The salsa is very fresh and not cooked - just the way I like it. The food is good too - nothing to be excited about.

Pablo's has the best Mexican food around. The servers are very nice too - and I usually go every week. Jess is the best waitress in town.

Minnesota Mexican - everything on the menu is standard fare. There are far better places to get authentic Mexican food in Shakopee.

Atmosphere is great & waitstaff very helpful. My husband had the enchiladas & thought it was good ( but not as good as his favorite spot, Lone Spur ). I am not a fan of much Mexican food so I chose a fish taco. Not very good. The fish used was lightly breaded but very thin meat on the fish. So it tasted like a breaded nothing. I opted for a salad as my side. I asked about dressing choices & she recommended a green one ( forgot the name ). It was outstanding. If I go again to this restaurant, I will have a full salad & that yummy dressing.

I went for lunch with a group of co-workers. The service was good; the waiter was fun and jovial. The food however was unimpressive. This place must cater to the Minnesota idea of spicy. Everything we ordered was pretty bland including the "hot salsa." The dining room was very well decorated and festive.

We are sorry you didn't find the food satisfying as we take great pride in our family recipes and believe that while the food may not be as spicy as many would like we can cater to your order if you let our staff know what you are looking for. Spicy items include our Chile Verde sauce and if you want it hotter we can add fresh jalapenos or habanero to your order. Let us know if you come dine with us again as I would like to help you find what your taste buds are looking for. Edward Schwaesdall-Owner
