What a great place to enjoy good Mexican food. $6 combination plates is a deal. Fast friendly service. Parking lot is full for a reason!

I thought the food was decently seasoned but for the price the portions were small especially considering I am not a fan of huge portions. Service could have been much better but we will definitely return.

One of my first experiences eating at an authentic Mexican restaurant and I was not let down. The atmosphere and food were wonderful. The waiters are very friendly and your glass is always full!

We eat at Pancho's almost regularly and we've never been disappointed. The salsa that comes out with the chips is always so good and fresh! We've never had anything but good food and good service!

My coworkers and I like to sneak away for quick lunch here usually on the weekends. Service is usually super fast, but last time it was slow (perhaps due to multiple large parties). I always get the fish tacos, which are good. Coworkers enjoy their entrees as well. Nachos and salsa are excellent.

I love Mexican food and Pancho's is my #1 favorite. They are fast, friendly and delicious! Great prices, margaritas are good (and they have fun flavors- Peach, Mango.. etc).. I've never tried their seafood dishes, but Pollo Fundido is my favorite. Cheese sauce is yummy. I've been coming here for years and never disappoints! (I'm actually sitting here eating a... More

Intestinal fortitude has met its maker with this meal. As soon as I saw the words "monster wet burrito" listed on the menu...I knew there was no turning back. This commode punishing behemoth was causing me contractions before I was half way through...like a gambler walking into a casino praying the worst does not happen...I "crapped out" before the bill...

Food was fine. Service was fine. Clientele was not. I am not sure why this place is not attracting a better crowd of people.

I consider myself somewhat of an experienced Mexican food diner, and because of the other reviews we decided to eat here. It was one of the best meals we have had in awhile. We had a chimichanga, with chicken, rice, beans and guac salad. It was fresh, hot and full of flavor. The chips and salsa were above par as... More

Just enjoyed our first dining experience here, and it was the best Mexican we've had in a while. The chili relleno was terrific, and it was a great alternative to an hour and a half wait at any of the popular chain restaurants in town on a busy Saturday evening. We will definitely return again.
