We turned up on a packed Valentine’s Day without a booking! However they found us a table. Yes it was a bit slow but, we had an idea it would be. The food was good and the place was great. I would definitely go again....More

We went to Paco's while visiting the area for the Rose Bowl because it was recommended by hotel personnel. The food was fair but not the best Mexican in the area.

We had a big group but got a back room that was perfect. The margaritas were really good. After two I thought it best to stop so I could successfully drive. The food is typical SoCal Mexican faire. I bet the tamales are made, frozen...More

Paco's offers a variety of Mexican food, and the potions are big! I didn't finish half of my steak fajitas and packed the rest of the fajitas, rice and beans. The wait staff are super friendly and well organized with reservations.

When I normally stay in Arcadia, I hit my favorite sushi restaurant. This time I decided to start my stay with Mexican food. A search of google suggested Paco's for the best taco's in town. Don't trust google. The test, according to my wife, of...More
