The staff are all so friendly here and the food is delicious. You'll crave it for days after. Some favorites are the enchiladas suizas, pollo zaragoza and the Carne asada. If you go on a Friday they have the freshest Carnitas tacos... that's a real treat. I also love their selections of quality tequilas and even mezcal! Great atmosphere and... More

So we wanted Mexican and it was 3:30. Mi Pueblo doesn't open for dinner until 5pm. Was it gonna be worth the wait? We found something to do (Detweilers Farmers Market sort of across the street--great btw) and came back at 4:58 to find the Mi Pueblo parking lot filled and people lined up at the door. This is crazy!... More

The service was great, the food was also amazing. The atmosphere was nice and calm, what my family also liked best was the decorations.

I love Mexican food and hurd positive things about this restaurant. The feel of the restaurant is authentic and the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was just ok. My taco shell was stale. I was disappointed by the small margarita for the price. I will return eventually but I wouldn't go back often.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch on Sunday, we did not realize that they closed for a period of time in the afternoon until it became obvious we were being rushed out and told the kitchen is closing in 10 minutes. Our server was not knowledgeable with the drinks and I was charged for items I never received... More

There were six of us and each ordered something different on the menu. We were each of us very pleased with our dinner. Our compliments to the chef. The food was delicious, the service impeccable, and the prices very reasonable. It was a great evening dinner.

I have been visiting all 3 of the locations for many years and I must say they have the best enchiladas I've ever had! The food and service are always excellent. The Mariachi bands are always fun when they are there. Great for any occasion and great place to bring the whole family!

Sarasota location off university parkway, a starter big enough to share or for a single serving main course. Mexican queso, peppers, onions and chunks of Chorizo, baked to perfection, and served with soft tortilla's... Must be bad for the waistline, but very easy on the eye and very very good on the taste scale ! Quick service, hot food, great... More
