The food is very good and a good value for your money. On our last visit my wife and I both ordered chimichangas and they were excellent. The frozen margaritas are very good and potent. We both felt the servers could have been a bit more attentive but we certainly weren't ignored. Overall I feel this is a great restaurant... More

Good Margarita, but no draft Mexican beer. The menu describes chile relleno as grilled, but it's breaded. The refried beans are good, but the rice is over-cooked. My spouse enjoyed carnitas.

Tried this place with my family on Mother's Day. Was seated immediately and had a margarita in hand within 5 minutes. The margarita was one of the best I've had at a Mexican restaurant. The meals were large and tasted great. This is one of the better Mexican restaurants that I've eaten at. Would not be afraid to eat here... More

By far it's the best Mexican food in town. Nice proportions and food is fresh and tasty. It is a small restaurant so usually you have to wait a few minutes for a table and at times they are short staffed but the food is worth the wait. It's not as good as food in Mexico but close.

We eat at La Pachanga about once a month. Service is fast and friendly, margaritas are good, chips are plentiful, and the food is good and reasonably priced.

OK, so this was our first time to dine here, last minute plans and happy to report we were not disappointed. It was a Friday night and we were seated immediately. And no the place was not empty, a nice crowd of people eating away and drinking Margarita's. They looked tempting so we tried a Mango/Peach margarita, David our waiter... More
