This is the most authentic Mexican I've been able to find in Charlotte. I love that they also have the location in the Rock Hill Mall. The food never let's us down!

Sometimes is kind of hard to find authentic mexican food in other countries, so I could say that the food in this restaurant tastes as real mexican food, I would recommend.

We have been looking for good authentic Mexican food since moving to Charlotte in November. We've found places that are definitely good food but not like I remember from when I lived in Mexico. La Poblanita had the best guacamole we've probably ever had... Certainly anywhere in Charlotte. Could have made a meal of just that! The service was great.... More

We had a nice lunch and the food was ok but the service was very slow. Every time we needed something; a napkin, more chips, a drink refill, it took 5 minutes... way too long for the return to our table.

Stopped in for a quick bite while traffic calmed down and found a gem of a restaurant. My husband had the chicken chipotle chimichanga (which he loved) and I had tacos. The corn tortillas for the tacos are homemade and delicious! The waiter was very friendly and brought us various salsas to try. They were all so fresh and fantastic!... More

The food is fresh and definitely authentic Mexican. The wait staff is friendly and keeps the chips and salsa filled. The portion size is nothing short of gigantic, and there is plenty there for take home for a second meal. The food was hot and delicious. I will definitely be returning to this restaurant the next time that I am... More

The La Poblanita that we ate at is located on Westinghouse Blvd; supposedly they have moved. We drove by their unimpressive building and saw that the parking lot was full at lunch time and decided to give it a try. WOW - real Mexican food prepared by Latinos, and the menu was not like all of the chain-food menus. Great... More

This was our second trip to Rock Hill and we had to go eat here again! The chicken chimichanga is huge, and delicious, enough for two people. My husband got tamales and they were very good. Very clean food court and mall, and restrooms. There is a play place for kids next to it which is awesome, you can let... More

My wife and I went here on a whim while taking a mini-vacation to Carowinds. We arrived in Fort Mill the evening before our big day at the park, and decided to hit something close to our hotel and Mexican. First of all, the photograph showing a Roasting Grill, brick store front is completely misplaced. How the heck it got... More
