A tasty visit

Enjoyed the table-side guac and varying entrees from the menu. Service was attentive, food was very tasty. They just need to learn that music isn't best loud during the dinner period and that visitors might want to hear local music versus Taylor Swift and Maroon 5!

We stopped into Pancho's for Margharitas which were very tasty. It has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. When you order drinks it comes with a wide variety of yummy local snacks (chips, salsa, papas, etc.) and they kept that coming as we had a couple drinks. The food looked good but we didn't have dinner here. . great spot... More

Very busy restaurant with good food, but wait for service slow. Arrived to wait for table for about 20mins which is fine, but then our order was not taken for at least another 20minutes.

We had to eat here twice. The fresh, table side made guacamole is incredible. So were the shrimp tacos and soft shell crab. The Mayan Coffee is an experience. They light the brandy on fire and pour it from dish to dish. So cool, and really good. Be sure to sit outside in the garden. A little pricy, but worth... More

We stopped here for a few drinks after a long day of sightseeing. The air condition was so pleasant. The bar tender spoke English. We had a wonderful conversation with hi. Their sangria with vodka was good. They served yes snacks that could have been a meal. Check out the garden in the rear. It is beautiful.

The place is very nicely decorated, but the food is not special. We had panchos (what's in a name) but it tasted like it was prepared long before we ordered it. The music is kind of weird and very loud especially considering the average age of the visitors which was above 55.

Margaritas and soft shell crab, what a combo but both are outstanding at Ponchos. Good happy hour with botanos, fun place to met expats at the bar.
