Four years ago our food was so bad that 5 out of 6 said we’d not return. Tonight we decided it was time to try it again. We all agreed it was just ok . The quesadillas were a bit over cooked, the queso was...just warm and the margaritas taste like frozen sprite slushy drinks…. not much alcohol in them.More

Well, we all know Taco Tuesday is the best day of the week. Especially when the crunchy beef tacos are only $.99! They will satisfy the palate and bank account! Their outdoor patio is a lovely place to chill and enjoy those rays and a...frozen margarita or two 😉 Follow my foodie Instagram for more: @pack_the_plateMore

I used to eat at Pancho’s in the 1980’s and loved it then. I moved away and came back to visit in 2021 and it was as yummy as ever!! Apparently others do too since I ran into friends I hadn’t seen in 45 years...while there!! Their chimichanga and Mexican pizza were unusally tasty but my gold standard is the cheese quesadilla and it was full of spicy ooey gooey cheese!! Perfection!More

Used to frequent here in the '80's and '90's when the facility was lively, clean, and great food. Had not been there for a few years and was disappointed on this visit. It's now tired looking, with bland food, and frankly too dirty in the...kitchen for me to want to return. The entrance way is tired and needs remodeling; the access to the bar seating area is poorly designed by today's standards and should be more open. Heading to the restroom - which had not recently been serviced - the open kitchen was a disgrace of food waste on the floor with greasy tread marks from years of foot traffic without deep cleaning. We were expecting their zesty queso sauce of the past for the famous, large, homemade chips, but instead the appetizer tasted like generic cheese sauce with small chips. My arroz con pollo dish entree was mostly of rice, a bland sauce, and little chicken. The bar area near us was no longer being used for seating but instead it was the clutter area for table settings. Bar service was attentive and the best part of the evening. Sadly, this formerly fine establishment is not likely to exist much longer if the management doesn't sharpen up.More

Taco Tuesday is a great time to come to this restaurant. The full menu is available but you can order 99 cent tacos on Tuesdays if you would like. There is a large menu of other options. Their homemade seasoned tortilla chips are wonderful along...with their homemade salsa or queso. Pleasant wait staff. Good service. (If you go on Tuesdays at dinner time be prepared to wait a while for your food as the restaurant is packed.) if celebrating a birthday they bring a sombrero and sing Happy Birthday. They have a wonderful fried ice cream dessert you can share.More

Not as good as it used to be. Did not like the flavors as much and the queso was a little watered down. Also expensive for what you get. There are better Mexican places in the area.

Our server Kaylee was wonderful. She was so patient as we tried to figure out what to order. There were so many choices! I settled on a combo with a flauta, tamale and enchilada. All 3 were amazing. The long lines are a dead giveaway...that this place is awesome!More

We went for lunch with 17 people. I had called ahead to reserve and they had everything set up. Everyone loved the food and the service was excellent- we had Jane as our server. Only one persons food order was incorrect but that was taken...care of within minutes and the person was very happy. We also celebrated a birthday. They brought a Mexican hat and dessert for the celebration. (we did have to pay for the dessert.) They do have a daily lunch special and there are many little areas and rooms with TVs in certain spots in the restaurant.More

Well... after I ate most of the chicken I realized it was undercooked. Well, 24 hours later and for three days I am now confident that I will never, ever eat undercooked chicken again. I didn’t get this sick when I ate street food in...Mexico!! (I won’t be adding photos)More

This week, a friend and I ate lunch here on Tuesday and it was “Ninety Nine Cent Taco” day. Even though I am trying to eat healthy, this was an amazing option. I had six tacos with no cheese and no shell. Amazing and healthy....Get the Italian dressing too! The service was friendly and fast!More

As a frequent visitor to the Southwest (particularly New Mexico), I was overjoyed to find this place! It has the real Southwestern flavors I long for, including REAL, NOT CANNED green chiles that they will put on anything you like. Plus, the salsa & guacamole...are delicious and fresh, and the sopailillas & crunchy ice cream made for a wonderful finish to the meal. I've tried many Mexican restaurants in Ohio, and this place blows them all out of the water, and is as close to the real Southwestern deal as you're going to find. Outstanding!More

This is a favorite Mexican restaurant for many in the Stark and Summit Counties area. The food is great. The staff is wonderful. Taco Tuesdays is a big hit. Lunch or dinner you will almost always find this place filled with people having a great...time enjoying good food. They bring chips and individual salsa dishes to the table when you’re seated. If you’re celebrating a birthday they’ll bring fried ice cream, out a sombrero in your head and sing Happy Birthday. It’s amazing how many people this restaurant can seat. My husband and I split the fajita trio and it was more than enough food. If you come on Taco Tuesday be prepared to wait.More
