“Best Authentic Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

The most authentic Mexican restaurant I've ever been to. I knew I was in the right place when all the patrons were of Mexican descent. If you're looking for a Tex Mex menu this is not the place for you.

“Great Authentic Mexican”
Reviewed March 31, 2011

This place is great! It is off the beaten path of the rest of the Mexican Town restaurants, but well worth it. They do have fenced in, and guarded parking which is nice.
Everything I have had here has been great. The chips and salsa, the tacos, enchiladas, burritos, everything. My wife and I have eaten here at least 10 times.
The prices are great also, my wife and I can get dinner and a drink each, for under $30.
Hands down, this is the best and most authentic in Mexican Town!

“Fun atmosphere, food okay to good"”
Reviewed December 15, 2010

We had a pleasant evening here recently with a large family group. The service was quite friendly and efficient. The different salsas that come with the chips and other dishes are very good, so are the margaritas, although they are not the strongest. Most of the food was very tasty. However, I didn't care for the chicharrones (fried pork rinds), not because I don't like fatty things, but because I thought the meat had a strange, unpleasant aftertaste. A similar thing happened with my pozole stew, in which the big chunks of pork had the same unappealing taste. The broth and the vegetables were outstanding though, and the portion was large, so I just left the meat. The strolling musicians they have on Friday on Saturday nights are delightful and worth hearing. Prices here are very cheap and I would come here again.

“This is authentic Mexican food!”
Reviewed August 25, 2008

Mi Pueblo is what a Mexican restaurant should be; serving dishes true to Mexican recipes. They just about have everything: tacos, tostadas, burritos. You can even take tamales to go! The atmosphere is great; nice open space and beautiful decor.
