Very traditional décor,and verypretty! Food was good,with items not found on typical Mexican Menus. How about a pitcher of 1800 Cuevo margaritas?Shrimp sauteed in a chipotle sauce,wrapped in corn tortilla covered in a greensauce.Yummy !!.

They cal it. A brunch and I guess that's true but it just feels like a fantastic Breakfast. Service is good, but food is great. They also have a patio and back room to have parties.

I love Mexican food. I've lived all over the country and have never found a chimichanga that comes close to the one at Paco's. It's your typical CA mexican restaurant. It's nothing fancy but the service is decent and I've never had a bad meal....More

On our most recent visit, we actually said in unison that we thought a place like Baja Fresh was better food-wise (with admittedly no ambience) for a much smaller bill. The service was pretty good, but we're all about the food.

Mexican food for me was mainly Taco bell and BJ but this one gave me new taste of it. Nice choice of food, a bit heavy on pocket compared to other mexican outlets but once you taste it you would not mind it.
