Pueblo Viejo is a decent enough place for Mexican food. I wouldn't exactly call it "authentic Mexican", but it's about as close to it in Hillsborough as you're going to find. The menu has just about anything that you'd expect to find in there: tacos, tamales, flautas, echiladas, etc. The atmosphere inside is okay, and outside on the patio, a... More

Went there on a Saturday night around 6:30 and was ready for a parking lot full of cars and a possible wait but surprisingly found neither. Walked right in, seated quickly and served chips and salsa along with a drink order. When the waitress came back with our drink order, she, with a wonderful smile and attitude took our order....

We had an early dinner here last night. The weather was nice, so we sat on the patio, which was nice. I ordered chicken burritos - the description on the menu did not indicate that there were peppers and onions in the chicken and one thing I will not ever eat is peppers. The waitress was very gracious and took... More

Weak and tasteless margarita (it didn't say that on the menu!), standard tex-mex style food. Ok if you're desperate, but I don't need to go back.

Well, if you're looking for a place that will see how fast they can get you out, watery salsa, weak drinks with a lot of ice and very little alcohol, along with a fajita with nothing but peppers and onions (i THOUGHT I ordered a shrimp and chicken fajita, but you would have never known it by looking at it),...

Ate there 3/16. Restaurant sits back from road in old historic building a few miles from the freeway. Parking is a bit tight if restaurant is full. From restaurant to entry you will wind your way through the house to get to your table. Service is prompt and attentive. Salas and chip arrive almost immediately. All servers are available to...

This place is a bit odd in that the building is, literally, an old house. But, the food is good. The salsa is satisfying and they give you plenty of salsa and chips. They also serve an odd white sauce with the chips, but we don't care for it and usually send it back to the kitchen so it's not... More

We enjoyed an early dinner here on a cold day. The food was very good and our booth was cozy and toasty warm. A Mexican restaurant inside of an old house is quite unique but we liked it! Service was good, the chips and salsa were excellent and the menu has any Mexican dish/combination you could ever want. We found... More

We stopped off this exit with the intentions of grabbing a few tacos from Taco Bell. However, my boyfriend spotted this old home that had been converted into a Mexican restaurant. We were more than pleasantly surprised. Great food for a great price and fast service. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.
