We parked in front on Don Pablo's, heading to Home Goods store. When we were leaving we noticed that the building looked interesting so we decided to go for a couple drinks and to share and appetizer. The host was confused about seating, but we were promptly seated and our server came out with a basket of chips & salsa.... More

looking for a convenient location to eat dinner. It has been a long time since we had eaten at a Don Pablo's and sounded good. Wife ordered pick two and I ordered pick three. Received very small portions for the cost of the meals. Better value at Taco Bell. The tacos at Taco Bell are actually larger. Will not be... More

Come here a few times a year and always have an okay experience. Had to wait a bit to order, get refills, and have someone take our money, so there much longer than expected. At least we had plenty of chips. I got the fish tacos and thought it was good. When my son ordered bean enchiladas, the waiter asked... More

I saw a number of "iffy" reviews lately, but my friend and I decided to meet here anyway. We figured it would probably not be too crowded & we could linger & talk. We were promptly seated and presented with a basket of chips & salsa. Both were very good -- chips not too greasy and the salsa had a... More

We go there about once per year - usually because after a year's timeframe we forget how poor the experience is at Don Pablo's. Their food is below average: 1) chips can be too salty, too oily, too thin, too thick 2) their meats (we had fajitas) were very tough - we cut the meat into small pieces so our... More

Well all I can say is , It was pretty average. This the first time for both my wife and I. We were seated quickly and the chips and salsa were pretty good. Our meals came out in pretty quick time for a Saturday. Our meals though had a lot to be desired . My meal was very bland in... More

We stopped at Don Pablo's while shopping at Rookwood Commons. The service was good, and the food arrived quickly. I liked the Chimichurri tacos and my husband liked the fajita lunch special. The choices are a little better than similar restaurants with daily specials. The downside is the dust and dirt on light fixtures and walls at the booths. If... More

What a beautiful historical building, wasted on this restaurant. Dirty bathroom, poor lighting and so so service not worth the drive. I make my own Mexican dishes and these were lacking quality preparation...messy presentation like it was thrown together. Overall, ok food and service, but would not come back and cannot recommend to others. Many good restaurants in the area,... More
