We've been to El Poblano twice. Good food and good service both times. Took some bakery items home and those were good too. Great tamales! Good salsa.

I was a little nervous about entering as things look a little run down from the outside... Lots of weeds, an empty sign holder from the last business here that looks a bit sad, a former drive-through that looks trashed. But on closer inspection, I found tomatoes and squash blossoms growing in the weeds in the parking lot & was... More

Huaraches Azteca. Awesome. Great tacos, tamales and burritos. Walk-up order, sit down, they bring you food. Sit-down service is weak...just get your own water and don't expect any service. Order everything you need the first time, or they'll get pretty confused. But there's not much tip needed for this kind of service, so it makes dining out that much cheaper... More

The veggie breakfast burrito was very good. We really liked the salsa. Took home some break and brownies from the bakery. Both were good. Would visit here again.

I eat at El Poblano at least every month and have never had a disappointing meal. The burritos are generously portioned and my favorite is the steak. A must is the guacamole which is made with fresh tomatoes and pico on the side so you can mix it in if you want. Very delicious!

We stopped in for some yummy tacos and we were satisfied. The steak tacos had great flavor and were so delicious. The chorizo tostadas also had great flavor and paired well with the fresh salsa and sour cream. The staff was helpful and very friendly.

Was not impressed with the food. Ordered guacamole. Server forgot and another server had to go get it. Guacamole needed more salt otherwise it was good. You get free chips and salsa. My husband ordered the burrito he liked it. I ordered steak fajitas. The meat was tough and the veggies slimy. The beans/rice came on a separate plate. You... More

I loved this place. The food was fresh, high quality and served with a friendly smile. The steak taco with cilantro and onion was one of the best I have ever had, I also had the fried tilapia taco, it was SO good, having it again, soon! The complimentary chips and salsa were excellent as well. The bakery items smelled... More

Homemade salsa is excellent and never exactly the same. Horchatas are delicious. We've even gotten them to go so we could make Rumchatas at home. Many types of fish tacos. Daily specials - always delicious. The place is not fancy but the food is delicious and prices are great. We try to eat here once a week.

Breakfast burritos: delicious. Taco salad: hearty. Tamales: scrumptious. Chips and salsa: always fresh and crisp, salsa is never ending! Fried zucchini (me) and tongue tacos (my partner): fantastic! Burros: mouthwatering, but grab them early -- they disappear quickly! Friendly service and tons of choices on the menu ... Love this restaurant for any meal of the day.
