Our family of 5 waited almost an hour for a seat but it was worth the wait. We all shared the special tacos of the day and a few drinks. Very tasty and fun staff.

We have walked by this place for years always a long long, we finally walked by the wait was only 20 minutes so we put in our name and walked around for a few minutes. This place is small and tables are close, large barbecue spit with marinated pork with a pineapple on top. 143 lbs of pork. They have... More

We love this little place. Yes, you will have to wait for a table and you will be terribly crowded when you do sit down but you'll meet interesting folks there. The tacos al pastor carved from the pork leg are unbeatable. They come with four sauces which vary from mild to fiery and are superb Perhaps the best thing:... More

There are times when you just need a few tacos al pastor with some roasted scallions and a cold beer. When that time arrives there is no better place than Panchos tacos. A tradition in PV for those of us that like a late taco after a night of partying. Try them all but don't miss the Tacos al pastor... More

Although the wait can range from 20-30min on busy nights, and seating can get a bit crowded, my family and I believe it is all worth it! The tacos, quesadillas, cebollitas, and the fresh guacamole are our favorites! This is our go to spot, we love the food, the atmosphere, and the service. While on vacation we always make sure...

Yeah like everyone says the food is very good. But not to wait in line for 20-30 minutes. You can walk in about any direction and find another place that has very good food and not a line. Don't let the front of a place or lack of a line fool you. Many places are just as good or better... More

EAT HERE. If you like tacos, if you like Mexican food, eat here. My partner and I ate here and then bought more food to go and eat at our airbnb. During dinner time there could be a small wait, but its worth it. I also recommend the bistec encebollado tacos (omg get it twice), and the fondue with chorizo... More
