Their tamales are very good. The food bar up front has a lot of standard favorites (enchilladas, burritos, chili relenos, tacos) and some not-so-standard dishes that are hot and flavorful. Try a little of everything. Watch your hands, because the plates can be hot. In the dining room is the salad bar with salsa (try the corn & black bean salsa), tomatoes, sour cream, pico de gallo and all the fixings. The bean soup on the salad bar is definitely worth trying. I like it. Their soups aren't the same worn-out thing you get at most food bars... but rather someone made them who knows about making good soup. Table service is prompt and courteous. Be sure to raise the Mexican flag at your table for service. For desert, ask your waiter for the sopapillas (free with your meal). They fry them up fresh and hot for you and serve them with a bottle of honey. Excellent, fluffy and crisp... with a little powdered sugar these things would be a hit for breakfast in New Orleans. They also have a small desert bar in the dining room, with puddings & cookies and other small desert treats. The sopapillas are not to be missed though. Highly recommended for a quick sit-down quality meal with your family. For this buffet price, you can't do better for wholesome Mexican food.
My family really likes eating here. There is always lots of hot food available. The bakery items are hot and delicious. The rolls are especially good.
Our family just loves Pancho's. We've drove for over an hour just to eat at Pancho's before. it's worth it!
