Pancho's Authentic Mexican Restaurant
Ranked #94 of 213 Restaurants in Troy
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 June 2015

Pancho's is a great little mexican restaurant hidden in a little strip mall off of Hoosick Street. You can easily miss it, so look carefully. It is in the strip mall next to the Wal-Mart.
I've never had something that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed. My favorite lunch is the beef chimichanga. The portion-size is perfect - very rarely too much (unless you wanted to get dessert, too...) - but always filling.
If you have left room for dessert, you're in luck. They have a great dessert menu, including several cheesecake varieties and a yummy fried ice-cream.
I can usually get in and out in less than 40 minutes, leave very happy and full, and spend less than $15 including tip...

With it being cinco.do.mayo I understand you can be overwhelmed .but how Do you except a phone order -tell them 45mins then get there to pick up your order and be told Another 10 mins your ready will be ready.Then you wait another 30 mins just to be told that the kitchen never made any take orders because they were too busy doing in house orders.But if I still want it Then it will take another 20 mins! This Was done to 4 others that were waiting for orders called ahead.Never returning again !!!

This used to be a better than average Mexican place. But both the food and service have been in a decline over the past few years.

Worse, Troy is having a revival as a place to eat which makes Panchos suffer even more in comparison. Skip it and head downtown for lots of better choices.

We started with a half pitcher of house margarita's that were not very good at all - the mix tasted like a powder mix and it ruined the drink. I am not sure if I had paid more for a special margarita if they would have used a different mix. The dinner was very good - surprisingly good. The food was very fresh and had a very nice taste to it - I had the special Loco Burrito that was listed on the board by the door as you entered. It was very good, but came with no rice or beans and that would have made the dinner. The interior could use some sprucing up and they really need to fix the margarita mix and all would be much better. I also found the menu a bit confusing with too much to read - they should work to figure out their most popular items and condense the menu a bit. The desserts looked like they were bought frozen and had no special feel to them. Right now it is just average and where I live I can get much better in Williamstown, MA. with the same car ride.

Food is OK but the plate looked so beige - a sprig of parsley would have been an improvement. And the margarita is weak. It could have been my neighbor joint. Too bad.
