“Not memorable”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

After reading other reviews, our mediocre experience may have been a staffing issue. Four adults and two children were crammed into a small booth. The first words from our waiter's lips were that we had just missed Happy Hour and he then elaborated on what we had missed. The adults wanted Margaritas so I ordered a pitcher. He informed us they don't have pitchers. We are from California. Are pitchers of Margaritas just a West Coast offering? We ordered individual drinks and the salt, no-salt options were forgotten. When the food arrived, it was obvious that our table was too small. The waiter was nice enough, but probably new with limited training. Our entries included fajitas, enchiladas, and a combination plate. None of it was memorable. As we were finishing up, a waitress brought a large tray and attempted to give us someone else's order. The location is great, the decor is pleasant. This restaurant has potential.

“We love Don Pablos in Manassas, VA!”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

We love to go to Don Pablos and have loved it for years. We like to go because the food is really good and done right. We have been going to the Manassas location for years and years. After we moved to Woodbridge we tried that location but it wasn't as good as Manassas and it closed in any event. But we look forward to going to DP's and whenever we can fit it into our schedule we go. I really love the sizzlin fajita salad and hubby loves the El Matador. The pabloritas are worth the trip alone!! I am telling you we save our pennies to go and we always enjoy it very much. Just thinking about it makes me want to jump in the car and head north!!! Also check out the specials they have one for each weeknight and they are very money saving!

“Slow... Slow”

We waited 5 minutes to be seated. Server was good, food was ok. Just very understaffed. Would not visit this restaurant again.

“A Poor Dinner - And Service!”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Recently, tried Don Pablos for dinner. Ordered standard items from the menu. First it took too long to have a waiter come to the table. During the ordering process he couldn't get the order right in his own mind. Next, the food took abnormally long to get to the table, and this was after the waiter coming by twice saying "just a little longer." The the food came luke-warm. Nothing tasted good enough to earn an "average" rating. The waiter didn't come by to refill drinks. This equates to a poor dinner - and service. We do not recommend this restaurant. And, we never saw a manager to speak with during the entire time we were in the restaurant.
