We stopped in on a busy Saturday night. Couldn't get a table but we were ushered to the bar and given menus and an order of chips and salsa. Service was very prompt. Pablo even came by to welcome us. I had the shrimp stuffed chili relleno and my husband had the Flautas Mexicanas. Both were soooo good. My husbands... More

Disappointed. Tacos tasted more like cilantro wraps than tacos. They were very busy and it took forever to get refills etc. Nachos were bare. Not impressed.

The food was good. We had fajitas and chimichangas. Service was very attentive. The owners took the time to speak with everyone. The margaritas were what made this a good deal. No skimping on the alcohol and great flavor. A bit pricey but well worth it. We would definitely go back.

We went to Pablo's on our first night into town. The salsa and food was very good however the service was lacking. The owner came over once and was very friendly but by that time we had our issues already resolved (they didnt make a dish right for one of us who is a vegetarian and when we asked them... More

Outstanding Mexican food and breathtaking margaritas. Order the top shelf Patron margarita, the best we have ever tasted. Impeccable service from our young waiter, the maitre'd and the owner kept everything coming at the right pace for a leisurely dinner. It was quiet enough for conversation, although the restaurant was full and busy. We had shrimp fajitas, made with fresh... More

Went on a Wednesday night with the family. Food was good, service was excellent. They went out of their way to prepare food for my son who , has many food allergies. Will definitely go back next time we are in this area.

I love good Mexican food -- and usually I know better than to eat it someplace where there are not likely to be many Mexicans. But we went to Pablos up in this northeast corner of Florida because it was one of the few restaurants that seemed to be open for an early dinner on Saturday. I had a mixed... More
