Great Mexican food

I don't know why this restaurant isn't 'standing room only'. They have the best Mexican food on Long Island. The service is great and the staff is very friendly. We still miss the La Panchita in Levittown, but it is worth the drive to Smithtown

I last wrote about this restaurant in September of 2013 although I have visited it many times since. This continues to be my families favorite. It is always clean and the food and Margarita's are delicious. I have noticed a change in staff and and they are as professional as the others. The chips and Salsa are delicious and plentiful....

The staff is very friendly, the food takes a little long too cook.. Which i don't mind Bc the quality of food is... More

We have been eating at La Panchita for a few years now and it has never disappointed. The food and service is always reliably good and the prices are reasonable. The Sangria is also very good. While the place could use some updating interior design wise..it remains a solid place to eat when in the mood for Mexican food.

This is a spectacular restaurant and my family and I keep coming back. We come for birthdays, anniversaries and a few times in between for no reason at all. We have also brought others here and they have always loved the experience. The food has always been delicious and this last time it was even better than in the past.... More

Unusual salsa, almost pickled tasting, but it was still good. We all enjoyed our food, the service was friendly and prompt. Not too much atmosphere to the restaurant itself, but don't let that deter you.

Being on Long Island 2 months a year has it's advantages, especially when we look forward to dining at La Panchita. We have been there dozens of times over the past twenty years, and it is consistently excellent. The biggest problem I have is deciding what dish to try, but I usually end up with Pollo & Camarones Costa Del... More
