Very good Mexican food for a quick lundh. They do a good job with all the standar Mexican fare. Chips are outstanding. Pricing is very reasonable with a lunch menu except holiday weekends when they only use the dinner menu even for lunch.

We ate at Pablo's when searching for a restaurant for a wedding rehearsal dinner. The service was excellent and the food was among the best I've had (and I've been eating Mexican for 40 years). We had the rehearsal dinner for 35 people there. It was a huge success. If you go get a Margarita. Pable knows Margaritas.

Good food, fast service. The salsa/chips are awesome. Colleagues loved the guacamole. Fajitas were darn good too.

We went to Pablos on the strength of a recommendation from a colleague. It was great - pablo's dip as an appetiser is especially nice, served with a flaming shot of rum on top - and the entrees held up the same standard. Very enjoyable, the next time we're in the area we will be coming back.

Good food, good friends, a great place to eat and drink! Love Pablo and Fernando and their waitstaff. Great margaritas and over 50 tequilas to choose from. Don't live there anymore but ALWAYS visit when in town.

I loved their steak burrito because the steak was marinated! Our whole family loved their food - everything tasted fresh. The house margarita was delicious to! It can get noisy inside - wide open space. So, don't take the kids if they need a quiet place to eat!

Fresh, scrumptious food. I'm not a huge fan of Mexican food until I ate here. It's not at all like the chain Mexican restaurants. Everything is fresh, and delicious. Do yourself a favor and try it!

Queso was good although not completely melted. I had the chicken fajitas and they were good, just not quite great. My wife had the beef brisket chimichanga which was very good. The service was good and friendly. Certainly would eat here again!

Locals recommended this restaurant, so that it's why we went..First off, no avacados!! Really?? The waiter was nice but didn't know specials or anything about the menu. Queso and salsa with chips was delicious!! My order came out and was completely wrong, they were very nice about it but it wasn't fun to eat after everyone has already ate. Portion... More

This was an absolutely PREFECT dinner. The mood was relaxed, servers exceptionally quick and polite. Food was OFF THE CHARTS. Yummmmmm yummmmmm yum! To top it off - a complimentary shot of tequila before we left for a lovely walk on the pier in the sunset. Definitely telling everyone to go, and I'll be back as soon as I can... More
