El Valle Mexican Restaurant
- Open Now
This restaurant is a find! If I could rate this 6 stars, I would. It looks unassuming from the outside but when you walk in, it's a friendly staff and spacious seats. You get the usual fare of combination platters but head for their specials and seafood. Very generous portions, the sauces are the right level of spice that pleasure your senses. I will be back soon t.o try more of their seafood.

This time around the food wasn't the greatest. Last time our experience was amazing. I plan to go again in hopes that the other day was just an off night for them. The staff is amazing and the inside is clean. The portions ARE amazing and staff is very attentive. So please don't take this as me putting down El Valle. I intend to go back and give them another chance.
My husband and I used to eat here all the time, but it's been several years since we had visited. I took my son there for lunch recently, and it everything still tasted exactly the same as I remembered. Really fresh and delicious food. I've tried many dishes on the menu, but I always go back to the beef super chimichangas. Just thinking about them is making me hungry!
Changing my review after leaving 5 stars in 2018: I come here about once every couple weeks, and I am going to say that the servers now are not as attentive as they used to be. They don't refill drinks until they've been empty for a while, and they take so long to bring a check (or pick up a check) that we have to end up going to the front counter to pay. Even if the restaurant is not busy. In the past 3 months I've been, the new server Santiago is the only one who has been on top of his game, despite being new to the restaurant. Try to request his section, he's great. (That being said, the Pollo Fundido is still the best item on the menu)
The food is flavorful and has promise of satisfaction, but when my plate comes and the enchilada is cold in the middle despite the hot plate it's served on? No. Same with the cheese stuffed poblano. I was warned about the heat of a plastic plate and even the Chile was cold, not even gonna say what the cheese was like. I've been here in the past. They can do this, they just need to realize...
