Friendly staff, clean and beautifully decorated and food that is consistently pleasing and affordable. The salsa bar is an added asset and the beer in the coldest in town.

Always a favorite. Fresh food, great service and affordable! The margeritas are always very good. I will keep going. One of my favorite little places in Rutherfordton.

Went to explore the next town over on vacation in Lake Lure, stopped here for lunch. What a surprise as I am not one who usually goes for Mexican. I loved the guacamole dip for the chips SO much! Our lunches were so good and fresh and the glass of Sangria we had was great! I would go back in a heartbeat. If you are in the Lake Lure area, take a drive over to Rutherfordton, just 20 miles away just to enjoy the food at Mi Puebilito! It was a great surprise to this person who usually says no, when someone mentions "who wants Mexican?" I would raise my hand just to eat the dip again!! Our waiter was so polite as were everyone we met in the restaurant. The town is pretty quiet but take a ride, get some chips and dip and a glass of homemade sangria while you look over the menu and enjoy! We did.

This is my favorite restaurant in our little town. I love the food and everyone is so nice and treat you like family. They recently built a new building and it is beautiful. Forest city (6 miles from here)also has a Mi Pueblito that is really nice but I prefer the Rutherfordton Restaurant because to me it taste better.

this is for the review of Mi Pueblito Mexican Restaurant, 213 W Warren St, Shelby, NC. This was good food, great taste. Waiter seemed to never come back nor could the overworked cashier be found when we got up to leave/pay....we we could have walked out without paying it seemed so understaffed but I would go back. Good chips/salsa, drinks, etc. Everyone, party of 4 who all ordered different things, ate everything on the plates w/exception of grey refried beans.
