Stayed in zona romantica and saw this place packed with people late one night and thought we must try it. This is hands down the best taco I've ever had in my life! El pastor is amazing and super cheap (11 pesos) but everything I had there was absolutely delicious. Beef with bacon was so flavorful, smokey and well seasoned.... More

My family decided to try this place after reading the reviews, we had our food to go. The al pastor tacos had a good flavor but the meat was dry(not sure if this was because we ate about 30mins after they had been cooked). I wish that they had more toppings available. The quesadillas were exactly as described in the... More

We saw this was #8 top restaurant and it became #1 for us. Went two times. The pork tacos were the best. To the poor guy who had to stand in front of the heat lamp shaving the pork-thank you!

The tacos here are the best I've ever eaten. My 10 year old son agrees wholeheartedly. On a scale of 1 to 10, for the tacos we both gave it a ten. Prices are very reasonable too.

Always great tacos or whatever you decide to order. Sit on the sidewalk-its really hot in the little sit down area by the kitchen. check off what you want on the paper menus, sit back and enjoy people watching right in the heart of old town.

I visit Puerto Vallarta every year and always make it a point to have dinner here at least once. The tacos are just the way they suppose to be, simple and delicious! I highly recommend it!

Hands down the best al pastor on planet Earth. This is a small restaurant with only a few tables so be prepared to wait---but trust me it's definitely worth it. I recommend the volcanoes, a toasted al pastor dish.

A great place to grab some great tacos. Its kind of small place but the food is worth it! Had some beef and cheese, and Mushroom and cheese tacos and I could have sat there the whole night and just order more, but alas my stomach could only stretch so much!

I have walked by this simple taco restaurant (maybe qualifies as a taco stand) with some seating inside and some on the street, many times over the years.There is almost always a line now due to their reputation...replacing the line that used to wait for tables at cafe de Olla (next door). It somehow looks better to me....I think the... More

We ate at this little store front place because a taxi driver dropped us off at a restaurant that was closed. A person eating at Pancho's saw our confusion and told us how good the food was. This is not the sit down restaurant that we were looking for, but the food was probably better! Everything is ala carte, no... More
