Just fabulous!!! Very tasty - awesome!!! Will go back again. The "al pastor" style with a slice of pineapple is highly recommended. Also try volcano tacos (on a tostada), or any of the quesadillas. Great service, friendly and fast. If you have to wait few minutes, please do - it's worth it!!!

We ate at Pancho's 4 times in 8 nights (would have been more had we not come too early the first few days). It's THAT good. My girlfriend and I both got a little teary eyed when we bit into our first Al Pastor taco.... it's that good. I am not kidding... great service for an unbeatable price (10 pesos for a taco - that's less than $1). Just incredible. I would recommend everyone go there at least once (or 4 times) on your trip. They open at 6pm every night.

This place is soooo good!!! The al pastor is to die for!! And the volcano tacos. Mmmmm!!! Such a hole-in-the wall place, which I loved. The atmosphere was so great - you watch the guys make the tacos right in front of you. It's such a busy bustley place, it makes for a great dinner before hitting the Malecon. We had 8 beers, 10 al pastors, 6 volcanoes, 2 quesadillas, 2 chicken and 2 beef tacos for 500 pesos (which is about $38). UNREAL!!! AND SOOOO GOOD!! Little tip - the place opens at 6 and get there AT 6. If you wait any longer, you'll be waiting for a while to get a seat. But even if you do have to wait, it's so worth it.

Came to P.V on cruise. After excursion got a cab to take us to Old P.V and Panchos Takos. The cab driver had to consult three other drivers before he knew where to take us. Read all the other reviews they are right! Worth the $ to take the cab there. Order one of everything that looks good to you, also have them recommend. Truly a real Mexican experience. Get away from the Malecom.
Also check out our review of Las Caletas Excursion it was terrific.
