Had a late night dinner 930pm. Service was excellent. Pork (chile verde?) was amazing. Would definitely go back.

We come to AI every year . . At least once. . . And we always make Pablo's our Mexican food choice!! Very pleasant back yard patio! Margaritas are superb! Service is top notch! My new favorite dishes are the avocado loco and the chili rellenos is awesome! Plating is well done and it's not smothered in cheese so the... More

Pablo's is a great place for families and solo meals. The service is excellent and I've never been disappointed with a meal. Even with my young grandchildren in tow, and not always the quietest diners, the staff is wonderful and accommodating to our needs. I suggest Pablo's signature margarita and the Chile Colorado ... awesome pork tips cooked with a... More

The margaritas and sangria are excellent! Salsa is very good as well as the appetizer of guacamole. We ate there twice and enjoyed our meals both times. Staff are friendly.

Our party decided to eat lunch and we were not disappointed. The organic margaritas were wonderful, the pitchers quite generous. I recommend trying grandpa's secret recipe tequila as treat. This tequila had by hints of vanilla and cinnamon with grandpa's secret ingredient. Good crisp tasty chips. The guacamole was excellent. Wonderful decor and excellent service. The staff was so welcoming... More

Had lunch here. The food was the best quality Mexican I have had in a long time. this is not Tex Mex or chain Mex. This is fresh food, expertly prepared and served. The amrgaritas are far better than you get at most places. Portions (including the margaritas) are generous without being nuts. If I lived in th area I... More

We are always a little uncertain about Mexican fare being prepared by various Mexican restaurants. The style of cooking varies greatly. We were wonderfully surprised by a menu offering that was a special for the night, Braised Pork Shank. What a fabulous dish. We tend to be a little picky and sometimes hard to please. This dish was fantastic. The... More

The food was cheap. The refried beans watered down to go farther and even then you get four spoonfuls. The Mexican rice was not authentic and way over cooked. The food was just cheap and over priced bc of the area. Look up don patron. It's near by cheaper and amazing Mexican.

Great location on a side street in historic downtown Fernandina Beach...authentic Mexican cuisine. The icy Margarita was a great way to enjoy the salty chips and delicious fresh salsa. The generous portion of chicken fajitas were sizzling and very satisfying. Very friendly and attentive service. Wonderful way to start our weekend!

There were less than 10 pieces of lettuce and 2 tomatoe quarters all which had been fried with the meat soggy wasn't the word for... More
