Pancheros Mexican Grill
Ranked #88 of 159 Restaurants in Ankeny
Price range: USD 3 - USD 10

Description: Fresh-pressed tortillas. The finest ingredients. Perfectly mixed bites. Better Built Burritos are in a league of their own. Standing tall as they are proud, tasty as they are sturdy. Standing boldly above their lesser-built burrito peers.

I'm hoping that the young woman who helped us was having a bad day, because if that is how she always treats/greets customers, she should not be in that position.
It wasn't too busy, but they weren't too quick either. I won't complain about time taken to freshly press the tortillas for the burritos, because they were good and worth that fresh time. But the rest of the food was average and kind of bland. I have heard from friends that the other locations are not like this, so next time I will take the drive to the next town over so I can get better service.

i have been here many times and had good burritos and ok ones and one bad one with fatty meat one time or dried out rice or old jalapenos but never had one so gross as the other night and got charged extra because the lady didnt understand english. It was so terrible i got it to go so i wasnt going to drive back to the other side of ankeny to tell them but i could not believe how old and gross they let the beans and queso get over cooked 5 times the beans were crumchy hard un edible rocks never ever has it been that bad. i did not care for the people working that night the lady was terrible there has been much more helpful people at night who understand english and do a good job and dont leave rotten food in the containers yuck i wont ever go back now after that 11 dollar waste of money for a burrito and queso and whateber else they gave me an extra charge for randomly when i didnt get anything extra they have done that every other time and i get the same thing every time it's annoying...good luck you can not stay in buisness selling rotten food. I am so dissappointed and disgusted with this place now. I orginally had only decent experiences and burritos before this horrible night even the week before last at night was good...this time i should have gotten my money back i was not even able to eat it and it was a complete waste.

Very fresh and healthy ingredients to choose from to customize your own burrito. Good service and employees are always friendly. Good place to satisfy that occasional burrito craving. Will keep going back.

I am not only in love with their food but the ankeny panchero service. I have never had a bad experience. Clearly some people are a little uptight and picky but the workers are nice and would gladly spread meat or add extra toppings if you ask. Yes the prices can be high but it is the food and friendly service that will keep me in their restaurant.

It was ok, but I found it bland and not very authentic. The veggies are nice but there wasn't anything special or memorable so I won't be back.
