Special food served with pride

Each dish at this family-run restaurant is prepared with different sauces appropriate to the individual, authentic taste of the region. Supervision and love of the food is evident in every bite. The atmosphere and service guarantee a very satisfying experience.

The first time we went to Pueblo Viejo the food was good, the prices in line with the food and the service was also good, none of it was the same the second time around. We will give Pueblo Viejo a third try but if dissapointed we will not recommend it to anyone.

The service is fabulous but as far as flavor or me saying oh yes let's go there? No not my first second or third choice for Mexican food. Although its... More

Stumbled upon this while looking through reviews of places to eat while we were in Palm Desert. The fajitas were the best I have ever had. The margaritas were fantastic. I would highly recommend eating here. YUM!

My wife and I were in Indio recently and were looking for Mexican food. I was at the Roger Dunn's in Indio and asked the people working in the store, "Who has the best Mexican food around?" Without any hesitation both people said Pueblo Viejo Grill. They gave me directions and we headed in that direction. It was mid-afternoon when... More

Recommended by the resort we stayed at in Indio. Definitely a good place to go. The food was excellent and exceptional. Menu had lots of choices from Enchiladas to fajitas to quesadillas and good margaritas too! The sauce on the enchiladas was a house specialty. Very delicious. Portions were generous and could not eat it all. We went at 8pm... More
