We do not frequent Paco's as much as we used to.. It is most definitely a neighborhood favorite; it is usually packed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner during most of the week... Great value, huge portions for the price; however, the food is hit and miss.. Most times, food is good; tonight my husband had the carne asada platter and... More

Paco's is our go to place for Mexican food. The fajitas, the tacos, the enchiladas, the taquitos, etc., - all are very good. They make great margaritas with your choice of tequila. Most of the servers have worked there for a long time and are very good at what they do.

We went here because we heard that they had Sunday Brunch with unlimited champagne for $10.95. They do, but it's not a buffet. I ordered machaca con huevos and my daughter ordered the omelet/enchilada combination. The chips and salsa were great, but that's where it ended. It took forever to get the unlimited champagne. The food came on these gigantic... More

Not good, not bad. We were hungry - service was excellent but food across the board was bland. Flan was chewy rather than rich. Chips were hard - It's a shame for us really we live so close by we'd be regulars it it were at least a 4-star.

At least as far as I am concerned. I really love the machaca con juevos best of all. Nice Sunday brunch is offered there too.

I have had brunch, lunch and dinner here and the service and the staff are wonderful. My family and I have ordered food to go, they forgot a burrito the manager came over and made it right. When we came back two weeks later, he stopped by the table and said hi and made sure everything was right. Don't miss... More

WOW!!! My husband and I met another couple at Paco's Mexican Restaurant for dinner and were in for a big surprise. This is not your typical Mexican restaurant--there is something for everyone at this extraordinary restaurant. After being seated we were immediately served delicious freshly made chips with salsa and guacamole and house margaritas made from 100% Agave tequila. Yum!... More
