Another awesome dinner at Panchanga Grill. This is our favorite Mexican restaurant. Food is always consistently good. Our server was very attentive without being overly pushy. The couple we dined with love Mexican cuisine & were very impressed. Chips & salsa wonderful as usual. We will be back!!

We used to love it here..… now it's boring and the servers have all changed… they are not friendly … they're just Stepford wives now - we used to celebrate with all our events here but I think we will try Broad Neck Grill because I heard that that place is more like the OLD Pachanga! Maybe Pachanga has New... More

Low the chips and salsa that start off the meal. You can select the hot or mild and both are home made. I went with the Chesapeake enchiladas and thought they were great. The table also had the steak and chicken fajitas and the chicken quesadillas. All of the food was freshly made and tasted great. Total meal for three... More

We used to be Friday night regulars at Pachanga and usually had guests with us...won't be happening any longer since the new manager is on board and even the cups of water shrank! No one seems to know what they're doing, least of all him! We visited on a Thursday evening and he had all of his papers spread out... More

Appears to be under new management in 2014. Wait staff is not as friendly and the food portions are definitely smaller. The new manager must be thinking more about money in his pockets rather than happy customers. This used to be my go-to Mexican Restaurant, but I will be looking for a new one. I feel bad for all of... More

We've been eating here for years and the food has always been consistently excellent. It's our default restaurant because we can count on getting really good meals for very reasonable prices. The service has always been adequate and is usually quite good. (We normally come by during the week.) One big bonus--have dinner here on a warm evening and eat... More

The food is reliably good and reasonable, altho the prices have been creeping up over the past year. As other reviewers have noted, the service can vary. We usually go during the week, a little early in the evening and so don't have a problem. When we leave around 6:30 - 7ish there often is a line out the door.... More

It seemed as though the Saturday night dinner crowd took them by surprise. There seemed to be only 1 waitress working...with the hostess & the manager running around trying to help. Needless to say-it was a long meal with very little service. The chicken tacos were tasty & the sangria was good, though. We wanted dessert (the fried ice cream... More

Though I only give this place an average rating, I still love going here to eat. The food has been reliably good. The biggest downfall is the service. My husband and I typically order queso and chips or quesadilla and it always ends up arriving at the table with the meal which defeats the point of ordering it as an... More
