Paco's Tacos & Tequila Ratings and Reviews
The Cadillac margarita was excellent. They make their own sour mix so it wasn't totally sugar. Meals were well proportioned and great tasting. We were there with friends and stayed much longer than a simple meal. Wait staff was very accommodating and did not pressure us to flip the table. (we made up for it in the tip).
This is a fun-looking place. It was fairly busy so I was hopeful. Drinks took much longer to get than they should have; and they were out of sangria which was very disappointing as that what my fiancee and I like to have before dinner when we go out for Mexican food. The food though was quick and pretty good although his pork carnitas were sweet which he found odd. The worst part was the noise level. The tables are packed pretty close together and there isn't really anything inside to absorb noise. I may go again but will be during a non-busy time.
We had dinner on a Saturday night about 7:30. One couple had been to the restaurant for lunch and enjoyed the food and experience. On this evening, the restaurant was extremely loud. No one being rude or anything, just a very loud place making it hard to have a conversation. Our server was pleasant but obviously over worked. Our queso appetizer was pretty thin. The chips and salsa were first rate. My friend and I had "carnitas". Carnitas typically are chunks of slow roasted pork which are then fried. Not sure what this was but really it was closer to pulled pork which maybe was pan fried? The enchilada suffered from a large volume of filler and spices with no real Tex-Mex quality. The sampler plate was better. Sadly, our entire experience suffered from the poor service. Water was never refilled. We had to ask twice for more chips. Perhaps we will return for lunch...
Dinner out in Charlotte. The fajitas were incredibly flavorful but too chunky to be called fajitas. The meant was well seasoned but was individual pieces of meat that were cooked instead of one solid piece of meat grilled and thinly sliced. The tortillas were delicious but too small. So in the end the flavor was great but the presentation was definitely lacking. Think I will have the tacos next time.
Food here is very uneven. Service is always attentive but a meal on a previous visit was great. This time salmon tasted right out of the freezer, salsa verde was off, and enchiladas were drowned in sauce. Even the quest app tasted like a bechamel sauce with no cheese. Meh!
Not pleased about being seated under very hard blowing A/C vents and being hit in the arm by a wait person attempting to move a high chair across the room. The good news was my arm was so cold and numb that I hardly felt the impact. Other than that Paco’s has Tex-Mex that could hold it’s own if it were consumed in San Antonio. An additional pleasant surprise was being able to order a cold Shiner Bock from the tap.
Have visited this restaurant about three times. The food is always fantastic and the service is excellent. Their smoked brisket taco is out of this world. They have a great selection of tequilas & margaritas. This is my new favorite go-to restaurant and would highly recommend!
Saturday night; very busy. Seemed overwhelmed although we had made reservations and were seated right away. When crowded it is much too loud for my taste. I prefer to go for lunch and sit at the bar which is casual and quieter. The food is good and their beer list while limited is better than average.
