I first ate at this restaurant in Grove then it moved or opened a second one in Joplin. The food I think is excellent. I think it is one of the two better ones in Joplin.

We were staying in the middle of nowhere and had a craving for mexican food. After looking at several options nearby online along with their reviews, we made a 30 minute drive to Joplin to eat dinner at El Vallarta.

The restaurant featured typical Tex-Mex menu with good prices. Wait staff was attentive. The restaurant could benefit from a face lift as the seating, tables, paint were looking worn.

Great lunch deals and friendly staff. We visit here about once a month for food and 32 Oz Dos Equis. For a couple, the bill is always under $20 before tip. Excellent place to eat, you should try it.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the outstanding service. Didn't expect it from the prices on the menu. Our waiter was extra specail to cater to our two tykes.

The food is not 5 star, but was great for an inexpensive lunch with friends. Servers were very attentive and helpful! They have a very large menu with LOTS of options,... More
