My daughter, who was here with her husband to attend a wedding event, recommended this little gem of a restaurant to me and I'm so glad I obliged. In a city full of really good Chinese restaurants, this little Mexican place really stands out. The service was very friendly and the food was superb, both the quality and quantity. Usually,...

We had breakfast at this restaurant for the first time, and it was fantastic! There were so many breakfast items to choose from and the portions were big. The food was delicious and the service was very warm and welcoming.

We have visited the restaurant just based on recommendation and we were fully satisfied. Service was good, food tasty and portions more than enough. Atmosphere was also fine and we were seated upon arrival without reservation. If you are in Arcadia and fancy of Mexican food, this is the place to go.

We often go to Paco's for lunch and sometimes for dinner. We like the very friendly and good service. The portions are large and often we take some home. Drinks are well made with many choices of top shelf brands too. We have been a regular for many years and hope to be for many years to come. Two Patio's... More

The menu is extensive, and the selection mouth watering. They serve about ten different mixes of Margaritas, which are delivered lightening fast. A very nice experience with good food.

We've never come for a meal but we come here from time to time for happy hour. They offer HH food specials that are nicely priced but there is a limited selection. There is also a limited draft beer selection so your favorite will probably come in a bottle. The HH bar seating in the bar area is small and... More

We go here often, the service is always great, the best table is by the fireplace, especially on cold winter days! They serve a great breakfast and I love their machaca! My wife loves their Huevos Rancheros and the chips are thin, fresh, hot and they always have ample delicious salsa to dip them into! We've been here for dinner... More

This quaint restaurant has your typical Mexican decor, a little dark but nevertheless pleasant. Came here for breakfast and glad that I did! I tried the Huevos Rancheros with corn tortillas, was very good. That and the endless good black coffee made for the perfect breakfast. The staff are attentive and polite, the crowd was not heavy but busy nonetheless.... More
