On Mondays they have really cheap margaritas. And of course the Mexican food is always very good. Service was excellent. Will return soon.

The food at Poblano's is excellent. They go to great lengths in their preparation and presentation to be different than other Mexican restaurant. Love going there EXCEPT their chips taste like they came off a grocery store shelf. They offer a Salsa bar, guacamole made table side, fantastic drinks, but it loses something because of the chips. I would give... More

We enjoyed our lunch date here. The tableside guacamole was very good. Great salsa bar, tacos, bean dip and great service. Going back this week for a double date with friends.

What a great place to eat! Our server Brittany was great and had quite a few recommendations for us, and everything we tried was delicious. We got there before happy hour ended so enjoyed a margarita for $3, the ABUELA’S GUACAMOLE could be a meal in itself, and the HOMEMADE CHURROS served with honey and chocolate will put a smile...

I tried a new dish they had on the menu. Chipotle shrimp. It came with shrimp covered in a sauce next to a lump of rice. It had 4 slices of (cold) zucchini 1 ring of red pepper (cold)and about a tablespoon of red (cold) cabbage. The worst Mexican meal EVER! The waiter asked how it was and I responded... More

My husband, brother and myself had lunch here. It was very good and our waiter was right on top of everything. We arrived shortly after they opened at 11:00am. The food was hot and delicious.

The last two visits to Poblanos have not been enjoyable, after years of good service. Our servers these last two visits have been slow and surly, the enchiladas barely warm and the refried beans watery, with everything very salty. I don't know what the problem is, but we see no reason to try it again.

I'm a regular..many visits. After trying the others from El Charolais, Amigos, Vegas Fiesta, Moe's, etc., Poblano's at I-26 and Boones Creek Road is my choice for Mexican food.

Description
Poblano's Mexican Grill and Bar has been family owned since its beginnings in 2004. Our family is steeped in restaurant tradition since 1977. The traditional food that we serve today is inspired by the Mexican food that was lovingly prepared in the home throughout childhood. Poblano's serves classic Mexican dishes along side new and interesting flavors. We offer warm and inviting service coupled with an eclectic atmosphere. While Mexican food may be our first priority, our margaritas and mixed drinks are distinctive, enticing, and well balanced. Buen Provecho!
