The food is average, not great and not too bad... it is slightly expensive but the ambience is very interesting with stories of Che, history of indigenas, paintings, poems, etc... one can walk around the restaurant while waiting to be served..the service was good and the people friendly... they don't accept credit cards..

This is a small restaurant and we was greeted by a friendly man. He promptly took our orders and we admired the interesting decor of photos and pictures. We thoroughly enjoyed our beef and chicken fajitas. The portions were huge and very tasty. Recommend this place

My girlfriend and I were excited about going to this place, because we love Mexican food and liked the atmosphere of Panchos. The interior is wonderful, with lots of photos, paintings and jokes on the walls. The service is also friendly and quick. That being said, the food was a huge disappointment. I lived in Southern California for seven years... More

We have eaten here as a family almost every time we come to Banos. We just stumbled on it one evening and LOVED it. It is a very interesting atmosphere with many things on the wall to look at and feels very homey. The portions have been fine for us-especially for a smaller evening meal. The service is always wonderful... More

We ate here recently on our trip to Banos and weren't disappointed.

Pancho Villa is only a few minutes walk from downtown Banos. It is a very quiet and beautiful place. There is great food for vegetarians and meat eaters. The service is fast they are happy to serve everyone. You have to try the margarias, they are somewhat expensive but worth it.
