Good Mexican food at a reasonable price.

I enjoy this place for a dinner with friends or family. The food is good, serving size is ample and the staff is friendly. It is also priced reasonably.

This place has the typical Mexican menu but I have to say that the flavor is above average. The burrito I ordered had steak and sausage toped with cream with a side of rice and beens. I would order it again. The salsa they serve as appetizer is very good with a little spicy touch but not enough to bother... More

The friendly staff is always on point. I have had many business lunches, as well as dinners. The service is wonderful. The is very flavorful and fresh. Whether you're with a group or on your own. Pueblo Viejo never misses the mark.

While the food is good, and atmosphere very nice, I do not think the recipes here have anything about them that separates them from what comes to mind when you think of heading out for Mexican food at most any other place. I am not sure if the current Pueblo Viejo is run by the same folks who ran the... More

Restaurant is in (and outside) an old house, so there are a few tables in lots of different small rooms. Plenty of outdoor seating if that's your thing. Good, but typical 'USA' mexican food.

Pueblo Viejo has good mexican food, but not the best in Hillsborough. The location is convenient, as it's right off South Churton before you get to Historic Hillsborough. The staff is friendly.

We have purchased take out from this restaurant several times and it has always been great with no mistakes. We decided that it would be fun to visit and celebrate Cinco De Mayo. The restaurant was very crowded but we were immediately seated. We placed drink orders while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive. The waitress came... More

Rapid service. Reasonable prices, typical selection. Good salsa - retried beans were more flavorful than most. Staff is friendly
