“QUE RICO!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013 via mobile

I love love love Paco's Tacos on Centinela!
Quick and courteous service, homemade tortillas that are outta this world, dynamite salsa, fantastic combination platters (the chicken tacos are amazing!) and the BIGGEST burrito I've ever seen in my life. Very fair prices in a lively, clean and inviting restaurant setting.
Whether you dine in or carry out, Paco's Tacos ROCKS!

“go here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

we were looking for something good to eat before going to the airport and being forced to eat airport food. We found Paco's Tacos and it will become our new on the way to the airport tradition. Really good California Mexican food. The kind you remember from growing up. And they make fresh tortillas to order. I wish I was there now. I had the 1 enchilada with rice and beans plate and it was plenty for lunch (maybe a little too much even) and they are generous with warm tortilla chips and salsa the entire meal.

insider tip: parking and the main entrance are around back.

“My Favorite Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

The title says it all. I'm a native of West Los Angeles and have been going to Pacos for over twenty years. Owned by the same family through its history, they have produced consistently great food. What I like best is that the quality of the basic ingredients shows through. Meat is tender and not full of fat or gristle. Tortillas are made on the spot and are worth a visit alone. And don't get me started on the margarita's. You can get any type of meat with any combo, so if you want Carnitas or Cochinita Pibil, its your call. A full range of calamari dinners is an option as are their unique wet burritos, my favorite being the Pacos, which features a chili relleno inside.

Three presentations of Carne Asada, over a dozen well made combinations. Unique atmosphere. You got to try it.

“Real Deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

Stopped in for dinner while in town visiting friends. Real authentic ambiance. Food & margy's were excellent. Bit of a wait to get in so had to hang out on sidewalk out front. Would go again.
