We had lunch here, the steak quesadilla was the best I've ever had! My husband had the fajitas burrito, which was also excellent !

WE had been recommended this place by one workers at Indian Wells Resort. I figured they would know better (being Hispanic and being locals) better than just choosing a place because they had advertised in the local ads that end up at the hotel. This place in terms of taste, takes the cake. I thought for being in Indio that... More

The two entrees we tried were very good. In the combination plate that included a chicken enchilada and chile relleno, the enchilada was very good, and the chile relleno was okay. The sautéed shrimp entree was huge and very good. The restaurant is small, but the tables turn over quickly, so our wait was less than 30 minutes. The warm... More

I came to Indio for the annual Square Dance Festival at the Fairgounds. PVG was listed as #2 on Tripadvisor and was very close to the fairgrounds. When I arrived alone, no one acknowledged me standing at the entrance, for a long time, though several people did see me. It was not particularly busy. I ordered my favorite Mexican restaurant...

Great happy hour. Should add well drinks. Everything was so yummy! A little on the expensive side but well worth it and happy hour makes up for it. Very busy so get in early

After reading several great reviews of this restaurant, we decided to give it a try. Our first impression was not great as we had a 25 minute wait on a Thursday at 5:15 PM. While this might be considered a good sign (popular restaurant), the waiting area was very congested with very little seating while waiting. Once seated, we were... More

This restaurant has several locations. I have been to the one in Indio and also one on Cook in Palm Desert. My most recent visit was the Cook location. While the service can occasionally be less than great, the food is consistently good and authentic. The chips are always fresh and the salsa isn't too spicy.

This review is for Pueblo Viejo on Cook St Palm Desert. Great food and friendly professional staff. Helped us navigate an extensive menu and choose the right thing. Nice drinks and ambiance. Lots of locals so I think it represents a favourite spot. Will go back, for sure.

I've been here about half a dozen times - and it's been great food every time! Prepare for a wait in the evening, it's not the biggest place ever. Chips, salsa, etc. are excellent.

Thank Beth S
