I was not a fan of Pueblo (it just didn't live up to all the hype). But, the guacamole was one shining star in the otherwise dim meal. Learn more about why I feel this way by checking out my post about Pueblo Solis on my blog, ""For the Love of Food""

My experience at this restaurant has gotten me to join this site, just to write this review.
My husband and I went with another couple to enjoy my birthday at Pueblo Solis. We were expecting the service that we had previously gotten two years ago- quick, wonderful service and staff, and good food.
We were seated immediately on a Friday evening. Great, or so we thought. Unfortunately, we never got to taste the food, because after 20 minutes of waiting at our table, were never even offered drinks. I was extremely disappointed in this local restaurant. How can you ask someone to wait 20 minutes for drinks?!?!? We stood up and left the restaurant without looking back. We won't be back again.
Upon looking at the menu while waiting, beacuse we had a lot of time, I noticed too that their menu is set up strangely. Who charges $11.99 for fajitas that doesn't include anything but the tortilla and meat? Lettuce and tomato are 50cents extra, cheese and sour cream 95cents extra. That's weird.
After leaving the restaurant, we ended up going up Hampton a bit further to Amigo Joe's fastest service ever and excellent food. We'll be going there from now on.

Went in evening and was seated immediately. Waitress said she would be there soon - finally came back and took drink and dinner orders. Drinks arrive 10 minutes later only 2 of 3. Waited another 10 minutes for third. We waited an hour and fifteen minutes for dinner and was being told the kitchen was behind and only a few minutes more. We finally walked out. I can't tell you if the food was good or not but had plenty of chips and salsa. Never saw a manager, only waitress every once in a while just to come by to say sorry.

This was our second visit and WOW, WHAT A Difference. THe pinto bean soup we had this time had NO FLAVOR. the spices were lacking. Salt and pepper helped a bit... The beef fajitas were tough and also without seasoning. The margaritas were watery and had no lime flavor or tequila. My wife never received the second beer she ordered.
Our complaints were acccepted but no responsibility was accepted. . The manager explained that the taste differed depending on who was cooking. ??????
WE paid our bill and fed the fajita""s to the dogs

my absolute fav mexican resturant in STL! Love that it's in my neighborhood - we always try to walk there bc the bartender makes great/strong margharitas. family friendly. Service can be spotty but they've expanded the resturant with an outdoor patio and more room indoors so that's been helping. great to eat in or carry out (they're on my speed dial). you've never had
The food was fabulous! Right up there with the best Mexican in Texas! Service was great and the atmosphere was that of a very small Mexican cafe. Watch out because the portions are huge (don't over do it on the appetizers). AND the best margarita I have ever had. A fun evening all around!!!

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.

Having recently moved here from LA, I have longed for good Mexican food. I would say now that I have found it. The atmosphere is cozy, the staff very friendly and the food top notch. I am amazed as some of the posts have talked about rude service. I disagree...my experience was quite the contrary. We experienced very friendly and attentive waiters. The chips and salsa are amazing. They present 3 different salsas that are fresh and very tasty. I ordered the combo plate and everything was fresh, and served hot. The sopapilla desert was amazing with an incredible raspberry sauce on top of a cinammon sopapilla topped with fresh mango, blueberries and ice cream. The margaritas are great too. I highly suggest this place. I am looking forward to going again and sitting on the outdoor patio.
Food was good. The service was good and quick. The atmosphere wasn't the best. Overcrowded and the tables were too close. Also.. too dark... don't like a place that is too dark that I can't read the menu or barely see my food. Also, I felt like we were rushed out of there. Not a place to go for a date or to have a leisurely dining experience.
