Great Guac, Ok Margaritas, Bad Food.
I was not a fan of Pueblo (it just didn't live up to all the hype). But, the guacamole was one shining star in the otherwise dim meal. Learn more about why I feel this way by checking out my post about Pueblo Solis on my blog, "For the Love of Food"

Too long a wait. Went in evening and was seated immediately. Waitress said she would be there soon - finally came back and took drink and dinner orders. Drinks arrive 10 minutes later only 2 of 3. Waited another 10 minutes for third. We waited an hour and fifteen minutes for dinner and was being told the kitchen was behind and only a few minutes more. We finally walked out. I can't tell you if the food was good or not but had plenty of chips and salsa. Never saw a manager, only waitress every once in a while just to come by to say sorry.
This was our second visit and WOW, WHAT A Difference. THe pinto bean soup we had this time had NO FLAVOR. the spices were lacking. Salt and pepper helped a bit... The beef fajitas were tough and also without seasoning. The margaritas were watery and had no lime flavor or tequila. My wife never received the second beer she ordered.
Our complaints were acccepted but no responsibility was accepted. . The manager explained that the taste differed depending on who was cooking. ??????
WE paid our bill and fed the fajita"s to the dogs
My absolute fav mexican. my absolute fav mexican resturant in STL! Love that it's in my neighborhood - we always try to walk there bc the bartender makes great/strong margharitas. family friendly. Service can be spotty but they've expanded the resturant with an outdoor patio and more room indoors so that's been helping. great to eat in or carry out (they're on my speed dial). you've never had
There is no better Mexican in St. Louis.
My in-laws introduced us to this places a few years ago, and we?ve been hooked ever since. When it was smaller, there were sometimes long waits on weekends. However, they?ve since expanded the dining room twice, and I can?t recall waiting more than 5 min to be seated no matter what day of the week or time of the evening we?ve visited for at least two years.
Kevin is a gem! We always request to sit in his section because he?s so nice & attentive. The guacamole, fresh chips & salsa, and margaritas ? which are made WITHOUT nasty sweet & sour mix ? are all outstanding. Unlimited chips & salsa are free. The salsas are always made from the same recipe, but the hotness levels vary based on the season. The waiters typically do offer guacamole, and the price of it is listed right on the menu. I?ve never seen a Mexican place where that was just given away ? avocados aren?t cheap.
I haven?t tried anything on the menu that?s not great. Someone complained about the portion sizes. I don?t understand this. I always have enough food to make two meals, and it?s still good reheated the next day, and that?s considering I avoid the specials, which could probably feed me for 3-4 meals.
I visited the Southwest a couple of years ago, and had authentic Mexican in New Mexico, Arizona & California. I didn?t find any place that was better than Pueblo Solis, but did find a few that paled in comparison.
A Great find. Having recently moved here from LA, I have longed for good Mexican food. I would say now that I have found it. The atmosphere is cozy, the staff very friendly and the food top notch. I am amazed as some of the posts have talked about rude service. I disagree...my experience was quite the contrary. We experienced very friendly and attentive waiters. The chips and salsa are amazing. They present 3 different salsas that are fresh and very tasty. I ordered the combo plate and everything was fresh, and served hot. The sopapilla desert was amazing with an incredible raspberry sauce on top of a cinammon sopapilla topped with fresh mango, blueberries and ice cream. The margaritas are great too. I highly suggest this place. I am looking forward to going again and sitting on the outdoor patio.
Avoid period. We went there having heard great reviews and despised this place. Slow service. Terrible food. It was definately not Mexican. It was not Tex Mex. It was someone's convoluted idea of Mexican. The WORST Mexican place in Saint Louis.
Not good!. Very overpriced! Also we waited over 45 minutes to get our food and it was horrible! The service was ok at best. The food was just plain, small portions, and just not good. I love mexican food, but this place was bad! We came from Chesterfield to eat there because it was so recommended...should have went to Taco Bell!
Yikes! Rapidly rolling downhill.. We were very impressed the first couple of times we came to Pueblo Solis. Then, not so much. We just went today, and it was a nightmare. Our waiter, Kevin, was inexplicably rude. Even though there were hardly any other tables, we felt very rushed. He also seemed determined to convince us to order much more food than we wanted, and wouldn't leave us alone long enough to enjoy our meal. Speaking of the meal, the food quality has deteriorated. The formerly delicious sopes were rock hard, the longhorn cheese was rubbery, the rice was mush. Such a shame! We used to really love this place. I hope they get it back together; until then, we will go elsewhere.
Wrong Atmosphere, Bad Service, & High Prices. I am a native Texan and a Mexican-American, so I have experienced great Mexican food. I had heard a lot of good things about this place, so my wife and I decided to try it out. The first thing I noticed was the dimmed lighting. Not your typical atmosphere. Mexican food can make one a bit drowsy, so the lack of lighting did not help the situation. Once we got seated, the waitor was quite rude. He was trying to rush us though everything and was critical to the changes that I made which were not much. For example, I am not a big fan of Chihuahua cheese, so I told him that I did not like it. He came back with, "I would not recommend that choice." He isn't the one eating the food. Once we got the food, I actually thought it was pretty good. I did not, however, care for the rice. It was extremely overcooked, mushy, and very bland. The last thing I could not understand, it how expensive the food was compared to typical Mexican food. The traditional type dishes were about $9-10 when they should be priced about $6-7. One item on the menu in particular was way over priced. I could not believe that someone would have enough courage to charge over $9 for a bowl of Menudo. It is probably made with the cheapest ingrediants of anything on the menu and should have been appropriately priced around $5. I will have to think long and hard before I would make a return visit.
