THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pablo's Restaurant Review

: Set amid the massive cluster of retail stores and eateries in the southeast corner of The District at Tustin Legacy, Pablo's gives its guests plenty of space to grab one of the oversize margaritas, enjoy tasty bowls of chips and salsa, and enjoy a leisurely meal. Executive chef Eric Nicewarner helms a kitchen dedicated to crafting fresh interpretations of traditional Mexican favorites and house specials highlighting the Michoacán region. Begin your meal with the queso fundido stuffed with mushrooms or sausage and served with house-made tortillas. Heartier appetites may also want an order of the thick, tostada-like sopas piled high with chicken, cabbage and Oaxacan cheese. Main dishes range from generous portions of classics like carnitas and chile verde to harder-to-find entrées like spicy shrimp diablo and chilaquiles. Make an effort to save some room for dessert, so you can dive into the rich tres leches cake.
