Although there seems to be no shortage of mexican restaurants in the area, this one definitely provides above average food and service. Chips were fresh and refilled often, as were the drinks.

This beautifully decorated authentic Mexican restaurant, just off I-75, in middle Tennessee is a breath of fresh air when on a long driving trip. It has a huge menu, very tasty and generous servings, clientele of local Hispanic population, everything we were seeking when trying to avoid the chain restaurants on the interstate. Prices - great, service - attentive.

We frequent this place often and it is a very popular place. The food is well prepared and served quickly. Waiters are prompt and check on you often. Monday is 20 percent off for seniors night. I have never been able to finish a meal there due to size. Chips and salsa are great and you can get a beer... More

El Pub's Is the place to go. We usually eat there 3 or more times a month it is just that good! Authentic Mexican decor, music and the best food around. My family of four order a Family Meal that is offered for $24 on the menu. May sound expensive but I have to honestly say it feeds all four... More

After trying to buy beer with our groceries before noon on Sunday (not happening in TN) we had an hour to burn. No way were we going back to our lake house for the week without beer. So following the recommendations of another review site and desperately trying to avoid fast food, we luckily stumbled upon El Pueblito for an... More

The chips were warm and the salsa tasty, but the meal was not so great. One problem was that it came out barely warm. Cheese enchilada, good; tamale not so good, beans and rice might have been better hot.

I ate here with friends after a hike on the Cumberland Trail. The chips were warm and the salsa tasty, but the meal was very average or less and part of the problem was that it was brought out barely warm. The cheese enchilada was fine, but I did not care for the tamale. Rice and beans might have been... More

This place was recommended by the hotel desk person.....the recent reviews are quite negative but hey, I'm one to form my own opinion...... No doubt we were wise to listen to the hotel recommendation as we would have missed out on a very good dinner.......greeted quickly and brought to our booth.....real Mexican decor, not sure if it is all hand...

I've live in Campbell County for over 10 years and have eaten at El Pub's many times...never been disappointed. It is always good, fast service, and plenty left over to take home due to the large portions...two people can share one entree and have plenty to eat. I recommend this place to eat...one of the best local restaurants.

The restaurant is really nice (except for the bathrooms perhaps), and it seems to be a good value because they have promotions such as kids eat free on certain days, HOWEVER, the food is lacking and service was just "okay". I actually got very ill after having just a taco salad here. Not just a virus, I had the vomiting/... More
