Restaurant is open at 5-6 and the lines begin, but there is a reason. Both locals and tourists eat here. You can eat til you bust for less than 10usd. I like the pork quesadillas as the meat is carved while the big hunk of meat is spinning. You can get grilled onions or peppers to add to your experience.... More

Wow, this place was amazing. Don't expect a great ambiance. But it well makes up for it with the food. The fresh quac was wonderful and the tacos...I could have eaten them everyday.

We went here because it was recomended by friends, you have to get here early to get a seat, lined up later at night, I don't know what the big deal here was, the tacos were average at best, not worth the wait, it is small and very hot, worth trying at least once to say you have.

Excellent authentic tacos al pastor!! We had 4 very large (strawberry and mango) margaritas and 12 tacos for 424 pesos (about 30$US or $35CDN). Great value for great food. We went there twice in one week we loved it so much.

Easily the best tacos al pastor I have had. You may have to wait for a table but it is worth it. I heard two other parties say they have been eating these tacos for 15 to 20 years and I can see why. Hard to beat the price and service is great too.

We spent five nights in the Zona Romantica and twice we visited this little taqueria, yes it's very small and crowded but the food is amazing. We tried the tacos and the tostadas (volcanes) very simple to order just mark down what you like and you are good to go. Careful with the salsas some look harmless but are really... More

First keep in mind this is a very casual place. There are a few tables on the sidewalk and a few inside--it is very small. We love, love love the street tacos here. The server brings a paper that lists what kinds of tacos and other things they serve. You just write how many of each item you want for... More

We have been coming to PV for 7 years in a row but have never tried Pancho's until last week. We loved it so much that we ate at Pancho's 3 times during our 9 day visit. We always ordered the al pastore with cheese tacos and they are outstanding. They are open 7 days a week starting at 6PM... More

Very popular place with very tight indoor and outdoor seating, but the tacos are delicious and inexpensive Just check off what you want and how many, and soon you'll be enjoying delicious tacos. They also offer grilled onions and other veggies. If you are hungry and want a good value, you can't go wrong here, as long as you are... More
