Great food and ambiance.

This is a great place to eat with lots of choices and the margaritas are excellent as well. We have never been there when it wasn't busy or when we drive by. Everything we have had to eat there has been delicious and we have gone several times while visiting the area. The only request I would... read more

This is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants; we go to the one in Indio on HWY 111, near Monroe. During the week it's not that crowded but on weekends you better get there before 5:00 p.m. or there will be at least a 30-45 minute wait. The food is excellent, I usually have the beef fajitas, but sometimes I... More

The service is superb regardless of when you go and how busy the restaurant is. Staff all look and are professional. Greatest selection of Mexican entrees and combinations. Food is always of the highest quality. Chili Verde Enchiladas are incredible.

In desperate need of Mexican food, this place was recommended by several people. We went to the old establishment, in Indio. This is a comfortable restaurant, very crowded, no reservations except for parties of 6 or more, and usually packed. The chips and salsa were ok, nothing too great, and the margaritas just ok as well. We talked to the... More

I'm not a lover of Mexican food but I'll make an exception in Pueblo Viejo's case. Just had some simple beef enchaladas that were very good. I'll go back.

We spend one week each year in Indio and make it a point to eat at Pueblo Viejo. Great drinks and excellent food plus friendly, quick service are what they've consistently delivered every time we've been there.

Stopped by Indio and was looking for a good Mexican place to eat lunch and did a TA search. This was top rated and did not disappoint. Place was packed (a good sign) Friendly service, good food and generous portions. Nice home made salsa. Had the #9 and could have shared. For sure will be back.

We visited Pueblo Viejo Grill over Christmas break while staying in La Quinta. The restaurant was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. Upon arriving we found parking very easily. The restaurant and lobby is small; on the night we visited the lobby had 3 tables waiting to be seated. You can wait in the lobby or you are... More

Great happy hour specials, food and drinks were good. Service was good also. We had 2 drinks ea. and steak fajitas and a steak quesadilla. Very tasty and paid under $40, not counting the tip.

We ate here on Tuesday after seeing good reviews. We were so delighted that we came back on Friday. Although we did have an hour wait it was so worth it! Alejandra was our waitress and she is fantastic!
