Had another delicious meal at Pacos! Service was impeccable and the soft shell crab delicious. The huge crab was topped with extra lump crab on top. We were told it was the last night they would have them till next season, bummer but all is good there! This is half an order! Bread pudding also yummy! Loves us some Pacos!!

We work by this eatery and stop in for lunch at least once a month. The menu is varied and the staff and owners are very friendly and customer oriented. The food is great and I have never had a bad meal here. The South American slant coupled with modern foods is well worth the try.

Reservations required! Superb food. Excellent service. The owner, Paco, is always at the door. This place is perfect for a pre-theater dinner if attending shows at the Grand 1894 Opera House (next door).

I had a client take me to this restaurant roughly 3 weeks ago and found it to be a great place. I was in town and returned tonight as a single and sat at the bar to have dinner and a couple of drinks.

For the second time I found the service to be impeccable, the chef delivered every dish cooked to perfection and I truly enjoyed myself. My experience is that this is unusual especially for someone sitting at the bar...as opposed to a table. My hat is off to the staff, from start to finish. A tad expensive for Galveston but as the saying goes you get what you pay for!

We are honored by the review you posted about your experience with us. While we are constantly told face to face how much customers enjoy our service, it takes a very special person to proclaim to the online world that they should check us out. You are one of those individuals and we are proud that you do business with us.
