Stopped in for lunch and we were seated, waited on and were eating within 20 minutes. Food was Hot (Plates too) and was very good. I would go back again. My family of 4 walked out stuffed and the bill was $41

This is a Midwest chain that has fairly decent food. The personnel were very friendly and helpful. Ask for an off menu item and they accommodated. A shrimp chimichanga was good. Reasonable prices also. Worth a visit.

Same old, same old. Typical chain Mexican food. Interior kinda dark. Not real inviting. Chips and salsa were ok. Chips were salty, salsa was very mild. It was chunky, which is always a plus. I always get the hot salsa which had no heat to it. Food was acceptable but no where near "authentic" Mexican. Beef had little or no... More

Go for the corn cake!!! The other food is usually ok and the drinks are good. The problem is usually the wait staff's inability to get your order right. In the past we went there a lot. Now it is it or miss, but the bar is always good.

I love Mexican food but not spicy. I asked our waitress if the enchilatas were spicy and she said no the meat was like Taco Bell. When I tasted it, it was too spicy so I immediately informed the waitress. She went and brought back the manager. He was grouchy and said "what do you expect this is a Mexican... More

My wife and I had just left one of her Dr's appointments and wanted to grab dinner. The last time we had eaten at Don Pablo's was about a year prior in Carmel, horrible time (See review). The visit to this store was literally the opposite. Fast friendly service, cheerful staff, engaging manager and delicious food that arrived quickly. I... More

Went for lunch Today, 3-29-2015. Unusually long wait for our order. Food arrived cold, tasteless... The manager said he'd make an adjustment on my bill. I told him to instead, have a talk with his kitchen staff. Absolutely terrible food. When you're hungry and order something that looks hot & delicious and it comes to you like it was sitting...

We had the chicken fajita burrito. It comes with delicious dirty rice and black beans. Seems like they always have the large cheese dip "on sale" for $3. We also got the sopapilla with ice cream. Had a coupon for $5 off $25 and we were out the door (with enough leftovers for dinner the next night) for $30 including... More

It was the service that made my last visit to Don Pablo's exceptional. Yes, their food is still tasty but it was both the hostess and server that made our meal special. In a time where hostesses often look bored and/or bothered that you came into the restaurant, Saturday's hostess was polite and pleasant as she lead us to our... More
