We had the best Al Pastor and chorizo tacos at Panchos Takos The beef tacos was ok, so don't waste your time eating them. If you are going during high season , be prepared to wait for a table He has very few tables inside and out We will definitely be going there every time we are in Puerta Vallarta... More

great prices for the BEST taco's If you want the real thing this is the place. Forget the touristy restaurants on the beach, head to Pancho's. Best taco's, great service, great prices and great atmosphere on the porch.

You often have to wait a bit on the sidewalk before eating however it is worth the short wait. All the food is great but after several visits, I enjoy the pastor tacos the best. The atmosphere is very very cozy

We were in Puerto Vallarta for the entire month of July. We didn't discover Panchos Takos until we had been there for 2 weeks. My husband and I have spent a lot of time in Mexico- we lived there for a couple of years- and are very weary about restaurants who claim to have authentic tacos. Panchos however exceeded our...

Stayed in zona romantica and saw this place packed with people late one night and thought we must try it. This is hands down the best taco I've ever had in my life! El pastor is amazing and super cheap (11 pesos) but everything I had there was absolutely delicious. Beef with bacon was so flavorful, smokey and well seasoned.... More

My family decided to try this place after reading the reviews, we had our food to go. The al pastor tacos had a good flavor but the meat was dry(not sure if this was because we ate about 30mins after they had been cooked). I wish that they had more toppings available. The quesadillas were exactly as described in the... More

We saw this was #8 top restaurant and it became #1 for us. Went two times. The pork tacos were the best. To the poor guy who had to stand in front of the heat lamp shaving the pork-thank you!

The tacos here are the best I've ever eaten. My 10 year old son agrees wholeheartedly. On a scale of 1 to 10, for the tacos we both gave it a ten. Prices are very reasonable too.

Always great tacos or whatever you decide to order. Sit on the sidewalk-its really hot in the little sit down area by the kitchen. check off what you want on the paper menus, sit back and enjoy people watching right in the heart of old town.

I visit Puerto Vallarta every year and always make it a point to have dinner here at least once. The tacos are just the way they suppose to be, simple and delicious! I highly recommend it!
