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.

I was staying nearby for three weeks and a local couple recommended this place for a good Mexican meal. I initially went for dinner, and the food was good, the service was very good, and the place was nicely decorated, comfortable and filled with locals who apparently walk there from the nearby neighborhood. The parking lot is small, and the... More

It had been years since we went to Paco's but that was my husbands choice Sunday night. I was surprised at how many people were in the restaurant as the parking lot is so small, not sure where they came from. When we ordered our drinks I was not happy as I always ask for either lite ice or 6... More

This is one of those local spots that you can feel comfortable bringing your family, a date, or a large party to. Prices are maybe a bit on the higher side for typical Mexican restaurants, but then besides the usual combo plates (which are around the $12 range, they have some upscale items like a new grilled chicken plate (chicken...

While on vacation, went to this restaurant twice during the course of a week as it was so good. Not one bad thing to say about it. We only ordered the burrito's but found all of them to be awesome. Loved the food, atmosphere and service. Had to park across the street in the grocery store parking lot but probably... More

we have been going to Paco's for years and our favorites have changed as time goes by. My favorites are the chicken enchiladas and anything else with chicken.

The food here is very good. Our group had tacos, menudo, and a Mexican Pizza...and all were very tasty. My favorite were the pre-dinner chips...they were hot with just the right amount of fat on them to make them absolutely great! The restaurant itself is designed in the typical Mexican Restaurant look that a large chain would do. However, it... More

First time here and we had a great experience. The food was authentic, service was great. It was exactly what we were hoping to find. Out of 5 of us, everyone was happy with their food for once!
