I was first introduced to this restaurant about 2 years ago. I fell in love with the food. I grew up on Mexican food, so I know good Mexican food when I encounter it. I took some relatives who were visiting from Michigan. They too loved it as well. We go there every time they come to visit. My daughter... More

I move down here over 2yrs ago and at first the food was really good. We loved to go on Wed as they had food & drink specials. Not to mention a nice mid-week dinner date. A few months ago, something changed. Not sure if they are under new management or what but the taste/quality is awful. And who doesn't... More

Not impressed. Food was cold and runny in a plate of water from reheating frozen food. You could tell they definitely have a problem with service to non Latino customers. I would not return.

When we are in town we eat here a lot. Fast, friendly service. My favorite is the pollo con crema. Cheese sauce is a great starter. They bring out chips and salsa as you arrive.

I thought no way, we decided to search and we found El Valletta so happy we went. Food and service were excellent. Friendly staff and prices won't leave your bag empty. Definitely will return.

We eat here all the time - at least once a month. One of my favorite places to get authentic Mexican food.

We have been to the main restaurant in Monroe, and were quite pleased to find that they opened an "El Vallarta Express in Waxhaw. They opened 9 years ago and we were among their first customers. It is nice to see that they are expanding to another storefront. They are very accommodating to people's dietary conditions. I am particularly fond... More
