Love this chain. the food is consistent and good every time. I am creature of habit so on this trip like all the others I ordered 3 cheese enchiladas with rice and refried beans. I love their chips and salsa as well. I always order a side of guacamole. The prices are reasonable and the service good as well.

This was the best restaurant we found during our week on International Drive. With members of our party of 5 being both gluten intolerant and vegetarian we really struggled to feed them both. Don Pablo's was perfect - a huge menu that catered for everyone! The staff were really friendly and helpful and recognised us straight away on our second... More

We stopped here for lunch. No wait. Very large restaurant. Delicious chips and salsa served while you wait for your meal. Very good dishes at reasonable prices. Good size portions. Friendly staff.

At peak hour, when all the other restaurants were crowded, Don Pablo was empty. The food would have been acceptable had they not had so much trouble getting our order right. There are better Mexican restaurants nearby, but, I guess this might be a silver lining....you can come here to avoid the crowds.

When we ate dinner at Don Pablo's I was surprised to see its parking lot nearly empty compared to all the other restaurants on I Drive. Within minutes of walking in, I understood why. EVERYTHING was sticky. The floors, the table, the chairs, my daughter's high chair. Yuck. Our food was just OK and the service not great. It was... More

Really rate this restaurant for its value for money and quality of food - good sized portions too. Service good without being too 'in your face' the whole time.

If you love Mexican food and know what great tastes like this is not the place for you. I had high expectations and had been looking forward to trying here. The service was fantastic but sadly the food wasn't the best. The complimentary chips were good but the salsa tasted like it had been laced with garlic. My main was... More

The place was deserted when we went in but we were too hungry so decided to give it a chance. The waiter was really friendly but had a very dirty apron and a hole in his shirt which didn't bode well. Free chips and dips to start was ok but we were surrounded by half cleared dirty tables and washing... More
