The new location is nice, big, and bright. The service is slow and inconsistent at best. They seem to be in a hurry to do nothing. Pretty standard fare with fajita's being their go to dish. Fairly bland with nothing to set this place apart...More

This has always been one of our favorite Puerto Vallarta restaurants but lately there seem to be others that are passing it by. Still great food, service and atmosphere though and we'll always visit at least once each trip.

I'm from Texas. We set a high standard for fajitas, ribs, and service. We are in PV in the low point of the off season. Restaurants are largely empty, while many have closed until the hordes return. It would be understandable if owners ran on...More

We live 3 blocks away & go at least twice per month. Fajitas and appetizer menu is great. I have tried all the easy bar drinks and have yet to find one done well. Margarita , mojito, gin/tonic, all bad . Don't get the BBQ,...More

My wife and I enjoyed many fine meals over our eight day vacation in March. From the perfection of breakfast at Fredy's Toucan to the upscale Vista Grille on the beach we consistently succeeded in finding fine food. Our lunch, including drinks, fajitas and dessert...More

We've been walking by Fajita Republic for quite some time now. The first time we saw this restaurant, we showed up about 5 minutes before they were scheduled to open (apparently) because when we walked in, we were told to come back in 5 minutes...More

The atmosphere is lovely, open air with low lighting and right on a street filled with visitors and strolling musicians. Our dinner, though, was a big disappointment. Over done steak, watery black bean soup that was basically inedible, and tasteless rice and beans. My husband...More

Been to PV a dozen times. First time eating here. Pleasantly surprised by the quality, amount and cost. I had the mixed fajita plate with shrimp, beef and chicken. Under $10 American with all the side dishes. Great favor and lots of food. Our friends...More

I was home late and wasn't that hungry (but needed dinner) one evening and stopped by here as I LOVE the decor and the lights inside & outside. The place looks beautiful. As I was eating very late, the restaurant was nearly empty. The staff...More

We go there at least once every year, so probably 8-9 times, and have never had a problem, but also go by mid-November and the Winter rush, so have never had to wait more than 15 minutes for a table...
