Don't waste your time or Money – I went by this place because it was rated #1 and I was not happy with the food or the service our waitress came by two times to take our order and drop off our drinks No refills, No asking how our gross food was. She didn't even bother to give us our bill we had to ask someone else to help us. Stay away from this place unless you like wasting your money!!!!!!!!
As authentic as mexican cuisine gets! – I have literally tried just about every mexican restaurant in Miami looking for the most authentic taste and Paquitos has taken the lead every time. The food as great. The pico de gallo (a salsa of fresh chopped tomatos, onions, cilantro, lime and some hot peppers) they serve before the meal with tortilla chips is delicious and mildly hot. Since I have tried just about everything on their menu, my favorite dishes are the mole poblano and enchiladas in in any style (if you are into that)! Another thing they are excellent in is with their Margaritas! Seriously the best in town...no one compares!!! I travel 1 hour and 30 minutes atleast once or twice a month for their Mole and Margaritas!! Oh yeah.....and if the night is young and starting on a good note, we take the party to their bar/karaoke spot where they will have a dj playing music to dance or sing along to.
I always find parking there, they sit you pretty fast, their mariachi band are the best in town, the waiters speak english and spanish, their prices are very reasonable. Good for group parties but keeping in mind that the space can be a little tight because their chairs are these big wooden mexican/ santa fe looking things and the tables are pretty big and heavy too, plus the place gets full. Paquitos is also great for dinner dates with that special someone, especially because they have 2 seater booths.
I just remembered, the last time I was there, I was sitting at the table across from Matt Damons table. !
Tucked-away restaurant is a neighborhood standout for its Mexican flavors and festive atmosphere. – In Short
This strip-mall restaurant is easy to miss, but it's worth a look at the the over-the-top decor. The dining area is overflowing with every manner of Mexican handicraft and tchotchke, from earthenware to woven tapestries. The food is also worth pulling over for. Cilantro-heavy salsa and light, crisp chips elevate the appetizer beyond the norm. Entrees range from the mandatory burrito, enchilada and taco combination plates to authentic dishes like the green mole with pork.
Margarita lovers this is the place! – Been going there (since '90) when it was just a little ol' building on the side of the road. They're authetic & the best margarita pitchers made with Sauza! (yum!) Homemade salsa... just great!! Food, drinks, everything es mucho bueno!! It's a north Miami secret tucked a way in a corner! "Cheers!"
Good Happy Hour – Good deals at happy hour (except for the blah, not-too-fresh food at the bar.) Coctail waitresses are very sloooooow, but pleasant. The beer is ice cold, served in a bucket. Margaritas are so-so, but the happy hour prices are super. Stick to the beer-the Mexican beers are all excellent, you can't go wrong. But eat first, because the free food they serve is pretty bad. The restaurant is a step above Taco Bell- not at all spicy-very bland, but it's nice and quiet in the booths.
incredible – i agree with the above post. the salsa verde is the most amazing salsa ive ever tried. very tangy and spicy. the food is superb with big portions. drinks are great. theres even a live band that plays mexican music at your table. not my favorite thing, but lots of people ive taken there like it. i dont live in FL anymore, but if i visit for a week, i am there 2-3 times.
Paquito's Mexican Restaurant – My wife and I love Mexican food and wherever we travelled we would look for Mexican Restaurants. The best food and the best variety can be found in Paquito's- in Miami (actually North Miami Beach). It is run by a Mexican family and is authentic as they come. The fajita's are done perfectly. You have to ask for the salsa verde however- its worth it. Give this place a try- you won't be disappointed.
