Every time I come here the food, service and staff are phenomenal!! I have tried almost everything on the menu and they get it right every time!! Their Margaritas are the best in Bridgeport!

My experience at Pancho Pistolas was amazing. Our food was delicious, and the service was excellent. I I regret not ordering salsa to take back home with me. Also, my veggie fajitas was the best I ever had!!
