From the margaritas to the deep fried ice cream, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Possibly the best guacamole I've ever had. I had the philly burrito, which was an interesting and delicious twist on a philly cheese steak. The staff was wonderful and always ready to bring us what we needed. Highly recommended.

Every Friday & Saturday starting at around 10pm a group of professional musicians get together and play covers. Their range is amazing. And the quality for the... More

I especially enjoyed their spicy salsa. They were providing live entertainment in the bar area but the main dinning area was separated so you could still have a conversation. The wait staff was attentive and... More

Love lots of things about Pancho's, mentioned in the title & the dirty margaritas are very good too. However, the food was only ok, not a lot of flavor in the burritos. Although one person in our group ordered sizzling beef for their fajitas & was very pleased. As we were leaving, 2 awesome guitarists were playing, forcing us to... More

This restaurant is my fav because of many reason. First is because of their great service and finger licking food, second because this same location I met my wife for the very first time for lunch. Atmosphere, location, service and food worked its magic. One of my favorite of all time .

We came as a result of asking our bartender for recommendations on good Mexican Food in the area. What we found was the best that we had eaten on our whole trip across country! The food, atmosphere and personalized service were fantastic. We were smiling the whole day afterwards. ::)
