Located right on Main Street near the Fox River in St. Charles, Illinois, Puebla Modern Mexican provides an intimate dining experience so guests can enjoy the company of family, friends, and loved ones. Inside, the restaurant offers a cozy dining room atmosphere and a bar that features a harmonious blend of traditional Mexican style with contemporary flair thanks to hand-designed tile and wood woven bar chairs. Puebla Modern Mexicans bean dip and chips are a welcomed innovation and contrast to the more common chips and salsa seen at other restaurants. Signature margaritas are created fresh in house by talented bar hands. Favorites on Puebla Modern Mexicans menu include the multiple taco choices, like the carne tacos, which are prepared with steak and caramelized onions, and the pescado tacos, which have fresh grilled mahi mahi and are topped with pico de gallo.

We LOVE Puebla! We are Mexican food connoisseurs, and this place is definitely our go-to. Amazing dishes, generous portions for the price, and top notch cocktails. The elote is the best we have ever had. The service is always excellent. It’s really hard to come by a perfect combination of all these elements (food, value, service), but Puebla does it with ease! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

We love the fish tacos. Guacamole is awesome especially with pineapple. Traditional margaritas are super tasty and not too heavy on the tequila. Overall a great experience every time we go.

The chicken tinga was dry and did not have a very prominent taste. The chips served with the ceviche were stale.

The steak tacos were delish! And the jalapeno margarita was wonderful. The perfect amount of heat.

This is now my 3rd time eating here. I have to say that their chicken mole enchiladas are to die for. The restaurant is 25 min from my house but I have to go bc I crave them! The portion is big enough for 2 meals and they heat up so well. Next time I go I am ordering 2 so I can eat them for lunch all week. The Drinks are also very tasty. My husband typically gets tacos which he says are delicious too. If you love mole you will not be disappointed.

Blueberry lavender margarita was amazing! The red sangria was very fruity and delicious! Both the chicken and shrimp fajitas had a great blend of flavors with and without the tortilla! The bean dip with the tortilla chips appetizer was a pleasant alternative to the usual salsa served at many Mexican restaurants. Our waitress was warm and friendly. She offered suggestions and shared her favorites to guide our selection. We will definitely be returning.

We came in a Wednesday night, maybe 4 tables in the restaurant and only one server. She was attentive enough considering she was busy. The specials were the buy one get one Fajita night. I had shrimp and my boyfriend had the Portobello mushroom. Both had a little too much onion, my shrimps were small in comparison to other restaurants. The 3 for $5 salsas and fajita specials were a good value. My glass of Chardonnay was a little too small of a glass for the price.
