The restaurant is festive Mexican. Our waitress was attentive. The margaritas were great. The disappointment was the food. Our meals, a huge burrito and a crab enchilada, were both subpar and overpriced. Too bad, Paco's is not a keeper for us.

Breakfast was really good and inexpensive. The service was good as well. Happy Hour is fun to meet new people as it is often busy but you may not find a place to sit. They do have an outdoor patio.

Pacos has been a regular eating place for my wife and me. We started going there when our kids were young so it is truly a family restaurant. Their fajitas and dinner plates are excellent. Their margaritas pack a punch so no more than two if you're going to drive and maybe one if you're a little person! A not... More

First time at this restaurant for a birthday meal. Service was very good. Salsa and chips were plentiful and the margaritas were refreshing. We chose this restaurant because it had vegan options for a couple of our family members. They were pleased with their vegan burritos. I had a combination meal and it was tasty and generous in portion. Lots... More

We have been to this restaurant several times, as it is a favorite of my family who lives in California. The food is good, and the service is very nice as well. They have a children's menu, and treat the kids with consideration. The restaurant is also open for breakfast at 7:30, and, judging by the cars, they seem to... More

I love to go to Paco's for the happy hour. They always have margarita specials. There is free appetizers in the bar area that change depending on the day of the week you are there. They also have a happy hour menu that has great food with reasonable prices. The staff at Paco's is always attentive...your chips and salsas are... More

We were craving Mexican food after a long day in the parks. We went on trip advisor and yelp and decided on Paco's. The food was excellent and the service was good. We would go back if ever in the area again.

Thank David H
