The food is good, and has a decent amount of variety. Nothing too out of the box, and exactly what you'd expect. Service wasn't terrible and things came out on time.

My wife and I had lunch at El Pueblito today. The lunch "experience" was very good! The first impression to almost all, if not all Mexican restaurants is being greeted with chips and salsa. El Pueblito not only passed the initial test, but excelled with their chips and salsa. The chips were quite tasty, fresh, and still hot...nice! The salsa... More

Went into the El Pueblito with visiting family members for lunch yesterday. The place is recently remodeled and really nice and bright inside. An expanded menu with plenty of choices. We had some of the famous white cheese dip. Lunch specials: Taco/Enchilida, Flautas, and one person ordered the chile con Queso with chicken on it. All of it was fresh,... More

El Pueblito's has good food. But the flavor has changed on some of the menu items. I can one time & it's the normal awesome enchiladas the next time it tastes almost like Chef boy ardy sauce poured on top. I can no longer expect the same quality at every visit. Which is a shame because it was my fave... More

Went there for lunch a few weeks ago. The service was great. The chips and salsa came to the table right away. (super important) Good salsa. I had the taco/enchilada combo and I loved it. The queso dip was a little thin and bland, but I really enjoyed everything else, as did all in my party. Would definitely return.
