I have been going to Pancho's for about 35 years and have been to every location. They always bring you cheese dip and salsa as soon as you sit down and keep you supplied for the duration. I like the ""build your own lunch"" and usually get the Mexican cheeseburger, tamales and an enchilada, along with the beans and rice. This is a HUGE platter of food for about $8. Factor in the free cheese dip and the price is pretty good. I love the little tamales and the brown gravy. In fact, I love it all. I think they have the best beans of any Mexican eatery. That said, I will agree that it is far from authentic Mexican. I go to Abuelos for one style, Panchos for their style and one of the MANY true Mexican operated joints because I like them all. My family actually chooses Panchos over the others and I place it as a tie with Aubelos, although an entirely different dining experience. Writing this review has me ready to go eat there now. Give it a chance.
