We have been waiting for them to re-open after their move (same Plaza just different building). We went in for lunch recently and the food was wonderful as usual. This was our first time for lunch and thought the portions would be less but it didn't seem like they were smaller. Excellent food and great service and all of the... More

My fiancé and I have been enjoying this place for years. We usually go after a long days work to enjoy some good food. Server/manager Jade is very nice. Service is great. Food is great. Fajitas and chips and salsa are delicious. We take our friends here too. They will be reopen soon or if not already opened during the... More

The last two times we have gone they have been closed. We just tried last night and there was a padlock on the door?!?! This is actually getting ridiculous. They had just closed for moving and now again? We have no clue if they will reopen, which sucks because this place has great food!

We've eaten here several times and each time the service and food is great. Never had a complaint and the prices are very reasonable. Fresh ingredients and potent drinks. Try the bubbling hot Mocajete bowl. It's a volcanic rock mortar and pestle bowl heated to a high temp with your choice of chicken seafood or beef along with cheese, peppers,... More

Best green chili enchiladas I've had since I left Tucson in 1969. My companion's taco salad was great also. Crisp shell, not at all greasy like some we've had. Not much atmosphere but that's better than annoying Mexican music that some restaurants have. Enthusiastic server who checked on us fairly often but wasn't annoying.

Three of us went to this restaurant 2 months ago hoping that we could find some decent Mexican food within 30 minutes of our home....NOPE!!! Its just not good...not the salsa...not the fajita's....not the burritos...not even the margaritas...Not sure how you take flavor out of re-fried beans but somehow they cracked the code!!!

Ever since leaving El Paso, TX, my wife (a native El Pasoan) and I continue to search for the flavors we both love from northern Mexico and the area around El Paso. Pueblo Viejo comes pretty close and for now is the best we've found in this part of Florida. Plus, while speaking with the manager, they are willing to... More

I am confused by the low reviews as this is one of the best Mexican restaurants in town, in my opinion. The chips are crisp and flavorful and never ending! The food is served promptly and is delicious and fresh! As a vegetarian, I have unlimited options here! We love it here!

When I walked in I was impressed about the soothing decor for a Mexican restaurant and the service was very nice so I felt very encouraged about eating here for the 1st time, was I wrong! I ordered a Chili Relleno lunch special with Guacamole salad and a side Taco. The Taco was room temperature and the bottom was soggy... More

I just had lunch there today - food was tasteless. Not horrible, rotten - but tasteless. I had soft tacos with a side of rice. The taco meat had absolutely no seasoning or flavor. Really a disappointment. I have eaten there twice before and i would rate it those times "ok", but this was less than "ok". I don't know... More
