First off, Pueblo Viejo's staff is extremely professional and friendly. We didn't have to wait in getting a table. We were greeted with smiles and given an option were to sit. The restaurant was clean and colorful. The menu had many different choices to choose from (maybe too many to excel at them all) at reasonable prices. We were given fresh chips and salsa, and again, the employees are very attentive! If we need more chips and salsa or drink refills they were on it without us having to ask. So, why only 3 stars for this Mexican restaurant? The food, don't get me wrong, the food isn't bad it's just nothing special. Pueblo Viejo's dining experience is memorable, but their food is not; it gets lost in the sea of all the other bland Mexican restaurants. Pueblo Viejo's didn't excel in flavors or taste to separate themselves from the rest of the typical chain restaurants.

We are from New Mexico and have been visiting mexican restaurants all over Colorado Springs. This restaurant was rated high on this site so we thought we'd give it a try. The chips and salsa were standard. The salsa was a bit watery and the refried bean liquid was interesting as a dip for the chips. We tried combo plates and they were pretty good. Nothing like we are used to in New Mexico. The masa on the tamale was a bit mushy and the refried beans were like baby food. No texture. I will say that the service was exceptional! Overall it was just ""ok"".

We went for an early dinner, so the restaurant wasn't crowded. We got excellent, friendly service, and were delighted that the music over the speakers was loud enough to enjoy, but low enough to carry on a conversation in normal tones instead of the shouts requied in some places.
The menu had a great variety, and although we had our favorites, we look forward to going back and trying the other dishes. I've had better food (at much higher prices) but the overall experience was the best I' ve known in recent years.

I enjoyed eating at this restaurant and the mix of hispanic population in this restaurant made me feel confident that the food would come out great. My husband was thrilled to see vegetarian fajitas on the menu and they were heaping full of good stuff. What big plates! The restaurant is nice and the food is pretty good compared Mexican restaurants around town. The service was very slow, but the place was jammed full. I'd return.
