Just AWFUL 😢😢 I was hopeful it would still be the same but everything is so wrong. The place was literally empty except for two other couples when we arrived at 7! On a Sunday night!!!!!! Every single table out the back had a reserved sign on it to make it look like they were booked but sadly it was... More

Went there for dinner with friends on weekend. Ordered chicken & avocado burrito. Couldn't even find any avocado. The chicken was awful, the burrito size had shrunk and no sour cream - we had to ask for it. The rice was unspeakably awful. We have been restaurant patrons for over 25 years. Why change what isn't broken. They have also... More

We have been going to Panchos for 16 years and absolutely loved it. We were hopeful that we would still love our fav restaurant now it's under new management. However, the food was sloppy, portion sizes significantly reduced, recipes changed and different sauce (WHHHYYY??). We had our fav dishes (nachos and panchos delight) and they don't so much as resemble... More

We have been going to Pancho's for over 25years and clearly we love it. I have been twice since the new owners took over and this was the third and I've never been more disappointed. They have changed the re-fried beans which had a strong taste that is not normal. The rice use to be beautiful and firm however it... More

I went with 3 friends and 3 out of the four of us got the #1 combination dinner. The portion was huge and the food was good! Best Mexican food I have had since being in Australia. The sangria was also very tasty!

Huge thumbs up... More

The old Mortein ad that proclaimed "when you are on a good thing - stick to it" is spot on when it comes to success in running restaurants. On the Gold Coast where eateries change hands with alarming frequency, it is often a gamble to find a place where consistency of quality of food and service is reliable. So, in... More

Whoever is managing the restaurant now needs to up their game. The wait staff were fantastic but you... More

I went to Pancho's many years ago and was really looking forward to spending some time there with my friends for my best friend's birthday dinner. I should not have even take the drive out there!!! Although the atmosphere was electric and the food was great - having to wait 85 minutes to get our meals was extremely disappointing. I... More
