Editorial review from Citysearch 1/26/2013

Don't expect good - or even decent - service here. Pitiful on a good day. I'll never be back - left after 10min at table, NO server. The young woman who seated me (and then left me a dirty menu and didn't take my drink order) later seated another couple at the TABLE NEXT TO ME, and TOOK their drink order! All this time I'm waiting, the place is nearly empty -- and a couple of other servers at the other end of the dining room pointing at tables (including mine), apparently trying to figure out which table to ignore first. I won. One of the OTHER servers then walks PAST ME, and back to the aforementioned table that the hostess took drink orders. I was obviously being ignored. Pancho's; don't ever expect to see me there again. more

I will never eat here again. 1/7/2010

I placed my take out order at the bar and received prompt & fast service. I ordered 3 tacos, 1 burrito, and 1 tamale for dinner, thinking this will be plenty for two people. When I picked up my order the bag felt really light for the amount of food ordered. The tacos hardly had any beef in them. The burrito was the same way and the beef was chewy. The tamale was tiny and cost $3. I was extremely disappointed with the quantity and quality of the food. My bill was $14.85 and I was still hungry after eating my half. Pros: fast service Cons: small portions for the price more

Bland food for the money 2/25/2009

I wouldn't say the food is horrible at Pancho's, but it definitely is NOT worth the money you pay for it. I don't believe I've had blander mexican food in my life. Everything is at least as expensive if not more so that Nuevo Laredo (the gold standard of mexican cuisine in atlanta) but the food is far far far inferior. Also, unless you order Texas style, the margaritas will be like watered down sour mix. Pros: It's kind of cute inside Cons: The food isn't a good value for the price. more

Mmmmmm margaritas!!! 8/15/2008

Pancho's has great chips and salsa. We ordered a cheese dip and the spice made us order more drinks. I had the chicken wings and they are really good for a Mexican place. The patio is really nice. The service could use some improvements but I'll be back for sure. Pros: patio more


I love this place! The margaritas are the best in town and the bartenders are always on the ball refilling your drinks just in time. Everyone knows the customers and are always friendly. If you wanna expierence an atmosphere that is friendly and exciting than you need to check this place out. No matter where you sit your expierence is top notch and full of fun. more

Watch Out! Very Low Health Inspection Scores! 10/23/2006

My husband and I used to enjoy eating here. But the health inspection scores for the last two inspections dipped below 80...completely unacceptable. We experienced one of the problems mentioned on the Dekalb County board of health website....cold food which could harbor bacteria. Eat at your own risk until things improve. I hope they fix it we miss Pancho's! Pros: Tasty and Cheap Cons: A Health Hazard more

Best Mexican Experience in Atlanta!!! 9/26/2006

If you are looking for a fast wine and dine..then don't come here. This is the BEST place to go with friends or anyone. They have the best margarita's in Atlanta, and do not charge you an arm and leg for it. Their food is authentic and true to the Mexican way, the value makes it even better!! The atmosphere makes you feel like you are away and just enjoying life...even though you over look I-85. It is a back type of place, do not expect the waiters to hurry you out...come is Mexican. It out does Rio Grande any day of the week, esp when it comes to the drinks. A $5 margarita gets you feelin good, and a $15 pitcher has your feeling even better! I love it and have gotten so many people hooked on it...HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Pros: Great Value while not shorting you on quality! Cons: Service can sometimes be slow more

Horrible Service 6/15/2006

My friends and I use to go to Pancho's all the time. Lately the service has gone down hill. You seat yourself which is nice and they have a great patio with the large tree never get waited on unless you stop someone walking by. The margaritas are very watered down or shall I say, nothing but sour mix. The chips & cheese dip are tasty and once you actually get your food it is good. Pros: Chips & Salsa Cons: Bad/Slow Service more

Best Mexican in Town 12/2/2005

This place is awesom. The food is great and I was very impressed by the service. The staff did everything in their power to make your dining experience pleasurable. Also, I got the Texas Margarita (with Gold Label and Grand Marnier) and it was the best Margaerita I have ever had, but very strong. I highly recomd this place. more

exceptionally mediocre. 11/12/2005

The best description that I can give of this place is ""mediocre."" My boyfriend's margarita tasted watered down, and my carnitas were just tasted like they boiled them English-style (ie. no taste whatsoever) or something. The only thing I can say that's good is that their chips were light and their salsa was actually a little spicy (most places always seem to make theirs bland for fear of complaints of it being too hot), but really, I'm not going to go to a place just for chips and salsa. Also, they had a mariachi band, which seems like it'd be fun, but then the wait staff just stood around watching them instead of, you know, actually waiting on the people at their tables. Our waiter wasn't bad actually, but it seemed like he was waiting on over half the restaurant because over half his coworkers were simply too lazy. Pros: prompt seating, good chips & salsa Cons: bad carnitas, mediocre in general, bad parking more

best mex in town 2/13/2005

I love this place. They have the best atmosphere for a mexican place and the food is so good. The steak burrito is the best thing I've ever had. Great margaritas too that are definitely not weak. Pros: food, atmosphere, porch Cons: parking, service, expensive more

My favorite Mexican ANYWHERE!!! 12/1/2004

I live 30 minutes away, and I often make the trip to Atlanta solely for the purpose of eating at Pancho's. Their cheese dip is to die for. And their regular salsa is great, too! I always get their chicken quesadillas. Unlike most Mexican restaurants, the chicken here has tons of flavor. Pancho's costs a little bit more than most Mexican joints, but the portions are huge and I always take enough home with me for lunch the next day. If the weather permits, I'd recommend sitting outside on the patio. Sure, the only view is of the highway, but it's still fun! Pros: Great food, Convenient Location more

Best Outdoor Seating! 7/8/2003

Pancho's has the BEST porch to sit and have a few of their great margaritas with friends! The food is good, the service is good, and overall, you're gonna have a great time! Pros: Awesome porch, Great margaritas, Affordable Cons: Tricky parking more

I loved the Margaritas! 7/18/2002

The chicken fajita is excellent. I loved the cheese the put on the nachos and after just one margarita I was feeling good. The musicians play requests. We requested ""La Bamba"" You've gotta see for yourself. more
