This comes as no surprise....I don't think the eastside will ever emerge out of the pit it's in, even with the new business going in at Eastgate.

I got carryout from that Don Pablos quite often....just not enough of it apparently!

Well if Don Pablo's couldn't stay open, how the heck did his brother Dan expect to make a go of it???

No big surprize.

Bad location.

Compitition.

Lack of menu diversity.

The locally owned and truly ethinic Mex and TexMex shoppes have the chains beat, hands down.

Lack of Business was a symptom of your problems. The problem was your food wasn't good and it was overpriced at that.

It is too bad all of you people can't make a living pointing out spelling errors!

Pull the plank out of your own eye before pointing out the spec in mine.

All Don Pablo's restaurants suffer from a severe lack of cleanliness. If the dining area is filthy, it is frightening to imagine what the kitchen is like! I've avoided them for years. No wonder the parent company in in bankruptcy protection.

Would someone please get a big dozer and tear down all the empty businesses on East Washington Street? Then, start over!

You're telling me there was a Dan Pablos on the east side?

You say Dan Pablo's.... I say Don Pablo's. Where are the spell checkers?

Perhaps if they'd kept up on their payments to the don, this could have been avoided. capish?

"Would someone please get a big dozer and tear down all the empty businesses on East Washington Street? Then, start over! "

That would be fine with me. Empty fields would be better than crappy old vacated buildings.
Supposedly Washington Street from 465 to the mall is going to be redone this spring but I don't know how much that will help. Washington is an ugly mess.

I'm not suprised the Eastside Don Pablo's lacked business everytime our church tried to eat there we were given a hard time because they didn't want to service large parties so we stoped trying.

I was skeptical of Don Pablos from the beginning. Chi-Chi's failed several years ago, just a few hundred yards to the east of Don Pablos, and they still haven't found a tenant for that empty structure.

With the markup on Mexican cuisine, I just have to believe that the restaurant wasn't well run.

Its a real loss to the community. Two doors down the empty Chi Chi's building is such an eyesore. And the vacant fish restaurant at Franklin and Washington is beginning to fall down its in such bad repair. They should make them take down the buildings when they close to keep them from becoming such eyesores.
