My sister and i had dinner at Paquitos recently, and it was great!! Food was delicious, service was on point, the ambiance was nice, the frozen margaritas even nicer! The home made salsa was delicious (and so was the quesadilla which was my order). I plan on going back there on my next trip to Miami.

I've been going to Paquito's for years and it never occurred to me that they don't know where the tequila bottle is. My friends and I drank three pitchers of Top Shelf Golden Margaritas.....with a separate pitcher of ice no less and yet for $138.00 there was nothing but heartburn.....a lot of it. I asked the waitress and she said... More

This place is located just at 163rd and Biscayne... The place is dated and smells mold and enclosed. Service is quite good and food is well, just ok. Nothing to brag about and maybe better options out there. The guacamole is maybe above average and that's it. The rest is average. They do have sodas in the can. Place could... More

My husband and I had been to this Mexican restaurant in a strip mall before and enjoy their food but last time we stopped in we had multiple issues. First, it took a little while for someone to come get our drink order and when they did we asked for a coke and an iced tea. she came back with... More

The service was attentive. We stopped for lunch and enjoyed our meal. The food was fresh and delicious. I always rate a Mexican restaurant on it's re-fried beans and rice sides. If they care about what they are doing the beans and rice are delicious and these were. I missed some queso fresco on them, but not everyone prefers it.... More

My family has been coming to Paquito's for well over 20 years. For a number of years, it was a New Year's Eve tradition for us. My mother is Mexican, and we were so starved for anything even resembling authentic Mexican food back in the 90s when we began going here that quality hardly mattered. Surprisingly, over the years the... More

Normally I would have been upset at paying more than $10 for tacos al carbon, but the steak was so lean and delicious that you will get no complaints from me. I went during lunch. The chips and salsa are complimentary and so good...it's hard to stop eating. Service was good. I live far but I will be back.
