Live music added to the atmosphere. Good and drinks are generous and tasty. Prices are very reasonable. This is a good restaurant for families as well as couples out for the evening

I went to this restaurant with a Mexican co-worker. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience! He even told me that his food was some of the best he has ever had in the states! That is an excellent compliment for them. I will definitely be returning.

Bring a pillow or your own cushion because the seats in this restaurant are awful! They're woven cane/wicker and sag badly. They're terribly uncomfortable. HOWEVER, that is the only thing "wrong" with this restaurant. Food was served quickly and was delicious. Service was fast and friendly without making you feel like they wanted you to hurry up and get out...... More

I ordered the Ciete for lunch, which includes a chicken enchilada and a smaller rolled tortilla--also chicken. The flavors were good with some rice and refried beans, but I doubt they used more than two tablespoons of the shredded chicken. Felt like the old commercial: "Where's the meat?" The server was nice and the manager even asked if we were... More

Good Tex-Mex restaurants are hard to find in this area. And Mi Pueblo doesn't change that opinion. The queso with meat was bland, and the consistency was like mashed potatoes. The grliled chicken quesadilla was equally flavorless, with skimpy sides of sour cream and tomatoes. On the positive side, the atmosphere is nice.

I can't say the food is authentic or outstanding but its always hot and edible. I would say it's above average and so is the service.

I rarely meet a Mexican meal I don't like until tonight. The old saying go where the parking lot is full was not a truism here. I will give you that the place was packed but these people must never have had a good Mexican meal. I sat at the bar so I could get right in. The bar is... More

The parking lot was full but when we entered we were seated right away. Chips and salsa appeared before we could get seated. The waiter was johnny on the spot with menus and he arrived with drinks promptly, In a matter of a few minutes our selections arrived, hot and prepared to perfection. Been here many times and the food... More

We came on a Friday night. With the snow birds in town it was packed, but the service was fast, and we got seated relatively soon. We ordered the "El Conquistador" margarita and it was huge and delicious. Our chips and salsa came almost as soon as we got seated, and the chips were fresh hot and the salsa was... More

Two years later and the food is still average. the staff was exceptional, even the manager came around and asked how things were. The food was nice and hot. the food arrived shortly after we ordered which was a surprise as the place was crowded. If you want a pleasant meal with music, Monday night is the time to go... More
