What a place! When you are impressed by the service, atmosphere, and the food then you know you got a major winner. The service was beyond amazing and attention to detail! The atmosphere is breathtaking.
We have a very good experience our waitress was very helpful! the food the place everything very well!!
This restaurant is really beautiful. Their staff is very friendly and efficient in their work.
Breakfast is always great. The staff is great as well they really make your experience a welcome one
Good, authentic, home style Mexican cuisine. Had a great meal today!
Lupita was the only waitress there and she was so sweet and helpful and very attentive to my kids and mother who also joined...my Birria Goat tacos were amazing...
If you like spice, and I mean hot, try the sauce that comes with the chips.
Two Words: Green Sauce. Nectar of the Gods.
This is one of the best authentic Mexican menus in North County. I've been going to this place for a long time and the food is great. The Saturday evening of music is always nice and adds to an authentic atmosphere. Go and try it yourself. You will love it.
Best Mexican restaurant in at. Louis. I have been going there for many years. I don't eat at any other Mexican restaurant. Love this place.
Pueblo Nuevo is our family's favorite restaurant. We have enjoyed their authentic home-cooked Mexican dishes since they opened in Hazelwood over thirty years ago. I had grandparents who lived in New Mexico who took me to eat in many authentic Mom and Pop restaurants in my youth. Pueblo Nuevo is even better than Albuquerque.
Fast, friendly service in a small, cozy setting. My favorite is the beef enchiladas with the green sauce. If you like spicy, you should try it. What I love is that it’s authentic food and not Tex Mex
My family and I have never been here before, and boy did we miss out for so long. This place is amazing! Great food, great service, price is reasonable. Proportions are massive and the chips and salsa were delicious. We had a great time and will be sure to go back more often. The chilaquiles were fantastic!!
We found this amazing little Mexican restaurant while visiting the area. We loved the food so much, we stayed a day later so we could enjoy the amazing food and atmosphere! Love it! I hope to visit again!
Great lunch specials and quick service make this a favorite of ours for quick lunch during the week. Great flautas and enchiladas. If you like a little extra spice, their green chili sauce is legit!
We had a very large group. We were served promptly and our orders were all correctly prepared. The food was good too.
The entertainer was engaging and added to a nice atmosphere.
Food and Drink are great!! People that wait on you are really friendly.
Amazing food. I get the spinach tamales and they huge and delicious.
We love Pueblo Nuevo! Food is authentic, Margaritas are delicious, service is great....live music Fridays and Saturdays!
Love this place, we've been coming for decades. Seat yourself, and go up to the cashier to pay rather than waiting at your table for the check. The chimichangas and empanadas are my favorite, though the tacos asada hold a special place in my heart too.
My husband and I had a graduation party for our daughter on June 22, 2019. We had over 100 guests. We used Pueblo Nuevo for catering. I can't compliment Pueblo Nuevo enough. They arrived on time and completely set up the buffet area. Our guests loved the food. The price was very reasonable for the amount of food we received. If we ever need catering in the future, we will use Pueblo Nuevo.
Good food. Liked the variety of unique dishes. The pollo chipotle was very good and the rice was great.
Love, love the food here! Best avocado dip ever! Red sauce was perfect tasting too. Been going here for over 15 years. Its family ran and the daughter that works there and waited on us is never friendly! They don't even check on how is the food? They don't give you your check. You have to ask them for it....but food is excellent! Will definitely be back!
Great food. Large portions. Good company. Great dessert...
Very casual family run place. Margaritas are great. You seat yourself and when you're done you go to the counter to pay. I usually get the tilapia or the ceviche, which are both excellent, but they also have all kinds of fattening cheese-coated deliciousness if that's what you're looking for. My husband and I eat here often. The flan is great for dessert.
Just celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary with a delicious lunch there today. As good as ever!
Great food! Quick service! Strolling minstrels!
Great tacos. Great margherita. One for me one for the boss!
I visited for the first time and will definitely return. The atmosphere brought back memories of the restaurants I frequented on both sides of the the Texas border many years ago. Having eaten cabrito many times, I tried the Birria and was not disappointed. This spicy dish was excellent and the meat was very tender. To top the evening off the solo singer was very good and enhanced the enjoyment.
Eek disregard last edit I accidentally clicked the wrong restaurant for the review. My apologies that edit was meant to be a review for Mexican restaurant down the street.
I'm not in this part of town often but the handful of times there was time for a sit down the food was delicious and fresh for the exception of one visit having an item that wasn't heated through however I highly recommend trying the tacos, tamales,flatas,chili rellano etc and if they still haven't maybe place signage saying you can seat yourself during slow hours if they walk away from the FOTH;my first three visits over the years there were no employees the first time, didn't know that if they aren't busy they won't show you to the table.
Every time we try a new restaurant, we order certain test dishes. If they can get these, we'll try more adventurous meals later. Pueblo Nuevo knocked them out of the park. Their tacos, enchiladas, and chimi's are consistently excellent, and the tamales are sublime. Service is also spot on, friendly and attentive without being smothering.
Great place. Mariachi trio was awesome. Reasonable prices
We really like this place for authentic Mexican food. It is family owned, very friendly good service. There is usually a wait but well worth it. My husband had two pork chimichangas and I had the Rajas plate with Lengua(tongue) added on top. The Margaritas are good too!
Very good food, and plenty of it. They have 2 sauces for they chips. The least hot is still a bit too hot for me. But good.
Pueblo Nuevo has been my family's favorite Mexican restaurant (actually it's probably our favorite restaurant of any kind) for years! It's our main go-to restaurant for special occasions & out-of-town guests.
Whether we dine in or order takeout, the food is always delicious, the service is good, the price is reasonable, and whenever they have live music they manage to strike a good balance between being entertaining but not overwhelming. I don't think we've ever had a poor experience.
All the food I've tried there is good, but my whole family's favorite menu item is the empanada. The little meat pies are filled with ground beef that's seasoned but not spicy, then fried to golden deliciousness. Everyone in the family usually orders at least one every time we go, and when we get takeout we usually just get 2 empanadas per person with sides of rice & beans.
Personally, I also really like their enchiladas.
Chilaquiles with chicken and green chili sauce is amazing. The guitar and violin duo made the evening perfect.
Love Pueblo! Great food, great service! Love to go for dinner & happy hour! The bartender, Gina, will take care of you with great service & will hustle to get what you need! Hands down, one of my favorite restaurants & bar for happy hour!
My family and I have been here several times. It is close to my grandmother's house and we have enjoyed it each time we've been here. Their food is amazing. The service is top notch. They are friendly and have multiple people helping you so you get your food, drinks, refills, etc quickly. We will continue to come back!!!
The best authentic Mexican food you can find in this area outside of Mexico
Food was good, service just okay. A friend and I met for lunch here. The waiter asked for our order and we were not ready due to us catching up. He asked a second time and we asked for 3 minutes and we would be ready. Took A lot longer than 3 minutes. We were looking and looking for him. He finally took our order. Food came out hot and the orders were correct. Two different people than our waiter gave us drink refills. Then had to find waiter again to get our bill. 4 stars for food and quickness of food.
Love Pueblo! Great food, great service! Love to go for dinner & happy hour! The bartender, Gina, will take care if you with great service & will hustle to get what you need! Hands down, one of my favorite restaurants & bar for happy hour!
Always love the authentic Mexican tastes. Love the Birria and the Ceviche, as well as their beans.
Excellent good would recommend to anyone who love Mexican food. I tried it for the 1st time a few day ago already going back for the 3rd time.
Food is always good but today it was not hot enough..tempature wise. Cheese dip wss still cold in the center. A little disappointed. Saw many flys...spray your restraunt at night after you close...needs a good cleaning too.
This place has the best Chile Con Queso I have ever tasted. The flavor is addictive! Everything I have eaten is really good. The sauces especially make their dishes special. The hubby enjoys the empanadas: both the beef appetizer and the apple one for dessert. The owners and staff are really nice people! Miguel is the best! The restaurant is in a strip mall on Lindbergh. Older building, not fancy but clean. Visit and order the Chile Con Queso!
I love a good mole! This place puts together a damn good mole! I can't really speak to much else besides their mole...but that's enough for me.
I was in for a business lunch and they were slammed. I ordered a couple of enchiladas with mole. The first was a shredded chicken. The mole was the star of the dish. The second one was ground beef. The mole was the star of the dish again. Both were perfectly fine and, if anything, the beef one was well above average but the mole was the star of the day, without a doubt.
What makes a good mole? I wish I knew! What I can tell you without a doubt is that I know it when I taste it. There is a complexity and layering of flavors that isn't found many other places. A good mole is made in-house (like their version) and takes hours and countless ingredients to prepare. The rest of the food on the table looked like the stuff your average Americanized Mexican joint serves but their mole...that alone will bring me back.
Note: a good number of my Yelp friends have had less than stellar experiences at this place. I went back and re-read their review and don't believe any of them had the mole. My number one recommendation? Get the mole!!!
Definitely not the typical Tex-Mex most of us in the states are familiar with. Everything I've had here is delicious so my only recommendation is to come often and try everything. Their refried beans are clearly home made (and not out of a can), as well as the tortillas, and needless to say, all else. And Mexican soda, too...!!!
This is a real gem of authentic Mexican food. In a strip mall the setting belies the quality of the food. Having been in its current location for well over 30 years the family run business has received a number of awards for the quality of the food and service. Generally a great family environment and a place for friends to meet in the evening it also provides a good lunch menu for the office personal and service workers needing a quality meal fast. Certainty worth the effort to make it a place to try.
Great food, nice place, great service, beautiful and smiley waitress. I'll go there for dinner whenever I'm in the Saint Louis area.
So authentic and best sauces in town. I love their empanadas.
Love this family owned Mexican restaurant! Large portions, reasonable prices, live entertainment, quick service. Separate bar area make it a great place for family and friends.
Been going there 35+ years. Wonderful family- run establishment. Great margaritas and good.
The best Mexican food I have ever had the service was excellent too we are new to the neighborhood and will definitely be going back!
Pueblo Nuevo is a laid back no frills family run Mexican restaurant and cantina that serves up good Mexican food at affordable prices. They have plenty of space for dining inside the restaurant or you can call in a carry out
My husband I dined there, for the first time, in the late afternoon, on a Saturday. We shared the Chicken Enchiladas (two) Platter and Two Chicken Chimichangas. Both plates came with refried beans and rice. The tender shredded chIcken filling was plentiful. Each plate was filled with a lot of tasty food and it was cooked to perfection.
We will dine there again and we will bring our adult children and our grandchildren when they come to visit us.
I've been coming to this restaurant for a very long time (give or take 20+ years) and I just got on Yelp. I wanted to review them on here and share how great they are. From the staff to the food it feels like family every time I come here. Every single dish is prepared with so much care. They have a wide variety of dishes from americanized to authentic Mexican food. Today I order a fish taco plate with rice and beans. The fish is fried to perfection, light and flaky, served on two corn tortillas. Topped with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and chipotle sauce. Comes with a side of pico da gallo to top it all off. If you are in the mood for great food stop in and enjoy!
Awesome food, friendly staff, we visit weekly..?????
I’ve been going to Pueblo Nuevo literally my entire life—my parents began going before I was even born. It’s always been an excellent restaurant with lovely servers and staff. The food is phenomenal.
Unfortunately, my last two visits left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. On both occasions, there were a half dozen or so inebriated people in the bar section shouting, quite literally, at the top of their lungs to one another. The first time, I made the mistake of making eye con...
My husband and I come here often (maybe twice a month) it is usually mostly empty with the exception of a few tables. Last time we went I believe was a Friday night and they were completely packed the restaurant and the bar, they had live music that went table to table, great entertainment. We almost always get the same things, I order the deep fried bean tacos, and my husband gets the carne asada. We always enjoy our food hear wish that there was slightly bigger portions or slightly lower prices but the food is always good. I'm not a fan of the salsa it's more of a liquid tomato sauce you have to add the hot "salsa" to it to give it flavor but not too much because it's very hot!! Everything else is great! You will enjoy this place.
We enjoyed our visit, we were serenaded by live music and singing. The food the tasty.
Great authentic Mexican restaurant. Staff is always friendly and the entertainment is super. Very reasonable prices and their food is outstanding.
This by far my favorite Mexican restaurant. I made the mistake of going to two different Mexican restaurants over the last month or so and today I was back to Pueblo Nuevo and I realized just how bad the other two were. I had the enchiladas plate with beef and green sauce and it was delicious as usual. My wife had the steak fajitas and loved every bite. There's something extra special about their beans that I just can't get enough. I ordered extra beans. If you're in the mood for Mexican food I HIGHLY recommend PUEBLO NUEVO!
Great authentic Mexican restaurant. Staff is always friendly and the entertainment is super.
Best Mexican restaurant in town
Great food great service great atmosphere
Have eaten here for years, their enchiladas verdes are the best anywhere. Good people, nice atmosphere. Will always be one of my favorites.
Wasn't as bad as everyone said. Food was good. I'm from so cal so I'm used to chunky salsa. You have to pay for that that was odd. But the hot sauce is good on the food and hot.
Hands down, my favorite Mexican restaurant in the St. Louis area. I’ve been coming here since I was (literally) an infant and moving 45 minutes away from it only made it all the more special. It’s still the first place I request to go on my birthday! Favorite menu items: empanadas, chimichangas, and black bean soup; and the homemade salsas and salad dressing; and the rice and refried beans. And ALL of the desserts are delicious!
Best mexican!! Authentic! I grew up going to this place. My family and I travel 30 minutes to get here. Its worth it. Love the chicken burrito. No better comfort food.
Always a good meal! Always friendly staff. This place is a staple in our family. We seat ourselves when we walk in & food usually comes out shortly after ordering. I wish our drinks would get refilled more often but other than that, we love this place!
Yummy food. Relaxed feel.
Always great food and service.
I love Mexican food and eat it at least once a week. If you like authentic Mexican food, this is your place. The best in St. Louis! If you like spicy foods, the green chili is a must try. Blue margaritas are so good. Also, the service is amazing, I’ve never had a bad experience. You will not be disappointed with anything you get. Highly recommmend!
Great family restaurant. The Mexican Grandma served us drinks. Much appreciated!
They were super busy and we still got great service! Live music added to the experience. The food was delicious!! I'm moving close soon, and happy to know where I'm getting my Mexican fixes already ???
I tried the spinach tamales. They were really good. I wish they had beef tamales though. They only have pork and spinach. My girl got the closest thing they have to Arroz con pollo, but she said the chicken was a bit salty. The service was good. Oh and if you dine in, plan on smelling like mexican food when you leave. I'd go back.
Phenominal food and even better service at a fantastic price.
They have the best food and margaritas in town!!!!
I would give it 5 stars, but the times I've been there the service from the "waitress" is not so great. At least attitude wise. Other than that, THE FOOD IS AMAZINGLY GOOD!
Great quality and great value. I didn't give it 5* for 2 reasons. 1) ambiance left something to be desired, and 2) while the flavors were solid, everything seemed very one-note (except the hot salsa, but that was too hot to really enjoy, IMO). All in all, this is a solid hole-in-the-wall mexican place, and I will be back!
Love this place, been coming here since I was a child. A lot of my best memories are here.
I had amazing service from Gina and the margaritas were on point.
I will go back,this is the best mexican restaurant in north county
Perfect party place. Had holiday party to plan & they came thru calling to confirm with me & providing party trays which satisfied in a convenient spot by the bar but away from the rest of the restaurant. Really can't remember last time I had a group that no one complained- Pueblo pulled it off. Drink specials & friendly space. Good food
Seriously love this place, since moving from Chicago to stl I’ve been looking for food that reminds me of back home, this place definitely warmed my heart, the staff was extremely kind, polite and friendly, I will be back..
Great food and great live music!
It's the best Mexican food i have ever had. The family that runs it is great. I love this place!
Best Authentic Mexican food around. Staff is friendly and even if they are extremely busy the food is always brought out hot and fast and we never have to ask for refills on drinks they are very attentive. The atmosphere is great and they even have live music on certain nights. Wonderful family owned restaurant
Great staff and great food a great destination to enjoy friends and food.
Always great food, from a family owned business.
Lo más que me gustó fue la parranda de Navidad de los Puertorriqueños,,deberían tener más a menudo esos eventos con los boricuas.
Great - The Hidden Treasure
Pueblo Nuevo is a great Mexican Restaurant here in St. Louis. Some say it is the hidden treasure here in S. Louis because it is a ver small Mexican Restaurant. I would say this Restaurant is up there with the best of the best of Mexican Restaurants here in St. Louis. The food is Authentic and not that type of So called Authentic that you get a Casa Gallardo or El Maguey - this is real Mex. food and is cooked and owned by Mexicans. Also please keep the owner in your prayers who has just passed away. Pros: Average Cost, Great Food, Not Usually Crowded Cons: Service sometime Slow
Best in Town
Pueblo is fantastic and our favorite restaurant. The food is authentic - always fresh and prepared with a love for mexican culture. My husband says it is the only food he's had in a restaurant that reminds him of his mother's cooking. The menu has a wide variety of dishes, and everything is great. This is a family operation, so feel free to bring your kids. On weekends they also have one or two guitarists. They recently expanded, so seating isn't a problem. Pros: great food, reasonable prices, friendly
The Real Thing
The verde enchiladas here are worth driving from whatever location you're coming from -- they're definitely 5-alarm! You can purchase a tequila sucker with a worm inside at the counter, if that sort of thing thrills you. (I passed on this thrill.) The chips are wonderfully freshly made and hot, the salsa is tangy (two versions). Too bad the Velvet Freeze still isn't next door: That made for a wonderful ""Part Two"" to an evening at Pueblo Nuevo. Pros: Good $ value, Lots of parking
It's the green sauce stupid!
A friend introduced me to Pueblo Nuevo over 10 years ago and I've been a repeat customer ever since. I've tried different things on the menu and never had anything I didn't like, but I keep coming back to the enchiladas with green sauce. To die for! The staff is friendly and service is good. The prices have crept up over the years keeping me from visiting as much as I might like. It's my favorite Mexican restaurant in the St. Louis area. Pros: Tasty food, great service Cons: It's gotten a little pricey over the years.
Best Authentic Mexican Food
I've been going to Pueblo Nuevo for many years and absolutely love their food. Those folks who go to eat Mexican at Casa or El Maguey are getting the Americanized style of Mexican food. Pueblo Nuevo is the closest to authentic that I have had in St. Louis. Many times that I've been there I've seen folks from Mexico also eating there. I don't see this at the other restaurants! Pros: fresh, authentic food
Love their crunchy tacos! Add the dark red Mexican hot sauce, and you have Hot Tacos! We get them almost weekly
i'm going to have to agree with that HOTfive. the green enchiladas are pretty special, those margs are pretty drinkable & i'll tell you one more thing.....you will NEVER have a cactus salad as good as this one.
If the whole "Burritos as Big as Your Ass" thing is your idea of authentic Mexican food, or if you can't wrap your mind around the concept of "hot sauces" in lieu of salsa, please avoid Pueblo Nuevo; there are hundreds of places that can accommodate your conditioned predilections.
For myself, I'll keep coming to Pueblo Nuevo at least once every time I'm down St. Louis way for reasons beyond my capacity to precisely explain them. I'll say that I haven't found any Mexican restaurant that does things quite the way they do; that Pueblo Nuevo's Green [Chicken] Enchiladas are simply the best I've ever had, and even better than themselves when the day's green sauce is a particularly spicy batch; that their margaritas are JUST RIGHT--pale yellow, not too sweet/sour, and more potent than they taste; that their fish tacos are deliciously, slightly sweet and/or tangy; that there must be a little peanut butter in their refried beans, which gives their flavor a little something extra; that the rice is perfectly PLAIN--not some unnatural shade of orange, nor full of vegetables or "spanish rice" additives; and that I don't mind in THE LEAST that the service is spotty, that the "atmosphere" is only a short step up from that of a cafeteria, and that its location is at the end of an asphault-entrenched strip mall--but I can't say whether you'll feel the same way about those potential drawbacks. Still, I encourage your giving it a try. It's quite honestly my favorite restaurant anywhere.
Authentic Mexican-Just how it is suppose to be. Great food, great prices. Family ran, always friendly, sometimes they are busy so you have to get the servers attention, but they are always responsive. We love it.
This is the best Mexican restaurant in St. Louis. My favorite is the pork enchiladas with green chile sauce. I also order the carne ranchero, and chile rellano. There are many other good things to order as well. I find it hard to not order one of those three though.
Best Mexican restaurant hands down. Great food and great family who owns it.
Mexican is my favorite cuisine and Pueblo Nuevo is my favorite Mexican restaurant. It is is absolutely delicious -- I go every chance I get. I like their burritos covered in cheese and green sauce (spicy!) or their chimichangas. Service is always prompt and friendly. My only complaint is their salsa, both choices are completely liquid and that sort of creeps me out. However, that will never stop me from coming back. I leave feeling like a complete cow each time. (That's a good thing).
I really don't know which restaurant all you displeased people visited. We're talking about the same place, right- the small, family-run restaurant at Lindbergh and 270? Someone complained about the dead cacti. Another person complained that the sauces came in squeeze ketchup bottles. Look, if your main concern when dining is the decor, you are completely missing the point of Pueblo Nuevo. However, if you are looking for fresh, spicy, flavorful food, Pueblo Nuevo is one of the best bets around. The spicy hot sauce, which does, indeed come in a ketchup squeeze bottle (oh, the horrors it strikes in the hearts of the trendy diner), is absolutely, knock-your-socks-off good- flavors just bursting in your mouth like Pop Rocks- delicious. The sauce has a kick to it, but unlike many hot sauces, the flavors are really complex. And yes, the sauce is more of a sauce, and less of a thick salsa, but as I understand, this type of sauce and chips is pretty typical of the area the owners originate from in Mexico. The red burrito, chock full of tender white chicken and cheese and bathed in fresh tomato sauce, makes your mouth think it was just smacked with a tomato. Wowsa. The refried beans, which I am pretty sure are made with some sort of animal fat, are creamy, smoky, and flavorful. Even the moist, texured rice is great, and I am not much of a rice eater. My husband is partial to the chorizo, so I can't say much about that, expect he orders it every time. Obviosuly there are a lot of pleased customers out there, because the dining room is close to full each time I visit. Listen to your tastebuds!
Pueblo Nuevo, for a St. Louis Mexican restaurant, is to me second only to some of the taqueiras on Cherokee Street. It's definitely the best Mexican restaurant in the NoCo. I am in love with their salsa, but you do have to like it spicy. To me it's so much better than the mild watered-down salsa most Mexican restaurants serve around here. I haven't gotten too adventurous with the menu, but I will say that the empanadas and the chilequiles never disappoint. If you like it spicy, this is your joint right here.
Great great place.
I've not been in a long time, since Mi Lupita is closer to me (and I've now moved away from St. Louis) but this is a great restaurant.
What I remember are pork enchiladas in green sauce that will curl your toes. Really spicy, amazing chile flavor, and delicious pork. It's difficult to order anything other than this. Plus, their mole is the best I've had. dark, nutty, not too sweet, not too chocolatey, with a good amount of heat. They serve it on some semi shredded chicken, and it melts in your mouth. It's also available as an enchilada sauce, but I always got it with the chicken - less to get in the way of that flavor.
They had opened a "Pueblo Nuevo West" that was much closer to me (and for a time, was a regular Friday night destination) but it closed under unknown circumstances - they were never hurting for business, that's for sure. I wish they'd bring it back...I can still taste the mole.
I can't give this 5 stars becuase I do think Mi Lupita is better. But if you want great Mexican, check this one out. The place is small though - be ready to wait. Hint: it's worth it.
I love this place. Their chimis are the best in the stl area. They're nice and flaky on the outside with moist chicken or pork on the inside. It's so simple and delicious.
So I decided to try the beef tongue taco here and it was pretty gosh darned awesome. Man. I started evangelizing that stuff almost immediately, from coworkers, fellow yelpers, and to the lovely wife.
We were headed up buy the Mills anyway so I convinced her to stop by here. Man I hate traffic in the area... but fortunately, I was familiar with the back roads. Anyway... this is how the conversation went...
Wife: "Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"
*takes bite *
"oh woooow....blah blah blah blah"
Don't shake your head at me, I remember EXACTLY what she was talking about!
Unfortunately, I was too full to get the fruit empanada but the next day I met up with Stephanie S because you know what, their food is just that good to eat on consecutive days...
Canned guava and cream cheese empanada! WOOOOO! It was pretty freaking awesome with a side of ice cream. This, coupled with the beef tongue tacos, are totally going to convince the lovely Lady up to this place more often.
St. Louis has only a handful of decent Mexican restaurants - this is the best. Forget all those imitators in Dogtown and elsewhere, and especially forget that tragic joint in Rock Hill...buckle up and take a ride to North Lindbergh.
Authentic Mexican dishes, homecooked by the same Mexican family for 20 years. Come on the weekend and be serenaded by a terrific duo as well. Enough said.
The best authentic Mexican in all of St. Louis. The chimichangas are the best I've ever had. Everything is scratched made, and piles if meat aren't just left simmering on the flattop like most "Mexican" restaurants. I'm not as adventurous as many of my friends that rave over the local, authentic dishes. Check it out for that as well if that's your cup of tea. Service can be hit and miss, but doesn't matter as the FOOD IS SO GOOD! It's right off the highway, so you have no excuse not to check it out, regardless of where you live.
I've never had a bad experience at Pueblo. The menu offers simple, authentic fare which is a nice change from most other Mexican restaurants who seem to offer almost cut & paste versions of the same menu as every other restaurant. The food and service is very consistent, and very good. I've yet to visit the bar (which is kept separate from the dining room), but it seems modern and complete and hosts a number of TVs set on various sports channels. The amazing hot sauce is also worth mentioning; many people are used to salsas with thick tomato chunks- the salsa at Pueblo is more of a paste, but it's stellar. I recommend this place to all of my friends who are looking for new Mexican restaurants to try.
A soon as I walked in the door at Pueblo Nuevo, I knew I was going to like it. It kind of looks like a restaurant you'd find in a small town with it's vinyl tablecloths and tables all in rows, but the aroma here is like no other place in town, and it really seemed very familiar. I've been to so many Mexican restaurants over the years, I couldn't place it at first. After a while it came to me, though: my first job was at a Mexican restaurant and this place had the same smell. I'm guessing the cooks here must have come from the same part of Mexico, because the food I ordered - chicken enchilada in verde sauce plus beans and rice - also brought back memories. Pretty sure those guys were all from Mexico City.
The style of cooking appears to be different than some of the taquerias around town, but not in a bad way at all. The deep red salsa was awesome - HOT, but so tasty I couldn't stop eating it. It's been a while since I left a restaurant with my tongue in so much pain - you might want to ask for a glass of water along with your drink. That enchilada, though, WOW. The best I've had in St. Louis hands down, maybe anywhere. The beans were very good also. Rice seemed to be a higher quality than usual, but not much flavor.
Bottom line - if you like Mexican food, go try the chicken enchilada verde today. It doesn't get any better than this.
I know a lot of my Yelp friends have been here and I had a chance to "go north" for lunch and wound up eating here. They came out with their chips and salsa. I did not know the red bottle was super hot and the other was mild. I can only tell you the red bottle knocked me out. It was so hot it changed my voice. I know to Stephanie S it was just mild to her. LOL!
I had a cup of chicken rice soup that was home made. It had so much chicken in it you could call it a stew. Very good. For lunch I ordered the Birria which is goat meat marinated, boiled, then roasted. It was served with the fried beans and corn tortilla. This dish was more of a soup than a plate. I have read that the food can be bland and goat is the anything but bland. Well after you soak it, boil it and roast it goat is bland this would qualify. It is not as pungent goat I have had in the past. I feel this is one of those 3.5 stars places but the price sure makes it a great deal.
The service was good not great but in my opinion what you are going to get in a place like this. So if you want to say you tried goat and have the mildest tasting goat I have ever had this is your place.
Good food, reasonably clean, fair pricing. We went as a group at lunch time. Salsa and chips were good. I got carne Asada and enjoyed it. Would probably go back.
Everything here is always delicious, but my favorite is the empanadas! The rice is so good, and the chips and salsa are perfect.
Being a Southern California native and growing up in Mexican neighborhoods I can say this place reminds me of home. I had the carne asada tacos with onions and cilantro. They let me try all three salsas on the side to see which one paired best with the tacos. If your missing Mexican food because you live in the mid-west, then this place is for you.
Pueblo is my favorite Mexican restaurant in St. Louis!!! The margaritas are absolutely the best. The food is always hot and I am never disappointed. My boyfriend always gets a mix of different tacos and I get the chimichanga - never regret it!
I eat here all of the time and we also use them to cater food to our company regularly. Always good consistent quality and quick service. Recommend for sure
I've been coming here for nearly 2 decades, and the food is AMAZING. Like CONSISTENTLY amazing. The service is crazy fast and super friendly, I would honestly give them 5,000 stars if I could. I love Pueblo, keep it up!
The best Mexican food in STL. If you like spicy, try either a pork burrito or pork enchiladas with their homemade green sauce. You won't be disappointed! I also love their homemade empanadas! DELICIOUS!
We were in the Florissant area and decided to try this place out and are we glad we did! The green pork burritos are just like the ones we used to get in Arizona. Uber delicious! The chips and salsa are almost just as impressive. It's a 45 minute drive from our house but we will cheerfully make that drive again!
Fabulous food, service was pretty good and the prices were very reasonable. I will be returning for sure!
Love this place. We visit this area once a year and have at least two of our dinners here. I love the mole poblano. Really flavorful. Enchiladas are excellent too. I have been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. The entertainment is great too. If you want consistently good food try this place.
The food is excellent. It is a mixture of standard American perceived Mexican food, but has tastes of something you might find on the dinner table in Mexico. They have a mole burrito which is good. I've had the Carne Asada and it was delicious. The rice and beans are standard. The salsa comes in two options, very, very mild and very, very hot. It's purely liquid-based with no diced veggies in it. Chips are plentiful and well prepared. Margaritas are really good. Service usually stinks. Either they are over crowded and under staffed or they don't have to be great at it? Not sure. Thus the 4-star rating. I will say that when I sat in the bar area the service was top notch.
I have always liked Pueblo Nuevo. Visited on Saturday and it had been a long, long time. They expanded the bar area even larger, and the restaurant section has always been about the same. Other reviews point out the service can be lacking, and I agree. I've never had a major problem, but service is never fantastic.
My favorite dish is the Pueblo Nuevo Platter (combination of empanada, burrito, and taco). The empanadas are outstanding, always. Personally, I really like the salsa / hot sauces they bring with the chips. The spicy one is great. It works for me, but some people might find the salsa a little thin for their liking. House margarita is ok.
Great dinner last night with my good buddy Leon. Gina was outstanding as the bartender & server all by herself. I had a beef burrito with red sauce & 2 soft tacos. One beef & one pork. #margaritas
Excellent food, terrific fast service, best Mexican restaurant in St. Louis. I've been coming to Pueblo for over ten years and I am yet to find a better place to eat. Tonight was yet another fun trip there for me, great food, reasonable prices, and superior service.
I would recommend this place to anyone who loves authentic Mexican cuisine. If you are looking for the best Mexican restaurant that also has a killer happy hour and is close to Lambert International Airport-look no further! I have always gotten a great meal and great service from them.
I met some out of town friends there this evening, and it was as great as I was used to. Krystal was bar-tending and she never missed a beat. She answered all of out menu related questions accurately as well as providing some advice that was spot on. The food arrived quickly and was flawless.
Excellent place +1 and 5/5 stars-like normal!
Excellent Mexican restaurant....my favorite. Love the Enchiladas Platter (I get chicken)...refried beans and rice are the best I've had--and I've been to more than a few Mexican restaurants. Very casual atmosphere--seat yourself and stop by the register to pay on the way out. Highly recommended.
Service is getting better but still a little rough. I don't go for the service. The food is great. Live music on the weekends from local artists. Good family atmosphere that everyone can enjoy.
