Tonight my good friend, Megan, and I met up for a girl’s dinner at Paco’s in Winter Park. Her husband travels a lot, and Kevin’s been working a ton, so we decided to grab dinner together. I’ve always heard that Paco’s is a great hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint, but the service can be really bad.
I’m pretty sure Paco’s is a house on the side of the road turned into a restaurant, but it’s really cute and quaint on the inside.
Our service turned out to be great. Everyone was really nice and welcoming when we walked in, and our waitress was very sweet and efficient.
The menu consists of your typical Mexican fare from tacos to burritos to enchiladas.
I ordered a combination dinner, which came with a taco, two enchiladas, rice and beans. It was a lot of food for about $12. All of their prices were really reasonable.
I really liked that the tacos come in your choice of hard or soft, and the soft tacos come in either flour or corn tortillas. I love corn tortillas. I opted for a corn tortilla filled with beef. For my enchiladas, I got one with beef and one with cheese.
The ground beef in both my taco and enchilada were under-seasoned. It tasted like normal ground beef without anything added. The real star of the plate was the rice. It was light, fluffy and really well seasoned.
On my next order, I think I’ll try a different filler since I wasn’t thrilled with the ground beef, but you really can’t beat the prices. Plus, all the chips and salsa you can eat doesn’t hurt.
What is your favorite Mexican food dish? I know it’s not traditional, but I love taco salads! Maybe I’ll try that next time I’m at Paco’s…
