Paquito's Mexican Restaurant Review

: Paquito's Mexican is a mainstay in the East Village. Its Tex-Mex offerings are mediocre; many people are drawn to the restaurant in the warm weather months to sip potent margaritas or bottled Mexican beer in its leafy back garden. Chips and bland salsa start the meal, followed by your choice of ho-hum tacos or enchiladas blanketed by goopy cheese. Brick-size burritos might be the only taste-bud-saviors on the menu, as they’re packed with chicken, beef, Monterey Jack cheese and guacamole, extending an evening of margarita imbibing.
