A friend told me about this place and wow! It's SO good. Even the LEMONADE is the best I've had. I haven't tried everything yet but I've loved everything. The helpful menu had photos and translations which are very helpful. Just don't skip the flan!

I’ve never been to a Colombian restaurant before this one, but let me tell you it was incredible. As an appetizer I had the beef empanada, it was fabulous! The dough was perfect match for the tender beef and potatoes inside. They were delicious and...pretty big for for its price of $2.50. And as a main coarse I didn’t really know what to get so I chose the “carne con papas fritas” which is thin and definitely not undercooked, so it made it in a delicious way- crunchy. The rice was so tasty I can not explain. For $12 dollars, I couldn’t finish it all though, for its price, it was a lot of food. There was no kids menu, but honestly just don’t eat all of it/split/take it to go, the food so good though, you would want to save it for the next day. Originally I was there for a Spanish project. I was very nervous Incase the server didn’t want to be recorded, but my waiter was SOOOO nice, she was amazing. When my dad interrupted the “film”, we had to redo it and it was totally fine with her, the service and atmosphere is awesome. The servers checked on you every 10 minutes during your meal to help your needs but not”bug” you. But I wouldn’t mind having them there. I am definitely going again with my family, you should go, 5 STARS!!!!!! (Get the beef empanada)More

I've never been to Columbia, but coming in here last night felt very much like being transported to Medellin, with the smells of spiced meats and beans transporting me right to the center of the namesake Medellin park. My meal was centered around a cake...of rice, with fresh avocado, multiple kinds of sausage, including blood sausage, plantain nicely cooked, and amazing spiced beans. Adiela Jaramillo and staff were all so very kind and congenial to us.The varied flavors on my plate made me appreciate and taste the history that Mrs. Jaramillo brings to each dish. We will be back, and are so happy to have made the trip to discover this wonderful Columbian restaurant.More

I came with my wife and kids. They don’t have a kids menu, and the service is not good. The food was ok, not the best Colombian restaurant. Portions are smaller than a normal Latin restaurant.

We chose to eat at Pueblito Paisa because it had the best reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not let down! The meals are large - my girlfriend and I could finish ours- but our husbands did. All four of us loved our food -...since I don't speak Spanish I cannot remember the exact name of my dish but it had shredded chicken mixed with rice and onions and vegetables. (Azzo... pollo?!) It also came with a small salad and fried plantains. I added the special sauce - ketchup and mayo- to plantains and they were good. They also have a hot salsa that was great on the rice and chicken! They sell wine, beer and fresh fruit juices- all were good! I would highly recommend this place- the service was also great- seems like a family run restaurant and the vibe is chill. They took good care of us. I think it is in the Latino section of town from the looks of the other stores and eateries. From the outside it doesn't look as appealing as when you go in and see the colorful Columbian decor! You gotta try it!! Yum!More

As the title says the food is great but, they are very inconsistent with the hours and even the sides that come with the food. If they were more consistent I think business will be much better. But overall amazing food! I still go pretty...often!More

Take a trip to colombia! Whether you are grabbing a quick bite to eat or having dinner with a friend, Pueblito Paisa is a great spot to eat. Stock up on fresh baked goods, and snacks while you are there. The restaurant just got its...liquor license and is now serving wine and beer. Perfect to sip while watching a soccer game!More

Very interesting and well cooked food. Also at reasonable prices. We went on Saturday for lunch and it was busy with families and couples. Parking was not too much of a problem after going around the block to find a spot. The restaurant was clean...and had nice bathrooms and seemed quality throughout. The waitress was very nice and came by many times to check on us. We left feeling quite satisfied and would definitely return.More

This is a small Colombian restaurant on MA-126, just south of MA-135. Park on the street; bring change for meters. The food was great. I had the bandeja con carne desmechada. The meat sticks are what I would call shredded meat. It has a very...tasty sauce. It comes with rice, pinto beans, a sunny-side-up egg, and plantain. It was late and they were out of arepa (corn bread) and substituted a cabbage salad with avocado slices. My wife had the carne asada de res--a beef filet with plantain, rice, and salad, The meat was a bit togh but well-spiced. The default cooking for meat is well-done; they will cook medium if so requested. She had a guanabana smoothie which she quite enjoyed. We had gotten there late and had no time for dessert but we took home a caramel flan that was good--not too much caramel--that went well with hot chocolate. We need to go back and try more dishes. One deficit: the only tea they have is camomile; it should not be hard to stock a few green or black teas.More

Quick and friendly service. Traveled 45 minutes just to eat here and it was definitely worth it. The food was delicious and the beef empanadas were out of this world. We tried both the chicken and the beef and decided the beef empanadas were the...way to go. We also ordered 2 different Bandeja's paisa and we were not dissapointed. Big portions and very tasty. Will come back again.More

Amazing food and excellent service! The smoothie/juices are delicious and the quality of the food is just amazing. Being from PR I of course love flavorful (not spicy) food and this met all of my high expectations. Great job guys!

Step into the brightly-painted storefront that houses Pueblito Paisa in downtown Framingham and you feel as if you have passed through a magic doorway into South America. Photos of the city of Medellin and other Colombian scenes decorate the walls, a Latin American soccer match...blares from a large wall-mounted television, and the staff and most of the patrons, which consisted of couples, friends, and families, are chatting away in Spanish. The server spoke fluent English as well, however, and happily interpreted what some of the Colombian specialties on the menu were, since even with a printed English translation some of them were mysterious, such as "pork skin" - which is fried pork belly. The restaurant does not have a liquor license, but a separate drinks menu offers an array of fresh fruit juices, smoothies, really, served with either a water or milk base in a pint glass for $3. A passion fruit juice proved a refreshing counterpoint to the interesting food flavors. I had the Bandeja Paisa, at $14 the most expensive item on the menu, and a veritable tour of Colombian cuisine on a single, heaping plate. A large piece of flank steak was nicely seasoned and grill-charred, surrounded by a smoked sausage and a rich, rice-stuffed blood sausage, and topped by chicharron, the afore-mentioned fried pork belly, an extraordinary meat medley overall. And for those unfamiliar with Colombian cuisine, it is well-seasoned, but not at all spicy hot. But wait, there's more, much more to this dish. A large dollop of rice is topped by a fried egg, a fried plantain anchors one end of the plate, and the opposite end offers mixed baby greens topped with slabs of fresh avocado. And a small, separate cast-iron serving dish is filled with silky baked beans spiked with chopped scallion. If you can get through this pile of food and still have room for one of the enticing-looking desserts like flan you probably won't need to eat again for quite a while. Pueblito Paisa is open daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and also offers a hearty breakfast menu. In addition to beef and pork dishes, there are also chicken and fish options as well as traditional appetizers like empanadas. Everything on the menu is under $15 with many dishes in the $9-11 range. The service is friendly and attentive. The lighting is rather bright and the furnishings spartan, but it's clean and serviceable, since this is more an everyday family restaurant with low prices, rather than a romantic, special occasion dining destination. But the food is authentic and the portions are generous. Dinner for two with drinks and tip was under $40.More

This is a small friendly storefront restaurant in downtown Framingham somewhat off the beaten track. The menu is fairly extensive and we tried several different meat dishes. I ask for my steak medium otherwise it comes out well done as I find typical with South...American food. The food is very authentic and was comparable to the food I had in Colombia. I always order a fruit juice which is like a delicious smoothie and somehow goes well with the meal. The portions are large and we always take home leftovers. What's nice is all the meals come with some combination of rice, beans, salad, plaintains. The prices are extremely good for the quality and amount of food they give you. The staff are helpful and friendly and make good suggestions. I often get take out and the empanadas are really good and very inexpensive. My favorite is the cheese bread or I think it's call pan de queso which I eat fresh or toasted. It's delicious and only $2 a loaf. It's habit-forming. I also buy the cremas which are frozen fruit pops in a small plastic cup. I try a lot of different things when I go there and always like what I have ordered. Very good and different from the many chain restaurants that abound in Framingham. Definitely better variety, price and service. Give it a try--I think you will be pleasantly surprised!!More
