Not a lot open in GL this time of year, so friends chose Panchos. It's a cute, kitschy place with a huge bar, lots of tv's, tables inside & out, boats hung upside-down on the ceiling, a ginormous beercan collection. If you want to drink,...More

Enjoy the view of Grand Lake on the back patio as you enjoy a drink. Live music most weekends in the evenings also. Food is adequate, and the beverages plentiful.

This is a truly horrible restaurant. It actually doesn't deserve to be called a restaurant. So we went on Saturday 9/20, when there was a crowd in town. Our party of 3 adults and 3 kids got on the list for seating and were told...More

The Chile relleno was good, service was fine. It was early in the day so they weren't busy. My husband had the fishbowl margarita that was tasty. He had the carnitas burrito he thought was okay.

It seemed as if the staff was confused. No one to seat us and when the bus boy took it upon himself to help he wouldn't seat us outside. We were finally moved outside but the waitress was so overwhelmed she ran past our table...More

We had very low expectations coming in and were pleasantly surprised. If you were in a college town, Pancho’s would fit in. It is average- which is fine when you are hungry and just need a decent place to eat. We wanted something simple. The...More
