We love this little place. Yes, you will have to wait for a table and you will be terribly crowded when you do sit down but you'll meet interesting folks there. The tacos al pastor carved from the pork leg are unbeatable. They come with four sauces which vary from mild to fiery and are superb Perhaps the best thing:... More

There are times when you just need a few tacos al pastor with some roasted scallions and a cold beer. When that time arrives there is no better place than Panchos tacos. A tradition in PV for those of us that like a late taco after a night of partying. Try them all but don't miss the Tacos al pastor... More

Although the wait can range from 20-30min on busy nights, and seating can get a bit crowded, my family and I believe it is all worth it! The tacos, quesadillas, cebollitas, and the fresh guacamole are our favorites! This is our go to spot, we love the food, the atmosphere, and the service. While on vacation we always make sure...

Yeah like everyone says the food is very good. But not to wait in line for 20-30 minutes. You can walk in about any direction and find another place that has very good food and not a line. Don't let the front of a place or lack of a line fool you. Many places are just as good or better... More

EAT HERE. If you like tacos, if you like Mexican food, eat here. My partner and I ate here and then bought more food to go and eat at our airbnb. During dinner time there could be a small wait, but its worth it. I also recommend the bistec encebollado tacos (omg get it twice), and the fondue with chorizo... More

Just got back from having a great meal for less than $14.00 US dollars. We had three tacos each, 2 daiquiris and a lemonade. They open at 6 so come early. Just look for the line of people on the sidewalk.

Fabulous food. We had to wait 30 mins but it was well worth it. Best food ever. We discovered this little gem the last day of our trip, wish we had known earlier, would have come here all 4 days. Do not miss this!!!
