After reading several great reviews of this restaurant, we decided to give it a try. Our first impression was not great as we had a 25 minute wait on a Thursday at 5:15 PM. While this might be considered a good sign (popular restaurant), the waiting area was very congested with very little seating while waiting. Once seated, we were... More

This restaurant has several locations. I have been to the one in Indio and also one on Cook in Palm Desert. My most recent visit was the Cook location. While the service can occasionally be less than great, the food is consistently good and authentic. The chips are always fresh and the salsa isn't too spicy.

This review is for Pueblo Viejo on Cook St Palm Desert. Great food and friendly professional staff. Helped us navigate an extensive menu and choose the right thing. Nice drinks and ambiance. Lots of locals so I think it represents a favourite spot. Will go back, for sure.

I've been here about half a dozen times - and it's been great food every time! Prepare for a wait in the evening, it's not the biggest place ever. Chips, salsa, etc. are excellent.

I really don't want to tell everyone, but this Mexican restaurant is wonderful. Food is consistent and delish! Service, with a big smile, is great. Happy Hour is really affordable!

Nice selection of Mexican dishes with an attentive wait staff. The atmosphere isn't the greatest but the food more than made up for it.

When we got out of our car and everyone was speaking Spanish as they went in or came out, I was sure we were in the right place. We were not disappointed!! The food was great and the generous portions were reasonably priced. We will definitely return on our next visit to the area!

Our first evening in Indio, looking for a good Mexican restaurant and we found one! Obvious local haunt as staff were greeting patrons coming in the door. We were in time for Happy hour. Great deals on drinks and appetizers. Margaritas were strong. $5 nachos! Tasty. Will definitely go again. Friendly staff.

This is our second visit to this location and it is as good as the first time we ate here. We brought another couple with us and the four of us each ordered something different. All of us were really pleased with our selection and our evening was topped off by the great service we received from Alajandra. She was... More
