“Good Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Service was good, but the food was not enjoyable. Maybe this has changed since I am writing this a year after...

“Excellent Food and Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

The food at El Pobre is awesome, fresh, and always served with a friendly smile. I have a large family of seven and whenever I ask them where they want to go for dinner out, they always scream out, "El Pobre"!!

We do not dine-in as often as we do take-out, but every time we have dined in the experience was nothing less than excellent!

“Average Mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Decent food, fair prices...very affordable. El Pobre seems to be family run and it is usually busy so they must be on to something.
