    We made a reservation through open table, but the points were not allowed. Not sure why, but the restaurant modified it since we were bringing fewer adults, but small children and an infant. The food was very poor. Service was very good. The beef shank in sauce was super tough, and the flavor was mediocre. In order to get any flavor you had to purchase their trio of sauces, which again had very little flavor compared to real Mexican food. The children's mac and cheese had very little cheese, but the cost was very high for a small bowl of pasta. Drinks were OK and they were very accommodating. 4 of the 7 adults did not eat much of their meal, it was just not worth the calories. This could have been a very good place to dine with our large family group, but the food was so disappointing we will likely not go back unless they start serving better food. I felt that after spending nearly $500 for 7 adults and 3 small kids, that we would have had a better experience. Taco Bell even has way better tasting food, and thats not saying much.

    First time visiting this establishment. Always wanted to try it and it was a bit disappointing. We likely will not return. Reservations were for lower dining level however we were seated in upper level. It was extremely noisy on that level likely due to a combination of the venue acoustics as well as upper level had large tables with big groups so people were very loud. We like good energy and the bustle and lively conversation that goes with that but this was extremely loud (people were yelling). Many restaurants are loud and don’t seem to bother us like this place did. In addition, there were kids running around between tables and the upper and lower level. This restaurant felt like a rowdy bar which is okay if that’s what you are looking for in a restaurant. Overall dining experience was over 90 minutes. It took a long time for our entree to arrive (45 minutes after ordering). One of our servers was quite delightful and had it not been for her, the rating would have been lower. She did come by to say it was coming out “soon” as she was waving her hands indicating maybe. Food was good but not overly fantastic and compared to their Mexican restaurants in the area we prefer the food at 2 other establishments. Enchiladas Suiza was good but super spicy. We were told they had “a little kick” but I would describe it as a big kick. We like spicy but the burning lasted awhile after the meal. Menu does not indicate a spicy dish. Green sauces at other places have not been this spicy. Having said that, the shredded chicken in the enchilada was super tender and moist. Chips and guac were okay. Guac was bland. Quesadilla was good. Observing the lower level it looked as though the tables were for 2-4 diners. That may have been a better experience than the upper level with large groups. No bathroom tissue in restroom. Lol. Kind of the topper for the night as we chuckled and agreed we won’t be back.

    Everything was good...except the food. The chips and dips appetizer was delicious. The quesadilla... not so much. The burrito and street tacos were great; the beans and rice were meh. I am typically forgiving, but this is the second disappointing visit here in a row where the food was not worth the price.

    This was a disappointing experience for us. We came here for my birthday dinner. The service wasn't very attentive and the food was ok. Our server never came back after our food was served. Ordered chicken enchiladas but served cheese. Charged for chicken too. Burrito, tacos and guacamole lacked flavor. The Purist margarita just tasted like booze, no limey-ness. On the plus side, the noise level was good for conversation. Appreciated paper menus. The chips were delicious.

    Seating was fast, atmosphere was busy for a Monday. Server was attentive. Must purchase chips and salsa-salsa was okay. Chips very salty. Margarita was god but 3 swallows and it was gone because glass was filled to the brim with ice. Carnitas was VERY fatty. Sent it back and the server removed the cost from the bill. Mixed tacos were okay-pork most flavorful. It was our 41st wedding anniversary which I noted in the reservation but no special acknowledgement. Overall, service was average and food was poor. A disappointing anniversary dinner.

    We were celebrating my Mom's birthday & it was her first time here. It took forever to get our drink orders in, only to discover they were out of two of our choices. We then ordered appetizers & dinner. Our drinks & dinner arrived at the SAME time, followed quickly by our appetizers. Needless to say what was intended to be a relaxing dinner enjoying each other, we felt we were rushed through one cocktail & dinner while our appetizers died on the table. The food was good as usual, but we were disappointed that ALL of our food & (finally!) drinks came at the same time. The restaurant wasn't that busy & there was no reason to rush us out of the door.

    We went to Paquitos for my twins 12th birthday, as they had requested. We told the server it was there birthday and though she was lovely and wished them a happy birthday, I thought it was odd that she didn’t offer them a small dessert for their birthday. Paquitos is a bit overpriced and I don’t think customers should have to pay for chips and salsa. Otherwise, we like this restaurant.

    Food was fresh and delicious. Salsa trio was a nice combination of different flavors to have with chips and our meals. The mixed tacos were a great choice for having one of every taco on the menu. My wife enjoyed the enchilada suizas. Margaritas were excellent as well. Although they were small for the price, they used quality ingredients. The Perfect Purist Margarita uses fresh lime juice and not some sweet, nasty bottled sour mix. It also comes with a float of Combier. This restaurant is worth a try for excellent, authentic Mexican food.

    9/6/22: The food was absolutely amazing! The beer bartered Baja fish tacos & carne Asade were winners 😍 Unfortunately the service just wasn’t there. I had wanted another drink and it was empty, but I waited so long to try and order one that I just wanted to move to the bar instead. We had to share one fork to eat our entrees - which is fine because we don’t care about things like that. It could have been looked at as a tiny mistake, but the server was the one who took it away, and should have made sure we had the presets needed to eat. I also would have appreciated more time to enjoy our apps, and to have them taken off the table before being given our entrees. I am a server at a fine dining restaurant myself, I understand our reservation was at 8:00 and maybe he was phased. (We all wanna go home :p). The restaurant was very slow and it was a special occasion for us, I marked it on open table. I really wish we could’ve had more service. The host was great and nice to us, as was the bartender. There was nothing wrong with our server. He was really nice and he had a really nice smile but I didn’t get to see it until the end of the dinner. :( we will be back!

    Disappointing. The steak I paid to add to my salad was so tough and chewy that it was inedible. The pork in my daughter’s tacos was gristly and fatty. The rice wasn’t fully cooked. My margarita was mostly ice with about 3 oz of liquid. The server, who’ve we’ve had on several occasions, is not friendly nor attentive. We won’t be coming back.

    We come from an area if the country where Mexican food is king. We were most disappointed in the food. The guacamole didn’t taste like guac at all. The chicken enchiladas my wife ordered were extremely spicy yet nothing on the menu mentioned that. The tacos were just so-so. Overall a great letdown as we were hoping for some delicious Mexican food. We didn’t get any.
