This restaurant is closed up shop. Seems too bad, as there was lots of good reviews on this place. Not sure if its closed for good or what.

Pancho's has indeed closed down. The property was sold and has been leased out to new tenants. A new Mexican restaurant will be open this November 2014, please rate them on their own site. The restaurant will be called El Chivo Cantina. Thank you! More

We checked Pancho's for lunch/dinner a couple of times while in Nosara. It never seemed to be open. It was either closed for the week or has gone out of business. We couldn't tell.

We had fresh fish tacos and portobello fajitas. Highly recommend. Also excellent English. Some other restaurants our orders were confused between our limited Spanish and their limited English. There are many healthy options which is important to us

We were back in Pelada this May, and had such a good experience at Pancho's the year before, we couldn't wait to go back. We stopped in for lunch our first day back, only to find Mandi was no longer working there. We didn't stay, as the place appeared not to be open. No one was there eating, which gave... More

Don't miss the beef wet burrito; you won't feel hungry again for many hours. Mandy will give you a nice welcome.

This is one of our favorite places..Came last year just after Mandy had taken over and things were good then but she's definitely gotten her act together over the last year. Chicken Enchiladas were yummy, beer was cold and the company of the black lab Digger, made the meal even better!

We stopped at Panchos based on the reviews. The waitress was awesome and we took her advice and ordered the chicken enchiladas and fish tacos - both were really good. We will go again for sure!

If you want to get out of Guiones for dinner try out Pancho's. The food was very tasty and the woman running the place was super attentive. Good margies and priced affordably.
