I'm mystified by the number of Hispanic people we saw pouring into this restaurant. It is dingy looking and service is minimal. The top of our chip basket held normal looking chips but the bottom was small pieces and brown chips. It made me wonder if the same baskets are just refilled with more chips for the next customer. The... More

We craved Mexican food and took a detour off the 29. We chose the sampler. A bit dry. Very friendly waitress though.

Although there have been a few times when the food was not as fantastic overall their food has great taste and is served hot and fresh. We enjoy both locations in Culpeper and go there at least once a month

We have been eating here for the past 10 years. It is our comfort and go to place when we are out and about. Food and service are always great, and Julio is amazing.

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

They were not wrong the food was very good and authentic and the portions were most generous. neither of us had an appetizer and judging... 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
