This Panchero's is clean and well maintained. The food is good. Very much like every other Panchero's. Not authentic mexican, but good americanized burritos.

I have to admit that when my coworker said to eat here, I had my doubts. When I walked in I am thinking to myself that this is like that other burrito chain. But when I got up there to order, I noticed the fresh-pressed, fresh grilled tortillas. Then I noticed the carnitas with salsa verde. Add a little cheese,... More

I'm hoping that the young woman who helped us was having a bad day, because if that is how she always treats/greets customers, she should not be in that position. It wasn't too busy, but they weren't too quick either. I won't complain about time taken to freshly press the tortillas for the burritos, because they were good and worth... More

Very fresh and healthy ingredients to choose from to customize your own burrito. Good service and employees are always friendly. Good place to satisfy that occasional burrito craving. Will keep going back.

I am not only in love with their food but the ankeny panchero service. I have never had a bad experience. Clearly some people are a little uptight and picky but the workers are nice and would gladly spread meat or add extra toppings if you ask. Yes the prices can be high but it is the food and friendly... More

It was ok, but I found it bland and not very authentic. The veggies are nice but there wasn't anything special or memorable so I won't be back.

The food here is so bland water has more flavor. Taco Bell might have a better selection of products. They don't take American Express. Des Monies is a fairly large city right? and a Place doesn't take Amex?

This location has a smaller dining area than the West Des Moines location, but it is often less packed with people, too. Many times we have chosen to go to the Ankeny location for that very reason. The service, food quality, cleanliness, is all the same as other locations in this chain.

Thank B B
