Restaurant Spotlight – Paco’s Mexican
One of the most talked-about subjects in our Facebook group is restaurants. MIC’s Economic Development Committee decided to visit Mableton restaurants periodically, and provide some basic information about them — or in other words, “shine a spotlight” on the restaurants in our community. MIC does not endorse the restaurants; the Spotlight exists simply to introduce Mabletonians to restaurants in Mableton.

Ambience: Very comfortable, clean environment, music not too loud, and pleasant lighting. Lots of booths (with comfortable padded seats) for better sound absorption and cozy “feel”.
Parking: Paved, plentiful
Experience: Early dinner hour on a Friday night, already really busy. Seated promptly, not rushed for our orders, yet very quick delivery of meals, piping hot.
What we chose: complimentary chips & salsa (chips were very tasty, even without the salsa):
* Combination plate #7 – 3 small portions of 1 enchilada (choice of cheese/chicken/beef) , 1 beef burrito, 1 chiles relleno (appeared to be green bell pepper vs. authentic poblano)
* Chicken & Shrimp – basically “deconstructed” Fajita with butterflied chicken breast (tender & moist) topped with pineapple slice, cheese dip, all atop standard Fajita mix of sautéed peppers/onions/tomatoes, and side of rice/beans and upon request, tortilla on the side
* Chiles Poblano – (with chicken, but Fajita and beef are other options) – two Poblano peppers stuffed/topped with (delicious) “melty” cheese and salsa, topped with rice and guacamole salad (lettuce/dollop of guacamole/tomatoes)
