Spent a week in Grand Lake, Colorado and ate at this restaurant 3 times. The reason I went back is the Food was great, beer was cold, and service was excellent. Tried a new (new for me) tequila recommended by the owner, and YEP it was very smooth and very good. Atmosphere is fantastic also.

I took my family to this restaurant for lunch over Christmas break. It was during the week so there weren't many diners. Despite that, we had to wait a good 10 minutes before we were even seated. After another 10 or 15 minutes, they finally brought water and chips. I noticed something floating in my daughter's water glass and saw... More

We had a very disappointing dinner. We were never greeted and after 15 minutes we're asked if we had put our names on the list. We didn't know we were suppose to - so a staff member did - and then we were ignored for another 20 minutes. A nice young man (staff) recognized that we were still waiting and... More

Very average food and service. Lunch prices are about $8, which is fair, queso $8 and soft drinks $3. . Atmosphere is OK, service uninterested, no refills offered on the iced tea and the server was playing video games on her phone and I had to go and interrupt her to get the bill. Not the most pleasant lunch, but... More

It's just a typical Mexican restaurant, nothing particularly outstanding. The waiter was really nice and tried hard. Their flan dessert was disappointing, as it was a bit firm and lumpy, then doused in chocolate, caramel and whipped cream. A good flan doesn't really need to be tarted up with a bunch of sugary distractions. Good location in downtown with ample... More

We were on a trip/vacation with another couple and stopped here because the other restaurant we tried was a significant wait. There was only one or two other tables full while we were there. Having to pay for more chips and salsa was unusual. Our food arrived and was lukewarm at best. One item had to be sent back because... More

We tried El Pacifico while vacationing in the area and were pretty disappointed. In fact, it went on the list as the worst meal for the whole week. Mediocre at best, it was certainly not worth the prices. I'm always a bit disappointed with any Mexican restaurant that charges extra for a second basket of chips, especially when the first... More

A happy discovery in search of an early dinner led to a delightful meal and fabulous margaritas. Wonderful service and the atmosphere was relaxed. Highly recommend.

What was my go to restaurant in Grand Lake has me now trying other restaurants in the area. Sadly, the food quality has detiorated over the past year. My enchilada dish was without taste. How can such a staple Mexican dish have so little taste? My bean dip appetizer was devoid of beans. The soupy concoction that showed up on... More
