Stopped for dinner on Saturday around 5:00 pm, first time visitor. 7 employees behind the counter, one off duty employee in the dining area. Two other couples eating. Two toddlers running around the restaurant, standing on chairs and tables, it quickly became apparent that the children were an employee's. The employees behind the counter were laughing and joking, one came... More

Panchero's has been a favorite of mine for many years. I have never been disappointed in their food, prices, service, or atmosphere. I will choose Panchero's whenever I have the option!

The guys at work brought me here my first week on the job. I was not sure what to expect, but the food is awesome. I get the chicken burrito every time I go now. Fast services, good food, and a good price!

When ordering, the workers weren't very friendly and rushed us through the ordering/food line even though there were no customers behind us. The food was good, but there seemed to be an up charge for many items that we wanted in our food, & we ended up paying just as much as we usually spend at sit-down restaurants. We probably... More

Flavor just isn't there for me. The fresh tortillas are great but not impressed with the fillings. Area is large and fairly clean.

I like the "make it in front of you" types of burrito places. East Lansing has quite a few. The other ones to the East are all better than this place. The burrito was too sticky. It stuck to the wrapper and you had to tear it apart to eat it out of the wrapper. Pricing and taste were similar... More

Stopped in for a quick, but really late dinner. Order at the counter and watch them prepare your food. It was cool. They were out of stake so they got out real stake and put it on the grill…nice to see that. Sometimes you wonder if it is just out of a "Frozen" bag. I got the bowl with chicken,... More

its a burrito. its good, but not the most flavorful. They tend to let some of their toppings sit out too long and become very soggy. This is just what I have noticed after several visits. However, on busy days I dont think this is an issue.

Big portions and fresh. I enjoyed it - note the up selling for guacamole - open late and I would go again without issue.
