On the way home from a l9nesimedove drive, we decided to stop halfway for some quick food. Across from the court house in Danbury, we were drawn into Panchos Tacos by the authentic Mexican atmosphere. At first we were extremely dissapointed with the chips and salsa. It wasn't as good as we are accustomed to. Although we wdre pleased with... More

My husband and I had lunch here today. The restaurant was clean, the service was good, and the food was plentiful and yummy. I'm looking forward to going back.

Not a sophisticated, polished place on the oustide, but the food is really very good. Go for the food. The staff is attentive and helpful. The portions are ample, and dinner can be had at a reasonable price (dinner for two, drinks, a shared dessert and tips for less than $40 )

Sorry to say I am not impressed. I ordered take out and it did arrive in a reasonable amount of time. Atmosphere is like a diner and the music was way to loud. I was glad we were getting take out as I would not have enjoyed the atmosphere unless it was a Friday night and I had had a... More

I have eaten here a few times and have never had a bad experience. The Chicken Mole Poblano is excellent. The staff is friendly and their Margarita/Sangria are huge and strong! A little pricey compared to other places, but it is well worth the money. Can't wait to go back!

Being from Southern California, where you can get great Mexican food, we thought we were doomed to never being able to find a good Mexican restaurant in New England. Panchos makes us feel like we are back home. Delicious food.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food, this is the place. If you haven't had 'authentic Mexican' (taco bell and panchos do not count) it is very different. I have been to Mexico several times and the food is very close to this. However, the chicken is kind of weird. I had chicken tacos last night and they were... More

I went here the first time recently with a friend. I ordered a grilled beefsteak taco, along with a plate of rice and beans and a corona. The salsa was fresh, but we had to add hot sauce to it since it was very bland...and I don't like hot things, just flavorful. My taco arrived with simply cut up steak... More

Went for dinner with kids. Atmosphere was typical Mexican restaurant which was a bit disappointing. Would have preferred something more authentic. Told first thing by our server that they were out of salsa. We were so disappointed! How does a Mexican restaurant run out of salsa! We ordered guacamole which was average. After ordering two tamales one chicken one pork... More

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food in greater Danbury this is one of the best. It isn't world class but the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Can't ask for much more than that.
