Open on Sunday's and that is a bonus in this town cause not much else is open. Good chips and salsa.

El Pueblito's has good food. But the flavor has changed on some of the menu items. I can one time & it's the normal awesome enchiladas the next time it tastes almost like Chef boy ardy sauce poured on top. I can no longer expect the same quality at every visit. Which is a shame because it was my fave... More

Went there for lunch a few weeks ago. The service was great. The chips and salsa came to the table right away. (super important) Good salsa. I had the taco/enchilada combo and I loved it. The queso dip was a little thin and bland, but I really enjoyed everything else, as did all in my party. Would definitely return.

Took awhile to seat our large group but the food was good and the server was nice. Food came out fast and they were quick to refill drinks.

There are several branches of this restaurant in the geographic area. I most often eat at the Chanute location. It is comforting to know that I can go into the Independence El Pueblito and order off the menu . . . .and know what I am going to receive. They are consistent with their recipes and presentation. It is also... More

Good food served quickly. Love the enchiladas Supremes. Good amounts of food form the money. Have tried several items all are good.

The food is not too bad. It is heavy on the cheese, but I like cheese! There is a large variety. The staff is friendly and generally quick to take care of your needs--very accommodating. The times I have been in to eat, El Pueblito has been very, very busy, and I go in at odd times when I would... More

I eat here often. The staff is friendly and the food is reliably good. They have recently remodeled and added a bar. The margaritas are pretty decent. Try the chicken chimis or the chilaques. ❤️ this place!

We had a large group for our meal and had great service and food. The staff were very accommodating. The food was excellent and they had frosty mugs for extra cold beer. This is the best Mexican restaurant in Independence and will return.

Thank Bilver
