Best food ever had in Mexico.

I always eat at Pancho's and it is the best. I used to live in Guadalajara and these tacos are even better then there. I always stay at Los Arcos or Jasmin just so I am close to Pancho's Takos and all the other great places!!!! They do not open until 6 PM so ... line up like I do.... read more

Super place for inexpensive tacos that are delicious. Remember it is very small and it may take awhile to get a seat. You can get them to go. It is also open late, which is handy

We had been to PVR many times and for some reason had never been to Pancho's Takos. Do yourself a favor and go! The chorizo tacos are great! The staff is friendly and cost is cheap.

When searching for a recommended restaurant on Basilio Badillo, we came across this gem and tried it instead. We have tried tacos al pastor all over Mexico and these are the best. One of us had the smaller tostada and the other had the full size tortillas. Both were delightful. It is a tiny place but well worth the wait.

This place is literally an obsession!! The food is to DIE FOR!!! The prices are fantastic and it's open late. I could eat here a million times over and never get sick of it. Just great, fresh, Mexican 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, cilantro, and pico. The tacos were delicious... 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
