A very small place, but best tacos you will every eat. If you want a true Mexican experience, go here. There is usually a line up to get in.

I'm from Southern California, where we have Tacos el Gordo, those tacos are pretty good. Well lets just say that Pancho's Takos would put my go to place in SoCal to shame. We went here once, waited maybe 15 minutes for our food. Finger-licking good tacos, we couldn't get enough! Adobada is my go to, and I'm a picky eater... More

Taco stand right in the center of Zona Romantica, on Basillo Badilla. Try to sit outside, as you have a chance for a breeze. Hardest working guy ever standing next to the spinning meat, shaving it for all the hungry patrons. Great spot for authentic street tacos and very affordable. Be prepared for a wait as it gets very crowded.... More

My friend and I wanted to try some tacos and we made it to Panchos Tacos, yummy! The meat was so fresh, and the different salsas delicious! And to top it off beer was sold there! Sigh! Beer and tacos can't ever go wrong!

I can't find the words to appropriately express how awesome these tacos are. That's really all you need to know. Just go, go as quickly as you can. (P.S. It's crazy cheap and, as Americans, neither of us had any stomach issues afterward). It's REALLY busy, so get there early.

Cheap eats, quick service, good food. The tacos are authentic and everything was good (as expected) but not blown away. Fun to try since it is so highly rated, but we had just as good of a meal at Taco Revolucion without the lineup.

Best tacos I had in pv! The el pastor is amazing! On the meats and cheese menu get the chorizo! Ate here two days in a row because it was so delicious. Staff is friendly and will give good suggestions! Beware of the orange sauce, it's muy caliente! 😋
