I saw a number of "iffy" reviews lately, but my friend and I decided to meet here anyway. We figured it would probably not be too crowded & we could linger & talk. We were promptly seated and presented with a basket of chips & salsa. Both were very good -- chips not too greasy and the salsa had a... More

We go there about once per year - usually because after a year's timeframe we forget how poor the experience is at Don Pablo's. Their food is below average: 1) chips can be too salty, too oily, too thin, too thick 2) their meats (we had fajitas) were very tough - we cut the meat into small pieces so our... More

Well all I can say is , It was pretty average. This the first time for both my wife and I. We were seated quickly and the chips and salsa were pretty good. Our meals came out in pretty quick time for a Saturday. Our meals though had a lot to be desired . My meal was very bland in... More

We stopped at Don Pablo's while shopping at Rookwood Commons. The service was good, and the food arrived quickly. I liked the Chimichurri tacos and my husband liked the fajita lunch special. The choices are a little better than similar restaurants with daily specials. The downside is the dust and dirt on light fixtures and walls at the booths. If... More

What a beautiful historical building, wasted on this restaurant. Dirty bathroom, poor lighting and so so service not worth the drive. I make my own Mexican dishes and these were lacking quality preparation...messy presentation like it was thrown together. Overall, ok food and service, but would not come back and cannot recommend to others. Many good restaurants in the area,... More

The meal was very good and the service was excellent. We just went today with family/friends. Have been there a few times and have always enjoyed it. The only comment I would make has to do with the web site. It does not do much good to have a 'menu' online without prices. We wound up getting a pretty good... More

We have dined here before and had very good food and service. Our servers name was Ricky Bledsoe. However this last time We visited was on a Saturday about 4pm. We had another server who seemed overwhelmed with her tables although it was not busy. Silverware on the table was dirty. Food arrived lukewarm and on dirty plates, my glass... More

Food and service were both terrible. Will not go back. Waitress was rude. We never even knew she was our server until after food and drink order was taken by another server. Tacos were soggy. Salad is better at Taco Bell!

Spur of the moment decision was a good choice at this restaurant. Located in the former Le Blond Factory where they manufactured precision metal working machinery prior to World War II, it has the atmosphere of a factory but the decor is Latin and adds an inviting flair to the restaurant. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated... More
