“Fun, festive, but average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Valet parking, which is great for this area. Festive, with plants, lights, bright colors. Pleasant,efficient waiters. A good place to bring children or a large group. Food was a bit pricey,
good but nothing special. Overall though, a pleasant dinner.

“local treat”

Good food and great atmosphere. Margaritas and taco Tuesdays are a favorite! We live local so it even easier.

“Pancho's is a great Mexican restaurant overall. Large portions. Not cheap.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

Pancho's Mexican restaurant had a great romantic older-style feel and decor. The food was in huge portions that the average person could definitely not finish. I ate the chicken chimichanga, which was excellent. Others in our party had seafood quesadilla and the steak salad. Those were great also. I also had an excellent margarita there. They have at least 20 kinds of tequila also. I feel they could reduce their portions, therefore their prices a bit as well. We were pleasantly surprised that if you paid your bill in cash, you get a 7% discount! Unheard of! The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Overall, we would go back with our cash!
