I’ve lived in different parts of the country & El Vallarta does a outstanding job serving up excellent Mexican food. Tonight we had the Fajitas Vallarta for Two (a favorite). It’s fajitas with shrimp & scallops - wonderful! In addition their chips & salsa are...More

They have a great base! Location is good, everyone is friendly, generous with the chips. The margaritas are off. Not sure what it is, just not right. I've tried on a few occasions, can't figure it out. Either way, they have a full bar, so...More

Chips and salsa were good. Entrees were ok. I've definitely had better but I've had worse too. The prices are not too bad. Expansive menu with lots of choices, but nothing stood out as must have.

Horrible experience. Our food arrived cold. Food was not of good quality or taste. Customer Service left much to be desired. I will never visit this restaurant again nor will I recommend it.

Had awesome menu items. Portions are large for the money. Fajitas for one was enough for 2 minimum. Super Burrito was plentiful Service was great. Staff was attentive and very helpful.

What a menu! We enjoyed a variety of entrees from seafood enchiladas to fajitas. The chips and salsa are tasty. Quick service and great happy hour! It very similar to most Mexican restaurants so nothing spectacular that makes it stand out.

We have eaten at El Vallarta several times but the last one will probably be just that: the LAST one. I recall when this restaraunt first opened and I recognized well cooked, authentic mex-tex food. But somehow that has changed. The waitstaff are still friendly...More

We dined here with another couple for the first time. Our portions were all large and delicious! My husband couldn't even finish his chalupa fajita. The crumbled beef in the tacos and enchiladas had a good flavor and most importantly (for me) it was not...More
