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.

I have eaten here many times, and am very happy with the food, quantity, and prices. The Fajita Burrito is probably my favorite, but their Macho Burrito and Quesadilla are also excellent. Other than being located in a historic house, there isn't anything especially unique about this restaurant. However, the food is very good and plentiful, providing a good value.

Went here on a Friday night got seated right away, it seemed very slow. We both ordered the #1, which is 1 Taco, 2 Enchilada, and rice. I had 1 beef enchilada, and 1 chicken. We both agree the beef wasn't very good. It was ground very fine, and was greasy which isn't very good. The rice wasn't really what... More

By far has the freshest HOT sauce (you have to ask for the really HOT sauce). Friendly staff. Good food and the outdoor seating is the best. Live entertainment in the summer months.

Good, average Mexican food. No complaints--not outstanding, but not bad. If you're in the mood for Mexican, I'm sure you'll be happy. The salsa is yummy.

Pueblo Viejo is located in, as the name would imply, an old house - just past the Daniel Boone shopping area going north on Churton (the "Hillsborough" exit) heading toward downtown. This location used to house a restaurant called Casa Ibarra. Pueblo Viejo serves excellent food and the waitstaff have a great attitude, one of the things that can be... More

My husband and I go here quite often for quick mexican food. We really enjoy the food, and the salsa is really yummy. We like it better than Bandidos, which is in town. The service is very good, as well, and the prices are reasonable. It is located in a restored house in Daniel Boone Village right off 85. I... More

Located in an older house this restaurants serves the standard Mexican fare and does it very well. Service is very good and there is full service bar. Popular with local Hispanics which I take as a good sign.
