This place was recommended by locals, and it had a basic menu of Mexican food. The food was good, served promptly, and the portions were large.

I was searching for a good place to eat in Brookings, and I was so glad that we found this gem of a Mexican restaurant. The staff is friendly and the food is authentic and a good value. I was especially impressed that they offer a meatless tamale (often difficult to find) that they make themselves, and this one was... More

Been wanting Mexican food. Wife and I live 20 miles south of Brookings but we go there almost weekly for over a year to shop or whatever. Decided to give Pancho's a try. From the outside it doesn't look that big but we were surprised at how big it actually is inside. They appear to have two inside seating areas... More

I've been dining here for about five years. I've noticed that the food quality has turned from good to bad during this period. I think the cooks cook the same old thing every day and they have lost the desire to turn out a quality product. The food now is boring and flavorless. Come on Pancho, get it together!

This restaurant seems to be the most popular Mexican restaurant in Brookings, but frankly, we find the food just ok. Not a lot of flavor, nothing special that we have found. In fact, I have bowed out of joining groups of friends for lunch when I hear this is the restaurant of choice. Waste of money -- I can cook... More

We are locals who eat here often. My sister and husband always share the steak and chicken fajitas. My husband and I try different items. My husband's recent favorite is the Pancho Burger...it is very reasonably priced. I sometimes get an entree and have a nice green salad substitute for the rice and beans.

We had Pancho's recommended by a waitress at another restaurant in Brookings. She was right. We have been "off" mexican food lately, but she was so glowing about it....and the food, the service, the place was spotless. It was a wonderful experience. T!

I liked the service and the prices, although the food was average, the service was good so I would return again

It's a cute place, but, the meat they used was poor quality. We could barely chew it. Everyones taste in Mexican food is different. We go to Gold Beach to eat Mexican at Playa Del Sol. Worth the drive.
