We went early, before they open at 6:00 and there was already a long line. We decided to come back another time. Our second visit we came back late, 10:00 p.m. for dinner and it wasn't crowded. We both order the potato with pastor..70 pesos. It's a lot of food. Comes with a large serving of corn tortillas so you can make potato and pastor tacos. It was OK but not as good as we have had elsewhere in PV.

My daughter and I were lucky enough to stumble across this delicious place to eat. It was a few doors down from where we stayed and I wanted to search around but we were so starving we just thought we would go to this bustling eatery close by. Ponchos Tacos was busy and crowded but the servers are friendly and so were the customers. The food was fabulous… It was so good we ate there several times in a row because “why be disappointed and go elsewhere?” Everything we tried was top-notch. It was the highlight of our PV visit.

This place is a time hole, but the food is delicious and it is entertaining to watch the staff fly around as if they had been choreographed. Only open in the evening, and on weekends, the wait time can be very long.

Pancho's Takos is in a fantastic area and right next to another fave of mine, the Cafe de Oja. Pancho's makes the best tacos and charges very reasonable rates. Ask for extra grilled pineapple on your taco al pastor and don't be shy with the hot sauce! You usually have to wait a little to get a seat but its worth it and part of the charm of the place actually. Street musicians usually play and we always sat outside to experience it best (I think). If you get Luis for a waiter, you'll get one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, too. Sometimes I'll go to Panchos just so I can say hello to him! Well, I also go to get the tacos but its really nice to see a friendly face, too. Tell him El Martillo sent you. Maybe he'll remember me. :)

Food is well awesome! Get there early, restaurant opens at 6pm. I got there at 5:45pm and there were already 15 people in front of me. Quite fascinating place to people watch. Inside and outside tables. Lots of sidewalk entertainment, not to mention people watchin. Tables are very small. Food delicious, watch out for the habanero and onion condiment—it is outrageously hot. Prices inexpensive. I was a solo and everyone else got served before me even though my uncomplicated order was placed early on. Easy walking distance in Romantica district of PV. I would highly recommend this restaurant. You fill out your own order form with a pencil on the table. Menu is both Spanish and English. I had 3 tacos and a soda and my bill was 90 pesos, the equivalent of $4.76 US.
