"We've been frequenting Don Pablos for more than 12 years. This location is awesome! Great food, great people, and a fun atmosphere. They are very willing to do what it takes to make the experience great! Rob, Amanda, and Amy are always wonderful smiling faces."
"Stopped in Don Pablo's on International Drive during a business trip to Orlando. Very close to my hotel. Food was fine, typical chain Mexican. I ordered chicken fajitas. I really liked the Prairie beans which were spicy refried beans. Mexican rice wasn't great. Very wet and tasted like it was out of a cab, not typical Mexican rice. Service was fine. Price was moderate to low. Facility wasn't super clean but this is a chain, Mexican restaurant. Exactly what I expected."
"I used to have a Don Pablo's near where I live; It closed around 10 years ago. So when I am in the Orlando area I do my best to visit my favorite Mexican Restaurant. The waiters are very nice and professional. I have never been here and had a bad experience with them. The food is delicious, I recommend (for an appetizer) getting some (orange I think) queso and tortillas to dip in it. I like to get the BBQ pork sandwich with spoonbread. I defiantly recommend getting spoonbread it is amazing. Don Pablo's isn't perfect though, but if you are expecting the few problems it's not a big deal. First the exposed ventilation piping tend to drip condensation if the dew point is just right. The second problem is the men's bathroom always seems to be slippery... I don't know if it is just my shoes or not, but be prepared before you enter. Besides those two problem, I love Don Pablo's. It is most definitely my favorite Mexican Restaurant that I have been to. I highly recommend it.
Edit: I went to return to my favorite Tex-Mex restaurant on November 3, 2016 to find it closed. Now of course I started to panic. So I looked up Don Pablo's trying to find the next nearest location to find every location in Florida has closed... So... Now if I want to go to Don Pablo's I have a 13 hour drive to Virginia... If it magically reopens I still recommend it."
"Had lunch here today... the service is real bad...
I think the only reason they're still open is because of new vacationers visiting the area..
My family had lunch there today
They was very little few people there.
After 10 to 15 minutes we finally got to order.. at this time we still didn't have anything to drink.
the servers were more busy doing a comedy act for the girl's siting behind us.. they even had the cook from the kitchen talking to the girls
by his appearance he definitely needed to stay in the kitchen..
OK now the food experience....
my wife had the tacos Tuesday special it was flavorless and cold I had Enchaladas tasted like they just came out of box from the freezer...
but what was the most disappointing part was the server's the cook chatting with the girls right behind us.. I guess the manager wasn't there or maybe he could of stop it..
we new when the comedian server told the girl's give me your email address in I'll tell you were the good restaurants are.. because this one is terrible???? He said he needed all the extra money he could get to feed his four kid's?
So he sublets as a person who gives advice to eat somewhere better....
They really need a new staff...
Just horrible visit
"Great taste and great variety. Wanted to find a non touristy joint that had great flavor and this place delivered. Would be a mainstream stop over ifbI traveled to this area on a regular basis. Didn't rate it 5 stars, because no place is perfect in my opinion. 4 stars is about as good as it gets. "
