Friendly, Lovely, and Yummy

When I first walked in, I was immediately overtaken by the ambiance of the place. The walls are covered in murals; its a very homey environment. The staff were also very friendly and patient. Finally, the food was amazing. I had the chicken fajita quesadilla, and it was delicious. Very flavorful... read more

Everything in Pelancho's is a beautiful work of art. The chairs, tables, walls and even the ceilings- everything is painted with gorgeous images of flora and fauna. The staff is very friendly and well trained. The food is scrumptious and fairly inexpensive. And, to top everything off, if you are a student, you can get a 15% discount!

The service was awesome because the server was so sweet and the food came quickly. The portions were so large that I will have enough for dinner. The food was so good and the prices were almost too good to be true. The interior decor was amazing and added to the beautiful setting with different options for seating. I just... More

I can say that as soon as my group of five walked in, we welcomed at the door with smiles and gratitude. The ambiance reminded me of my home and I felt comfortable. The foot itself was affordable and delicious. On top on having the affordable specials, I was able to receive a student discount of 15%! I recommend visiting... More

We were ravenous by the time we reached Middlesboro, KY. Pelancho's seemed to be one of the few locally owned places on Rte 24. We had a great dinner with excellent service. The salsa was especially good. Very fresh with a good hit of heat. I loved the Chimichanga filled with chicken fajitas. Spectacular. Two of my favorites together. Only... More

The special of the day was fajitas which my husband had and I had a fajita salad. The servings were very large and the food was very good. We felt the price was reasonable for the food we had. The hotel staff recommended this restaurant and it was a good recommendation.

The service was great! The food was great and arrived very quickly. Refills were brought fast. My 12 year old son and I split the beef and chicken fajitas. The refried beans were particularly good and the seasoning on the meat was perfect. It was the best Mexican food I've had since I was in Mexico. I will definitely go... More

Let's face it how many ways can you fix retried beans? We had a family plate dinner, it had pork chunks, tough steak strips, chicken strips, nine shrimp and maybe a tablespoon of chirios and some veggies.a lot of food but so much grease. maybe as you get older tolerating grease is harder, but no matter what I eat there...
