We're regulars for the past two years, usually once a week for lunches or dinner. Have always had fresh crispy chips and love the excellent guacamole. We've tried almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. The waitresses have been the same for quite a while and have always been very friendly and attentive. We particularly enjoy that they don't over spice the food, although they'll make it as hot as you wish and they provide a wonderful homemade hot sauce at the table that will light things up nicely if you need more heat. Red or white sangria is made to order and served in a pint glass with plenty of fresh fruit. Dos Equis on tap and an good selection of ice-cold bottled Mexican beers as well, including Pacifica, Tecate, Carta Blanca and several Modelos. This is one of our go-to spots for delicious food and drinks at very reasonable prices.

Had a great meal of grilled chicken fajitas, nachos ranchero, and fresh squeezed lime margaritas. The service was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is very casual with murals on the walls depicting Mexican scenes and traditional music playing in the background. We came here because we were looking for Mexican food and margaritas in Pittsfield. We weren't disappointed and will go back.

Well, if you have never had good Mexican; either Sonoran, Tex-Mex or Cal-Mex you might not notice, but we spend a couple of weeks a year in Tucson and have a bit of experience.

Really bad!

Their food is pretty decent, just be prepared when you ask for steak something...you're gonna get roast beef. Their chimmichangas and fahitas are great. It's a fairly small bar/restaurant, but have never had to wait, and the interior is decorated Mexican style. Someone said the guacamole was watery and chips stale, but we've never had that problem. The wait staff does seem to 'turn over" quite frequently..maybe that is the reason for some of the problems sometimes. If we were really in the mood for Mexican, we would go back.

Pancho's has a good selection of authentic tasting dishes; however, service and some sides aren't up to par.

Their "standard fare": Burritos, Tacos, etc. are all very good and their specialty dishes we've had have always ranged from good to excellent. You should be pleased with almost any main course.

Their sides, particularly the rice, salsa, and guacamole, are not up to snuff, and their tortilla chips are poor at best. More care needs to be taken with this, especially since the chips are often the first thing you taste in this type of restaurant.

Service can also be a bit slow and non-attentive.

No clue why they don't take care of these seemingly easy fixes. It would change the whole experience.
