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.

The food was garbage. That's all I have to say. I asked my waitress to take my meat back and cook it some more because even with the steak knife, I couldn't cut the meat with one slice. The food was so bland.. OMG. I was shocked. I had high expectations because Mexican food is usually flavorful. The restaurant is... More

The food was not as good as previous visits. Chef's night off? The service was spotty and a loud background hum (air conditioners?) was disturbing. The guacamole was disappointing, and the chile releno had seen better days. Last visit for us!

Well,if you're craving for mexican food and don't even consider Chipotle or Taco Bell,that's the place for you,the real thing with a homemade taste and a classy twist,not very expensive,i think it was something like 15-20 bucks a head the whole course with all the trimmings,if you are picky about mexican food,it's worth a trip,very nice !

The sauces are great, food is tasty, drinks are delicious, waitresses are pleasant and quick-dressed in authentic garb, mexican music, great atmosphere. My daughter even finished her taco (which she Never does). Wish it was close to my house. I'd eat there every week. $$$$pricey though

Paquitos has the best Mexican food in South Florida. I have been going there for 20 years and have eaten everything on the menu. From the chips and salsa, to the Mexican coffees, enchiladas, chili relenos, steak, fried ice cream and flan. Great place, interesting Mexican displays, especially for Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos.

Never in a million years would we have known about Paquito's, much less driven 25 miles to eat there, but my daughter-in-law found the place with a coupon deal and it turns out to be a gem - authentic Mexican cuisine, nice atmosphere, good and friendly service, wandering Mariachis. What more could you ask for?? Highly recommended!

After eating there, I feel I should have a colonics appointment and a 1 hour long shower. Nas-Tay. The filth of the kitchen and chip baskets ... How does this restaurant even pass health department inspections. Gag.
