Loved Pablo's- it's located in the historic downtown. My husband and I ordered the Quesadillas which were really good! I also had the Black bean soup which was perfect for the cold weather. Very cozy and casual environment.

It was a warm, sunny Saturday in January during restaurant week, so every place we'd hoped to have lunch was packed. Since we're big fans of Mex, Tex-Mex, New Mex and Mex-Cali food, we figured we'd give Pablo's a try. The dining room is tastefully decorated. Following a warm welcome from the hostess, the first clue that we were in... More

The food is very good--flavorful and with fresh tasting--but not exceptional. Service is also very good. We arrived for lunch just ahead of a large party (12-14 people including small children), and the wait staff was a bit flustered at first but recovered.

My wife and I were in town the week of Christmas and we ate here twice in a matter of a few days, one of them being Christmas Eve. We both ate totally different items each time so we experienced some variety. The food was plentiful, and tasted fantastic. It was served very hot and inviting. We had a couple... More

This place is so good. It is real authentic. It's a little higher priced but worth it. The service was great too. My husband got a margarita and said they really are the best he ever had.

If you like Mexican food, Pablo's is good. They are generous with their portion size. Its a very good value. The drinks are generous as well. they have a nice courtyard for outside dining in the spring/summer/fall.

Great food. Great drinks. Great service. What a perfect way to start 2015. Excellent Mexican food. Shrimp tacos. Street tacos. Fish tacos. And more. Pablo's dip was off the charts. Melted cheese with chorizo which was served flaming. OMG. Can't wait to go back!
