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...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.

This was really disappointing. The food was way overpriced, and the portions were tiny. I'm fairly adept at picking good Tex-Mex restaurants, but made a huge mistake by suggesting this one to my family. The item I purchased was $11.99 on the menu, but when...More

We recently spent an evening in Grand Lake and after walking both sides of the main street, decided to have dinner at El Pacifico. The restaurant was cozy, staff was very friendly and the fajitas were excellent. Although the food was a bit pricey, it...More
