The owner greeted us when we arrive and he was very friendly. We barley saw our server, other people kept having to come refill our drinks and whatnot. Food wasn't bad, just kind of bland. Only first basket of chips and salsa is free after that you're charged! Just FYI incase you don't see the signs.

Met some local friend for dinner here. We sat out on the patio (highly recommend doing that). The manager (owner?) was so cool...making jokes and serving great margaritas! Free chips and salsa, and the food was great. I'd go again!

Decided to have Mexican while in Lake Tahoe near Kings Beach and this place appeared on our radar, so we decided to give it a shot. Well we were disappointed from the service to the food.
1. The server/host spilled salsa on my friends phone and didnt know what to do with a half hearted apology.
2. The service in talking our drink and food order was extremely slow, about 15 minutes for him to get back and take our order which was slightly messed up.
3. The food was very bland and not appetizing at all.

The chips were good, that was about it. We won't be going back here again.

If you come from New Hampshire, you'll love this place. I like my food more spicy(not necessarily piquante). The relleno was cheesy (yeah!!!). But just plain. Albondigas was calabasas soup (squash and zucchini) with two meatballs. I'm used to meaty broth.

Las Panchitas is our go-to Mexican food restaurant in Tahoe. The food is plain home cooking. The refried beans are the best I have ever tasted and everything comes piping hot from the kitchen. The staff is friendly and helpful and if you don't find what you would like, all you have to do is ask. There is a patio for summer cafe eating. There is a lunch menu of very inexpensive combinations. And everything is good.
