This family friendly restaurant serves excellent food, large portions and all at a reasonable price. The outdoor patio is fantastic. We try to go to Pancho's as often as we can when in town. The staff is great and responsive when an issue arrives.

We loved the live music and bought the cd. The food was ok but the marguerites were great.
The service was friendly. It was a great family outing.

Food was average nothing to write home about. Lots of distractions more of a sports bar than a family restaurant.

I had picked this restaurant as sounding interesting and being handy to our B&B (Next door). It is an attractive, bustling place, with an outside dining patio, serving a Mexican "plus" menu. There was a very talented cowboy-style musician on the patio, with a great and diverse repertoire. Our server was friendly and efficient for the most part, though she seemed a little put out when we cancelled dessert.
The Pancho McGillicuddy Platter was very good, but my wife's cheese and chicken quesadillas appeared ro be made with plain, unadorned canned chicken. When my dessert of coffee and sopapillas was ordered, the coffee arrived after a short wait, but all we got for the sopapillas were several promises of "just a few more minutes". We finally gave up, cancelled the order, paid and left. It was a shame. As much as I love sopapillas, I believe that coffee and dessert are a complementary unit, and that kitchen incompetence is inexcusable (Sopapillas take less than 15 minutes to make, unless you make them from scratch which, for a restaurant, would be silly).
Location, good atmosphere and service, and great music cannot overcome average food and a sub-par restaurant. The latter are the biggest reasons for eating out.

Great mexican food for a good price. Normal european size portions of food. So you don't get sick of only the look of it( which is common in most of the USA restaurants). Salsa en beef are lovely and a bit spicey which i like. Waitress was not to hasty( we dutch don't mind if it takes more than 10 minutes before our food arrives) I loved their strawberry margeritha!!
