We loved Papa Poblano’s! The service was great. I had the Milanesa and it was fantastic! Will order again. My husband really enjoyed this restaurant. It’s a hidden gem!

The food here is better than some mexican places & tasty but not the most amazing I’ve had. Often times tourists areas like this have amazing food & incredible taste beyond the norm. Good to great but I’d jump for Froggy Bottom or dead head...pizza.More

Highly disappointed. Came on a recommendation. Fajitas came out cold. I have never had cheese over top of fajitas, but this was not melted at all. When we pointed it out, they threw the whole platter back on griddle, overcooking everything. It was a mashed...up mess. Pre-cooked shrimp recooked makes for tough chewy shrimp. Waiter never checked to refill drinks. We were overcharged on our ticket and they were upset we pointed it out. First and last there. Nothing was fresh at all. Wasted our last night vacation dinner here. Menu is VERY misleading where fajitas concerned.More

Food tasted authentic. Prices were very reasonable. We did a large take out order and it was ready when promised. Only complaint is that they forgot part of the order which wasn’t a big deal. I ordered extra cheese for $1.99. The fish tacos were...filling and yummy. The rest of the family got the chicken and shrimp fajitas and the burrito. They give you lots of nachos and a spicy salsa sauce. I would highly recommend this Mexican restaurant.More

Really good Mexican food. We had several different dishes and all were good. Salsa was yummy as well. We had a large group - excellent service. Highly recommend.

The food was very good. However, I hate to say that we were not even greeted when we walked in. The staff was not very friendly, unfortunately.

Good homemade tortillas! I had Carne a la tampiqueña. It was very good, but if you don’t want it spicy ask them to remove the jalapeños. My wife had the cheese enchiladas and enjoyed them. Also they do use pork grease in their refried beans,...which makes them tasty, but not good for those who avoid pork. Overall good food with fast and friendly service.More

We had a party of 9 for Mother's Day brunch. The food was delicious and the staff was awesome! We've been here twice and both times the service was great! The waitress even brought all the moms at our table a sweet little gift, it...was completely unexpected and really made my day! The smiles on the faces of all the staff is infectious. We will definitely be back!More

Food was okay. Service was slow. Lunch took hour & 1/2. Queso is just cheese with nothing in it. No spice etc. Not sure I’d go back.

This restaurant was in the parking lot of our motel. It looked crowded when we walked in but most of the people were waiting for take-out meals. They had good Mexican food and served huge portions. We got a to go box and ate the...rest of it the next day for dinner. The service was very good. It had nice atmosphere.More

We started with the homemade chips and salsa which were great and when I couldn't decide which meat to get with my Alambre (Full Size Order- Steak, Chicken, or a sausage with Monterrey jack cheese, bell peppers, onions, ham, and bacon with a sode of...pico de gallo, rice, beans, and fresh flour tortillas) our outstanding waiter Alex suggested that I get a combination or Chorizo and Steak. It turned out to be a great selection. My wife enjoyed her small order of chicken fajitas also. The tortillas were hand made and still warm. The menu had a lot to offer.More

We live in Colorado, where we expect good Mexican food, and had been driving home through Arkansas, after an exhausting day and stopped here to eat. I was so tired and not expecting anything much in this small town, but wasn't just surprised, but shocked...at how FANTASTIC EVERYTHING WAS! The decor was friendly and colorful (NOT a greasy spoon). the food items included the traditional fare, but also unusual and different mexican combinations of tastes. Our waiter, "Alex," was SO FRIENDLY and helped us navigate what we were looking for and made recommendations: he was a huge part of what made the restaurant so inviting. We ordered one of his recommendations and...I have to say I can't remember tasing such WONDERFUL MEXICAN FOOD, in decades! It's the best!!! The food is freshly prepared after you order and the tastes were a gathering of individual flavors: NOT a mash all blended into a blah! It was truly an unexpected delight to eat there! Also, families were welcome there and we saw many dining there.More

We were traveling through Broken Bow and decided to stop and eat. We found Poblanos and decided to try it. We were seated and waited on quickly, nice server. Our orders arrived quickly as well. So far so good, our food was even good. My...only complaint is that not once were we asked if everything was okay. Not once were we asked if our drinks needed refilled, which mine did, as in empty. The only time our waitress came back to our table was to start clearing our plates and a second time to leave our bill. I didn't leave a tip and usually I'm a great tipper, usually 20 percent if service is just good, I'll tip more if server is cheerful and goes out of there way to make a dining experience exceptional.More
