Lively, fun and affordable

Went here on a week night with friends. Friendly, good vibe and pretty good Mexican food. Service was good and margaritas tasty. Good local place and will return.

I am not sure why this place is always packed and people rave about it. The food is fine, but certainly not worth a special trip for. The food was greasy so it was not the healthiest. I would go there again if I was in the area but it is certainly not worth a special trip.

The food is tasty, authentic, and reasonably priced. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nice, and there's also a bar area. The homemade flour tortillas are the best and you can watch them being made.

We had a very enjoyable meal at Paco's Tacos. There were lots of local residents enjoying Paco's. Service was great. Don't go for the decor. A little old, but fun. Food was very good - basic Mexican fare done nicely. I had a combination plate with a Tamale - it was great! The prices were reasonable. All in all a... More

We were in town visiting and Paco's was recommended. It was a Thursday night and the place was packed. The food was excellent. Some of us are gluten free and options were abundant. The fresh made corn tortillas served with chips while we waited for our entrée were fabulous. At the table we had enchiladas, burritos, quesadillas, and nachos and... More

Small and cozy with friendly service. The food is fresh and prepared on site... you can watch the tortillas and tacos being made in the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food arrived quickly. Excellent food and good value.

Great place and great, authentic food! A bit trendy due to its location, peak hours will find you looking for parking and waiting for a table. If you have some extra time to plan, you can get effectively the same food at the Westchester location which has a much larger dining room and a bar too.

If you want a real LA experience with excellent food and drink--and superb service this is your place. The décor is totally entertaining and it is always lively here. There are women making the tortillas by hand and they are served warm--they melt in your mouth. The drinks are always generous and delicious. The food is typical of Mexican-LA restaurants,... More

We have been here a few times while on an LA stopover. Its so yummy and inviting and good for kiddos and exactly what you want. Margaritas are good and chips and salsa are exactly how you want them... constantly being refilled! Will go again next time I am in LA!
