Tacos and margs are our stress relievers. Some people go to the gym, others play video games; we get tacos and margaritas. Paco's is one of the most raved about Tex-Mex spots in Charlotte, and with 4/5 stars on Yelp we had to fall through and see what the hype was about. Paco's is located across from SouthPark Mall, right next to a cluster of cute boutiques. Overall, we thought it was a tad over-hyped. The guac was made fresh at our tables, and it was good. However, Bakersfield* arguably has the best guac in America, so it was slow for Paco's. Overall, the food was decent, but the margaritas were lit! Pacos isn't a gourmet restaurant, but if you want some solid Tex-Mex and good drinks, this is your spot!
*Review coming soon
Niks Picks: I ordered two Tacos Al Pastor, and a Paco's Taco. Mostly because I am obsessed with Tacos Al Pastor, and partially because none of the other tacos sounded thaaaat great. I had a margarita with jalapeños in it which was absolutely delicious, but that's about all I remember about this meal. I only had one marg, so I can't even blame it on the sauce.
Fox's Picks: I ordered three tacos because well, I'm greedy. I order like a pro linebacker but my stomach has the capacity of a toddler. It was a lot of food, bro. I ordered the Wood Grilled Chicken Taco (add avocado ranch on the side), the Paco's Taco, and the Al Pastor. The tacos come with rice and your choice of beans. I had the Texas Mule and I got semi-lit (smh).
Vibes: We wouldn't get too dressed up. Also, don't take your S/O here on a date unless you're aiming to throw back some drinks. This place probably won't get you a second date unless your personality is fire, bro. This is a quick spot to come with a group of friend and drink margs.
Price: $11 - 25
