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.

Visited this place in late September with a couple of my friends. Nice mexican style decoration inside. There is also a bar area with a small dancing zone. From Friday thru Sunday in the evening there are disco in it. The meal is good, but nothing special - ordinary tacos, burritos and so on. Overall, I think this place is... More

Such a difficult choice. Both are excellent, but I've been hooked on the Enchiladas de Pollo con Salsa Verde for a while. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, plenty of Mexicana to look at. My favorite Mexican Restaurant.
