Five out of Five Stars (June 3rd, 2013)
Paul: Originally, we chose Pablo’s because “Pablo” means “Paul” in Spanish. But also because when we are at the beach, we want to eat seafood – but we also like Mexican food. So, we thought, “Hmm…maybe they have some seafood, but in a Mexican way.”
For my appetizer, I had chips, salsa, and queso dip. The salsa didn't taste that spicy. It wasn't spicy at all, actually. The queso dip was warm, unlike some other places I've been where the queso dip was cold. The chips were surprisingly warm, which is a very nice feature. The chips were thick. Normally, chips are thin. So, whenever you dip them into queso, they break. Not the case here!
For my entree, I had the Seafood Chimichanga with beans, rice, guacamole, and sour cream. It had crab, lobster, scallops, shrimp, and cheese in a burrito case thing. The crab was very soft, which I like. And it was also warm. All the seafood was very fresh. I could tell because fresh seafood is tender and juicy.
The guy who served us came back on a regular basis to see us and ask us, “How’s the food?” and to give us more chips and salsa. He was very nice.
The place was very clean and has a really nice, big bar with a super-lot of drinks, including 1800 Tequila! There was a painting on the wall that was actually one of the pictures that is in our art room at school! It’s called “Flower Girl with Lilies”.
The bathrooms were surprisingly clean. In other Mexican restaurant bathrooms, they are normally like dirty and not cared about from the owners.
You have to go to Pablo’s if you are ever in Fernandina Beach!!
Sam: I had the burrito with beans and rice. It had chicken in it. I liked it a lot. In the bathroom there was a locker door, it was like a small rectangle and it had a window. And the stall had a window. It was cool.
