Chicken Fajitas! Good!

Took a recommendation from our hotel. All you could eat fajitas for$9.99! They were good! Lemonade was good- no beer- dry county!

Went to pick up an order to go, stood there 15 mins while employees looked at me like a exhibit of animals. Saw one employee sitting at a table and asked if he was on break, he smiled and said yes so I stood, more wait staff walking by. The employee that was sitting at a table got by and... More

I trusted the reviews online about this place while in the area on a business trip. I ordered the Pelancho's Dip & the Pelancho's fajiitas, both to go. While the Pelancho's Dip had good flavor, it was very watery, not thick like I would've expected. When I got to my hotel, I realized they didn't even bother to put any... More

The food was good the 3 times we ate there. The server messed up on order 2 out of the 3 times we were there and it took a little longer to get our food than usual.

I can't imagine what folks see in this place. I went there with some colleagues for dinner. It's filthy on the inside and if I had been by myself I would have turned around the minute I walked inside. The entrance smells like a public restroom. The floors are just filthy and the tables are not much better. The food... More

We just ate there tonight July 18, 2015. We had a large party of 12 and called ahead as they do take reservations. They had a table ready and waiting for us. Food was good. Average Mexican type fare. Very good selection. Nothing outstanding but good. Property seemed clean and orderly. Bathrooms had a smell but could be the humid... 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
