“Real Deal”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Stopped in for dinner while in town visiting friends. Real authentic ambiance. Food & margy's were excellent. Bit of a wait to get in so had to hang out on sidewalk out front. Would go again.

“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

I've been going to Paco's for about twenty years, since I was in high school. The quality of the food has not changed, it's as good as it was the first time I went. Homemade, fresh tortillas made that melt in your mouth and great margaritas are bonuses.
The place is quaint and decorated with odds and ends. But the two big fish tanks always kept my kids well behaved during dinner. They go all out and decorate the whole restaurant for whatever holiday is coming up and it's very cute.
The service is nice, family run.
It really is the best Mexican food I've had in L.A.

“Look elsewhere. Pretty disappointing.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

With the other options available in LA there is really no reason to frequent this place. The food is bland and does not have a fresh flavor. It is piles of pre-cooked slop being thrown together. The only thing that is good is the mamacita who is making the fresh tortillas...

“Huge portions”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Giant sized portions of real Mexican food. Plenty of variety to choose from, respectable prices, nice atmosphere, friendly and fast service. Chips and salsa while you wait. We'll go there again.

“Best Mexican restaurant in Mar Vista CA”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The food is always fresh, and that includes the chips and salsa that they put on the table as soon as you're seated. The handmade tortillas are the best I've had, and the flour are my favorite. My family has been eating here once every few months or so for years, and you can count on them to be consistant with their food. Friendly waitstaff too.
