Over Priced Tourist Trap. The food is substandard and way overpriced. You are eating frozen Mexican Food. The best part was the handful of corn chips you get in a very small basket. Really? 10 corn chips and one very small plastic condiment cup of salsa for 2 people. I would never eat here again.

Food was great. Service great. Ice tea was fresh. I'll have to agree what others have said about the salsa casera that comes with the complimentary chips. But I do not like that type of salsa. Never have. So, I would see for yourself. I'd go back. For sure.

We drove to Grand Lake from Estes Park, thinking it may have some interesting options for shopping/dining. Yeah, it didn't. Most restaurants were closed(3pm), and unfortunately, El Pacifico was one of the few that was open. Atmosphere was typical, service was nonchalant, and the food...well, their lunch combo consisted of a couple of low quality tacos thrown on a plate... More

Started off with some the worst salsa I have ever put in my mouth and it down hill from there although the beer was cold. Cheese enchiladas had no flavor neither did the beans or rice. Ordered a shot of tequila and got half the size I have gotten any where else. Don't waste your money.

Nice authentic Mexican! Their large house margarita really hit the spot after a long afternoons hike! Their Pacifico tacos were good and if your really hungry try their steak or chicken Chalupa!

Visited for lunch and the restaurant was as you would expect in terms of atmosphere. Food was ok although there was a bone in my burrito. Sloppy prep job. Was a good burrito other than that. Service was really apathetic and poor.

The food was authentic and delicious. The staff was friendly and the service was great. Happy Hour buy one get one made it so affordable to enjoy their best ever margaritas!
