I'm from Southern California and normally Nebraska Mexican food is not that good. This place did not disappoint.

Pancho Villa is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Nebraska! Their food is fresh and full of flavor and we have never been disappointed! However, today's visit revealed that they are becoming more popular as result of being sited by the newspaper as one of the top ten Mexican restaurants in Lincoln. The food has not suffered as result... More

What a great place. Food is excellent service was little slow but good. Prices are fair for food you get and the margaritas are excellent. We will certainly be back next time we are in Lincoln.

Not a big flashy place or even the best location, but food was authentic and delicious and the price was reasonable. I had the shrimp & steak burrito, and they didn't skimp on either. Our waitress was prompt and very friendly. I'd eat there again when I'm back in Lincoln.

We were looking for a Mexican restaurant after the Husker game on the north side of town. Although it was quiet when we walked in the door the restaurant soon filled up. Everyone in my group enjoyed the food. It was fun and different. The only reason I took one star off is because the waitstaff was very novice. They... More

I've had a lot of different Mexican food some authentic and some Americanized. This little restaurant wins the prize. It's authentic and incredibly tasty. It's owned and operated by a delightful couple, Eli and Lisa Santana. They have been in business for over 5 years. Do not be deceived or discouraged by the industrial setting of this restaurant. The food... More

This is a favorite spot for us to eat. I moved to Nebraska from Texas, where you can't walk ten paces without running into a Mexican restaurant. That means there's heavy competition for good Mexican food in Texas, so I became a connoisseur. When I first moved to Lincoln, I was introduced to La Paz as the premiere Mexican restauran... More

Went there twice. First time we went in, the service was extremely slow, but the food was good and the Top Shelf Maragarita (spelled "Top Self" on the menu - ha ha) was as good as any in town. But we went in the second time and the service was even slower. For an out-of-the-way location and good but not... More

Starving after a big football game in Lincoln, we were told to try this Little place out. We arrived about 30 minutes before closing with a party of 10...and they graciously said "Come on in!". Thank Goodness!!!!! The food was fresh, hot and flavorful!! Well worth looking for the place as it's located in a strip mall. Don't miss this... More
