Good Place

It was a cute restaurant with good food (not the best but good)- clean but the service was a little slow.

Reasonable prices and the food is very good. The music can be loud at times. The service is good and I have never had to wait too long for our food to be delivered. The food is tasty and authentic.

Great place! We were craving Mexican food and the hotel staff directed us to this place and we were not disappointed. The service was wonderful and the food delicious!

This is probably the only Mexican restaurant in the little town, so is it great, no not really, but then its not bad either. The food is pretty standard for a little local Mexican joint. The chips and salsa were tasty, food arrived hot and I can't complain. Hey we are not in Mexico.

Ate here for dinner. Have eaten here before several years ago. Found the facility needing some updating even though there was painting going on during our meal in a roped off section. The menus were tattered and torn with food smeared on them. Not a good start. The chips, salsa, drinks and food was served very fast. The chips were... More

This is the second time eating here and both times have been exceptional! We hate the Mexican restaurants where everything tastes the same. My husband got the Polo Poblano and loved it. My shrimp chimichanga was delicious! In a small town with not many restaurants this is a gem!!!

Absolutely terrible. Went for dinner one of the nights during a bachelor party at Norris Lake. The bar was under construction and they did not have margaritas. What!?!? The menu was filthy and we needed hand sanitizer after touching it. Most of the group ordered something with grilled chicken to reduce the risk of food poisoning. Might be fine for... More

A coworker and myself were working in the area and had dinner here on a Monday night. My food was average, not bad, not great. Prices were reasonable and service was very good. Probably would visit again and try something different.

I grew up here in La Follette, and have to say this is my go to place when I want to sit down and eat. The folks at El Pueblito bring authentic flavors, and great service to a town where that's very hard to find. The staff rotate a lot and you get a mix of a good and great... More
