"Just had the most amazing dinner. My new favorite place. The staff goes above and beyond to make you feel welcomed. They are kind, courteous, and attentive. The food was wonderful. I had the special fajitas they were delicious. We sat outside and the weather could not be more perfect. There are waterfalls and gorgeous plants and flowers everywhere. Florencia is part owner and she has so much great energy. She definitely helped make this an enjoyable dinner."

our CLIENTS SPEAK

WHO WE ARE

Los Pueblos was established in 2003, originally named "Florencia's" after the beloved founder, Florencia Smith. She is widely known in the lakes region as the heart and soul behind our authentic Mexican cuisine. Born in Oaxaca, Mexico and raised in Acapulco, she moved to the Okoboji area in 1982 to start a family with her husband, and Okoboji native. She brought with her delicious family recipes from the heart of Mexico as well as a passion for people and the work ethic of her home village.


Locals and tourists alike quicky appreciated her high standards of quality service and delicious cuisine. As a family endevour, Los Pueblos is proud of the reputation we've cultivated over the 18 years we've served the Iowa Great Lakes area. In 2021, Florencia's granddaughter and daughter had the honor and joy of continuing the family business by purchasing the restaurant. 


We are proud to continue her vision and legacy with a commitment to the highest standards of quality ingredients, cleanliness and the friendly family service that embodies the values of Florencia
