THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Don Pablo's, The Real Enchilada Restaurant Review

: Suggestive of ranchos and rancheros, bandidos and tacos, this small group of Tex-Mex eateries is as much about cheery ambience as about food. You’ll find that plenty of the dishes are more north than south of the border, but as the menu states, this was grub cooked for Texas cowhands. It’s plain and simple fare---with some notations about fat grams---that won’t win gold medals, but it obviously appeals to a mass crowd of the young and hungry and those in between. We can recommend the chiles rellenos, the refried beans and the freshly made tortillas. There’s plenty more here to whet your whistle and curb your appetite, from freshly made lemonade to iron-skillet pie. Prices are reasonable, flavors fine, atmosphere fun: That equals a good night out. Other locations.
