We had an open table reservation for 12:15 PM on a Friday and we were seated immediately. We ordered 1 soup and 2 entrees after a reasonable time delay, and were given chips and salsa to enjoy. Salsa was good, the chips were warm.
However, it was a full 45-minute wait from that point until we received any additional food. My husband and I both considered this to be completely unreasonable. We ordered directly from the menu, with no modifications. My husband received his lunch entree simultaneously with his soup. My entree came several minutes later, without the tortillas and no mention of their absence. After I flagged someone down to ask about them, I was told they were coming. They did come a couple minutes later. While the food itself was quite tasty, hot, and enjoyable, my husband and I don’t plan to return again because the timing of the delivery was so very off (without explanation or any apparent reason or apology), that it made the dining experience an overall negative one. There are too many other places from which to choose!
I had been there once in the past with a friend when it was a much smaller place; it was mid-afternoon, no crowd, owner/chef visited with us, and food was served quickly.
This most recent experience was nothing like that one. Except the food itself was tasty.
We dined on a Sunday - so were unaware it was not a full menu. The food was delicious - but the music was a bit loud for a conversation.
This restaurant is not following any CDC health guidelines even though they state they are on this app. They state they have patio seating and they really don’t. The food was on par with Taco Cabana at Mesero prices. One server was wearing a mask and no other staff members were masked. Bathrooms didn’t have paper towels for drying hands. Complete lack of responsibility for keeping a healthy and safe environment for customers.
Three strikes you're out. I have been there three times in a row to have been told they are out of the trout. That's the only thing I like there obviously they should take it off their menu. I will not be back.
Don't go for the food. Food was very bland. Meat wasn't seasoned at all. Salsa was good and drinks were good. Waitress was nice.
We got there at 0855 for a 9 am reservation. Building totally dark. Sat out front until about 0910 hrs, building still dark and locked. Silly me. Left and won’t return.
The food was pretty good, the waiter was very good and helpful, but the kitchen was extremely backed up and took well over an hour after ordering to come out. By then it was pretty late and we just got it to go.
A great Father’s Day celebration at Pacos on Magnolia. Fresh and flavorful Mexican food with just the right amount of heat. The restaurant is vibrant with festive folk art and comfortable seating. Paco’s waitstaff are hospitable and knowledgeable. I live supporting family-owned businesses and I’ll be back!
Decent food and strong drinks
Great service delicious food
We went for Cinco de Mayo, so we anticipated it being busy. Our server was amazing and the food and drinks were great. However, the bar was so backed up, we had to wait an excessive amount of time for drinks. Then, we were charged regular prices vs happy hour prices even though we ordered during happy hour. Overall, it was still a fun time with friends.
Superb! This place is always great. Good price, great food, great drinks.
We ordered margaritas, our glasses were full from top to bottom with ICE! Maybe got half a margarita nothing but ice. When we pointed it out to our server she said “will that’s how we make them. First and last trip to Pacos
Nice Easter brunch! Migas, breakfast racks were great! Katie was a great server too!
Great food, service, and atmosphere.
I went with my family of five. The service was laborious, we just ordered water and that took a long time. Next we had a long wait for our food order to be taken. In between time the waiter was behind the bar looking at his phone. After waiting a long time for our food, four orders were presented instead of five. After five minutes everyone else started eating then the waiter said there had been a mix up and that the fifth order was coming. After twenty minutes and no sign of the fifth plate everyone had finished so we went to the cashier who adjusted the bill accordingly and we left with one family member unfed. Very disappointing we so wanted to like the place.
The service was excellent! I had the torta de carnitas, it was average. Not something you would write home about. The rice had a different taste. Perhaps like a lime taste to it. Definitely, won’t be going back.
Paco's is the best for fresh authentic Mexican food.
Did not honor open table reservation. Turned us away at the door.
Always great food and drinks!! Must try the anejo old fashioned when you go! One of the best tequila drinks in Fort Worth!!
The food and service was very nice.
Got seated right away. Server was sweet but service was slow. Chips and queso were really good. Food was okay. I had barbacoa and it was bland.
Great place with great service. Really unique Tex-Mex designer menu. Owner is present and is attendant to customer and staff needs. This is a great gem on Magnolia Ave!
Server was very nice and attentive. Had to send food back to be cooked more, but they did it quickly without complaint and it was good
Could not have been fresher or tastier! I wanted to go back again the next day, it was that good!! A tip for those trying to avoid crowds - since Paco’s stays open until 2am, there is a very light crowd during the early evening during happy hour.
Love this place so much! BEST chips and good spicy salsa. Molcajete bowl, fajitas, everything we’ve had is great. Small staff, nice to have them remember us when we come in :)
Great Mexican food with a nice atmosphere. The service was really good. Highly recommend for an authentic Mexican food experience.
I really wanted to love this place. The service was outstanding. They were very friendly and accommodating. We didn't realize we arrived just a few minutes after breakfast ended, but they had absolutely no issue with letting us order breakfast. Unfortunately, the food was just ok. My son had a breakfast ham burrito that he really enjoyed. Daughter enjoyed the Torta breakfast. Husband had the Huevos Divorciados and I had the Chilaquiles. Ours were the dishes that we did not enjoy. My dish was just very watery and just not enjoyable to eat. My husband's was just "ok". On top of that, we had a few flies hovering around our table which made things a little annoying. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and the staff is superb though. Maybe we'll try dinner menu next time.
The service was great, as was the environment (we like to talk without having to yell at each other).
But the Mexican food (Valentines menu) was not up to our expectations.
Took my wife there for Valentine's day. Staff was friendly but overworked. We did appreciate their turning people away that did not have reservations in order to service the ones that did. Food was limited to a few items on a special menu. We will go back on a "normal" day to try their real menu. Overall we had a positive impression.
Great food and service definitely will go again
They did a great job with a large party, only one server and cook!
The menu had some original items and tasted delicious.
I would suggest perhaps some more vegetable/vegetarian options
The Poblano Queso soup is fantastic.
Best Franco Mex restaurant around! Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!
We dined on a Saturday night and the restaurant was lively. First of all the snail crepes may be the best thing I have ever eaten and I have never liked snails. They were cooked to perfection. Our table had the trout, the tlacoyos (sp?) and the pork special. No one was disappointed. Francisco and his crew did a great job. Thanks, Paco!
Best Mexican-French restaurant. Good, reasonable wine list also.
Really good food, not your typical TexMex. However, should not close before closing time, even if not busy
I visited Paco's after hearing around the neighborhood that it was back (must have been prior to us moving to Fairmount) and delicious. The food was good although not extraordinary. I liked the spicy salsa and they make a good guac (although the portion size was a little small for the price). The drink selection is sub-par but I was only looking for wine which they had. (For those looking for a margarita with your Mexican meal, this place only serves wine margaritas.)
Anyway, the place was practically empty. Which is a real shame for the good food. I'd definitely go back and try more of their tacos.
good local place.. nice inside and food is tasty.. will be a hit as word gets out.
Not impressed. Very limited menu selection. Margaritas are wine based.
