Stopped in for lunch and it was an alright experience. The menu was pretty big and the food looked good. The staff was very friendly however our server made 2 appearances, 1 to take drink orders and the other to give us the bill. The staff that brought our food out were kind enough to refill our drinks, or they wouldnt have been refilled. We both ordered a brisket salad. When the food came, it was actually pretty good! The biggest bummer (or downside I guess) was that the meat we were given didnt seem or taste anything like brisket. It was a lot closer to pulled beef like off a roast. It appeared that way, and was super salty like pulled beef would be. So it was rather disappointing being it was a good up-charge for the brisket. Thought about bringing it up, but by the time the waiter came around, we just wanted to head back. The place had a great atmosphere and we may give it another try as maybe it was just an off day for our waiter and maybe our order was misunderstood?? Either way, well try again when were back in town.
Last minute decision to stop here because my mom wanted tacos. She was satisfied, tacos were good but most of all the table prepped guacamole...DELICIOUS!!! Drinks not so convincing. Nice size place with outside seating along with bar as well. Cannot remember our waitress name but she was professional with great recommendations and conversation. Coming here again when visiting.
Visited on a Thursday after work because Mexican is always a good idea. They have a few patio seats but it was a little chilly so I sat inside at the bar. I started with a water and Cadillac margarita, and then decided to order the veggie chimichanga with white rice instead of red rice and black beans since those are the only two rice and bean options that are meatless. I was given complimentary chips and salsa, and my drink came out shortly after. The salsa was good with a hint of spice and the margarita was perfect. They weren't stingy with the liquor, which a lot of places tend to be. My food came out pretty quickly. The white rice has veggies which I wasn't expecting, but was glad to see that it wasn't just plain white rice. Rice had a nice flavor and I enjoyed. The chimichanga was good and flavorful, but I would've liked it to be fried a little more with the vegetables chopped a little more because there were some rather large veggies in it. I also ordered the veggie fajitas to go for my sister. She had the same comment about the veggies, but enjoyed the fajitas. Overall it was a good experience and recommend giving em a try if you're in the area.
Service here is excellent. I havent had a bad experience, they refill chips and drinks so quick. I feel like royalty here! The food is a good place to end your day and will definitely fill you up. Mezcal was a good tasting experience, and the chips are perfect.
While Christmas shopping in Charlotte we decided to eat at Paco's Tacos and couldn't have been happier. I had the three tacos, two with chicken and one with mahi. Wish I would have gotten three with mahi they were that good. My wife got the Fiesta bowl with chicken and said it was very good. Not only was the food awesome but the service was even better. As we were driving home 1.5hrs away we got a call from the restaurant that I forgotten my credit card . Now that is looking out for the customer. It actually gave us an excuse to go back a few days later. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for Mexican food in Charlotte.
