My wife and I used a Groupon to try out El Pueblito for a week day lunch. If authentic food is determined by a restaurant's clientele, then El Pueblito is authentic. Only three customers were there, or arrived while we were there, and all were speaking Spanish and all seemed to know each other. Several very young latin children came in with backpacks and lunch boxes and they were welcomed by the other patrons. They began playing with an electric car around the floor of the restaurant which added some ambience to the place and Univision was playing on the restaurant television.

The waitress was very good and the food was very inexpensive. I paid 4.99 for the chicken burrito/enchilada combo and my wife had the huarache. Both dishes were served with rice and refried beans. The portions were large and very filling but both of us felt the food was very bland. The chips were about average and the salsa lacked much flavor at all. Two were served, one mild that tasted like tomato sauce and one "hot" that wasn't all that hot and also lacked much flavor. If you go in wanting cheap, unspectacular food with a local diner atmosphere, you'll be fine here.

GREAT for a late night visit if you have the munchies. Try the caldo de res. The huaraches are good too.
