I celebrated my 50th birthday at El Pueblo in the Pacific Highlands Ranch location and it was great! The managers Lynn and Nony were fantastic! I coordinated the food and space reservation with Nony and Lynn helped make everything happen. The staff were all fabulous with making sure we had everything we needed and constantly coming to clear away trash etc. the patio space is beautiful with the lights and fire tables. It was perfect! I highly recommend for any event or if you’re just craving some yummy tacos!

TRY THE PERFECT DESERT: BUNUELOS

Exciting news for El Pueblo Mexican Food enthusiasts! The mouthwatering addition of Bunuelos to the menu at all El Pueblo locations is a perfect compliment to any our many Mexican dishes. We deep fry a tortilla and sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar. The result? A delightful fusion of crispiness and sweetness. A beloved Mexican dessert, Bunuelos bring a taste of tradition and nostalgia to every bite, making them a must-try for those seeking an authentic and satisfying Mexican food experience at any El Pueblo Mexican Food location.
