El Pacifico has good Mexican food. The service is prompt and quick, which is abnormal for Grand Lake. They recently did some minor remodeling and it looks great. The restaurant is family friendly and convenient in downtown.

Love the food... Love the owners... Love the atmosphere... Highly recommend!
Been going there on a regular basis for a few years now and really love and appreciate the efforts the owners are putting into remodeling and updating the dining/dancing/music areas. Great job, Charlie and Maria!

This is the first time I have been to Grand Lake, and El Pacifico is the place to celebrate a special occasion! Not only is the food delicious and the margaritas EXCELLENT! But, the company and atmosphere is perfect for a fun, warm, and relaxing evening. My advice is to sit down and enjoy being in a mountain town. Take in the mountain town experience! Maria and Charlie (the owners) are incredibly warm and inviting, (not to mention they have fantastic dance moves)! On the weekends, Bob is the local entertainment and a complete hit! Overall a wonderful experience and I will definitely make it on my list to come back several times again!

The charm of El Pacifico is unmatched by any in Grand Lake. We don't understand some of these more negative reviews -- they obviously choose not to enjoy the charm! The food is fantastic, Bob (the weekend entertainment) provides endless amounts of entertainment in the form of comedic asides to wonderful songs.
Maria and Charlie run a wonderful and magical restaurant that is enjoyable to all ages. We highly recommend visiting this establishment. Even in the dead of winter, my significant other and I had a wonderful experience listening and participating in the music, and enjoying the company of the staff and other customers.
Do not listen to the negative reviews of those on here. They obviously chose not to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that comes with the delicious food. There is more to a restaurant than the portion size and sophistication of the palate. If you are looking for a fun and light-hearted dining experience as well as large quantities of delicious Mexican style food, look no further. The charm of this establishment is unequal to any other.

The service is adequate, but nothing notable. You'll get what you ordered, but not particularly quickly nor by anyone noticeably happy to be at work. The margaritas are not very good, so skip those. The food is of average quality and portion size. They are the only mexican food place in Grand Lake and will do in a pinch, but I would suggest you'd be better off taking the 15-mile drive down to Granby if you're really craving good Mexican food. They have a couple of restaurants down there that are better.
