El Vallarta may not be the very best Mexican you will ever eat, but it is good Mexican food. The staff is usually friendly and fast. They have all the traditional Mexican dishes at a fair price.

Excellent service on a Saturday afternoon! Seated promptly, clean table where chips and salsa arrived minutes after we sat down! Thin and crisp authentic fresh made chips great with their house salsa! I ordered a lunch plate of pork verde burrito with double beans! My husband ordered a dinner plate with shrimp chimichangas rice and beans. The dinner plate is... More

I always enjoy coming here. Its a 30 minute drive but the food and service make it worth while. Plus the overall atmosphere is very relaxed. The menu items offer variety & the portions are generous.

I used to go to El Vallarta 2-3 lunches per week some time back. It is now my second favorite Mexican restaurant in Danville. I still enjoy going there and the food is still good.

Great place for a reasonably quick lunch while still getting a great meal, preceded by some great chips and salsa. Wide variety on the menu - but all is great, with ice cold tea and all the refills you can stand. Great service, clean environment, tasty food.

Attempted to eat there today with my family. The staff rushed around as if it was closing, but it was lunch time! One man had a load of drinks barging in between the person I was talking to, asking to take something out of his hand. I had food in my hand as he interupted. He was so rude. Then... More

The first attempt at another nearby place was a disaster - and unfortunately EV isn't much better. Food is mediocre at best, but they seem to be popular, so I guess that must be a commentary on what people in Danville consider decent Mexican food!

Great shrimp chimichanga - best I've ever had! Nice atmosphere and great service. The prices are appropriate and a fun place to eat. Decent parking - no issues.
