La Panchita remains my favorite Restaurant I have ever been to. I'm currently 28 years old and when I got my license at age 16, this was my first destination on my own since my parents only took me on special occasions. We've celebrated many Birthdays and anniversaries here. The atmosphere is festive and historic, the staff is friendly, the... More

If you want to eat Mexican food, then eat at this restaurant . The service is great. The margaritas are the best. We love the fajitas.

We can't get enough of this local Mexican restaurant. It is always a fun night at this establishment. The margaritas are amazing as are the fajitas. We always order guacamole and it is delicious. Cinco de Mayo was incredible. Mauricio the singer was charming and entertaining. Be sure to dine here on Thursdays for their margarita specials .

This is our favorite place to go for Mexican food on Long Island. It is authentic Mexican with amazing choices for combinations. The staff are quick and friendly. The drinks are great and they serve the best pina coladas!! The drinks are strong too :)

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....
