Pablos probably makes other things, but the only reason I go there is for the burritos. They're made fresh at the counter, in front of you. The workers heat up the tortilla, and then begin adding in whatever ingredients you want. These include steak, pork, chicken, beans, rice, various salsas, etc. I think they must pack a couple of pounds... More

Ok, let me start by saying that the owner is wonderful! The staff are helpful and kind (sometimes my children are picky or unsure and the staff is patient and helpful). The portions are huge and nobody ever leaves hungry. I usually cannot finish mine, so I make 2 meals out of it. The cost is comparable with other burrito... More

Pablos is a lot like Pancheros or Chipotle, but locally owned. A burrito is good for two meals they're so big!

Went here for lunch and split a quesadilla with my husband. I was a bit unsure since I was pretty hungry, but it turned out to be the perfect amount of food. The quesadillas are BIG! It was so tasty and made fresh with fresh ingredients. This is not a fancy place, but the food is great quality!

Read the other reviews, so we gave it a try. Zero ambiance, or, as my review title says, reminiscent of a college town eatery. You walk up to the bar, order your food, get it and pay, find a table. A tiny bit grungy...long ago when I was a student we didn't care much as long as the food, portions,... More

Pablos is a hometown favorite! All their burritos are made with freshly chopped & grilled meats & veggies. Approximately 8 kinds of salsas are made fresh daily! SO great!

I love Pablo's! The chunky habanero salsa is so good! They have a fruit salsa each week, and bottled coke, which is the best.
