We had lunch here. The food was ok, but the chips were not. I judge a Mexican restaurant by the chips, and that began my bad impression. They give you a tiny basket for free, then you pay for additional chips. They were thick and stale. Not my type of chip. When we got the bill, it was $92+! There... More

This was really disappointing. The food was way overpriced, and the portions were tiny. I'm fairly adept at picking good Tex-Mex restaurants, but made a huge mistake by suggesting this one to my family. The item I purchased was $11.99 on the menu, but when the bill came out it was $12.99. This wasn't a bank-breaker, but it sealed my... More

We recently spent an evening in Grand Lake and after walking both sides of the main street, decided to have dinner at El Pacifico. The restaurant was cozy, staff was very friendly and the fajitas were excellent. Although the food was a bit pricey, it was not unreasonable and we were very satisfied with our selection for dinner.

This is our repeat visit to El Pacifico, in my opinion it's the best Mexican restaurant in Grand Lake . The food is outstanding and the service is exceptional. The food is fresh like it's direct from mom's kitchen. Good place to meet and greet others..

We enjoyed a hearty meal here and some giant (16 oz) margaritas. My wife really enjoyed here steak tacos and I had the steak burrito. We had just hiked over 10 miles and felt we deserved the protein!

I judge a Mexican restaurant by their carnitas and those at this place were very good. The pitcher of margaritas is a good comparative value at $30.

Our 4 year old was craving refried beans so we dined at the only Mexican restaurant in Grand Lake on our last night in town. Some reviews I had read were not great so I did not have high expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Our server could not have been nicer and patient with our daughter. Food was solid and...

My wife and I dined on a guacamole appetizer. She ordered the chicken grill quesadilla, while I selected the rellenos poblanos. The food was tasty, just not spectacular. Our server Nancy was friendly and helpful.
