We enjoyed lunch at Rancho Pancho. We had the 2 courses for £8.99 which was a great deal. Whilst the food was great we found the service a little disfunctional, one of our drinks wasn't brought over and when we ordered dessert the food was dumped on our table and the waitress walked away, she never brought cutlery over so...

Wow what a great review. Have just finished a long Valentines Day at the restaurant and to come home to read this is simply fantastic. We are currently planning on extending our lunch opening times to 4 days and I'm hopeful that we can start this early April.

My wife and I ate dinner here two Fridays ago, whilst staying for the weekend in Dundee. We were seated at a table which was squeezed onto the edge of the bar in this small restaurant - not a big deal... we're just glad that we weren't the other couple that were seated very close to the female toilet! We... More

Having gone off the previous incarnation of this restaurant in Wellbank, but loving Mexican food, we tried Rancho Pancho in Commercial Street for the first time as a birthday treat for me. The central location is not a problem with limited street parking and a multi-story car park right opposite. We loved the cheerful but intimate atmosphere of the place,... More

I visit the restaurant quite frequently as my husband and I both love the food here! The menu selection is quite nice and everything I have tried so far has been absolutely great. Rancho Pancho is a must-visit restaurant in Dundee!

Rancho pancho is my favourite place to go in Dundee. I think I've been around 5 times in the last two years since moving here. Staff are always friendly and the food is superb, we always order a massive starter and share a main course if I go with my girlfriend as it's all so good!
