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.
