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.

Place was empty for lunch. We were seated and waited over 15 minutes before I got up and went to the bar and asked for the manager. Service was terrible. Food was average. Based upon other reviews we will give it another shot, hoping it was an off day...

After reading other reviews raving about the food, I'd say that it was good, but THE best? The wait staff was very friendly, well dressed and super attentive. I ordered a beer and it was on the table in probably about a minute. Our food order arrived in less than 10 minutes and was well prepared. When the waiter warns... More

This particular establishment location does have outdoor seating and very friendly table service. Luncheon specials are affordable and well presented. I would appreciate a nice selection of real Mexican music.
