- Cuisines: Seafood, Mexican, Steakhouses
NileGuide Expert Says:
The best fajitas in town can be found at Fajita Republic. They have tons of salsas, sauces, and flavors for anyone, so there’s no excuses if you cannot find something you could enjoy there. They have a variety of different meats, or you can go vegetarian.
Fajita Republic is consistently popular -- and deservedly so. It has hit on a winning recipe: delicious food, ample portions, welcoming atmosphere, and low prices. The specialty is, of course, fajitas, grilled to perfection in every variety: steak, chicken, shrimp, combo, and vegetarian. All come with a generous tray of salsas and toppings. This "tropical grill" also serves sumptuous barbecued ribs, Mexican molcajetes with incredibly tender strips of marinated beef filet, and grilled shrimp. Starters include fresh guacamole served in a giant spoon and the ever-popular Mayan cheese sticks (breaded and deep-fried). Try an oversize mug or pitcher of Fajita Rita Mango Margaritas -- or another spirited temptation. This is a casual, fun, festive place in a garden of mango and palm trees. A second location in Nuevo Vallarta, across from the Grand Velas Resort, is drawing equal raves with the same menu and prices.
