Mmmmm... if you have a hankering for some excellent Tex-Mex, get yourself to Paco's Tacos! My favorite is the cheese enchiladas, and they have excellent daily specials and an amazing selection of tequilas.

We had the best chimichungas here. Portions are god terrific that we split one meal and then had enough leftover for the next night! The portion sizes are humongous and everything is good. The salsa is top notch. The margaritas are great. The service was top-drawer. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Whenever we visit Charlotte we dine there the first night.... More

Visited on a relatively slow Thurs night - seated at a table midway between the kitchen door and the men's room, even when better tables were vacant. Waiter was heavily scripted, yet oddly inattentive. Order was not correct, food was mediocre, Don't let the convenient location across from the Marriott South Park entice you - there are many better choices... More

We are margarita snobs and we love the margaritas here - my favorite is the Rusty El Camino and my husband's is Paco's El Dorado. They make their own delicious tortillas and the food is consistently good. The atmosphere is really fun. I wish I could eat there every week but I don't live in Charlotte.

We went here in a fairly large party. The servers were very friendly and polite. The food was excellent and very well priced. I recommend getting various tacos and asking what the drink specials are that night.

Good food at reasonable pricing. The tacos are a must. We don't normally order desert but did this time because there was a birthday in our group. They completely missed the birthday just was a big disappointment and the Refried ice cream was sent back. Skip desert - not their best course.

This place was around the corner from our hotel and we had a taste for tacos. So, we popped in for lunch. Good choice. This is not the typical taco joint. The food and margaritas were quite good and service was excellent. We'll be back.

This is a better than average place to get reasonably good Mexican food. The service is usually very good although it can be slow if the restaurant is busy. Considering that the restaurant is usually busy tells me that many others also think this is a good place for Mexican food. The large beer and margarita list leads to lots... More

The tacos here are different; Try the brisket taco, and especially the chicken fried steak taco is out of this world. The atmosphere is festive and the place was filled on a Wednesday. It used to be Manzetti's, so location is convenient. Our waittress was friends with our son and she was very helpful and helped the fast service, even... More

Service was a little slow. The frozen margaritas and sangria were very good. Chips and salsa were medium spiced with good flavor. Had brisket taco that the meat was just slightly over done, but good smoky flavor. Chicken taco excellent. Might try again, the noise level was very high and hard to talk across the table.
