Vallarta is disgusting. Meat looks like dog food. I had bugs crawling on my table. Only reason it won-CHEAP!

Ouch. I've never eaten there, but can think of a few spots where how the food looks versus how it tastes are pretty far apart. Now if someone can tell me where the best al pastor is ...

Food is great! The have wonderful specials, and the service is fast and good. The owners are helpful if you need your food made a certain way. and they listen to all comments. The only bug I have ever seen there is a fly that got in the two doors from the patio. Great Place!

Best Authentic El Pastor is at Señor Piqué. They actually do it the traditional way with traditional spices. It isn't the more locally seen carnitas tossed with pineapple.

Great food & fast service! Many claim to be "authentic" Mexican food, but this is the place to go! Everything in the menu is reasonably priced compared to other Mexican restaurants in west county. Perfect place for a nice sit down dinner for 2 under $25.

Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out which comments are from the losers! :)
