Delicious!

Our family of four ate lunch at Pablo's while on vacation. The food tasted fresh and was generous in portion. If you like Margaritas, the Organic Margarita is "skinny", but very good! Service was wonderful. Very friendly wait staff.

I meant to have a quick Taco Tuesday lunch with the kids. 40$ later at 10$ a plate for a taco, beans and rice I was sorry we didnt just buy street food and sit in the rain. Drink glasses never refilled not even once. Kids meal was $4 and didnt include a beverage. Rice tasted good but the peas... More

Pablo's was recommended to us by a bartender at another restaurant and we were very glad we took that recommendation! Not only was the food the best we've had outside of Mexico, but the margaritas were to die for! The service was excellent and the atmosphere was cheerful and fun. We will definitely be back next time we are in... More

The food is truly delicious made with high quality fresh ingredients. It is locally family owned and operated. The owner was actively in the restaurant on the night we dined with them and he truly made sure everyone had an enjoyable meal. The margaritas were fresh handmade and absolutely delicious. If you are a Mexican food and Margarita fan, then... More

I gre up in California and lived in Spain. I have never had Mexican food this good. If you like margaritas, this is the place. With over 100 tequilas behind the bar, you can call your own poison or take a recommendation from the master (Pablo). The food is as generous as it is good. One locals secret--look for the... More

This is one of our regular places. We always have great food and great service. The staff remembers us and always gives us something special to acknowledge our patronage. Locals tip: ask for Pablo's special organic Margarita! You won't be disappointed!

What a treat -- the Mexican food was excellent, and the warm and friendly service made my evening. It was so good, I ate there twice in three days.... and I was remembered upon my return.

Homemade salsa and chips to start, tried the Fajitas-Steak was tender and juicy with usual sides and homemade tortillas. Delicious. Also tried the quesadillas-chicken was juicy flavourful-Excellent. Indoor and outdoor seating. Good fast service. Will be back!

This was the nicest and most friendly Mexician Pub & Restaurant that we have ever been in. The owner was behind the bar, and can he make a mean drink. ( and a lot of them them) The owner poured a top shelve Margiaria and gave a good shot of Tequlia too go along with it. Needless to say, we... More

Not many Mexican restaurants serve carnitas, which is pork, shredded after a long slow cooking then briefly deep fried to put a slight crispy outer edge to the meat, This restaurant does it right. The marguaritas are not "short pours" filled with ice but forthe thirsty traveler. "California Burrito" will fill anyone up as it is wonderful. Would I go... More
