Panchos is Culpeper staple and we go there four or five times a year for a "Mexican food fix". The salsa and chips are excellent and the cheese sauce should not be missed. Sometimes we order out just for these items to serve them as appetizers. Panchos offers an excellent variety and it won't cost you an arm and a... More

I enjoyed the Plato Acapulco. It had the flavors that you would expect, but it was a unique dish. I love being able to get something different, even though I enjoy the typical tacos, burritos, etc. They have a reasonable parking lot and the restaurant was clean and comfy. Our waitress was very friendly and overall it was a very... More

This is one of three Mexican places in Culpeper, and it's my least favorite. The food is on the bland side of average. I expect a little more fresh cilantro, or at least some cumin when I order Mexican. Sadly the salsas and my dish (enchiladas) lacked both. The margaritas were nothing exciting either. Staff was very friendly and service... More

Recommend the appetizer of deep fried avocado, unique and delish. Lunch prices (excluding the buffet) are a teeny bit on the higher side, but it is GOOD food and good service. This restaurant is a part of chain of local family operated restaurants, it seems that each location can provide a different experience and these inconsistencies can be unfortunate with... More

Typical "mexican" food for virginia and most places that are not California, Texas, New Mexico or Arizona. The dishes are all mild but the base flavors are there. The table side Guacamole is a fun show and treat. If you want authentic mexican, you wont find it here. But the prices and flavors are respectable.

I have to say this is the best Mexican food in town, but far from the best I've had. Food is a bit pricy for what it is but we still go a few times a year.

Fantastic Mexican fare. Never had a bad meal or service here. I would highly recommend eating here. There is another location just off the highway (Rt. 29) but it's usually empty inside and surprisingly takes awhile to be served. I'd eat at the one in-town.

Food was good . Very nice server. Taste of the food was great. margaritas were also very good. It was in the middle of the hotel district so it was convenient. Walking distance from hotel.
