Pablo's Restaurante & Cantina and enjoy an outstanding Spinach and Mushroom Quesadilla with a Texas Margarita in a lovely and friendly atmosphere. The usual taco chips and a spicy, as in hot!, salsa are served. I added the salsa on my quesadilla (see above), with its chopped onion and fresh cilantro. I actually appreciated the smaller servings of guacamole and sour cream on my fresh lettuce salad so as not to tempt me to overeat. More is always available as a side. Entrees run $10 to $15. My entree, specialty margarita, and tip totaled $19.
In Birmingham's Colonnade, Pablo's has ample indoor and outdoor dining. The outdoor dining of neighboring Baha Burger and Takizi's Mediterranean Cafe mingle and lend to the outdoor atmosphere. Inside, the dark wood and design gives a feeling of elegance, even though televisions are provided for sports enthusiasts. Kudos for keeping the sound low! The wait staff are friendly, helpful and cute (think Benjamin Bratt).
There is no menu available online currently but both Spanish and Mexican entrees are offered. This was my third visit. I have not been disappointed. Pablo's has three locations currently in Birmingham.
