I went early, so there wasn't a wait. Had the tacos al pastor. Delicious, and a great price. Not sure I would have waited an hour to eat here had there been a wait, since they are basically street tacos, but that doesnt take away from them being delicious.

Pancho's Takos is a small, open cafe with table spilling out onto the sidewalk. Although its very busy, the staff works hard to accommodate everyone, cheerfully and efficiently and the prices are very reasonable. Our group of 5 waited about 20 minutes for a table but we were entertained watching the cook continuously slicing the pork from the vertical rotisserie.... More

Hands down the best al pastor tacos I've ever had. The volcanes are also very good. My partner and I find ourselves wanting to eat there almost every night! They are always busy but definitely worth the wait.

In two weeks we went three times for El Pastor. I don't know what they changed about the El Pastor meat but it was delicious this trip. The meat had lots of good flavor and the pineapple really came through. Staff was very attentive and on top of things. Go and enjoy.

Located in Old Town, which is full of life, shopping, restaurants, and people. The outside of the restaurant is not much, a few tables inside and out. The waiter brought over a piece of paper and pencil to mark our choices. Tacos were supplied with an assortment of sauces and a mango relish tray. Watch out, the mango tray was... More

We were looking for some simple tacos and saw this 'hole in the wall' with a bunch of people standing around. We were told that there tacos were the best, give the waiter your name and wait patiently. Glad we did. We ate there twice during our trip.

The tacos el pastor are to die for. There is a bit of a wait because it's a small space, but it's soooooooo worth it! So glad I stumbled upon this little gem.

My wife is Mexican and said that the tacos were authentic and good, and she is hard to please. Very basic place, small, tables close together. Looks the the goal is to process as many customers as possible at a good price. If you're looking for street tacos and a beer, this is a good choice, but be prepared to... More

Great Al Pastor tacos for a reasonable price. We went twice -- no wait one time, a ten minute wait the other. Tried a few other things, but the Al Pastor tacos were the simplest and best.
