We have been to Paquitos many times. It is decorated in all kinds of Mexican flags and colored table cloths. The food is good serviceable Mexican food. They have musicians who walk around the restaurant singing and playing instruments. Depending on your mood this could be good or bad. Either way, don't expect a quiet meal. They have many different... More

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

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
