I live locally but have family and friends in Southern California and Arizona so travel there often. In those areas Mexican Restaurants are common, not unique. Pancho Villas could compete easily in quality and... More

I have been coming here with my family since we started skiing at Hunter in 2009. We always have a fun time and a great meal. This is my favorite Tannersville restaurant. Drinks are great. Menu is diverse. Prices are reasonable. Love it

We ate here twice during our recent stay in Tannersville. Seems to be very popular, with locals as well as tourists. Gets very busy as the evening progresses--go early, or be prepared to wait at the bar for a table. Can't say enough about the food--fabulous! The salsa is made fresh daily, according to a clerk at our B&B, who... More

YES! And some of the best we've had. Service was great and food was top-notch. There were also a number of selections for "gringos". Well worth a visit.

We just found this gem of Mexican restaurant. What a nice surprise ! Food is awesome. We got the special burrito and the Mexican tacos with steak. The steak in the tacos was excellent. Nice atmosphere too. Totally recommended is traveling to the Catskills, Hunter Mt area.

The margaritas are great!! The food was okay - the chicken enchiladas were a bit dry, and the camarones in garlic sauce were good, but didn't taste much like garlic. Service is excellent.

Enchiladas, burritos, and more TexMex fare in Tannersville! Great Margaritas. An inexpensive meal and colorful ambiance. Service is generally very good. Restaurant gets very busy on weekend nights, so go early (before 6 pm), or expect a wait.
