No idea how this place even ranks above a 50% on Citysearch. Chips & salsa - basic Mexican and hard to goof up were cold, stale and greasy. Our dishes arrived at the table cold and were un-flavorful. Drinks were strong and service staff attentive and nice. Not a place I'll return to anytime soon. There are better options out there.
This is probably a decent place for happy hour, where you are provided strong drinks at a good price, along with a festive environment. I would not recommend the restaurant for dinner/lunch. They need a new chef or to re-look at their recipes and/or get new staff on the kitchen line. I.e. the queso "fundido" appetizer seemed like it was grocery store shredded cheese from a bag that was placed in a microwave -- waxy, sloppy muck that couldn't even be scooped with a chip. The Sopas, tamales, and burrito were the other dinner items we ordered and they were mediocre at best. The restaurant wasn't busy and all of our food items arrived cool...no bubbling in the salsas or cheeses. Definitely not a place to go to satisfy Mexican food craving. The environment isn't clean either. Sorry. Thumbs down! Would not recommend this place to guests or friends.
Paquito bad – I like the food but they are not clean! I would not recommend to anyone ... bad bad bad
FUN TIMES – Great fun place for bithday or other celebration. Good drink specials. Great for a crowd. Food is so-so; lots better Mexican restaurants in town. But, who cares if you're having fun? Great way to start a tequila-fueled weekend with friends!
Awesome food – there are several reasons i have been going to Paquito's for years- the food in delicious (especially grandma's recipes), their mojitos are made strong yet sweet, the owners are great people, happy hour pricing is low.... overall, best Mexican food in all of Miami (including homestead)
Overhyped – Saw the reviews and decided to go for happy hour. Great salsa and 2 for 1 beers...can't beat that! Went for dinner a couple weeks later and everything was bland. I mean, everyone's food was bland. The food is too expensive to not have any flavor. I will recommend the HH though. Fill up on the salsa and skip the dinner.
Terrible restaurant – the food was terrible , overcooked, chicken was hard, very oily Yuck!
The service was even worse than the food , the waitress could not handle the large group and forgot some orders, Eventually the forgotten platter arrived after other Diners had finished after complaining twice.
Complaints to the manager who arrived after 15 mins where met with a "couldnt care less"attitude and not interested in addressing the problem with poor service
The Salsa and nachos were OK. The Desserts were tasteless
I would rate this as the worst restaurant I have ever eaten in with the worst Service. By Comparison , McDonalds is a better option
Glad we found it. – We have been looking for good mexican food and we found it here. The food is great and very high quality. Also, the service was impecable. We had a very attentive server. Highly recommend.
BEST MEXICAN FOOD AND EATING ATMOSPHERE!!! – I Must say that this is one of the best places for mexican food. The atmosphere is great , live mariachi on the weekends. Service was great, we did not need to make reservations. I felt I was eating at my grandma's house. The attention from servers was impecable . Don't miss it!!!
