“Get there early”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

If you don't get there early you can find it on Basiilio Badillo Calle where a line of people are waiting for a table. It is well worth the wait.

“A great little taco stand with seating, both inside and out.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We eat here several times each winter and every time we are amazed at the quality and efficient service.
We tend to order quesadillas and the tacos al pastor which are both great value. Like much of the Mexican street food we are talking simple food with dynamite flavours. There is nothing like good quality ingredients, simply prepared. The wait staff are very pleasant and the beer and soda are always ice cold.
Get a seat outside on the sidewalk and watch the world go by.

“Finally ! REAL Tacos !!!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Pancho's Takos doesn't open until 6pm, but get there early for a table. The place fills quickly and the food flies out of the kitchen. A staff person slices pork from a vertical rotisserie for the tacos, which are offered 2 ways: can be folded in half or on a firm shell. Tacos were about 3 inches in diameter with pork, cheese, and cilantro on them. Ordering is done off a paper slip and tacos run roughly $1.00 (US) each. Average person could eat 6-7 each, so order everything your table will need right away. The food was served hot and was excellent. Expect to wait 15-20 minutes for a seat. Move over, Taco Bell !!

We ate here two nights and it was amazing. We didn't wait very long and even if we had waited the food was great, def the best tacos we had the whole time we were here. You will not be disappointed.
