The food is all authentic Mexican, with some minor adjustments to accommodate American palettes. My kids love the endless nacho chips and their variety of tacos. My wife adores their Flautas and will occasionally complain when she's gone too long without them. Me? I like it all, especially the margaritas.

We go every 2 months and most of the time we received good customer service in the restaurant area, the food is very good and the portions are good size, the atmosphere is nice. The bar area is good but too small to dance and the beers are a little expensive for that place. But overall is good place.

It started off very well - we were seated promptly, and courteously. Our server took our drink order, and returned in a good time with them; she followed up by taking our food order, and so far it looks great! Our appetizers come out timed perfectly, and they are fairly good - Guacamole with chips and Taquitos Dorados. That's where... More

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and good food makes Pequito's a must return...tucked away in a shopping center on 163rd St. You can only see it from Biscayne Blvd.

Have eaten at Paquitos many times and the food is good and consistent. The atmosphere for me is a little rough around the edges and sometimes I just want to get in and out and seems like when you get there it is a time consuming process. The food is delicious and they have a wonderful menu with delicious margaritas... More

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.
