The restaurant opens at 6 PM and there is a long line to get in every night. We got a sidewalk table & our server brought us margaritas & assisted us with our order. He was surprised how much we had ordered & told us it was way too much for us to eat. We quickly amended our order &... More

This place has been good for years but it seems that a lot more people know about it now. The lines can be long. My advice would be to go later in the evening. It is good for dinner but better after being out late at night. The tacos pastor are the best things they have and if you don't... More

The servers are excellent at there job and even cater to you as you wait for a table. I definitely recommend you swinging by and seeing... More

Must eat at restaurant in PV! It seems like there is always a wait but we were very impressed with how organized the host was. He seemed to remember everyone by their face and offered guests drinks while they waited. We were even able to order prior to sitting down so that our food came quickly. The tacos were bursting...

One of the first places I want to eat it when back in PV. Best food, best service, fun experience as well right on the west end of Basilio Badillo next to another great spot Caffè de Olla. Street seating is fun and very organized. And it's very reasonably priced too!

Your visit to PV will not be complete without a trip to Pancho's. We were walking around the Zona Romantica and noticed people starting to line up for this place before 6pm, when they open. We were not hungry yet, so continued walking, shopping, and watched the sunset. We arrived back at Pancho's around 8pm and were seated within 20... More

Our family of 5 waited almost an hour for a seat but it was worth the wait. We all shared the special tacos of the day and a few drinks. Very tasty and fun staff.
