This restaurant is my fav because of many reason. First is because of their great service and finger licking food, second because this same location I met my wife for the very first time for lunch. Atmosphere, location, service and food worked its magic. One of my favorite of all time .

We came as a result of asking our bartender for recommendations on good Mexican Food in the area. What we found was the best that we had eaten on our whole trip across country! The food, atmosphere and personalized service were fantastic. We were smiling the whole day afterwards. ::)

I was expecting it to be better because they say Mexican in Cali is better than other places. Living in Florida the Mexican food I've had I would say was just as good as this place.

The "Panchos house band" packs em in, adroitly playing faithful covers of rock n roll favorites. The mainly 40-something crowd was into the music and dancing, dancing, dancing. Tasty scallop cerviche and margaritas.

We had a great time at Panchos listening to the band play 70s and 80s classics and they were GREAT! Our waitress was amazing and we enjoyed the crowd. It was a really fun evening. I recommend it!
