It's a family owned business and when they started the business was half the size and yet it's still not big enough because there are people waiting to be seated every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.

If you like west coast style Mexican food, this is the place to go when in Shakopee, MN. They have a simple menu but the choices are endless. The service is excellent. Even when busy, the staff are hustling. Salsa is great and the spicy shredded beef is wonderfully flavorful. My family also enjoys the pork. The food is always... More

I ate here solo while in the area on business. The food and service was very good as well as the chips and salsa which is important to me. I had chicken and port burritos and they were very good. This is a better than average sit down Mexican restaurant and I would eat here again.

I love this place! They have a great selection to choose from (from the complimentary chips & salsa, to the queso, to the chimichangas). This family-run restaurant always delivers superb service and a delightful experience whenever I stop down there.

We have eaten at Pablo's for 20 some years already and have NEVER had a bad meal there once. We've tried pretty much everything on the menu and always happy with the food, the service, the whole experience!

Great mexican food, all homemade entrees, nothing ever frozen and reheated! Their homemade salsa is the best, I put it on everything!

Always great food and always great service. They have a bar and an outdoor patio, something for everyone. This is a Shakopee favorite and is very busy on Friday and Saturday evenings, but the wait is never too long. Endless chips and the BEST homemade salsa anywhere!

The food is priced right and good quality. Nice friendly staff and clean place to go. The outdoor seating is a nice bonus, not much of that available in shakopee.
