“An "ok" Mexican restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner here recently for the first time and I was not impressed. The food was good but I've had better elsewhere. Also, the atmosphere of the place is outdated; the tables, seating, and floors were very dirty.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Been eating here since they open back in the late 90's. Love their fajitas salsas green sauce and yes even the taco salad. Don't forget to add a margarita or two....mmmm.

“So close to home”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This place is like one minute from my house and have been going here for about 15 years. I personally love the fajitas mexicana - it's the best. The chili con queso is pretty good too. Nothing compares to Pappasitos though but this place is really close and convenient. The wait can be pretty long, especially on Friday evenings. They have live music most evenings, if that's what you like, but it can get really loud and annoying at times. The service is hit or miss, just depending on your server.

“Service has dissapeared......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

I really have Loved Del Pueblo for many, many years however the Service levels of excellence have dissapeared. I would visit every week on Monday or Tuesdays when kids eat free, however now they charge for the kids drinks and the waiters seemed to be bothered by the amount of families with kids. The restaurant seems to still do OK, however with new competition...I will try elsewhere....

“Best Mexian in Houston!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012 via mobile

This is the best of all the Mexican restaurants. I've lived in Houston all my life and this truly is the best. I'm a very picky eater, especially about chips and and red sauce. Del Pueblo has the best green and red sauce anywhere I've ever been. If you are in the mood for a little of everything then I would recomend ordering the "El Dorado".
