My hubby and I got Al Pastor tacos. They were amazing and super inexpensive! The restaurant is just a little hole in the wall but it is obviously a favorite of locals and visitors as it was incredibly busy. The line was very long but it went quick, we ended up waiting about 20 minutes and the food was worth... More

The food was delicious! I really enjoyed the stuffed avocado with mushrooms and my husband loved the tacos al pastor. Beware that it can get really crowded so you should expect to wait at peak times. The restaurant doesn't have very good atmosphere and it can be really hot. Despite that, our group voted this the best meal of our... More

This is a definite must go to and try!! It does get busy and service can be a bit chaotic, but worth it. Stick to the Al Pastor and you wont be disappointed. Other tacos were good too...but damn that al pastor 🤤🤤

This is a small restaurant with indoor dining options and tables street side. I recommend eating outside, despite the busy sidewalk. Inside is a bit stuffy due to the cooking. The food is fresh, fast, and very reasonable. 2 people can easily eat there and have a few drinks for about 15.00 USD. Highly recommend!

Put your name on the list. Wait in line. Just do it. The US needs a Pancho's STAT! Get the Al Pastor - no cheese AND the quesadilla with the peppers and onions. And the agua fresca. Your night has been made.

I made a point to eat here our first night in PV and another night too. The tacos Al Pastor, quesadilla al pastor and the torta are amazing. Tons of food for super cheap. You may have to wait for a table but it's worth it. Also wait for a table on the sidewalk since it'll be a lot cooler... More

Had a great experience here. Had to wait a bit for a table but were able to order some great margaritas while waiting and do some people watching. Ordered too much food so talk to waiter about how many tacos to order for your group. Restaurant was crowded the entire time we were there so expect to wait because it... More

What a great meal at unbelievable prices. Place starts to line up before it opens at 6 and at times can be 40 to 50 people deep. Order the taco el pastor by the plate full. Comes with different sauces to try on your taco but the taste isnout of this world. My kids waited a year to come back... More

Oh my what a happening place. It is very busy, don't be surprised if you have to wait a while to eat. I thought the food was as good as the fun atmosphere and staff. I'd love to go again next visit. The staff was very kind with my poor attempts to order and use Spanish and that made it... More
