Pleasantly surprised. Good food for your money. I had the carnitas bowl w/rice and black beans, queso, roasted corn, sour cream & guacamole. Excellent! My husband had a carnitas burrito with freshly made tortilla (made when you order), rice, pinto beans, pico de gallo, queso. He said it was extremely good. Careful with the extras (queso, sour cream, guacamole), they... More

One of my favorite places to visit for lunch. Restaurant is always clean. Great tasting fresh food. The carnitas meat is really good.

This restaurant is very similar to the Chipolte restaurant chain. Place your order, select the ingredients you want in it, then they slap it together and you are ready to eat. I would rate the food and service here as average. Not bad by any means, just nothing really special either.

My wife and I agreed, it wasn't bad. It just wasn't particularly good. Pretty much no flavor apart from the queso. Absolutely nothing stood out that makes me want to go back.

We were passing through and had to stop here as soon as I found out about it. We used to have one in Omaha and I was so bummed that it closed. I really love their blue corn chips and queso, it's the best. And the homemade tortillas make this place a winner. We had a good meal here and... More

This has become a new obsession. There steak / chicken burrito bowls are so wonderful. Everything is fresh & flavorful. Prices are reasonable. But the warm tortillas pressed & grilled in front of you are to die for. Very friendly service. Highly recommend for a fast food restaurant.

DH and I are making a point of trying places we've not visited. We were not impressed with Panchero's. It's a Chipotle wanna-be. My bowl had such a large portion of beans it overpowered the meal, and the only flavor was in the sauce. DH's burrito was okay, but again there was a heavy hand with the beans. Also, the... More

First of all, the employees need to be better trained. They speak so quickly when taking orders (because they say the same thing over and over again all day long) that you can't understand what they're saying. I had to ask this kid to repeat himself 4-5 times and speak slower and more clearly. I ordered the 2 tacos... which... More

First of all, I'm not crazy about Mexican food -- too much cheese, too much tomato sauce, etc., etc. But this isn't that at all. This is a go-thru-the-line and build-you own (tell them how to do it) burritos, tacos, bowls, using whatever ingredients you choose -- from a mix of really good stuff . . . . and very... More

I am a. Mexican food addict I literally can walk into a Mexican restaurant and tell by the smell if it will be good or not. I walked into this restaurant--if you can call it that--and there was no smell. Then I was given a tour of the foods by a very nice young man. It took me about one... More
