We went to Don Pablo's for lunch today. The restaurant was not as busy as normal for a Friday. We were seated quickly but had to wait a few minutes for our waitress to come. We ordered drinks and the waitress arrived back within 4...More

Came in here for dinner on our way home. We have stopped in here for lunch previously and had good food. The service is usually slow, and it was a little slow tonight, although they were not too full. My husband had the Wednesday special...More

Service was terrible. Had to ask for for silverware, napkins, take-home boxes, and take-out order. They even forgot to give us tortillas for the fajitas. Didn't notice it until we got home. Food was fair, nothing more. Chips and queso blanco was the best item...More
