The size of the restaurant is very deceiving. If you're not seated downstairs...make a point to walk over to see the seating downstairs. It is gorgeous. Service was a bit slow as our waiter spent a LONG time speaking to what appeared to be friends...for...More

It was Sunday after church and Mexican sounded good. Thankfully Panchos has good food. In addition, the service remains excellent! The wife went with the enchilada while I had the divorced eggs dish. Both were good, as was the fresh fruit and chips that were...More
