I've been to Mi Pueblito many times, and one problem I've never faced is bad service. If they're really busy, you may have to go to the register to get your bill and pay, but the service is really very good. The tacos carne asada are top notch, and there are other good choices on the menu - Mi Favorito... More

This place is a family style restaurant. The folks are friendly, the food is hot and tasty and their salsa was very good and the prices are what you would expect. Even though the food was served hot and was tasty, I ordered the burrito and enchilada dinner and the only difference between the two was that the enchilada had... More

We come from the Southwest and know the range of Mexican food. This was most likely TexMex. Lots of food, somewhat heavy, not spicy at all, lots of sour cream and fatness. The beef burrito was very good though it needed sauce, but the meat and onions were great. The rice was the excellent dryish Mexican style not the wet... More

Very good Mexican food, attractively served and moderately priced. We have eaten there several times and the food has been consistently good. Large menu. It was a busy Friday night and order was taken and food served promptly. Attention to us lagged after our food was server however, one star off. We missed the pay at the cash register sign... More

We've been in 3-4 times and have never been disappointed. The ingredients are fresh, well prepared, and very tasty. The potions are quite generous...so I have to be careful about what I order (think combo platters). The atmosphere and service are more than adequate.

My husband and i found Mi Pueblito in Winterset several years ago on Covered Bridge Festival weekend in October. The best time to go there on CBF weekend is either after the festival grounds close at 5 pm or wait til Sunday night so you can get a table. Food has always been good and plentiful here. My fave is... More

Very fine authentic food. Clean and bright with just enough music playing not to be distracting. Excellent margaritas. Tortilla chips were light and crisp and not salty. The salsa had a nice kick. I had quesadilla with beef beans and rice. Best rice ever! My husband had enchiladas mole. Great. Good family place. We sat across the street by the... More

Although there seemed to be a lot of people in the restaurant, Maybe it was just us but I've much better Mexican food and $3.50 for a side of guacamole is quite high.
