Fabulous, inexpensive, super fast and friendly staff. Wide offer of traditional mexican food, unfortunatelly no fish. Big portions, one cannot finish it! Real charcoal grill!

This small restaurant has big flavors, friendly staff and at times long lines. But that is because of the wonderful wood. You can carry out and enjoy anywhere.

I currently reside in Denver where hipster chefs are all trying to recreate a cool delicious taqueria experience with the $4 tacos & hand crafted cocktails. What all of these places lack is what Pancho's has in spades: soul. The husband & I ate our faces off for $14 and quite possibly had a spiritual experience. I'm not kidding. The... More

Stumbled across this little gem in the Zona Romantica, and noticed the crowds waiting for tables at this tiny sidewalk restaurant. The menu is simple, but the quality of the food is out of this world! We each ordered four street tacos, for 60 pesos each ($3.25 US). They were incredible! I ordered Queso Fundido (melted gouda cheese with Chorizo)... More

I've been going to PV for many years and usually eat at places on the beach. Found Pancho's Takos last year and this year went back with other family members and had things other then tacos. It got to be my favorite place in PV. Must have gone there 5 times in a few weeks. Tacos are great, the mushrooms... More

We never miss this spot and the food and service is exceptional and we always feel like they have not added our bill correctly as it is so ridiculously low. A not to be missed, great place.

This is bare bones - but always a wait! We passed several times and mostly locals were waiting to eat there. Great service and the best tacos I have ever had!

Pancho's has become quite a legend over the years, and it's not difficult to see why ! High quality food in a low key manner is a very successful combination. From their myriad of tacos to their incredible bulb onions this is by far an experience you don't want to miss if you come to PV.

This was our 2nd trip to Puerto Vallarta and we have eaten at Ponchos last year and were so happy that they have not changed a thing. The Tacos, Burritos are Awesome and so Reasonable for the amount of food that you get. The Service is Fantastic and the Staff have always a Great Attitude and are so Welcoming. We... More

I eat at Pancho's Takos several times whenever I'm in Puerto Vallarta. Their tacos are about 10 pesos ($0.60 US) and served with an assortment of tasty salsas. Menus are in both Spanish and English and you place your order by circling what you want on a little menu pad. The staff are always very friendly and attentive. The best... More
