Driving by you would never know this place has the best Margarita's and excellent selection of freshly made Mexican food. Great place to have fun and kick back with a group of friends. Atmosphere very casual and the bell will always ring when sizzling fajitas as served. My favorite is Dave's Wings, sweet and spicy treat.

He recycles the oil, he has energy efficient lighting, and ac and many other things. The owner does a lot for the community. The interior has all be redone just recently. The new wood floors are beautiful.... More

My husband and I have been to Pancho Loco a couple of times, and done take out once. When eating in the food has not been great (ordered items such as steak, burritos, and shrimp). When doing take out we stuck with basic items such as enchiladas and tacos, and enjoyed the food much more. It seems like it might... More

Okay, I usually do not write negative reviews, especially about an independently owned restaurant in my local area. Also, I am the easiest eater on the planet to please. But this is arguably the worst Mexican food I've ever had, in my life, and I've been to Mexico three times. My margarita was basically undrinkable. Sorry, when Applebee's 5 miles... More

Wonderful service, terrific food and great atmosphere. Can't beat this restaurant for the best Mexican food around. Have had practically everything on the menu and nothing has been a disappointment. Service has always been above terrific and the atmosphere is just wonderful. Everything is homemade and delicious.

They ran out if shrimp , so no cocktail for me.The guacamole tasted packaged and queso canned. I mixed it with the salsa. I ordered the 2 item from lunch special. Nothing special there!
