The friendly greeting you get as you enter the restaurant is just a prelude to the great food you are about to enjoy. What more could you ask for --great food, great service --it's definitely a "winner" I personally love the shrimp and steak items & look forward to going there as often as possible. I highly recommend it to everyone!

The waiter or waitress forgets to tell you it's 2 for one.......

Many times..... He or she tells you please remind him before you get the bill.
I have been in there at least five times, and I have to remind them each time.....not nice.

This 3 1/2 star review from the Sun Sentinal is so far off! I would give it a one star rating. The food was mediocre at best. The margaritas tasted like they took Daily's Margarita Mix and added ice to it! This place was not even worth the drive! We went to this restaurant because of the Sun Sentinal review and we were deeply disappointed in the food quality and especially the drink quality. We can make better mexican food and drinks at home!

I have been there 3 times since the review with groups from 3 to 12 and I haven't been disappointed yet! It's just great food at a great price. I would recommend the skirt that comes with a cheese enchilada, the crab filled chili rellenos, steak empinzada (the BEST breaded steak I have ever had, super crunchy) and the chimichanga. Items I wouldn't order again would be the sangria and the fried ice cream.

What I like about the food is that it's not greasy the way many mexican/cuban restaurants tend to be.

The food is great BUT the service is not. Most of the time I do take out since I live and work close by and they always seem to have a chip on their shoulder. Not very friendly at all. Almost like you're bothering them when you pick up your food. It's too bad because the food is really good but I refuse to give my money to a business who doesn't appreciate it. We also no longer do lunch take out from work.

Four of us walked into Pancho's for dinner. We have eaten here many times.It was very busy outside and we went inside where it was empty. It was very cold and we asked if they could turn the air up a little. The manager/owner came over and nastily asked "how long are you living in Fl?" I tell him and he says rudely "you live in Florida and its hot on the outside and cold in the inside!" We thought he was kidding but he walked away shaking his head in disgust. We left and we didn't expect to have this kind of attitude!!
