Pricey but good food

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 had a late lunch here today and the food was excellent. We both ordered the speedy lunch and indeed it was speedy as it was brought out to our table in a matter of minutes. The beef enchiladas were very flavorful and the rice side dish was good also. I requested no beans and my special request was handled... More

The food tasted weird, and was not good. We ordered an appetizer and each had a different entrée. None of us finished our food. The restaurant looks high-end from the outside, but is nothing like that in the inside and is very dirty. At least the food was cheap. I will say that our server was VERY AMAZING, nice and... More

I was in the Maple Grove area for a work event and grabbed lunch with my best friend and her two children. I had never eaten at a Pon Pablo's before and figured sure... I like Mexican Food!! It took us forever to get our water. They brought out chips and salsa like any Mexican restaurant however we ate all... More

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.
