“Since 1987...”

Moved to Orlando in 1987.....first turned onto this place by new friends and loved it....its become a love affair every time I am in the Orlando area. The overall ambiance is one of fun and somewhat tacky decor, but who cares, I am there for a great time and great food. Reconnected with some Midwestern school friends there a few times as a meeting place and they love it, too! The Guac doth Rock!

Ok nothing to much to say about it. Since I have eaten here several times with friends that like it. I come back with them from time to time. Average place to me. They think it is great. So i may be wrong.

A co-worker is a fan of Paco's, and highly recommended it. So I dragged the family out for Mexican - more like my wife dragged everyone else along, and I just gave directions to the restaurant. The other reviewers here are correct - based on the exterior, we'd normally never have stopped here. The building isn't anything special. Once you're inside, the staff (all 25-30 year veterans of Paco's, amazing for an industry with such high turnover) certainly treats you right, with an unforced Southern hospitality ('Honey' and 'Sweetheart' were heard repeatedly).

The food itself - was ok. My wife ordered enchiladas, I had the giant Chili Chimi - and both were alright, but dry. The Chili on mine was about 2 steps from baked on (although tasty), and my wife's meal has plenty of cheese but little sauce. The taste was fine, and we made a note to ask for more sauce on a future visit.

What it is is great value for what you're ordering. Compared to another Winter Park Mexican restaurant (*cough*Cocina214*cough*) the prices are half to 2/3s, and the quality of the food comparable.

If you want decent Mexican food, a sit down experience, friendly staff and good pricing, this is the place.

Our business group was greeted warmly even though we arrived 20 minutes until their closing (2:30 pm) time. The chips and salsa seemed endless. I chose a cheese enchilada and soft chicken taco, delicious! Others in our group had the burritos and meal platters, all with generous servings. Even though it looks like a dive, hole in the wall place, don't judge this book by it's cover. Give it a try!

You'd pass right by if you didn't know it was there - but don't. The food is great and the service fantastic. Throw in the value, and you've got a great evening out. Highly recommended.
