Paco’s Tacos & Tequila offers big Texas flavor in Charlotte’s SouthPark neighborhood. FS Food Group founder Frank Scibelli traveled Texas with Tex-Mex culinary expert and cookbook author Robb Walsh in order to uncover the secrets of authentic Tex-Mex recipes, and the attention to detail shines through in the bold flavors of each dish. A variety of spices that season Paco’s dishes are imported from a Texas-based company, and a tortilla machine creates fresh tortillas daily.

From the Wood-Fired Grilled Fajitas to the Cheese Enchiladas with chili con carne, Paco’s menu showcases the freshest quality ingredients. Central to the dining experience is the bar, which features more than 85 tequila varieties, several outstanding wines and a selection of beers from Texas, Mexico and North Carolina. No need to travel to Texas for your fix-join us for lunch or dinner seven days a week and see why Paco’s is always the hot spot!

We go with my 10 yr ok’d daughter almost once a week. Great quality and service. Suggest making a reservation on weekends and busy nights to get in quick.

Having lived in Austin for many years, I despaired that I would ever find comparable---or even decent--Mexican food in Charlotte. Paco's Tacos proved me wrong. Outstanding food. Thank you, thank you!

The music was deafening in the lower section. When crowded, you cannot carry on conversations unless you raise voices. Maybe consider some ceiling acoustics to reduce the extreme noise.

Paco’s is one of my favorite restaurants and normally the food, drink and service quality is exceptional. Yesterday, everything was off. The food was just okay. My margarita was awful and the service was poor. Our waitress kept forgetting about our requests. I will return but I sure hope next time things are better.

Food is fine but Margaritas are always a disappointment. I just feel like I have to order a Margarita at this restaurant. $13 and 90% cubed ice. 4 sips of lime flavored water and very little tequila.

Food and service are consistently good but it is extremely noisy to the point where my friend I felt like we had to yell at each other across our booth. The poor server with a mask also had to yell. If the vaccines work why do people who’ve had them have to wear a mask? Let’s give these restaurants a break. It’s their choice at this point.

Been here many times. Usually a great experience. Waited longer than usual for order to arrive and when it did it was cold and flavorless. Ordered fajitas and didn’t come on a hot skillet. They said they were out of skillets? Restaurant is at half capacity so that sounded odd. Will assume this was a one off (probably having staffing problems like everyone else) and give them another chance but for the prices needs to better.

Pacos is always out go to Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere is always special. We have a 9 month old and the staff is always accommodating to him and us.

The food is excellent and the staff is always welcoming. The drinks are good as well.

We will continue to come back here weekly while we live in Charlotte.

We had to wait longer than usual after making a reservation at 4:30...odd. Chicken in my quesadilla was a bit too thick for my taste but everything else was good.

We requested an outdoor table but when we arrived they said they do not accept outdoor reservations through Open Table. This was extremely disappointing since they was no indication when making the reservation that they would not be able to accommodate us. We waited for an outdoor table, but there was no rush to clean it up when the previous customer left. Not happy with either of these situations. Will look to eat at another restaurant in the future. Our waitress was nice and quikc.

I love Paco's Taco's and have missed it greatly during COVID-10... their take-out is good, but there's nothing like fresh-and-hot out of the kitchen to scratch my Paco's itch!
