We were first to arrive after the restaurant opened on a Sunday afternoon, but by the time we left, the place was packed. No wonder, since the food is great and very reasonably priced. Growing up in South Texas, we have a pretty high standard for Mexican food, and Paqito's did not disappoint! Particularly enjoyed the limonada, and probably refilled... More

Authentic Mexican Cuisine. Always my go to spot if I am looking for a margarita fix! Great tacos, burritos, and guacamole. Perfect for a low budget.

Paquito's is a casual, friendly place, with tasty food and good margaritas. As a local it is always a good choice for Mexican food with a reasonable price, easy parking.

This restaurant is very good. Very, very good. My children absolutely love the chicken tenders. They are apparently awesome. They are always begging us to bring them here to get them more chicken tenders. The Mexican food is also really good.

This is about the fourth time that I have been to this place never had to wait. The staff is friendly and helpful. Love the Nachos and freshly made salsa. I had the Chimichanga it was ok, love the Horchata. Our server Tony was very attentive, friendly and informative. Will go again and try something else.

We think this is the best Mexican food around. We remember when it was a little tiny place right on Biscayne Blvd. their salsa is mouth watering delicious. They have a busy bar that rocks. Plenty of seating for eating. Love. Love. Love the food. Frozen Margaritas aren't bad either.

We decided to look for a Mexican restaurant near us yesterday, and found great reviews on Paquito's. Rather daunting on the outside we were charmed by the interior decorations and staff. Everyone was happy with meals, I would have preferred my dinner spicier and next time I will ask for it. Sangria good, and we were delighted with the live... More
