Ordered chicken fajita nachos, chicken wasn't cooked done and shortly after taking one bite I noticed the raw meat, they took it back and must have put it in the microwave because you could tell it was the same plate of food. Whatever spice they put on it made me sick, the bathroom and I became close friends for two... More

We stopped here for lunch and we were VERY impressed with the food and the pricing. The salsa is YUMMY. $7.99 dinner plates are very filling. Took some home for lunch!

Food was excellent - very authentic. Chips and salsa were brought out before our food. Server was slow at taking our order and even slower at bringing our check to the table. We saw him numerous times on his cell phone texting and even taking personal phone calls. He walked past our table several times when we were waiting on... More

The best Mexican food ever. We haven't at the other place in town in over 3 years. The food is always hot, salsa is just perfect. The staff does an awesome job everytime. I can't say enough great things about this place.

We entered the restaurant at about 9:10 p.m. and left at about 9:33 p.m. The server brought a small carafe of salsa, small dishes & chips. We ate an entree each, me three chicken tacos & and he a combo plate. Everything was good. The salsa is nicely spiced. The tacos were hard-shelled tortillas filled with shredded chicken, cheese &...

We stopped here for what I call linner (lunch/dinner). They have a lunch menu, even on Saturdays. Food was excellent and the prices were just as good. It was my mom's birthday and they came out and sang to her and gave her a dessert. Would definitely go back!

We have eaten here on multiple occasions and continue to be impressed. The food is always delicious and the service excellent. I also love that when you order their fajitas, you actually get a full plate of meat. If you like dip, give the Pelancho's dip a try and you won't be disappointed.

We were expecting, on Easter Sunday night , to find nothing but fast food places open. We were pleasantly surprised to find this place open and even more pleasantly surprised by the food. The chicken burrito and enchiladas were very good with plenty of shredded white meat and the house salad, $2, was a real deal.

Pelanchos always has daily specials but my favorite is the Arroz Con Pollo on Tuesday. It's a great meal and very reasonably priced. Come by and give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
