Great ambiance-started with an awful salad-some awful tasting lettuce( you know the kind that tastes like its fermenting in a bag) ? With some cheese thrown on it-no good! Then i had shrimp fajitas -just ok with a paltry side of sour cream and the...More

My meal was 4 stars. Grilled jalapeños were VERY hot, and beans were not runny or soupy. My husband's meal was a 3. Fish tacos were bland with too much lettuce, and the tortillas disintegrated too easily. The chips were good, but the salsa was...More

Live music added to the atmosphere. Good and drinks are generous and tasty. Prices are very reasonable. This is a good restaurant for families as well as couples out for the evening

I ordered the Ciete for lunch, which includes a chicken enchilada and a smaller rolled tortilla--also chicken. The flavors were good with some rice and refried beans, but I doubt they used more than two tablespoons of the shredded chicken. Felt like the old commercial:...More

Good Tex-Mex restaurants are hard to find in this area. And Mi Pueblo doesn't change that opinion. The queso with meat was bland, and the consistency was like mashed potatoes. The grliled chicken quesadilla was equally flavorless, with skimpy sides of sour cream and tomatoes....More

I can't say the food is authentic or outstanding but its always hot and edible. I would say it's above average and so is the service.

I rarely meet a Mexican meal I don't like until tonight. The old saying go where the parking lot is full was not a truism here. I will give you that the place was packed but these people must never have had a good Mexican...More
