We had a big group but got a back room that was perfect. The margaritas were really good. After two I thought it best to stop so I could successfully drive. The food is typical SoCal Mexican faire. I bet the tamales are made, frozen...More

Paco's offers a variety of Mexican food, and the potions are big! I didn't finish half of my steak fajitas and packed the rest of the fajitas, rice and beans. The wait staff are super friendly and well organized with reservations.

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.
