Great place to enjoy Mexican food and huge! margaritas! We stopped in and drank and ate at the bar- do the upgrade for the Margaritas, better tequila (we did the taste test- it's worth the extra buck!) The food is good and typical of a family restaurant

A place to get affordable south of the border style meals. Large portions for food and drink. Can get a $5 off card to use Monday through Thursday. Plenty of televisions at the bar for soccer, football, hockey and baseball.

The last two visits I've had at the Anderson Rd location have been boring to say the least. It seems as if they turn the AC off. So, it's hot and there have been flies in the building. Food is usually good but today I think they replaced the cheese dip and sauce with velvetta cheese - gross! Sad to... More

Vallarta's has a few locations around Tampa and they're generally pretty good. But I'll only remember one thing about our lunch at the Anderson Road location on May 26: the flies. Three of us had a later lunch and as soon as we sat down, the flies descended on us. Half the time was just trying to brush them away... More

For my daughter's birthday, she was allowed to choose what/where we ate. Our first stop didn't pan out as there was a 45 minute wait and with two hunger toddlers that was not going to fly. We finally found this Vallarta's location. We were seated promptly and our sever appeared shortly. He took our drink orders then brought us some... More

I'm not sure why this place has received so many negative reviews. Perhaps there has been a management change but I will tell you this is authentic southwest Mexican food. It is a bit spicier than the "gringo" fare in chain restaurants but that is what I expect from authentic Mexican food. The food was good, the server was attentive... More

Mexican food with decent portions, sized appropriate drinks and Servers with Great Character . Seating comfortable, view of the restaurant inside clean and decorated to boot. Loved the lighting around the bar area, particularly the boxed lighting. No rush service.

We had dinner here last night. The service was face and the people were friendly. The food had no taste at all. We ordered the carne asada (steak) plate and everything was fresh and hot but the food tasted as if there was no seasonings at all. The place was really busy so someone must like the food but we...

The service was terrible...we had to wait for a server to appear longer than others around us (different server) ... we had to ask for the chips and salsa... the building needs some help with noise buffering/sound proofing (loud noises everywhere) Don't eat outside UNLESS you can hear and don't mind talking over the airplanes flying in and out of...
