Good Tex Mex, great happy hour specials and a live mariachi band on Tuesday. Not a large place, so the music fills the room. They played everything from traditional mariachi songs to the Orange Blossom Special, requests encouraged. A fine time!

Good Tex-Mex food with GREAT mariachi band (Tuesday night only). Excellent service. I probably overtipped the band, but the 6 musicians in the tiny restaurant was a lot of fun.

My wife had a chicken salad and the chicken was like leather... Over processed, and over cooked...I had the basic enchilada that was covered with a white bland sauce... Had to add hit sauce to give it any flavor... Oh yes the salsa tasted like chunky ketchup... Very disappointed...

I eat here often, and I usually only choose from the same two meals. I'm a Mexican food snob, and this place isn't authentic Mexican, but rather Tex Mex. bagged chips, and tortillas and jarred salsa.

My wife & I went due to many friends recomending that we go here. The restaurant is tucked away in a strip mall, so it looks unassuming. The decor is nice, very friendly wait staff & management. The food was really good & we'll be back again!

It's far from authentic, so if you like Tex-Mex, it's okay. Servers are friendly and are good about refills on drinks.

I call it MI Pueblo 2 since i.have always gone to the one on university and Tuttle. This is my second visit to this restaurant and the food was delicious. We had a charming server, the ticket said #33. She did a great job. I had the burrito and it was enough for two but I ate the whole thing... More

I rated this location average because our food was cool and my wife's order was wrong. Typically we go to the Venice location, thought we would try the Bee Ridge location. Venice has been VERY noisy lately however, Bee ridge was no better. As with most Mi Pueblo's the food was tasty, service was fast, prices fair and the place... More

Portions were perfect and dessert was an added greatness! I love Mexican food as well as my son, so I know we will be back! The location is... More

MI Pueblo is a locally owned Sarasota fixture and has been around for well over 20 years. Over those years it has expanded from the small strip mall restaurant serving only beer and wine to two full sized restaurants one in Venice and one in Southern Manatee County both of which have full bars and free chips and salsa.
