I ate at Dons every day for lunch for years! I work close by so it was convinient for me. I never got a meal that wasn't fresh and delishious! Very affordable too! They have the Mexican drinks like orchata and fruit waters you won't find in the Americanized Mexican places! Their sauces are pretty hot, even the milder ones!... More

The food is delicious. Four visits and not a bad meal was had by my spouse or me. Guacamole plus four types of salsa (I wish that there was one without cilantro) on the salsa bar. Ambiance? Zero. But the great food more than makes up for that.

We come here several times a month. A family owned business known mostly by the locals. A fabulous treat of authentic Mexican food. Quite a large selection, including beers and soft drinks, mostly Mexican of course. A great experience for all. Very friendly atmosphere and staff. Reasonable prices and large portions. Help yourself to the chips and many sauces. Happy... More

After having excellent tacos here a year or so ago, we recently returned to Don Pancho's. While the salsas from the self-serve salsa bar are really outstanding, the tacos were really not great. Carnitas were tender but flavorless and frankly, looked weird. The al pastor was in too much sauce, and the barbacoa was unlike any barbacoa i've ever seen.... More

I had a client that worked at the restaurant. He brought me tamales, rice and a stuffed pepper. Oh my goodness, it was so good. These folks are from Mexico and the food is authentic. My teenage son and his friends (some of them Mexican) enjoy going to eat there after school. Everyone loves it. Only negative thing is that... More

I have eaten Mexican food all over the country and in other countries. This is probably the most authentic Mexican restraunt I have been to in the area. The food is pretty good. The service is decent. The portions are big. And the prices are really good. The one thing that turns me off about this place is the restrooms.... More
