Above average Mexican food for Alaska. Good food, decent drinks, good service in a quaint setting. Salsa and chips were also good. I'd say it's very equal or similar to Las Margarita's, which is also in Anchorage, as far as price and quality of food.

The carne asada is always delicious. Margaritas are strong and there are lots of tequilas to choose from. I always have a good meal here.

Pancho's Villa was amazing! The food was soooo good! The Mexican soft tacos are just like street tacos! It was so delicious! It looks a little dark from the outside but it's very nice inside and the food is EXCELLENT! Thank you Pancho's Villa for a fantastic meal!

Probably the best place to get Mexican food in Anchorage: well prepared by chef and the owners: if you stop by drink a Margarita: you will be happy you did

It's not very exciting from the outside and the area looks sketchy, but the inside is quaint, the service is good and the food is excellent! Kids meals are under $6 and priced right. The portions are very big and I couldn't finish mine.

Have visited several times. Food is always perfect. Fast, friendly service. Reasonable prices. Margaritas are yummy. Have had quesadilla, tacos, enchiladas, pollo fundido. Park across the street if the front is full. It's a small restaurant but worth it!

This was our second visit to Pancho's and it was even better this time. We came to celebrate our kids birthdays and they included free dessert for the kids after our fantastic meal. Enchiladas, burritos, taquitos and fajitas are all fantastic. Our son would like everyone to know that he would have rated it 17 million stars if he could... More

This is the second best Mexican food in Anchorage. Growing up in CA, I can be kind of a Mexican food snob, but I have to admit, this place is pretty authentic. Feels like an old Cantina that has been there for 100 years. I go whenever I'm on that side of town.
