Interested in trying something new and exciting? Puebla is a contemporary Mexican restaurant created by Restaurateur Tony Alfonso. Our experience and love of high-quality Mexican fare inspired us to open our own tribute to modern Mexican cuisine and we are excited to share it with the community we love. We've created a unique menu and a trendy atmosphere, and then made it great by accentuating it with genuine Mexican generosity and indulgence. Puebla specializes in recreating the fiery and aromatic cuisine of Puebla, Mexico. Our exquisite restaurant takes great pride in the authenticity of its fresh salsa, flavorful guacamole, and tasty tacos. The same care and attention is put into every delightful

The place is new and the place is very attractive. The food was delicious and the presentation pleasing. Service was adequate and not many people present at the mis-week dinner time. Definitely worth stopping for a bite to eat.
