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: "Where's the meat?" The server was nice and the manager even asked if we were... 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. On the positive side, the atmosphere is nice.

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 meal. I sat at the bar so I could get right in. The bar is... More

The parking lot was full but when we entered we were seated right away. Chips and salsa appeared before we could get seated. The waiter was johnny on the spot with menus and he arrived with drinks promptly, In a matter of a few minutes our selections arrived, hot and prepared to perfection. Been here many times and the food... More

We came on a Friday night. With the snow birds in town it was packed, but the service was fast, and we got seated relatively soon. We ordered the "El Conquistador" margarita and it was huge and delicious. Our chips and salsa came almost as soon as we got seated, and the chips were fresh hot and the salsa was... More

Two years later and the food is still average. the staff was exceptional, even the manager came around and asked how things were. The food was nice and hot. the food arrived shortly after we ordered which was a surprise as the place was crowded. If you want a pleasant meal with music, Monday night is the time to go... More

We'll definitely return to this place for Mexican food. It's very busy, but the wait time is not too bad. Once you order they bring your yummy food very fast! This is a good place to put on your list. Very popular with locals.

We arrived around 5:30 on a Saturday night and had a 30 minute wait for 5 people. When seated, service was prompt, bringing us chips and salsa to start and our orders came out pretty quickly. Most chose combo platters, all were happy with their choices. Decent quality, very nice ambiance, and good service. Definitely will go again.
