Horrible food--I live in the neighborhood and see what really goes on there during the day. Will never eat there. They provide NO parking. Patrons park in the residential spots which are supposed to be for homeowners. They leave drunk and hit cars as they try to get out of their parallel parking spot. Have seen them urninate on other cars, trample on homeowners flowers, throw their trash onto our street -- the list goes on and 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.

Pros: Good drinks

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

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.

We went there having heard great reviews and despised this place. Slow service. Terrible food. It was definately not Mexican. It was not Tex Mex. It was someone's convoluted idea of Mexican. The WORST Mexican place in Saint Louis.

Very overpriced! Also we waited over 45 minutes to get our food and it was horrible! The service was ok at best. The food was just plain, small portions, and just not good. I love mexican food, but this place was bad! We came from Chesterfield to eat there because it was so recommended...should have went to Taco Bell!

We were very impressed the first couple of times we came to Pueblo Solis. Then, not so much. We just went today, and it was a nightmare. Our waiter, Kevin, was inexplicably rude. Even though there were hardly any other tables, we felt very rushed. He also seemed determined to convince us to order much more food than we wanted, and wouldn't leave us alone long enough to enjoy our meal. Speaking of the meal, the food quality has deteriorated. The formerly delicious sopes were rock hard, the longhorn cheese was rubbery, the rice was mush. Such a shame! We used to really love this place. I hope they get it back together; until then, we will go elsewhere.

I am a native Texan and a Mexican-American, so I have experienced great Mexican food. I had heard a lot of good things about this place, so my wife and I decided to try it out. The first thing I noticed was the dimmed lighting. Not your typical atmosphere. Mexican food can make one a bit drowsy, so the lack of lighting did not help the situation. Once we got seated, the waitor was quite rude. He was trying to rush us though everything and was critical to the changes that I made which were not much. For example, I am not a big fan of Chihuahua cheese, so I told him that I did not like it. He came back with, "I would not recommend that choice." He isn't the one eating the food. Once we got the food, I actually thought it was pretty good. I did not, however, care for the rice. It was extremely overcooked, mushy, and very bland. The last thing I could not understand, it how expensive the food was compared to typical Mexican food. The traditional type dishes were about $9-10 when they should be priced about $6-7. One item on the menu in particular was way over priced. I could not believe that someone would have enough courage to charge over $9 for a bowl of Menudo. It is probably made with the cheapest ingrediants of anything on the menu and should have been appropriately priced around $5. I will have to think long and hard before I would make a return visit.

It took my friends and I (seven of us) upwards of 45 minutes to be seated. We were initially told that it would be only 20 minutes for a table, and after 20 minutes, we were told (many times) that it would only be a "few more minutes." So we waited...crammed into the small hallway/entryway while those around us jockeyed for position.
Finally we're seated. The waiter takes 15 min. to even come to us for our drink orders, and then another 15 for the drinks to finally show up. He brings us chips and offers to bring us guacamole, not telling us that the guacamole cost 8 dollars a bowl! We were also--get this!--charged EXTRA for the salt on our margarita glasses (which he also "forgot" to mention...this ended up adding an extra 5 dollars to the bill). 30-40 minutes after being seated, we're finally able to order our food, which was decent (but decidedly average...I say this having lived in Mexico). Overall, the food at Pueblo Solis is fine (as far as American-ized Mexican food goes), but certainly not worth a prolonged wait. The guacamole ("The Best in the Midwest" they tell you) can be easily replicated at home.
So once the meal is finally over, we (after waiting...for a while longer) received our bill. We split it between the seven of us and--somewhere along the line--bungled the tip (albeit not that badly). As we were about to leave, the waiter CHARGES up to us, and asks, "So you're going to leave THIS on THIS bill?" No cordiality whatsoever. No mention of the fact that he was completely M-I-A during our meal. Even though we had left him about a 10% tip (we had meant to leave 15% and not a penny more, but something somewhere got mixed up...the $5 salt, perhaps? The $8 guacamole? Who knows...). So we calmly explained to him that he had not served us well, and that--at the very least--he could offered his concern politely. We ended up leaving the 15% tip that he claimed to "deserve."
Not sure I've ever had such a bad restaurant experience. Go to Arcelia's.

Just happened to come upon this place and have loved it ever since. The service is amazing from small talk to suggestions and presentation to completion. The Margaritas are a must try. Chips and selection of salsas were delicious. The main meal is prepared in a unique style different from most other mexican restaurant which is a pleasant surprise. The atmosphere is quaint. We tried the mango cheesecake. It looked wonderful but didn't go with mexican. Maybe just another margarita next time. Our waiter was wonderful and spent quality time with us in helping us make our choices and making sure there our dinner experience was wonderful.. I think his name was Kevin.

I am shocked by some of the other posters comments. If you want real Mexican food prepared fresy daily this is the place. If you like Casa and Chevys stay away, you will not be ready for the spicyness and real taste this place provides. Usually busy and does have a small dining room, but that adds to the atmosphere. The food is unbelivable, the salsa change degrees of spicyness each time, which speaks to the freshness of the food. If you are looking for an experience, not a dash and dine, this is the place. I go at least once a month, when I get that craving.

One of the few places in town that you can get REAL mexican food. This place is a gem, so much so that they had to add on to accomodate the lines of people. The salsas can be really hot but worth the burn. The food is so fresh...I think about going their constantly!

PROS: Unique St. Louis Mexican food
CONS: get there early on the weekends

Pueblo Solis has become one of the more popular destinations for Mexican food lovers in St. Louis. I like the fact that the menu is not the "cookie cutter" variety - with recipes attributed to the owner's mom (so he says). The first few times I found their beans and rice to be truly extraordinary, then the las couple of visits, they had changed to just normal. The owner says they vary depending on who cooks them!?! Tacos were also disappointing, but some of the menu specialties were excellent. Guacamole has always been outstanding. Watch out for the hot sauce - no mild option. Count on a big crowd and not so big waiting area. One time I swore they forgot us, and I've heard horror stories from others.

We moved here in 2004 from San Antonio, Texas and this is the BEST Mexican food we have ever eaten. Yes, there can be a wait so, if you are in a hurry pick an odd time - say 5pm mid week - or just enjoy the atmosphere and wait. The food is spicy (great-because who eats Mexican food for blah) and the staff is friendly. So, sit back, relax and be prepared to have a great authentic Mexican meal.

The food was good, my Margarita was very good, chips & salsa ware also very good. That is very important because the food took an hour. The good news is that I had already heard that, so I was prepared & enjoyed my evening.

We didn't mind having to drive awhile to find a parking spot. We didn't mind that when we put our name on the list we were told it was a 30 minute wait. We hung out in the very small bar area and ordered a drink. After seeing people that came in after us get seated and realizing we've been waiting for over 30 minutes we asked a waitress how much longer. She was going to go check - after seeing her seat more new comers - we asked her again. At that point she had an attitude with us and came back with menus and said "did you want a seat" - we told her no and that we would like to speak to the manager - after about another 30 minutes he comes out. We'll never go back. It's very small, horrible service, over rated, and there are tons of other good places to go.

My wife and I really wanted to like Pueblo Solis. The food is very good, the people are friendly and the restaurant has a good vibe. But the wait is excruciating. From waiting to sit down (we were told 3 times it would be another 15-20 minutes), to waiting to be served (we waited 20 minutes for a waiter to approach our table and another half hour for our food), to waiting to pay your check (I've never had such a hard time giving money away). From start to finish it was 3 1/2 hours. The restaurant is simply not worth the wait. We won't go back until they expand, or hire more staff.

My girlfriend and I visited earlier on a Wednesday evening so we did not experience a wait. We chose to sit outside - I felt there was ample room. I did not feel cramped as some of the other reviews stated. I can't comment on the space inside. Our server was very knowledgeable. The salsas were all very spicy which i don't mind, but I can see how it would be a complaint for others. The margaritas were large and tasty. The guacamole was very good, and my spinach salad with white cheese, bacon, and balsamic was also tasty. Our entrees were fresh and presented well, i had a special of swordfish which was prepared just right. Even when we left we didn't see a line waiting. Maybe it was a slower night. Overall We were very satisfied with the experience and we will be back.

When you go to Pueblo Solis do NOT expect to be seated immediately (unless you go Mon-Thur at 5pm...reservations do not help) and expect to be close to someone. This is a small sacrifice for the best Mexican food in St. Louis! The presentation of the food is thoughtful, which you do not see for this price anywhere. The guacamole dip is THE best (and if you get it when it was just made...watch out!). The margaritas...are pricey but heavy-handed. The mango cheesecake IS A MUST HAVE!!

Since I live down the street, I have visited Pueblo Solis several times since 2002. Each time I have been greeted with a smiling face and jovial attitudes. I love the atmosphere. It's cozy and inviting! From the margaritas through the three types of salsa to the specials and choice items on the menu, we have never had a bad experience here. Go during the week if you don't like spending time by the bar waiting for a table...

after spending over 45 minutes waiting in a hot sweaty line; we were told it would only be a few minutes more at least 4 times. we waited in line for over an hour. we were finally seated in a very croweded dining area that was not much larger than the livable side of my basement. the only thing "romantic" about the entire restaurant was the candle in the center of a very small table. we were crammed in the dining room with other diners shoulder to shoulder at other tables surrounding us. the food was OK at best. there was nothing on the menu noteworthy of a recommendation that someone with no taste buds gave us. i dont recommend this place for a romantic dinner or any dinner unless you are desperate and dont have a cell phone to let other people know to meet you somewhere else.

after spending over 45 minutes waiting in a hot sweaty line; we were told it would only be a few minutes more at least 4 times. we waited in line for over an hour. we were finally seated in a very croweded dining area that was not much larger than the livable side of my basement. the only thing "romantic" about the entire restaurant was the candle in the center of a very small table. we were crammed in the dining room with other diners shoulder to shoulder at other tables surrounding us. the food was OK at best. there was nothing on the menu noteworthy of a recommendation that someone with no taste buds gave us. i dont recommend this place for a romantic dinner or any dinner unless you are desperate and dont have a cell phone to let other people know to meet you somewhere else.

This is Mexican food is all about. Fresh, seasonal vegetables and presentation showed such care and pride. The restaurant might be tight in space, and there's always a wait, but having eatened in many mexican restaurant, and dined with Mexican friends, this is by far the most pleasing to the palate.

Pros: fresh food, authentic, well prepared

Cons: tight space

We live in the neighborhood and eat here @least 1x/month. I noted the negative comments about service/food. But honestly, we've never had bad service...it is small, and we have had to wait for a table on several occasions. But, we've always been impressed w/how attentive the staff was @filling drinks, etc. LOVE the food...from the specials (the cured pork chop w/sweet potatoes was incredible), shrimp diablo, soft tacos (my husband craves these), enchiladas, tamales, and guacamole. We'll con't to be back on a regular basis.

My wie & I had a very nice meal here. I had the mixed tamales and she had the Voddoo Shrimp & pasta. Both were delicious, when they say spicy they mean it!

We went early on a Friday evening, so we did not have a wait...the place is small and cramped inside, so I would recommend getting there early. The food was very good....some of the best Mexican I've had in St. Louis. Their margaritas were very good (and I typically don't like margaritas b/c of the tequila), and their guacamole was excellent (another food item I'm not usually fond of). Their homemade salsa was too hot for me. Next time I go, I will probably ask for the pico de gallo (a lot milder) to go with my chips instead of the salsa.

I live within walking distance so I was pleased when they opened. Unfortunately I tried them twice and was disappointed both times. The tables are so jammed together you can't move in your chair once you are seated. The food was mediocre at best. Warmed over Old El Paso. My wife had a Fajita the second time that was absolutely disgusting. More like squid than steak in texture. Service was MIA. Sorry, I know this place is popular, There are always people waiting to get in but I can't figure out why. Take the time and drive to Fairmont City for real Mexican.
