I have had some very bad experiences with Mexican food over the years and for that reason, I have tended to stay away from Mexican food establishments at all costs. We rented an apartment for a year across the street and by the 3rd time my wife suggested we try Pancho's, I gave in and said, "Ooohhh, OOOKaaayyy, I'll give it a try" (reluctantly).
I ordered something more traditional the first time (like the Steak fajitas) and it was absolutely amazing - great! I said to myself "I can't believe I waited so long to try Mexican again" after such a great meal. The bartender (woman) was excellent and was there for our every need (each time we ate there). Other times I ate there, the experience was also very positive. The service, food and atmosphere at Pancho's converted from Mexican food avoider to very open to trying it on a regular basis.
