I am addicted to the rolled tacos, at this place- I work late evenings and I love stopping here for a late nite snack! Had the shredded beef enchiladas tonight, messy and delicious, full of vegetables and beef. Always hits the spot.

Especially when it has a drive thru! Plus the food is delicious and filling.Great portion sizes and choices on the menu. They should open more of these around town. Since i work overnight, i can grab lunch or breakfast on the way home. Their breakfast burritos are AWESOME!

This place looks a little dangerous from the street and even more questionable once you get inside. After you order and question your choice......to eat here....you will find large portions and good food. I am sure that you will find the food above the norm when you eat at other Mexican food establishments.

Think Chipotle on steroids! It's hit or miss going through drive thru, came here the other day and sat in drive thru for 20 minutes before deciding to go inside only to find out their drive thru beeper wasn't working. My ultimate favs here are the bean tostadas, shredded beef dripping with oil hard tacos, and the rolled tacos (think... More

I stumbled in here late at night from a bar and ordered the most delicious burrito I have ever eaten. It was so freaking good I can't even describe it to you. Though to be 100% with you the first time I tried this place (a couple of years ago) I was sober and my reaction was - hmm this... More

Can't go wrong with some local Mexican food in a fast food environment, open 24/7, drive up or walk in. Plenty of good food, no waiting. Good location.

We used to get take out here and always enjoyed it. Last time I ordered beef chimichangas. Two bites in I found a piece of an egg shell larger than a quarter inside my chimi. I was so disgusted I threw the whole meal in the trash. How does this happen? There aren't even eggs in a chimi!!

I ordered the number 3: 2 cheese enchiladas with beans and rice. The enchiladas came and were just a tortilla with shredded cheese, not melted and not heated. It was awful.

Pancho's is phenominal. It is a fast food format dishing up delicious authentic Mexican food as good as it gets. Yes, it is messy, noisy, funky, dirty, really CHEAP, and ALWAYS busy. The salsa bar has over a dozen FRESH homemade concoctions that is simply a JOY to explore, and plenty of heat to satisfy anyone. How I wish that... More
