I have been to panchos a lot of times (since 2010), mostly because is close to where I live but as soon as I moved in my new apartment and I found a good supermarket I decide to cook mexican by my own.
Fajitas honestly sucks. Sometimes they serve them spicy sometimes just bland.Sometimes they put a lot of meat sometimes very less, sometimes almost cold sometimes not... Also other dishes got same consistancy problems. And when you complain about it,the waiter or even worst the western lady overthere starts to tell you that the dish has to be cold and so on
Regarding the third floor issues, is pretty ridicoulus, and I can confirm it. Considering that for the half you can get a more than decent dinner at waipo jia, is not really a good deal.

Never go again for sure

I've been coming here for over a year now and the food is alright for Mexican food in China, atmosphere is ok (small floor plan with larger third floor), the value is just ok, mixed drinks cost a lot and vary wildly in quality and alcohol content depending on who's making them. For the past three months I've been watching them turn away customers because the first floor is full and they don't want to place customers on the larger upper level. I watched one night as the waitresses repeatedly turned away aprox 15 people all in groups of 3-5. I always thought "sucks for them" and discussed with friends why the heck they would be turning people away when the people go as far as to ask if they can sit at the upper floor. Over the past week I've now been turned away threee times myself each time asking them very clearly if I could please sit on the upper floor. Every time I am denied and most recently the reason was "the boss doesn't agree to having people sit on the third floor". I've spoken with most the expats I know and several Chinese and they all have this issue as well. The food is only average and 35 rmb for mix drinks isn't a great value but most of all I won't continue to travel over to the place just to find out that they don't want my business (I only live one big intersection away). I'd also like to discourage any potential customers from trying this place out as well. I've introduced countless people to Ponchos over the past year and it sincerely disappoints me to not be returning.
