Good food, fast service, and cheap

I ordered the steak quesadilla and it was good. The quesadilla was loaded with lots of steak. The cheese dip is cheap for a large bowl. Overall good experience with fast service

My husband, myself, and my son came here for dinner and we were not disappointed. It is your traditional Mexican restaurant with and expanded seafood menu. We got a lot of good food and our bill was only $35. Seriously guys we got cheese dip, a margarita, a huge beer, chimichanga dinner, fish tacos dinner, and 2 chicken soft tacos... More

The food here is great! Some of my favorites are the Quesadilla Fajita Tejano - it is a stuffed tortilla with peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms and cheese. I get mine with chicken. It is always wonderful. I also recommend the Mexican Pizza. It contains beef, chicken peppers, onions, beans, shredded cheese and mushrooms. All stuffed between two tortillas. I always... More

First, many of the reviews are apparently referring to other restaurants by their references to locations and name. This restaurant is Pancho Villa's on Stratford Rd. I am from Tucson AZ which has some of the best Mexican food in the US (not "Tex-Mex"). Pancho Villa's food was equal to any of the better Mexican restaurants in Tucson. I am... More

Were in town visiting someone at the hospital and stopped here because it was close by. We ordered two lunch specials. My friend thought her beef chimichanga was under seasoned and my shrimp dish was OK - slightly overcooked frozen shrimp. Nothing bad about our meal, but nothing to set this restaurant apart from a typical shopping center Mexican choice.... More

If you come here you haaaaaaaave to get their cheese dip it's amazing!!! It's got the perfect blend of spice mixed into it. If you love chicken and cheese then I suggest their pollo fundido with some horchata. The flavors are too great.

This is a great Mexican place. Food is always fresh and consistent. The service staff cater's to your needs. I must have been there more than 10 times and never disappointed in the food or service. Fish with Diablo sauce is to die for if you like spicy food. Everything on the menu is just great. This is a must... More

Our office moved across town and is now right beside Mi Pueblo. I would drive over to Stratford any day to choose Pancho's instead. The food, choices, and prices are just so much better in my opinion.

I was very disappointed in this restaurant. The inside is not inviting, the staff was rude and the food was terrible! This is not what I had expected from the outside. The cheese did not taste right. It tasted as if they had added water to it or something. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. Too many other... More
