Tummy and wallet loved Pancho's!!

$0.75 Al Pastor takos are must try, whether you think you will like it or not. If you don't like it, that's just $0.75, but if you do like it and want to order the second round, very likely there will be a long wait. Two of us arrived at 6pm sharp so there was no wait. By 6:30pm, this... read more

Pancho's Takos serves the most tasty tacos Al Pastor! We make this a "must eat" stop, every time we come to PVR. Our grandson wants to go back every evening. Our favorites are the tacos al pastor (order 3 or 4) and the quesadilla with the same, al pastor ingredients.

Like many of the reviewers, this is the taco stand to hit in PV. The el Pastor tacos are so cheap at 12 pesos, you can't stop at just two or three. It is the whole roast that has been marinated and cooked so you can't avoid the smell drawing you in. The three sauces and the pineapple condiment (hot)... More

Pancho's was a stones throw from our hotel, so we tried it the first night of our stay. It was amazing! We ended up eating there several more times, which says a lot because Vallarta has so many great restaurants. Delicious authentic tacos at a very reasonable price. Service was exceptional, a must try!

We ate at Pancho's Takos on our last night in Puerto Vallarta. It was a hit with the whole family because they have so much to choose from. We are from New Mexico, so tacos like these are comfort food for us. Basically, you just sit down and ask for the al pastor (pork) tacos and they'll keep them coming... More

Sometimes our intentions for a restaurant dinner fall apart....too much fun elsewhere, I guess. Pancho's Takos is on our beaten path anyway, so we usually sit outside and people watch and enjoy great tacos.
