raving about. I had the shrimp fajita and loved them and all the toppings that came with it. So much food but we couldn't waste a morsel it was that good. So good we went back for our last night in Mexico! Highly recommend this restaurant especially if you tire of the buffets on the resort like we do.

“FAJITA REPUBLIC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

We stopped there on June 30th looking for a place to celebrate my boyfriends 50th birthday and were sold right away just by the atmosphere! You are in the jungle (almost) next to a river, reminded me of when we were in Costa Rica! We just had a drink at the bar but loved the service so we came back the next night for dinner! Had a wonderful time, and one of the best meals I have ever had! The service was excellent and like I said before, the atmosphere was perfect! Absolutely loved it!!!! Want to go back today!!! Great people!

“Large Margaritas and Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

We found this restaurant by chance. A friend recommended we go to the Dinamita for its good food but it was closed and the Fajita Republic was next door. The smell of good food and lively atmosphere enticed to go in and we were glad we did. The food was great, service quick even though the place was full. Another thing that impressed us was the large Margaritas where you could taste the tequila. This was a nice change from the resort style margaritas where you felt you were just drinking lemonade. That week we went back twice after that first visit for the good food and the reasonable cost. Even the taxi ride was fun. It gave us a time to practice our Spanish. A visit to this restaurant is a must if you are in the area.

“Flaming Fajitas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Love the lights at dark. But we love the flaming fajitas more. You can never go wrong ordering the fajitas with a beer and enjoying the view.
