My husband and I visited Pancho's on our recent visit to PVR. All we can say is AMAZING tacos and quesadillas. The El Pastor tacos are an absolute "must have!" The meat is carved right off a spinning skewer and is the most flavorful pork we've ever had. Prices are cheap, cheap, cheap. Out of all the taco stands we... More

Try the Taco Stands that are... More

You must try the mango margarita. One will knock you out. I saw them make it and its free pour. Delicious, potent and one of the best drinks I had on the trip. Tacos are cheap and delicious. Yes, its busy but worth the wait.

Cannot visit Vallarta and not eat here. Our favorite place to eat. We actually arrive at 5:30 sit and wait for them to open. If you snooze you wait in line for ever! But if you have to wait, its worth waiting for. Watching the food prepared and served is a show in itself. The staff is just great. There... More

My husband and I've been to this street-side Taco Stand numerous times. The tacos al pastor are always delicious as is the agua de jamaica. The salsas are wonderful and a real addition to the tacos. The tables are all very close together so you end up talking to people nearby, which is a bonus as far as I'm concerned.... More

It's true the tacos are delicious. The salsas are homemade too. It's inexpensive, and all of the staff seem to be having a great time. The ideal combination.

This place is tiny. You will wait on a line but it goes fast and is well worth it! Great guacamole. Not open on Tuesdays.

We live in PV for 10 months a year and we cannot get into this restaurant until june or july. The reason is I don't want to stand in line for an hour to get a seat. It is a very popular place for many reasons the best tacos pastor in town, cheap prices and fast service. We would go... More

This place is awesome! Try the tacos al pastor, you can order as many as you want. My advice is to start off with 3 or 4 and then you can continue ordering more until you're full! These tacos are so yummy and flavourful, accompanied with 4 types of sauces from mild to habanero hot to top your tacos! Food... More
