This is a tiny place in what used to be skidrow in Lansing, now the artsy walkaround district on the North End. I lived up here when I was in grad school long ago, much nicer neighborhood now. Service was friendly and excellent. The food is authentic, very fresh, affordable but a bit plain, which is often the case in... More

My coworkers & I went here after a training that was recommended. I wouldn't recommend for large groups. It's a very popular place & it's small. There were only two guys that ran the dining area. They worked their butts off but slow service due to taking care of everyone. I thought the food was good. I had a la... More

I've been eating at Pablo's for more than five years now. They are always fantastic! The menu is fairly extensive for such a small place and I've never tried anything that I found disappointing. Try the fresh-squeezed lemonade and the mole(ay) enchiladas!

We went to Pablo restaurant with family I was expecting a different style restaurant. The food was good everyone had something different. My wife does not like spicy food. This was very mild Mexican perfect for someone who did not care for real spicy food. Spicier items were available. Staff was friendly.

I had a Torta with chicken and wished I had ordered something else. But, because of the ambience of this small place and the congeniality of the staff I would give it another try when in Lansing and go with food I am more familiar with. It was a very reasonably priced, authentic food neighborhood restaurant. When I say we... More

Pablo's has Posole... If you like soup and haven't tried the Posole, try it here... Go to the Mica Gallery and stop around the corner at Pablo's...whether for the soup or the other authentic Mexican fare...

This place is the cutest, most authentic Mexican resturant I've ever been to. The orchata is delectable, the staff is very friendly and works quickly. It is in a good location. We got sopes, chalupas, and soup, and everything was fantastic, fresh, and arrived quickly.

We stopped here after shopping at a couple nearby stores. We each ordered tacos -- mine were Mexican tacos with chopped onions and cilantro along with a side of guacamole. Mom ordered the American tacos with ground beef, cheese, and lettuce. Both were very tasty. The service was prompt and friendly. I did not give this place a five for... More

My husband & I recently ate lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. The food was excellent and the service very good. Definitely authentic Mexican food and a good value for the money. My husband said he could "eat there every day!" We will definitely make this our go to Mexican restaurant.
