Puelo's is a chain in this area and was near our hotel, so we went. It has steak, seafood, sandwiches, some Italian-named items and other stuff. My wife had a dish ecumenically called "Insalata Caprese Salad." This was a special on its own menu card, and the reverse of the card informed you that you could opt for a side... More

Had a late dinner (~ 8 pm) here on Saturday, 6/14, while staying overnight at the nearby Hampton Inn and Suites. Only about 4 tables of people at the time. Restaurant was very clean and even had a bar area. Wife and daughter's friend both had the Nona's lasagna, which was a large serving. Both really like it. My daughter... More

Father's day brunch was very good. Breakfast items and roast beef, pork loin, shrimp and grits and more. Smoked salmon on the salad bar is my hubby's favorite. Desserts were a good variety and very good!

We stopped at Puleo's on a trip from NC to Nashville, since it was close to get off and on I -40. This will be a regular stop on our trips this way from now on. The restaurant is super clean, including the rest rooms. The menu is quite varied, and we had a little trouble deciding. My husband is... More

We stopped at Puleo's to grab a quick Saturday lunch after shopping at West Town Mall. The service was slow. The brunch was tasty. Omelette with fruit for a healthy lunch. The potatoes were nice an crispy. The kitchen forgot to add the spinach to my omelette and I only had sun dried tomatoes and scallions. It was a different... More

Everything we ordered was hot, cooked perfect and large. They delivered to our hotel, which was great after a long day of driving.

Went with 10 people from my family. They have a large and visited menu which makes me skeptical but we all has different things and it was all wonderful! I had the crab cakes which looked different than I'd ever seen but were wonderful! My wife had a pasta with a tomato cream sauce that was delicious. Sister in law... More

Seated in the bar area even though it was early enough and lots of tables in the dining room. Didn't matter enough to ask to switch, just odd. Fried asparagus app was okay, certainly not "golden or crispy"- i'd have cooked it for 1 more minute. Sirloin wasn't a great cut. Ordered medium rare and it was medium rare (yay!!)... More

Friendly service; delicious dinner! Have eaten there on at least 10 occasions as we travel south and then north. The cod in butter garlic sauce was excellent: succulent and very fresh-tasting and the accompanying vegetables were fresh and cooked with respect. Service was friendly and courteous and prompt although we weren't in a hurry. There was interest in our Canadian... More

We had dinner here, and it was real nice. the waitress brought bread right away that was just right. I had the Spa Salad and loved every bite -- spring greens, artichoke hearts, asparagus, and more with a delicious raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Others I was with had lasagna and steak that they enjoyed very much. Great dinner and dining experience!
