When I go to Pancho's, I know I will get a parking spot, as there is free parking on both sides of their building. I know the service will be so very friendly, professional and attentive. Many of the same wait staff have been there...More

I live nearby and whenever I have a craving for FRESH Mexican food, I go to Pancho's. Every other Mexican restaurant fails in comparison to Pancho's...And I've tried many. Food is great, wait staff personably, service great (except slow on Thurs/Fri evenings due to crowds),...More

My wife and I have eaten here twice in the past two weeks. Great enchiladas del mar. Good carnitas and enchiladas suizas, They don't shred their chicken in the suizas which they should - that is part of the standard preparation. Friendly, long term employees,...More
