We decided to try this place since it was near home and it was a spur of the moment decision . I guess hindsight really is 20/20 . To start they somehow managed to burn tortilla chips . And still served them. The guacamole was sub par. Very little flavor and way to much jalapeno . I had the enchiladas... More

I don't recommend this place. The food was horrible. Even the guacamole was gross. How do you mess up guacamole?? Service was ok, but I would recommend Taco bell over this place any day.

I was not a big fan of their other location but my wife wanted to try their other location. And I am glad we did! The food was great and so was the service.

We had a party of 8. We did not call in and they were able to accommodate us immediately. The server recommended several items off the menu which our party gladly ordered. The food was delicious. 4 of our diners had margaritas (and they said they were delicious)

My wife and I went with my father and stepmother. Estelle's used to be the Brandon neighborhood treat for Mexican but they shut down, and my folks found Vallarta's. I had been here before but the building used to be a steak and seafood place many years before. The food was good as was the conversation.

I am Mexican food obsessed and this place is the perfect local place to go when I'm craving authentic Mexican food. This place has great service and they give you free chips & salsa ... Yum! I especially love their white queso and their chicken enchiladas. They also have great giant strawberry margaritas that are bigger than your face :)... More

Make your own tacos, and eat a variety of foods--chicken soup, tamales of various types, burritos, collards, rice, etc. Best Mexican restaurant ever been to, nice décor.
