“Authentic, yummy Mexican food with excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Tried out this place yesterday after passing by it so many times while vacationing in town. Doesn't look much from the outside and I actually thought no one was dining in. Turns out it was still busy for an early lunch (just after 11 am). The place was clean and the staff was very friendly. There were only two of them on the floor at the time, but it didn't feel as if I had to wait a long time for my food/service. Free chips and salsa + baked beans was a plus. Food was awesome and authentic. Had the tamales, three soft tacos, and my wife had chile rellenos and Coors beer. My mouth is watering just thinking about the yummy food we had yesterday! There was free wi-fi (just ask the manager for the password) so i checked them out on the internet. Turns out they were highly rated, so I'm glad we stumbled upon them. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone craving for Mexican food after having your chowder and clams and crab while vacationing at th coast. For under $20 for two people, we definitely got more than our money's worth!

“Great food and service and great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

We go to Lincoln City as frequently as we can and were glad to see Puerto Vallarta has opened again with the same great food and friendly service as before and with brighter, cleaner look to the ambiance. Before the fire, we would stop here on the way into LC to have dinner every time we would visit.

I had my usual favorite the "Burrito Fajitas" with steak. As usual it was fabulous and loaded with fajita steak. My wife and daughter ordered there usual favorites the Burrito Verde (Carnitas pork). Also, as usual, the chips and salsa also come a small plate of their wonderful refritos.

A family of four will leave here stuffed and satisfied for less than $50 (not including alcohol, of course).

“Speedy, gracious and filling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Even though the place was packed, the various wait staff were constantly refilling drinks and offering more chips while we decided what to order. The combination plates are huge with fresh toppings for the tostada and pretty standard enchilada sauce. They use all-white chicken breast meat that has been well seasoned. The beans and rice lack flavor, but if you want a stick to your ribs American-style Mexican place, the food is fresh and tasty. They even brought us extra dessert after we paid our bill when my mother asked. Overall, we were very satisfied and realized the place was packed for a reason.

“YES! They're back in business!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

When a fire destroyed this wonderful little restaurant, Lincoln City lost a gem. But after many months of rebuilding, THEY'RE BACK with the same wonderful food they've always served and a completely updated and beautifully decorated dining area. These people know Mexican food and serve what may well be the best on the coast (and the coast does have some very decent Mexican restaurants). They make their chili rellenos fresh every day. Their margaritas are excellent. I chose this restaurant for my own father's day dinner,. We were so happy that they have reopened we wanted to hug the staff!
