The atmosphere is much more dive bar than "family restaurant," but maybe "kitchy" is apt. But the service and food are both good. The green chili was surprisingly red but tasty nonetheless, and the nachos were heavily loaded and very flavorful.

Great bar, minimal items on menu. Had fish tacos which did not have much flavor. Disappointing. But it is Thursday and off season. Only crowd was at bar. We were able to watch football game on large tv at bar with geat sound.

Last year food was horrible. Thus year new menu almost all ala carte it felt. Just average really. It is for sale though so never can guess what next year will be like!

A great location during the summer, I'm sure. Went for a night cap and really enjoyed the local atmosphere. It was Texas Hold-em night, and several tables were being used. Fun to watch or even participate.

The food was horrific, the place is a dump and disgustingly dirty. Save your money, eat a PBJ instead!

Bland food, poor service, high prices. The pico was basically a bowl of onions, Nothing good to say about this place other than its location. Its for sale so hopefully someone will buy the place and turn it around.

Let's just start this review with one important thing, most of the restaurants in Grand Lake are below mediocre. Pancho & Lefty's has great variety, fresh food, delicious option!

Service was terrible. I had to wait to be served and it was NOT busy. The server never checked on us to see if everything was okay or if we wanted anything else, she never asked to refill drinks. After finished eating had to chase...More
