Surprisingly good quality considering its Cuba and fast food. If you do not fancy to go all out on big burgers, the tacos are a good option. Some good people watching is a bonus. Do not miss Shamalya in the back either. Was closed for refurbishment in January, but is a great and relaxing place to eat, cheap too compared to most top paladeres in Habana.

I was in havana for two weeks and visited the Pachanga.I had one of their Pachanga burgers and it was very good.If you want to see more of the Pachanga just watch "Salte de sarten " on you tube by a local cuban reggaeton group named Gente de Zona.That was what brought me there and I'm glad I went.I will definately go back the next time i am in Havana.Great price as well by our standards.Go at night for the added neon lights that seem to be part of the trademark of the place.

Went to La Pachanga on a Sunday before the Industriales game for lunch. Had the tacos al pastor. Great flavour to the meat and the onions, cilantro and lime plus the sauce made it a great change from the bland food at the resort. Cheap as dirt. 2 orders of tacos and 2 beer for 10 cuc.

My husband and I recently spent 11 days in Havana. Around day 4, we realized that we had miscalculated and had not brought enough money. Like most tourists, we had been eating in restaurants. Even though the prices were reasonable, we were still expending about $20-30 CUC every time we were hungry. We did the math and realized we were in trouble.

Fortunately, we were staying in the lovely Vedado neighborhood where you will find a magical restaurant called "Pachanga!!" Our gracious host pointed out that we happened to be staying across the street from this gem, a favorite of Cuban actors. He brought us over and recommended the Hamburguesa Normal and juice. Our eyes lit up when our food arrived, and we received 2 large, juicy cheeseburgers with all the fixings and 2 full pints of fresh fruta bomba (aka papaya) juice. The burgers were delicious and came on gourmet buns! Our total bill was under 5 US dollars!!!

After that, we became Pachanga fanatics, and we may have even freaked out the staff by how often we frequented the restaurant! Thanks Pachanga!

One of the new Havana's jet set places. The serve tacos, burgers, hot dogs, the place is an old garage and living room remixed as a diner and VIP lounge and bar. Near Almendares River, nice service, great tacos, is a warm place to go in the night after party!
