In one word, food at DP is fairly average. Their best dish by far is the Carnitas plate and other than that, there is not much there. I was disapointed with their new shrimp with poblano dish. The shrimps were rubbery and bland. Their fajitas...More

We used to eat at this restaurant two or three times a year. We stopped by today and no one greeted us even though there were only about 15 people in the restaurant - we had to ask to be seated. We waited a bit...More

Speedy lunch specials are very reasonably priced and available from Monday thru Friday. For $5.99 you can choose two from tacos, tamales, enchiladas, soup or salad. Beans and rice accompany each meal and then there are the bottomless chips and salsa. The restaurant is a...More

Prices are good for both food and drinks; however, food quality is on the low end of average with one exception: The FREE chips/salsa are outstanding; and the salsa could pass for homemade. I have been a customer here since 1997 and the food was...More

Stopped by for a bite to eat. Originally stopped at Applebee's, but once again I was invisible to the bartender. After one beer, I left. I was still hungry so I went to Chipolte and the line was wrapped around the interior of the restaurant....More

This is lowest-common-denominator Mexican food, bland, flavorless, un-imaginative. The high metal ceilings mean it is also much louder than the average restaurant, which can be even less pleasant when families with children are present. There are many better restaurants within walking distance of this establishment,...More

I once read that successful chain restaurants typically serve high fat, sodium laden processed food because 1) it’s cheaper, keeps longer, and is easier to serve and 2) repeat customers love it and don’t want to change a thing. If true, Don Pablo’s is one...More

Good service and great food, particularly the carnitas plate. Fajitas are also tasty, well cooked and nicely presented. Deserts never fails.
