Family friendly Mexican restaurant

This is a good Mexican restaurant with well prepared food, and frequently some innovative specials. Very family friendly, with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.

'Should have known what to expect when we walked up to the dirty front doors. Worn and dated this isn't high ranking on my list of return visits. Food was mediocre, service however was surprisingly good.

Chips and salsa were very good. Black beans soup was good too! But the Fajita could have had better quality beef. It was tough like leather. Chicken and shrimp were good too! We expected better quality based on our experience here about an year ago. Service was excellent. Food came to our table very promptly. Was it too quick that... More

We decided to celebrate the end of winter just around the corner feel to this Friday and eat out for lunch. This restaurant has a consistent kitschy bright decor. Our group of six were warmly greeted and the service was excellent. The chips and salsa were very good and I enjoyed a Pancho's Revenge Margarita. Most ordered Taco Salads and... More

My husband and I along with our adult son eat lunch at Senor Pancho's on a regular basis. Today I had a bowl of spicy chili, very nicely seasoned. My husband and son each had a burrito platter. All food was pronounced delicious. Before the main meal is served there is an unending supply of crispy chips and a wonderful... More

Went last night with boyfriend and we usually like going there, but tonigjt was an exception. We sat at the bar and didn't get greeted right away, which we attributed to the bartender being busy. When we finally got greeted and got our drinks the bartender disappeared! We waited at least 5 minutes until a manager (?) came and got... More

For the past two Fridays , my husband and I have visited Senor Pancho's and were delighted each time! Last week there was a delicious Salmon special with guava and BBQ glaze and the presentation was picture perfect! The appetizer, Bruschetta Latina was a flavorful combo of chopped shrimp, tomato ,cheese and spices atop crispy baguettes... sooo good! This Friday... More

We've eaten at Senor Panchos over many years but had been disappointed with the food over the past few years - so much so we stayed away. We recently decided to give them another try (partially based on recent TA reviews). What a pleasant surprise - they've returned to their roots. Old favorites back on the menu and are as... More

We have eaten at Senor Pancho's in Southbury a few times and for the most part we've really enjoyed it. Our kids love going there and it's definitely kid-friendly. There are lots of choices on the menu and the drinks are delicious (try the mango margarita.) While the service can be slow when the restaurant is busy, we found the... More

We have tried Senor Pancho's 3 or 4 times and have walked away each time disappointed. The chips and salsa are some of the best I've ever had but no matter what we have ordered for the main meal, it has been a disappointment. We don't taste the "fresh" flavors or authentic flavors that we have had so many times... More
