This place has good food but it is sort of expensive. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating to all of our needs. Perhaps if there were some specials offered we would go back. Their fajitas were excellent. A bit open for our style as it's not very private.

We have eaten at several Don Pablo restaurants in the Twin Cities area and this one is by far the worst. Our server was simply terrible. He did give us more salsa when needed but never came around after that. Our water glasses were empty and my husband ordered the bottomless chicken chili and we had to flag the server... More

I have eaten here with friends. Food average, nothing really special. I would eat there again because it is in a convenient location. The main problem is that it is very loud in there because of the loft style ceilings. Hard to have a conversation with friends. They do offer daily specials and prices are reasonable.

My husband, son and I visited on a Wednesday afternoon. We were seated immediately and had great service, even though it seemed our server was the bartender, server, etc. She was great! Friendly, personable, attentive, etc. On Wednesdays, they have a great fajita special, which is what I had. I love their fresh tortillas! My son and hubby had the... More

The food was good, but did't really fill a you up. The atmosphere was good, very lively. The service was very good, even in a packed supper rush, they seemed to keep a calm head.

We had never been to a Don Pablo's before and felt like Mexican food so we ate here our first night in Maple Grove. The server was great, friendly, attentive but not intrusive. The food though was below average. My husband and I both ordered combos and the empanada his came with was the size of a quarter. The food... More

I go to this restaurant often and it is almost always great food. The service is sometimes lacking, but if you go for lunch on a weekday the service is better.

My husband and I visited Don Pablo's in Maple Grove on Oct 20. This was our first visit to a Don Pablo's. We thought it looked like a nice place. We have eaten at many Mexican restaurants, so our expectations were high for this place. Chips and salsa were brought to the table by the waitress. The salsa looked tame... More
