Really enjoyed our visit. I concur with other reviews that the chips are greasy and the meal pacing is a little rushed. It was not loud when we were there for early dinner. The cocktails were unique and a good quantity. This is a Mexican...More

Amazing steak tacos. A bit pricey but perfect for a date because the food will not disappoint. You get a new experience eating here. The tacos I had I expected to be just expensive versions of tacos I've had before. I was wrong. They had...More

I saw this recommended in Trip Advisor and I agree it's a very nice place. I was there for Tuesday Taco Night and their dinner of 4 shrimp tacos was only $7 and was great. I'll be sure to go again when in the area....More

If I sound rushed and out of breath, please excuse me--I just finished being hurried through a meal at Puebla. We just started enjoying the complimentary refried beans and chips when our thre salsas order arrived, along with the guacamole order. Less than five minutes...More

We went there tonight and sadly had poor service. The food is good but not worth the wait since you can go to other places in Geneva that are basically the same. First no hostess, you walk in and there is a place for you...More
