The line is worth it. I mean it! Try the mushroom quesadilla, you won't be sorry. The prices are only outdone by the flavor and the amazing service.

Stopped by Saturday evening for dinner. Our first visit back to Pancho's in about 18 months. Still as good as I remember. They have implemented some social distancing (before you were packed nut to butt, but now you have some room to move around. The...food was still excellent and the price point is outstanding.More

Delicious and affordable After finding this location on Yelp we decided to give them a try. They were so delicious we went twice during our vacation

We went to this place based on many recommendations. It definitely did not disappoint! The el pastor is so fresh and amazing. Huge portions of meat for a street taco and super cheap. Less than a buck with the exchange rate. I highly recommend the...pineapple margaritas. Fresh made and delicious. This place is cash only and has a line so get there early.More

I've always seen long lines here and heard good things. One day happened to pass by as it was opening and the line hadn't started to develop. Jumped and the chance and glad we did - it lives up to its reputation. Every dish that...each of us had (plus a few more!) was perfect and delicious.More

We normally happen to go by this place when it's closed, so the other night when we were in the neighborhood and they were open we jumped in line (from what I hear, there normally is one). We tried to keep it simple by getting...our tacos to go. It didn't take long and we were off with our bag of goodies. We don't mind eating on the side of the street, so we found a bench and dug in. They give you onions and cilantro and sauces on the side. These were some amazing tacos, let me tell you. Maybe the best in town and for sure some of the best I've had. Give them a try.More

El Pastor tacos were amazing. Great food, service and prices. True local Mexican cuisine with low wait times

This small place on Basilio Badillo continues to be our favorite place for tacos. The flavor of their Tacos al Pastor is exceptional as are the grilled onions. Well worth the wait in line. Friendly and attentive staff. Love this place. Be sure to give...it a try on yor next visit. Stay safe .More

Great food and lot's of it at great prices (about US$8 to $10 for my wife and I). The staff was very friendly and remembered us each time we came back (twice pulling us out of the long lines waiting and given 'our' special little...table inside). Many of the other restaurants in the Zona Romantica were more expensive and nearly empty while Pancho's Takos was booming with taxis unloading tourists into the line that sometimes stretching all the way to the corner! Service is very fast so the wait was never very long though, despite the obvious popularity.More

During this year of COVID, when all restaurants are fighting to stay in business and going out of their way to make it easy for their customers to enjoy the food - Pancho's Takos missed the memo. The manager is outright RUDE and UNPROFESSIONAL. She...wants everyone to dine at the restaurant where there is no regard for social distance and some patrons are not even wearing masks. If you order a take-out, you need to wait in a long line with other customers (again, no social distance) and only after all the customers in the line ahead of you are seated (after an hour long wait) - they "MAY" take your order for a take out. I mean, I love the food from Panchos Tacos which is why I keep coming here over the years during my visit to PV, but is it worth this rude treatment even when you give a generous tip with your take-out order?!More

There is street parking but most people walk to it. Really there is minimal need for a car in PV at all.
