We have been trying all the restaurants in Borrego for several years. Pablito's is our favorite: they have a covered terrace that is colorfully decorated and a splashing fountain nearby by; their chili rellenos cannot be improved upon; other entrees are very, very good; service is casual but friendly; and - if this is important to you - their public washroom is impeccably clean!

My favorite restaurant in Borrego! They have a nice patio to enjoy as well as the authentic flavor of the food.

Very glad we followed the reviews. The food was fabulous and the margaritas over ice were delicious. We took our teenaged sons who ate themselves to the point of discomfort--and still kept eating. Unpretentious and unexpected. We'll eat here again.

Ate here twice during a recent stay in Borrego Springs. The outside covered eating area is a huge asset, and the food was excellent. Ate fish diablos in the evening, and huevos con nogale for breakfast (they don't open until 11:30, so breakfast may be a bit misleading). OK service - a bit slow, but things came eventually. This isn't a comment specific to this restaurant, bit the definition of 'diablos' in Borrego is a slightly sweet red sauce - think BBQ. Not what I was expecting (especially as it is always advertised as 'hot') but pleasant in a different way.
