We love Paco's! And the 4 course dinner menu can't be beat! Plus you can customize it how you like (some options cost more) but it's worth every penny!

Outstanding food ! Fast service, efficient. Busy night yet our food came hot and cooked to perfection. The lobster bisque was rich and flavorful, the pear salad was crisp and full of fruit. I highly recommend this place.
