    We liked the cushioned upholstered seats best. Drinks, guacamole/salsa/chips, and all entrees were excellent. Service was perfect, the server checked on us once or twice and carefully took some special orders. It can be crowded and noisy, especially on weekend nights, and if they leave the sliding patio door open it can get chilly inside adjacent to the open patio, on colder nights. We were a bit chilly where we sat inside. We would recommend it and would come back....very nice experience overall.

    We fine here often. The food quality this time was not the usual. The mole chicken enchiladas tasted like boiled water and all of the dishes seemed to be frozen foods microwaved and served. The chips were stale. The waitress was very friendly and replaced the stale chips.

    My love and I had an incredible experience once again at Pueblo. It is our favorite Authentic Mexican/Baja restaurant in San Diego. (We live in the PB area so a little biased) We were warmly greeted by the host and welcomed back nicely as returning customers! The manager was incredible as well as our server. The manager offered us a sample of a possible menu addition, and no surprise it was savory and delicious! Our server gave us ample time to look over the extensive and ever-evolving menu. We decided on the New Octopus Taco plate (AMAZING BTW) and the Birria taco plate, now coming with the best consume I have ever had, and my wife is from Mexico herself and was in love with it. Overall, yet again, an amazing experience at Pueblo and a Date Night restaurant that will not disappoint. We will be back soon! :)

    Adequate food, reasonable prices. It seems to cater to large, noisy groups. I had reservations, but the seat we got was squeezed so close to the bar that people seated there had to squeeze past us.

    The food was cold and not good. Steak was over cooked and rubbery. Drinks were watered down and overall not good. All the places we visited in our 4 days this was the worst. The reviews had me so excited but was less than impressed with cost and taste.

    Food has gone down hill since the last time I visited two years ago. Now it's just basic Mexican at best (tacos, enchiladas, etc.) maybe the drinks are better but didn't bother to try. Couldn't get past the food...

    4*'s out of 5. Super cool vibe , food was scrumptious. the only thing , that grinded my gears were the microwave tortilla's. NO BUENO. They get hard fast. Need a lil char from the flame or griddle. I need my tortilla's with Mexican food. Lol. That's the only reason y I gave it 4*'s.

    Our party of five had a very enjoyable meal at Pueblo. Our server was friendly and attentive, the menu provided many options, and the food was very tasty. My son and I enjoyed the molcajete, mine with meat and his vegetarian, and each was more than enough food for us with many flavors. Others had tacos and enchiladas and were happy with those choices. The restaurant interior provides plenty of space and has a calming feel for an otherwise boisterous PB. We’ll be back.

    I really enjoyed my experience at Pueblo. It's a super cute ambiance and great for larger parties! My only issue is the pricing on the margaritas... they want $15 for a tiny glass that is filled with ice so there is MAYBE 1 cup of liquid in the entire drink. Pretty lame for such a cool spot. At least use a regular size glass or margarita glass if you want to charge that much.

    We four older adults had an excellent time on a Saturday night at Pueblo (especially after we figured out that the open table next to us would be quieter than where we'd been seated.) The wait staff was friendly, if in a bit of a hurry to have us decide what we wanted to order. The food was excellent. Dinners came out hot and fresh. Among the four of us, we ordered the carne asada plate, seafood enchiladas, chicken burrito, and the combination plate with a chile relleno and beef tamale. We all subbed the meatless refried beans for the standard beans with chorizo. There were no complaints. We also shared two desserts, the churro sundae and the flan. The latter was a bit of a disappointment: The menu said it came with caramelized bananas, but those were nowhere to be found on the plate. Perhaps they were pureed into the flan itself, but in that case there wasn't enough to produce a banana flavor. The flan wasn't as smooth as it should be, but also not chunky to make it clear there was fruit in it. That item needs a revamp, or at least a menu revision. All in all, we left happy and would definitely return to Pueblo for dinner.

    I ordered the Puerto Nuevo style lobster, it was very very bland and chewy definitely not worth $48. My husband ordered the mole, also very bland. My daughter ordered the pozole which was also very bland. The drinks were okay nothing special. The oysters were very good. Atmosphere was nice.

    Came with a group reservation for 10 on a Tuesday, for Happy Hour 3-6. There were only a couple of people at the bar and I got the bartenders attention asking about the table. It was ready to go, we ordered and the bartender was very attentive. She ended her shift at 4:00 and we were given to a server. From that point on, we had to go find him if we needed anything. The food came out quickly and everyone mentioned the fish tacos being very good. It’s had great ambience, good food but due to the poor service we received, I don’t plan to visit again.
