This used to be my favorite Tex-Mex restaurant. It was great but the Laurel and Columbia branches closed. The closest one now is in White Marsh, MD. I ate there. The food was good but I am not going to drive that far very often.

Not sure why but it closed down! The food was good, the service great and the drinks were usually well done.

I've eaten at this Don Pablo's many times since moving to the area over a decade ago. I won't review Don Pablos in general as others have done that below and someone checking out this particular DP may already be familiar with their food. That said, I do like DP food and sometimes find myself craving it. (Btw, if you... More

We've been here a couple of times and it's nothing special. We hadn't been in a while so thought we'd give it a shot again. Service was alright but could've been better. The table was sticky, something I absolutely hate in a restaurant. The whole place could've been cleaner actually. The food was mediocre too. My "sizzling fajita" wasn't sizzling... More

The restaurant was not clean and the service was slow even though it was not busy. The food was hot when it arrived though.

Don't go there. My ribs were so dry that the meat became part of the bone! My husband's steak taco had two pieces of dried beef in it and that was all. The two pieces of meat looked like burned fingers! Our drinks were so watered down that we truly doubted that there was any alcohol in them at all.... More

My family and I like eating at this restaurant on a fairly regular basis. On Monday nights they have all you can eat Faijtas for $11.99 (which is cheaper than a single plate of them at most reasturants) and on Tuesdays it's all you can eat Tacos for $7.99. The food is always good and service fast. The place is... More

This afternoon my wife and I stopped at this Don Pablo's for lunch. We were promptly seated and complimentary chipsmand salsa were served quickly. From there the meal was all downhill. My wife used the restroom and reported it was very dirty. First, a large table next to our booth must have been host to a large and extremely messy... More

Went for drinks and appetizers last year.we chose to try to sit in the bar area. First, there were only a few patrons sitting at the bar, but the bartender seemed stuck entertaining them as they were surely regulars. After 15 minutes we finally got someone's attention. She took our drink order; I believe it was a frozen margarita and... More
