We come here because it's close to home and has great food. We have kept coming over the years due to the great service and the spinach enchiladas.

Enjoyed delicious margaritas with the complimentary yummy chips and salsa. They have crab cake enchiladas-Puerta Vallarta Enchiladas among the rest of their consistent good ole Mexican menu. Service was superb. I only wish they had queso dip. Convenient parking next door

I have been going to Pancho's for years. Their food is delicious, especially their salsa, their service is great, and the atmosphere is cute and relaxed. Please note that when ordering enchiladas, enchilada sauce has to be requested because they put salsa on them.
