Running errands yesterday, we thought we'd try the BBQ place next door to Pancho's that was on our route, but they were closed. We almost left the parking lot when we saw a few groups of folks enter the restaurant next door. Pancho's Taco Tuesday...More

I know a lot of locals really like this place, but I have yet to eat anything there that was above just "average". The restaurant has been in the same location for a long time, and it shows.

Good tasting authentic Mexican food. The cheese crisps and the super tacos are to die for. You can't go wrong with enchiladas beans and rice or any other other menu items. The wait staff is friendly, the food is awesome and I make sure that...More

If you like walking into 1954 decor and like bad food, go to Pancho's. Service was good. Ordered a combo plate. Everything had yellow cheese on it. Yucky refried beans, mild favorless salsa and flavorless enchiladas. Sad to report my soda was the best. Very...More
