In this modest, pink-walled Greenway restaurant, owners Eduardo and Monica Lopez specialize in the dishes of Guatemala and Mexico: succulent fish tacos, grilled chicken and scrumptious fried plantains. El Pueblito's cilantro-spiked salsa, which manages to be hot and cooling simultaneously, is in a class by itself.
This place thinks it is so special...they charge $500 to rent a cabana for Cinco de Mayo...WTH? the staff is rude..the owners are rude ...
the only thing you have going for you is MANGO PUNCH... otherwise, this would be a bust...
thanks but no thanks..would rather go to Mexico for $500....

Gotta be honest: Last time we went to El Pueblito, they only had one credit-card machine, which meant we had to wait a fortnight for them to run the cards for a large party who closed out ahead of us. Essentially, we were hostages. But what a damn fine patio to be a hostage on! When you're on that patio, you almost feel like you're in another country -- some lush tropical environ where there's no construction or congestion. There are cabanas for intimate dinners, and the little... More »
Sure, you could eat their delicious Guatemalan and Mexican dishes in a jail cell or a submarine and they'd still probably taste good, but you'll be doing yourself a disservice if you don't dine on the patio. It's like you're not even on the same continent. Tiki torches and string lights wrapped around lush palms provide intimate lighting, and the curtained cabanas are perfect for dinner with that special someone. Sitting there, stuffed, knocking back a cold Famosa and listening to beautiful... More »
When you sit outside at El Pueblito Place, you'll start believing you're on vacation in a foreign land -- especially after a couple of margaritas. Palm trees with Christmas lights, tiki torches and candles give the expansive patio a romantic feel, and there's always live music, usually Latin. If you're with your harem, you can sit in one of the raised platforms draped with white cloth and made cozy with couches and pillows. It's a nice respite when it seems that the whole world is flocking... More »
Is there smack in this salsa? No, of course not. But the addictive quality of El Pueblito's version of the condiment will make you wonder. At this Guatemalan/Mexican restaurant, owned by Eduardo and Monica Lopez, the salsa is more than just something to dip the chips in while waiting for your main course -- in fact, stopping there would be almost impossible. The mixture of fresh cilantro and ripe tomatoes makes everything on the varied menu taste even better than it does plain -- from the... More »
These sublime concoctions are undoubtedly best enjoyed alfresco, and to do so there is no place better than the Guatemalan/Mexican surf-and-turf, El Pueblito Place. First, there's the marg itself, which is tartly delicious as any in town and comes in large, extra large, and call-a-cab sizes. Then there are the cabana-comes-to-Montrose surroundings of the restaurant's new back patio, in which riots of pastel shades delight human eyes, and hanging plastic bags full of water bamboozle those of...
