Great selection and flavor. We had 11 people for lunch and they were very efficient. They even gave my daughter a birthday dessert with sombrero and a birthday song.

“Poor service”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Ate here a two different times and no change with service , staff will walk by and will not assist if u need drink refills. Later the server comes and we say we need drinks then the waiter says I will be back in a minute which was 15min later. Chips cold, food not tasteful very bland. Will never return.

“Really fast service”
Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

Ya know how Jimmy John's commercials say "freaky fast delivery?" They have nothing on El Vallarta! My family and I always joke that they deliver the food before you order it.

Does that smack of premade food? Of course. But the food is good and the service is great, so why complain?

The chips and salsa are just okay (I think I'm spoiled by El Charros in Neosho - check out my review). But my family always finishes their food, and they have great enchiladas. My daughter loves their rice.

I eat here about every other month and my family really enjoys it.
