We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday night. They weren't serving food yet, but some tourists had taken the liberty of grabbing some tables and chairs to sit and wait for the magic. So, we took a tip from them, grabbed a table and chairs and waited. Over a half hour later, and the al pastor roll was set up... More

Ok, I know these are just tacos, but we love this place. It's the perfect place to stop by and grab a few tacos after a night of drinking, it's a great place to have dinner....it's just great! Nice place to people watch too and the margaritas are good!

This is a busy little spot with a few outdoor tables (snag one of them if you can because it's HOT inside). The staff are frantic and fun, and the tacos are amazing, especially the Al pastor. they have an extensive menu for a taco stand, and we have tried many of the options including the fondue, which mashed potato,...

We came here for dinner the first night we were in town and then again at least four additional times, one for dinner and couple of times for a late night snack! SO good! My favorite is the el pastore tacos. They're very busy between 6-9 pm averaging about a 20 minute wait for four people.

When we just want to go for a quick and inexpensive dinner out this is our go to place. The best Tacos Al Pastor I have ever had!! Our friends that visit with us during the season all want us to take them there. Great little restaurant, but get there early or you will have to wait, but well worth... More

Right on the sidewalk very small(15tables?) but lots of fun. Food just like the pictures on the site. Nothing fancy. But good flavour. Limited menu and no seafood but loved the mushroom and cheese tacos

I have never had a bad meal in PV, until now. After reading all the reviews, and Rick Bayliss' , world renowned chef, comments, I was anticipating a great taco al pastor. Sadly my food selections resulted in the worst meal I have ever experienced in PV. I had a better taco al pastor at a restaurant in Arlington Hts.... More

You gotta have the taco Pastor which is a taco with pulled pork, cheese and a little piece of pinapple and the put the tortilla on the hot plate with a little oïl to crisp it a... More

Always worth the wait (usually not more than 20 mins most times much less) and the surprised look from the passers on the street that the line up is for Pancho's! Awesome Al Pastor takos and worthy quesadillas - a must stop on your list every year...

I admire and respect strong women, and the owner of Panchos is a dynamo, doing lots of the grunt work at Panchos. Two can have a hibiscus drink called Jamaica and two quesidillas each for 140 pesos. This is a busy, busy place and often there's a line up, but it's well worth the wait. It's crowded, very bright and... More
