Wonderful Atmosphere for a light hearted evening

Go for the corn cake!!! The other food is usually ok and the drinks are good. The problem is usually the wait staff's inability to get your order right. In the past we went there a lot. Now it is it or miss, but the bar is always good.

I love Mexican food but not spicy. I asked our waitress if the enchilatas were spicy and she said no the meat was like Taco Bell. When I tasted it, it was too spicy so I immediately informed the waitress. She went and brought back the manager. He was grouchy and said "what do you expect this is a Mexican... More

My wife and I had just left one of her Dr's appointments and wanted to grab dinner. The last time we had eaten at Don Pablo's was about a year prior in Carmel, horrible time (See review). The visit to this store was literally the opposite. Fast friendly service, cheerful staff, engaging manager and delicious food that arrived quickly. I... More

Went for lunch Today, 3-29-2015. Unusually long wait for our order. Food arrived cold, tasteless... The manager said he'd make an adjustment on my bill. I told him to instead, have a talk with his kitchen staff. Absolutely terrible food. When you're hungry and order something that looks hot & delicious and it comes to you like it was sitting...

We had the chicken fajita burrito. It comes with delicious dirty rice and black beans. Seems like they always have the large cheese dip "on sale" for $3. We also got the sopapilla with ice cream. Had a coupon for $5 off $25 and we were out the door (with enough leftovers for dinner the next night) for $30 including... More

It was the service that made my last visit to Don Pablo's exceptional. Yes, their food is still tasty but it was both the hostess and server that made our meal special. In a time where hostesses often look bored and/or bothered that you came into the restaurant, Saturday's hostess was polite and pleasant as she lead us to our... More

Service was great and the food was, too! I ordered the Chimichanga (chicken). Came with rice and beans, and a small salad. Plenty of food to eat. Very tasty. Daughter ordered the all you can eat tacos, which is their special on Wednesdays. They were quick to ask her if she wanted anymore after finishing the first order. Margaritas are... More

I met a friend here for a Friday lunch and it seems like this place has been slowly declining the last several times. No one was making fresh tortillas so it made me wonder if they were warmed up from yesterday. When our food arrived, my full order of chicken (fahitas) was all burned. I mentioned it to the server...

To be fair, it was Mother's Day -- a day everyone thinks they need to go out. Since we were on the road, we did not have a choice. We had been to Don Pablo's in Brandon, FL (which closed many years ago) so we had some idea of what to expect. When you walk in, you immediately see a... More

First off all this place have no mexicans. Then the food was not hot, rather barely warm. The place was trashy.
