“We STILL love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

My teen daughter and I have been to Pancho's Takos in March 2010 and January 2011 and absolutely loved everything about it. We actually ate there several times on each of those trips.

In March 2012 we again visited PV and for our first evening we knew we had to make this place our first eating stop. Now that it is listed on Trip Advisor it is a bit busier than before, but now there are tables on the expanded sidewalk area, so luckily we only had a 2 minute wait. We placed our order for tacos al pastor (our favourite) and the cute young waiter looked at my daughter and said "no onion or cilantro, right?" I couldn't believe it, he remembered us from 14 months earlier!

Tacos al pastor are now up to 10 pesos, but are still an excellent value and taste as wonderful as ever. I love the slightly hurried ambiance and friendly staff, we were happy to see the same faces working there.

“Awesome sopas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

this restraunt does not open till after 6 pm and stays open till 2 am, or until the meat is gone. It is so good and very inexpensive. The pork is marinated over an open fire with a pineapple on top and bottom for flavor and shaved when you order. I always go here when I am in PV at least a couple times, but dont be surprised how busy they are and you may have to wait a short time due to limited space.
