Tried Pancho’s out on our first night in PV. Our visit was entirely based on the reviews, and although the food is good, the lineups are very long, and patrons are rushed out.

Best authentic Mexican food. Every bite was delicious. There's always a queue for this place but it's well worth the wait. While waiting try one of their coronitas.... frozen Margarita with a bottle or corona beer stuck in it upside down.

When searching for authentic street tacos you cannot miss a visit to Panchos takos! When we stumbled across this wonderful place the line was down the block. Don’t let that detour you. The wait was only about 5 minutes. The food is fresh, fast and...More

This is the place to get your authentic Al Pastor tacos. Some of the best I've had in Mexico. Always busy so expect to wait 10-20 mins for a table in the small taqueria on Calle Basilio Badillo. If your tired of Mexican beers order...More

There is street parking but most people walk to it. Really there is minimal need for a car in PV at all.
