Great Food, friendly staff, large portions. A local favorite place for the best Mexican food in the area. Try the Chicken Fajita Nachos - it is a challenge for 2 people but so enjoyable. Staff are very friendly and keep the drinks refilled (they have Coke Zero). Highly recommended

The service was very quick and very friendly, but the food was quite salty. The service size was very generous.

We have been going to Pancho's Place since it opened about 19 years ago. We still see some of the same staff now that was here when it opened. The food and service are always consistently good. You may find more "gourmet" Mexican food elsewhere, but for the price, food quality, and service, you can't beat Pancho's.

I have been going to Pancho's for what seems like 20 years. We go just about every week for either the Taco deal or Enchilada deal on Monday and Tuesday. I always see a familiar face. The wait staff is great. The salsa Verde is very good.

Pancho's in Franklin has great food with quick service. I recommend the taco salad, enchiladas, tacos, and chalupas. This is one of the best, if not the best Mexican restaurant in Franklin. The locations in Spring Hill and Columbia are great, too.

My husband and I eat here all the time. This place is consistently good and they bring the food out quickly. Sometimes it's even faster than a drive through restaurant! Pancho's has a "where everybody knows your name" vine which I love. There menu is classic and similar to many other Mexican places, but their chips are always fresh! I've... More

I have been eating at Panchos since I was a kid, so it was only natural for me to bring my own kids here! Panchos is that "hometown" restaurant-small, good food, good prices, and they treat you like family :)

Best Mexican food in Franklin, TN. We live in Franklin, and eat here as often as we can. Great food is affordable, and service is quick.

I am crazy about their warm tortilla chips and guacamole dip! My favorite is the spicy grilled chicken quesadilla and the tacos con asada (spelling?)steak tacos and they carry my favorite Jarritos flavors. Homey with no frills but it is good!

I'm always surprised by how many positive reviews there are for Mexican restaurants similar to Pancho's. We are from California, where great Mexican food is abundant, and by comparison, Pancho's tends to be bland and lacking the flavor profiles that are characteristic of great Mexican fare. We have actually visited the restaurant several times with friends and not found an... More
