Fairly standard Mexican food in a rather cliche setting. Good portions for a fair price with a waitstaff that is usually very enthusiastic.

Every time we come to Connecticut, we come to this restaurant and we are never disappointed! The food is fresh the service is wonderful and the whole atmosphere is really authentic. We live in New York but this is probably one of the best Mexican restaurants that we ever go to. Be sure to get the table side made guacamole,... More

Located on the Berlin Turnpike next to McDonalds, parking is plentiful. We arrived right before the dinner rush -around 5 on a Saturday-and were seated immediately. Right after we were seated, it was packed in the waiting area until we left. Service was efficient and friendly, but rushed because every table was full. This location can use a little spiffing...

We had a great experience at Puerto Vallarta! I say experience because the food and service were great, but they also had a mariachi band performing throughout the restaurant the night we were there and it really added to the ambiance. Ole!

I was pleasantly surprised by the both the atmosphere and food. Great table side guacamole! Good service. Very large portions. The reason for my <5 rating was due to overall quality: e.g. margaritas made with mixes not fresh fruit/juices. I'd sacrifice portion size to improve quality/freshness but that's me :) Overall very satisfied though.

Best Mexican restaurant in the Harford Area. Staff is so friendly. Alex is out waiter and he is the best! So much food for the money and quality food at that. I give them 10 Gold Stars. Always busy so you know it is top of the line.
