We'd been waiting for the new
restaurant to open and were excited to see the pretty building being used again. We'd never heard of Mi Pueblo, but we like Mexican and the menu online looked good, so we decided to give it a try. The parking lot was full, but were still seated immediately, which was a pleasant surprise. It was Sunday and the noise level was higher than I'm accustomed to, but besides that, it was welcoming and the interior was interesting to look at. The wait staff were literally running back & forth, but they were polite and did a fantastic job of keeping our glasses filled. Medina was our server, and though he was busy, he kept checking back and making us feel welcomed :-)
I had the Enchiladas Rancheras and they were excellent! Cheesy enchiladas, chicken with onions and peppers, and enchilada sauce on top served with black beans and rice = super yummy! I also got some sour crème and pico de gallo to really make mine pop!
My fella got the make your own combination: a burrito, a hard taco, and an enchilada - all beef. His also came with the obligatory rice and beans, and his was also yummy and satisfying... He shared some of my sour crème to make it even better :-)
The complimentary salsa was fiery hot. It wasn't my favorite, but it was tasty enough when paired with enough sweet tea to cool my tongue down!
The thing I like most about Mi Pueblo, and the reason that we'll go back is because their pico de gallo doesn't have any cabbage in it!! Pico de gallo shouldn't have cabbage in it and a bunch of local places in Charlotte (the multiple Aztecas & Don Pedros) have cut so many corners now that what they call pico de gallo is nothing more than a small plate of cabbage with onions and a couple of tomato chunks. Pico de gallo is my favorite thing and the main reason I eat in Mexican restaurants, so to find a place that hasn't ruined it really made my day! :-) Thanks Mi Pueblo, for opening a new place in Charlotte :-)
