We want here new years eve . I love Mexican food and this did not disappoint. I had chicken jambalaya. Not much atmosphere for NYE but guess it's only a restaurant but we were given sombreros whilst there. Will return

This is a great place if you love Mexican food. Good value and serves great cocktails too. I've been here a couple of times to eat and also just popped in for some cocktails with a friend one Saturday evening .. can't wait to go back

Service is a little on the poor side but not so bad you want to leave. Food is very tasty, we love the buffalo wings with blue cheese dip for starters, and the mixed burritos for main. £19 for a starter and main course, no idea how people can say it's expensive, I think some are too used to McDonalds...

I usually chose Panchos for special treat nights and have never had anything that has been anything less than gorgeous. Wait staff are great too - highly recommended. They have cheap cocktails during the week and a very... More

Yet again we still haven't learned that places don't get better. This is the second time we have tried Ponchos in Rayleigh. I wasn't that thrilled the last time some 3 to 4 years ago. But we had a voucher so decided to give it another try. The food is overpriced and not particularly good. I had Fajitas which had... More
