We arrived early for dinner and only a few other tables were taken, so our food came out pretty quickly. The flavors of the ground beef burrito were good, but unfortunately my dish was only lukewarm. My husband's was warmer, but not hot. After hiking all day and being starving, we ate our food as it was served. The restaurant... More

El Pacifico has adequate Mexican food and below average service. That said, it stands a little above the other restaurants in Grand Lake. I have been visiting Grand Lake for 35 years and go to El Pacifico if we need to go out. The bar is good, great place to take a break and go for a drink.

Typical Tex/Mex food that's good and service has always been excellent. Frozen margaritas are a treat. We would recommend it.

Awful Awful Service. We stood for almost five minutes before being seated. The waitress dropped our menus off, returned about five minutes later for drink orders, and fifteen minutes later, still no drinks. We saw her walking around, chatting with people, and then we hear someone tell her she can go on break. She brought our drinks over, and said... More

Fairly pricey mexican food, but good margaritas and food. Had the chipolte taquitos and a chicken burrito with green chile.

I went to El Pacifico 2 times this summer and i was well impressed by the food they serve. The atmosphere is nice, i like the spanish music they play while spending the time there. The decoration is country, with spanish influences and i got the chance to eat a lot with not too much money! It'a a good restaurant... More

Overpriced mexican food. My boyfriend later got sick from the camarones a la diablo. My taquitos were ok. Small basket of chips and only the first one is complimentary. Staff was efficient but not very friendly.

By far the worst mexican food I have ever tried. Burned 2 times! My family and I visit Grand Lake often. Last year, I tried el pacifico and the food was awful. Not fresh, clearly canned or pre-made and frozen. My order was incorrect and they made the effort to remedy it, after a couple of tries, I gave up... More

Waitress was bored, asleep. Some of the dishes were cold. And most were too salty. Several drink orders were never delivered. We received 2 tiny bowls (good for individual size) of chips for a party of 5. When we asked for more chips, she finally brought 1 more tiny bowl.

We loved the chips and salsa. My poblano chili rellano was excellent. I normally don't eat very much of the beans and rice, but the rice was moist and I'm not sure what made the beans special, but they were excellent. My husband raved about his beef burrito. We shared his leftovers the next day, and I had to agree.
