Authentic Mexican dishes that I have not seen in any other Mexican restaurants in town. Prepared by the owner with pride and love, this food is really tasty. The salsa bar is a nice touch, but beware the habanero sauce - HOT!!

It's kind of dirty-looking inside and cluttered. The chips and salsas are nothing special. The food looked good but the birria taco didn't have a lot of flavor. The shrimp taco was OK.

There were flies on the inside windows and a hair in the salsa. Service was slow and there was no offer of chip or water refills. Food was average.

What a nice place! Traveling through Tucson, we were invited to try the Pancho Villa Grill by old friends. Good service; good food; we did not find the prices to be too high. Give it a try!

Good food, but over priced. I can get similarly good food from other Mexican fast food places like the Taco Shop Co.

My boyfriend and I have eaten at Pancho's several times, and every time the food has been excellent. I love their green corn tamales, and my boyfriend always gets the carne asada. It is much better than most other Mexican places we have tried in...More
