I went to Don Pablo's for the first time recently to celebrate the birthday of a friend whose husband had set the party up as a surprise. It definitely was a surprise, and a very happy one at that, but our waitress handled everything with great aplomb! She was cheerful and pleasant throughout, and though she did have a little help when it came time to serve the food, she was nonetheless very busy. Someone at our table realized that our chips had largely gotten soaked in oil and had become tough and chewy, but the waitress simply removed the spoiled batches and brought back fresh ones which were definitely crisp and tasty. She kept up with the rotating and refilling of the drinks, and the food was served without much waiting. I had two large chili rellenos and a beef taco that came with beans and rice, but I could only eat one and a half of the chili rellenos so after eating the beans and rice I saved the rest and the taco to have for lunch the next day. Someone brought specialty cupcakes from a nearby store as the birthday cake, and the restaurant didn't mind that we had brought the dessert cake in. Don Pablo's is a fairly large place and good for having large groups, although I'm not sure but they may have other private areas if you're looking to have a very private party. Though there were other people there having parties, we got a late start due to some late arrivals and we didn't start the party activities until after eating, so there were very few other patrons left in the place when we started celebrating. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and drinks, and my chili rellenos and taco were delicious for the two lunches I got out of them. The staff was very cheerful and must be used to having birthday parties there a lot because they had some sort of birthday party routine they went through for a couple of other groups. (I think our host declined their performance for some reason.) Someday I'm going to go back and try the food when it's NOT someone's birthday!
