Everything but the tacos is good. They use the pre-made taco shells like Taco Bell but the rest of the menu was tasty. Enchiladas and burritos were good size and tasty

I was really impressed with the quality and flavor of the food. The ambiance was nice too. They also have an outdoor patio with live music.

A friend and I had a horrible cinco de mayo experience here. Terrible service and terrible food. Lousy atmosphere.The host and bartender were very friendly, but our server was less than attentive. They also have an 85.5 sanitation rating. Which is a B. Unacceptable.

Bright and large space but a bit loud and noisy. Dish presentation very nice. Food spice not distinctive. The salsa was best spiced offering on the table.

The food is decent, but the service is hit or miss. I work nearby and tends to be a bit on the spendy side for lunch. Love the chips and salsa.

My wife and I have been eating at La Paz for 30 years, but no more. The service was poor and food was less than average. I'm going to Paco's Tacos from now on!
