After seeing the positive reviews, my wife and I decided to visit Pancho's on Sunday, January 18. The place was not busy. I ordered enchiladas covered in cheese sauce. The food was the blandest Mexican we've ever eaten. The refried beans appear grayish in color and had no taste. We were thoroughly disappointed. I've never had refried beans with less... More

Excellent and REAL Mexican food--not like the ersatz stuff that lots of other places serve. The only downside is the weak and too-sweet margaritas and the cheap wine. I'm not a beer drinker, unfortunately...There's also a great bakery in the same strip mall.

Attended lunch with a friend at Pancho's this past week and want people to know this is not chain type food, but authentic home cooked tasting delights. The presentations are not fanyc, not any trendy type items on the menu, but the taco (hard or soft shell) lunch ( shredded Chicken / Shredded beef / ground beef ) with rice... More

Pancho's is a true gem. My wife and I have been going there since we have been dating and have never had a bad experience. They have some of the best Mexican food around at a great value. Everything is reasonable priced at Pancho's compared to other Mexican restaurants in the area. Salsa & chips are served promptly as you... More

We went here based on past reviews and were not disappointed. A Mexican restaurant in a highly Mexican city would have to be good if the locals were the people filling the chairs. Not being Mexican, we were in the minority here but were made to feel welcome and received excellent advice on what to order. I am told this... More

Pancho's was very good. Visited on a Sunday after church. Families everywhere, and kids were super well-behaved. Was not noisy at all, and service was attentive. Very good atmosphere. When we were not familiar with something, the waitress asked if we wanted to try a sample. I've always loved places with that warmth and confidence in what they make. Had... More
