Taqueria Vallarta's delicious authentic Mexican food is served in a clean, cheerful setting with friendly staff and quick service. The 20-table room is brightened by the large floor-to-ceiling murals painted by local artist Leo Dias. The menu is extensive, with choices for both meat lovers and vegetarians. Order your burritos, tacos and specialty plates to eat there or to go. Either way, you'll enjoy the food from Taqueria Vallarta, which was voted the best taqueria by Santa Cruzans in the Good Times and Metro from 1996 thru 2008.
