They cal it. A brunch and I guess that's true but it just feels like a fantastic Breakfast. Service is good, but food is great. They also have a patio and back room to have parties.

$3 BUCKS- Need I say more. One of the best egg and meat burritos around. We have had the egg and bacon and the machaca and egg. I ordered extra veggies on thehe machaca and it was beyond excellent. You can order over the phone and pick up in 10 minutes or dine in. It can not be beat anywhere!... More

I love Mexican food. I've lived all over the country and have never found a chimichanga that comes close to the one at Paco's. It's your typical CA mexican restaurant. It's nothing fancy but the service is decent and I've never had a bad meal. I'm not much of a seafood person, but my family all love the red snapper.... More

While the homemade tortilla chips were hot and fresh and the salsa was chunky and notably fresh, the flavors were merely average. The service was very good and friendly. I went for lunch with a local resident that wanted to showcase the quality of their local favorite and I was underwhelmed. I will say that it was tasty but nothing... More

Paco's is a nice Mexican food restaurant. I especially like the chips that they serve very fresh. Machaca con huevos is the bomb...

We were sent here by our hotel folks. The food is fresh and hot - we got Pepe's Special because we were interested in the CACTUS (yep) and it tastes a little like peppers. It was excellent. My favorite was the unusual pre-meal chips which were light and crunchy served with an outstanding homemade salsa. The service was efficient and... More

On our most recent visit, we actually said in unison that we thought a place like Baja Fresh was better food-wise (with admittedly no ambience) for a much smaller bill. The service was pretty good, but we're all about the food.

We called the night before and were told to come on in. When we arrived 5 minutes later, we were told that they could not serve us. We went for lunch the next day and I was not impressed. The service was terrible! We asked for water, without lemon due to allergies, and the server brought water with lemon. When... More

Mexican food for me was mainly Taco bell and BJ but this one gave me new taste of it. Nice choice of food, a bit heavy on pocket compared to other mexican outlets but once you taste it you would not mind it.
