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!

Great food and drinks as always. We came at 4pm (which I think is in between shifts) so our server was a little slow to greeting us and getting our drinks, but not a major issue. By the time the dinner rush hit the music was turned up which was a little much.

Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves. It was my friend's first time going and it was her birthday so I am happy that she enjoyed everything.

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner. We had a 9:00 PM reservation but arrived early. We were able to hang out at the bar and have chips and drinks until our table was ready. Everyone was super friendly and attentive and the food was delicious!

Love this place!!! Mine and my fiancé go to place to race Tuesday or just for good food and great drinks. Customer service is always phenomenal.. very obvious they work as team to get the job done. The pineapple mint margarita is simply the best thing in a glass.

Great food. However we set as you enter doors on the left and were placed near some rather loud people. Not restaurants fault with that. Next time prefer seating to the left where environment is more open.

The staffs were so nice and our server was awesome! They brought us the wrong item for one of our order, I mentioned it, they didn’t even raised any questions and just quickly brought us the correct item. We would definitely come back as this is one of our favorite tacos place.

One of our favorite restaurants in Charlotte however this meal was disappointing. The chicken in the tacos was cold. They did replace.
