The atmosphere is festive and the service is great! The food is fresh and well prepared. We like it to be spicy, so they gave us a dish of their homemade habanero sauce which was excellent. The chips and salsa are also good with plenty of cilantro in the salsa. Portions are big enough to have a little left over.... More

I had... More

Have visited here several times. The staff is always very pleasant and helpful. I always order the chicken, shrimp and steak fajitas. Delicious and very filling and the fresh salsa and chips that are served while you wait for your food.....so good!

Potions are a fair sized for the price. Not a big variety. Margaritas are good but not very big. Service is good. Would like to see more items on the menu.

The food was really good, light and clean. The guacamole was absolutely amazing (just give me a spoon & the guacamole) and the salsa & chips were fresh. Looking forward to stopping by for dinner next time.

I have been here so many times, the food is always good from texmex to traditional dishes. Staff and owner are some of the nicest people you will find. Chips and salsa always fresh. Best margarita in the area.

Stopped in with friends for drinks, on the way home from a different restaurant. Margaritas are the best I've ever had! Chips/Salsa is great, fresh ingredients. Second trip we had dinner and of course Margaritas! Great atmosphere, great food.

This restaurant has pretty good Tex-mex style food, the quality varies from dish to dish. Last time I went my husband had blackened chicken fajitas and I had street tacos. Both were very good! The best part about the place is the beautifully landscaped patio where you can enjoy a margarita and some sunshine. Despite the restaurant being on a... More

This is one of my favorite spots in the state! I go every Cinco De Mayo and it never lets me down. Great food and excellent value. It's in the middle of no where but I drive 30-40 minutes to come here with a smile on my face. Highly recommend.

Senor Pancho's Mexican Restaurants offers a sizzling atmosphere any day of the week, right from when it opens at 11:30 AM each day. We have been a family dining hot spot since 1989 in Southbury, 2006 in Prospect and 2014 in Thomaston. Senor Pancho's has been a favorite place for locals to experience the taste and feel of old Mexico.
