Best Mexican food in the area. Tough to find the restaurant the first time, but you will never forget it. Great food and good times abound.

Amazing experience. Starts with fantastic chips and salsa, and somehow got even better with the entrées. Something for everyone, from vegetarian offerings to kid friendly fare. My chimichangas were incredible, with fantastic rice, beans, and guac salad. A definite destination to return to on our next trip through.

I went for an afternoon lunch and stopped by this place with my Mom. The atmosphere is great and decor is very much mexican and fun. It could be a great place to go with friends or business associates or to stop in for a date the ambience is more romantic. The Salsa was a little bland for my personal... More

Sorry to disagree with most of the other reviews. Sorry because our server was so earnest and attentive, and the decor was authentic and colorful. But the food was poor -- my quesadilla tasted like it was filled with cheese whiz. And the place just didn't seem clean. Everything I touched felt greasy. The dining area was messy; within clear...

What a find.....OK, so we asked shopkeepers about a place that served good food and had a bar. Amazing experience across the board for the party of six. Atmosphere that included handmade colorful chairs....no two alike. And comfortable. The TV's were captioned in Spanish. The piped-in music was traditional and for this writer so very appropriate. The service was attentive,... More

We had a goal of hitting Zorbaz for a birthday party, but it was jammed. We headed back to Park Rapids and decided to give Vallartas a try. We are SO glad we did. Awesome Mexican food - great menu - super staff and even though they were full, they found room for our party of 10! Great place -... More

Nothing about this place will wow you. Pretty average Mexican food. If you are a beer drinker this is one of the few Mexican places that only serves bottled beer. The two best food items at our table were the 3 enchiladas and carnitas chimichanga. Overall just not much more to say than very average food and service.

Sunday lunch Memorial day weekend, no waiting, immediate seating at 1PM. Hostess greeted us at the door and sat us immediately. Was very friendly. Chips and Salsa were on the table almost as soon as we sat down. I had two chicken enchiladas with rice(#18 on lunch menu). My wife had 2 veggie burritos with rice. The food was out... More
