Still my favorite Mexican in Winston.

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.

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

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

This is the worst mexican restaurant I have ever been to in my life. Everything is covered with cheese sauce, read the menu. The cheese sauce is watered down beyond what most restaurants do. Their enchilada sauce is worse than what you can buy at the grocery store and we make much better at home. The waitress we had was... More

One of my favorite spots for Mexican in WS. Excellent fajitas and salads. Service can be inconsistent, though: attentive to ignored! This used to be an Italian restaurant with hand painted murals of Italian scenes. When they converted it to a Mexican restaurant, they kept the original murals but airbrushed crude paintings of Mexican images on top of the Italian... More

You can't go wrong with a good Mexican restaurant. This place has a wide variety on the menu and very well priced in my opinion. Like any good mex place, I expect hot food on hot plates served quick for a sit down place. Check. Next I want the food to taste very good. Check check. Finally I want good... More

We ordered two the daily lunch specials. I had the fish tacos, my husband ordered the Speedy Gonzales. Both came with refried beans and rice. Our drinks were iced tea. The atmosphere was excellent. The servers were really friendly and helpful (real Mexicans but they spoke English very well). The food was among the best Mexican food we have ever... More
