Went here with Family on a Monday, ordered food and drinks. Server disappeared for 10 minutes after taking the order, bought drinks, and came back after 20-25 minutes with food and disappeared for another 20-25 minutes and came back with check, did not even care to ask if we were going to order deserts. Being a Monday, there wasn't much... More

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant to eat at! They serve the best chips and salsa while you wait for your food. Food comes out quickly and hot! Great place for lunch, dinner or a night of an appetizer and drinks with friends. Lots of parking space and it's very large inside. Friday and Saturdays get busy so if you... More

I am from California near the border of Mexico. I lived on Mexican food and continue to strive to find authenticate Mexican restaurants. We tried Juan Pablo's and thought the atmosphere was cute - a fountain in the middle ... Music and bright colors. That was as much of "Authentic Mexico" as this restaurant provided. The enchiladas were tasteless -... More

We stopped here for lunch on a Saturday- Not busy at all! Tortilla chips were warm, and the salsa was just okay. The HOT salsa was not very hot. The other was just canned tomatoey. It would be better to have fresh salsa. I had the pork carnitas which were wonderfully tender and flavorful. If you are going to Don... More

Not having any reservations at any eatery that day we decided to give this place a try. We've been there many times before and always like it. This trip was no exception. In spite of the holiday and the many people dining there, we quickly got a table and service and great Mexican fare. We will certainly return.

Don Pablo's used to be one of our favorites... Coming from Sunday sports tournaments back to Baltimore we'd stop at Don Pablo. Always friendly and always good food. We arrived Sunday early evening for dinner. The menu has changed; more streamlined and less choices. That was ok. But, today for not being busy, the food and service was terrible! The... More

The place was crazy busy for a Tuesday night. The bar and kitchen were behind. Took 15 minutes to get drinks. The appetizer never came. Food was ok but nothing special. Margaritas were too sweet. Maybe when it's not so busy things would be better.

I want to Christiana Mall for the first time. We got to shopping and the we were really hungry. Lots of choices around but we settled for this restaurant. As expected it was crowded. We waited 15-20 mins and we were seated. Server was busy and we were ok with that; plates were very dirty. We were given chips and... More

Friday night Fish and Chips? I don't think so. I ordered Carnitas, which is SUPPOSED to be pork cubes simmered in a stew of tomatoes, chiles, and onions until the meat is so tender it falls apart when you look at it. What it is NOT is pulled pork BBQ with mild salsa poured on top, but that's what I... More
