Before the dinner, stop by the bar. Great ambiance, cool looking Latin ladies, good Margaritas and acceptable wines. Nice bar menu, reasonable prices, good happy hour spot. Be aware, 18% gratuity is included in every check and they charge for water.

It's was a relax environment in which they had Mariachi come around. The servers are very friendly and willing to help. They gave a big portion and the food was authentic. I had the enchilada suiza and it was delicious. I also had the tres leche desert. There's a separate room which it's a bar and they have karaoke. It's... More

Tasty Mexican food, a menu you would expect to see with some authentic Mexican items instead of all Tex-Mex. Friendly service, addictive chips and salsa.

My friend found this restaurant and we decided to try it. The place has a very odd ambiance but this is because they also have have live... More

I never knew this place has been here the past 20 years of been coming to Miami. Great location right on Biscayne by 163rd in Aventura/N Miami Beach area. Fresh chips & homemade salsa. Really good house sangria by the glass (not a fake sangria that uses fruit juices & sprite). Atmosphere is fun with tables for a family, large... More

Paquito's is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the local area. We went there with some friends of ours the other night and it was excellent as usual. The thing I like about Paquitos is they have a huge menu but you can order individual items at really good prices so you're not paying for the rice and beans and side... More
