We just moved to the area and decided to try this place. It was good and reasonably priced will go back again.

After living in the Quad Cities for all of my 56 years, I finally had dinner at El Pavito this evening. This was a great Mexican restaurant that is full of character. We had a great meal at a good price. We will be back!

Husband got carnitas. He said they were just alright and extremely hot. I got chicken tacos, soft shell supposedly. They came out in greased soggy corn shells. Chicken had an odd taste and left a terrible taste in your mouth. Not impressed.
