Although the food was average the exceptional service made up for it. Our server Brandi was just incredible!

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

Service was bad, food even worse--cold and without taste!! I would not recommend as there are so many better choices for authentic Mexican food in the area.

Excellent food with great service . The atmosphere is very good. Choice of tables or booths with choice of privacy booths if you like. Soda refills right on target.

Our first clue was that the fish taco smelled like fish. It was not grilled, but pretty much raw. The food was not hot but tepid. Every item was very salty tasting. Service was great, but food was not. Will eat at Eden Prairie Pablo instead.

The restaurant is clean and open. Love the décor. The drinks and the food are good but not great. The prices are bit on the higher end for Mexican food. The one cool thing that my wife and I noted was that they list the approximate calories for each food item on the menu. The bad...we waited about 10 minutes... More

I always prefer to find hole in the wall places, but Don Pablo's is good for a chain. Our waitress was amazing. Our food came fast and was sizzling hot. The prices are reasonable, especially on drinks.
