If you like your burrito, taco, enchilada, taquito to all taste the same - don't miss Pablos! Also, if watery salsa and reluctant wait staff make your day, give this place a try!

Mr. GordonGecko we thank you for your review but ask how a taco, burrito and enchilada can all taste the same when they are made with different types of tortillas and have offerings that are different in each item. We take great pride in our service and food and are confused by what you mean by reluctant wait staff as... More

I have grown up in the area, but had not heard of Pablo's until recently. For Mexican food I had always gone to a similarly named place in Eden Prairie. When my parents suggested Pablo's, I decided to give it a try. Man was I missing out all these years! If you are looking for fancy Mexican food, this is... More

My husband and I were running errands in this area and stopped by to try it out. The service was world class and so was the food. The guacamole was super fresh and both our dinners were served fast. There was a mixup with my husbands dinner, they were quick to resolve and even discounted our meal. We definitely will... More

It's a family owned business and when they started the business was half the size and yet it's still not big enough because there are people waiting to be seated every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.

If you like west coast style Mexican food, this is the place to go when in Shakopee, MN. They have a simple menu but the choices are endless. The service is excellent. Even when busy, the staff are hustling. Salsa is great and the spicy shredded beef is wonderfully flavorful. My family also enjoys the pork. The food is always... More

I ate here solo while in the area on business. The food and service was very good as well as the chips and salsa which is important to me. I had chicken and port burritos and they were very good. This is a better than average sit down Mexican restaurant and I would eat here again.

I love this place! They have a great selection to choose from (from the complimentary chips & salsa, to the queso, to the chimichangas). This family-run restaurant always delivers superb service and a delightful experience whenever I stop down there.

We have eaten at Pablo's for 20 some years already and have NEVER had a bad meal there once. We've tried pretty much everything on the menu and always happy with the food, the service, the whole experience!
