Tacos!

We stopped by this restaurant on a hunch... the smell of fresh food cooking was inviting. Most of the seats were taken and many people stopped in for take out orders while we were there. I enjoyed watching the cook work from the spit. We ordered the chicken tacos which came with onions... read more

My son-in-law wanted some good tacos al pastor (he's a native Mexican) so we read up and this seemed like a good place to go. We all ended up having the tacos al pastor. I originally wanted something else on the menu, but when we were told it would be a 20 minute wait I changed to tacos so I... More

My family and I love tacos. This is the best tacos we've had in PVR. The meat and condiments are fresh. It is very cheap. Been here 3x so far.

My first real taco experience and my my, was it ever delicious! I could've ate about 50 of them. I tried them all but tacos al pastor were my favourite. Great service and very friendly.

Good food. OPtions on a menu that you fil out. Always made fresh when you order ...Quick. Friendly. Used to be a tiny little hole in the wall. Now it has expanded to tables outside on the sidewalk and a long waiting line...but worth the wait. Casual, but definitely a Shirt and shoes , flip flops and tank top or... More

Okay, I'm picky. When we came to Puerta Vallarta my girlfriend and I tried a lot of restaurants and carts (by the way, some of the carts are amazing!), This is the best restaurant I ate at in PV. I'm not kidding. The sauces (salsas and salsa picantes) are to die for. The cheese. Oh my god. What put this... More

Pancho's has really good tacos al pastor! In any preparation, in an avocado, with potato, in quesadillas, volcanes, you name it. If it were just the al pastor meat, they would get 5 stars no problem, but to be honest, the other meats are mediocre at best, so hence the four star review. Good tacos!

For those of you who have sampled Al Pastor from various restaurants and have been disappointed with the taste and quality, this place will turn your taste buds around! The Al Pastor takos are what to have, but from watching the chef at work, looks like there are other tasty favorites on the menu, all cooked fresh. Yes the place... More

To start I live across the border from Tijuana. Tijuana is know for crime and tacos. This is no Tijuana tacos for that reason my review is a bit different from someone from Alaska. Salsas are good but tacos are ok. If you have a car go to Nuevo Vallarta and try Sonora al Sur. They have very tasty meat... More
