This is my friend Amy. She treated me to Don Pablo’s a few nights ago and I told her I was going to blog about it. I forgot my camera so she took pictures with her phone. She is also a stylist and cuts my hair for me. It’s why I look so fabulously sexy and young for such an old, gay man. (Humor me, please!)
One thing I’d like to say about Don Pablo’s: It’s a restaurant chain. To steal a line from Sienfeld, “Not that there’s anything wrong with that.” But after 8 years of waitering part-time at Chi Chi’s, I have become very familiar with chain Mexican food. As Don Pablo’s goes, it’s pretty standard Americanized Mexican chain restaurant food, but the food is tasty and you get a whole lotta of it for just a little cashola. And the drinks are BANGING!
We started out with the most expensive appetizer on the menu which included a selection of goodies including beef nachos, carnitas, quesidillas, guacamole, and white queso sauce. Very filling but very similar in tastes.
I ordered the taco, tamale, and chile relleno platter. The last two are my absolute favorites and Don Pablo’s does a nice job with them. And at under $9.00, how could I resist?
Amy’s meal consisted of a taco, carnitas, and a variety of enchiladas. Again a boatload of food for about $10.00.
