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

Average food, fun atmosphere located on main street of Grand Lake. The nachos are disappointing but meals can be good. Stick with the margaritas. I don't expect the high quality of mexican food that Denver has to offer but this suffices when in Grand Lake.

First of all, they apparently need more servers because our waitress seemed very hurried and harried. And the place was not that busy. Husband ordered chicken tacos - one hard, one soft. He got 2 soft. My steak burrito was terrible. All that was in it was ground steak (more like hamburger) and a yellow rice that was lacking any... More

Been here several times, all visits were mediocre at best, this will be the last time I/we waist the money! Overpriced, under cooked and absolutely no pride in the food served! Came in with a party of 4, food came out cold, sent it back, came out cold again, even the plates themselves were cold. We dine at plenty of... More
