Someone had made a comment about this restaurant and I was uncertain - a lot of it seemed like a stereotype from the outside. But my husband wanted Mexican food and so I said sure. I'm so glad we went! They definitely have food to cater to a Minnesota palate, but they have a variety of other dishes as well.... More

I had the beef burrito dinner, and the flavors were great, but there was hardly any ground beef in it. Bummed cause I do love this place normally. Wait staff is wonderful.

Art visiting MIA we stopped on Nicollet, in walking distance from the art institute. The service was prompt. And it took her order and came back several times to make sure everything is going OK. The enchiladas were good. Food was fresh and served quickly.

The two waitresses, both named Abbi, were very attentive and patient with our large group. We ordered many various Mexican foods. I had the Tortilla Soup, which was not only excellent, but filling because it was... More

One of my all time favorite staples in uptown is Pancho Villa. I have held my birthday dinner here for years. The spinning wheel, Mexican karaoke, drink specials and the staff. They are so popular that over the years they have expanded. When you walk in the doors, I always ask to be seated on that side. That is where... More

First thing: Food was very good. I thought they were very reasonable priced and like I say, it was very good. But the bad news is that they were trying to overcharge us. They hand us a drink menu that says Tecate is $4.39 and get the bill and they are charging $6.69. Jarritos was priced at $3+, get the... More

Visited Pancho Villa at 7p last Friday and was very disappointed with the overall experience: -Despite the restaurant being mostly empty upon our arrival, we were seated RIGHT next to another table that was already occupied for some reason -We were not told that the only Margarita's that were 2 for 1 were the house Margarita's, so we expected our...
