Unless you're wanting a fast food chain, there isn't a lot to eat in town. However, we decided we would give El Pueblito a try one night coming off the lake. Excellent food and the service was the same. Will definitely be back.

Was camping at Cove Lake and just was craving Mexican. Wow this place was great! Was there around 2pm so no crowd and no wait. The service was great and so was the food. Would recommend to anyone wanting a good Mexican meal and would go back again for sure!

Always stop here when at the lake. Great food and drinks, fast service. Tell them when it's someone's birthday, but don't tell the birthday person. Just sit back and enjoy the surprise!!!

Had dinner here and we found the food to be decent. Very moderately priced. Loved the decor. We would go back. Service was very fast and margarita was good.

Great food and friendly servers! Don't know what I'ld do without this place.generous portions, busy place on weekends. If it's your first time, ignore the torn and worn seats, the food is awesome. The worn chairs speak for the frequent visits.

Our food was good. The male Hispanic server was very unfriendly. Wish I got this skinny guys name, but didn't. He brought me the wrong beer, and made it seem like it was my fault. We'd go there again, I'm sure this guy will be long gone in a few weeks.

Sometimes when you live on the outskirts of a metropolitan area you decide to venture into your own town to see what it had to offer. El Pueblilto is located in jacksboro-tn across from food city. This restaurant offers great parking considering its location. The entrance doors to the facility is a little awkward and has a small landing area... More

Service was horrible and tables and booths really needed a good cleaning. While waiting on food a roach crawled on table from behind condiments.
