Friendly staff, clean, great service, good sized portions at reasonable prices and plenty of parking! What's not to like? Panchitos was one of my mom's favorite neighborhood restaurants, the staff still remembers her and she's been gone over 7 years! I brought a business colleague here for lunch and knew we'd have a good and affordable meal. It is so... More

This review is really 2 stars and 4 stars averaging out to 3 ! The service is fast and friendly, and the food is well cooked. My wife LOVED the HOT salsa and thoroughly enjoyed her meal. I found the salsa just too spicy, and ate my food without salsa, so it was bland and boring. They need a medium... More

Took a chance and found this place on gps on way Sonoma from San Francisco. Authentic food and large portions. Had burritos and they were filling.

Yes, a very good tortilla soup, precise spice level. Service is very good and fast. Big portions so don't try many options in the menu in one visit! Nice and cozy family owned restaurant. Definitely a place to visit.

Panchitos is a family owned restaurant in a mini shopping mall in Terra Linda, a suburb of San Rafael California. It has been in operation for over 20 years. They have a good and varied Mexican menu. I always judge a Mexican restaurant by the way they cook "Chile Rellanos". and Panchitos passes the mark. The noise level is medium... More

Panchitos is a regular eating place for my husband and me, along with good friends. The food is very good, freshly made to order, and there is never a wait.

Certainly worth looking for this little gem in the Terra Linda Shopping Center. Excellent Mexican dishes prepared with fresh ingredients. Have not had a bad selection from their menu. Prices are reasonable. Owners often on site and serving patrons. You are treated as family.
