gift certificate policy unfair

We received our bill of $29.08 & I attached a gift certificate for $50. The waitress informed us that we could use the certificate but she will not be giving us any change in return. I said fine it doesn?t have to be cash just give me another certificate for the difference. She said no I cannot give you change if you use it and we will just need to use it the next time we dine over $50. I said baloney I should be able to use it now if I want to, I only dined here today because I had a certificate. And I should receive the $20.92 difference either by certificate or cash. And I asked her if she explained the rules to the purchaser and she said no but these are our rules. I said to her for the restaurant to keep change from gift certificates is not only ridiculous but theft. She then agreed (probably to get me rid of me) to give me a certificate for the change-- who knows if it will be valid later. Have dined here many times, food is not great but the patio is a tropical getaway. However I do not feel like returning anytime soon. I will mail the certificate to the owner with a request that they visibly post their policy of keeping customer s change when they use gift certificates so the purchaser can beware.

Multiple bad experiences with staff.

My girlfriend and friends have been going here for years. The staff for the most part has always been less than desirable, slow service and poor customer service in general. Not to mention that the Cocoritas, which are quite tasty, have had multiple price increases. They are no longer worth the 10-12 dollars they will charge you, yes, I said 10 to 12... the price magically fluctuates. Three of us stopped by sunday afternoon for lunch and cocoritas. We each had 2 cocoritas and food. We got the bill and it was 90 dollars, which is fine BUT as we we're paying our bill my girlfriend was about halfway through with her second Cocorita when she hit something with her straw. As she pulled it to the surface it was a receipt from CVS. As you can imagine she was pretty disgusted as we all were. We asked to speak to the manager. A woman manager was working this day, I dont recall her name, but wish I did. Anyhow she comes over and doesnt believe that this receipt was in the cocorita. She starts insinuating that we placed it in there. All we asked her to do was bring a fresh cocorita and she refused to do this. We pointed out that we had just spent over 100 dollars (tip included) and that it was ridiculous that she would think we placed this receipt in there. Eventually she brought out one of the house margaritas, but we were so disgusted at this point we just left. After dealing with such rude waitstaff (most but not all) and management time and time again, we will not be going here anymore. And just so you know, they do reuse the coconuts for the cocoritas. If you dont have the fresh white insides on yours it's used. Look in the coconut and if there are straw scrapes on the white, it's used... look inside the coconut, if you find a receipt... you are a liar and management will tell you so.

Watch you bill

My wife and I both ordered margaritas with our meal. I ordered the coco-rita, 10.95, and my wife ordered the lime-rita, 5.95. When we got the bill, the waitress charged me 12.00 for the coco-rita and 7.00 for the lime-rita. I had to show them on the menu that we were overcharged. Ultimately they changed the bill but, I am very upset because this is the second time this has happened to us. I think they are trying to overcharge people who might have had one too many.

My warning to anyone considering this restaurant.....

Great Patio with Horrible Service

The only reason I ever consider this place is to enjoy a nice Houston day on their patio. However, I always leave frustrated and saying that I will never go back. Houston has too many great restuarants with better food to put up with the horrible service you will inevitably get at El Pueblito.

Are we in Cancun?

Amazing atmosphere on the patio - love the salsa - good ritas - friendly staff - the inside decor is scary - but when you walk down the hallway to the patio - it feels like you should have sand in between your toes

Great atmosphere and Costal Mexican Cousine

This place is awesome!
The back patio is so much fun for a date, happy hour or just dinner with friends. The music is nice as well. A classic guitar and band rather than mariachi etc. The menu is pretty seafood based and the sides are phenominal. My Mahi Mahi came with grilled tomatoes and sauteed spinach with garlic. It's such a refreshing change from tex mex and refried beans. The margaritas are outstanding as well. The pina margarita comes in a coconut which is a little campy but it makes the margarita really yummy. Think lime and coconut rather than a pina colada.
Also, they have a sand volleyball court which they have recently added, and there are cabana type tables around it with cushions to lounge on. While I wouldn't suggest getting there too early in the summer, unless you want to play volleyball and drink all afternoon in the heat, it cools down nicely in the evenings and they have fans out as well. Definitely a great place and a hidden gem!

worst waitstaff ever!

ok, the ambience is great, the patio is really nice, but other than that the place is not all that. It took forever for our drinks and food to arrive, plus, they wouldn't give sufficient cups for all our guest to share when we ordered pitchers of margaritas...and they forgot to give my friend a dessert for her birthday after they continously promised that they would do so. Also, the waiters seemed to be annoyed whenever we would have a question over a particular dish..........kind of snooty. So all in all if you want to just drink then it's a good place to go with friends but don't expect good service
