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

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.

I have been going to Paquitos for over 20 years and it has never failed me. I have been to many mexican restaurants in many states and have never found salsa that equaled Paquitos. I have never had a bad dish either. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The decor is colorful. It continues to be our favorite restaurant... More

I am highly allergic to avocado. I always ask for no guacamole due to my allergy...I have tried this place a few times and It always comes out wrong. Last time they just put the same food on a different plate and there was guacamole stuck to the side of my food. I have other options for Mexican and I... More

Too bad they have decreased in quality... This place used to be better. I sure hope the owners realize this before it's too late. As for food, it is general.... Also it could use a make up as well as a major deep cleaning.
