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!

Went for Valentine’s Day and it was great. The waitress was very attentive, personable and kind. I’m a vegan and they were able to accommodate me. I got the veggie fajitas with no sour cream, butter or cheese. The margarita was amazing. Would definitely go back.

This place never disappoints. Once again we had a great meal and our service was wonderful. We eat here at least twice a month. We tend to always order the same thing - an order of guac (which is made at your table) and we split an order of chicken fajitas.

Our table was ready upon arrival. Our server was very nice, but took a while to bring things. The food was lacking in flavor, though the presentation was ok. We were just not impressed, and this is the 2nd time we have dined here.

Good Mexican food in a fun (lively) atmosphere. We arrived to a very crowded restaurant at 8:45 pm! I judge a place on their chips and salsa & margaritas so this was a great meal. Love the decor. Good (not outstanding) service but no complaints either. Right near Southpark so convenient location.
