“Still craving the tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Yum,yum,yum. So simple yet so tasty. Couldn't get enough. The prices are so reasonable that it makes it easy, and fun, to try different kinds. Quick friendly service. Want some right now!

“Yummy tacos .. Awesome service...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Wanted to make sure we didn't leave PV without getting some tacos and decided on panchos after reading the reviews. It did not disappoint. Lots of options and tacos were small enough to order a variety of them without feeling guilty that we each had 6 tacos. Salsa variety was good and I appreciated that not all of the, were spicy. Meat was tended and well seasoned. Staff was friendly. We got lucky and got a table without having to wait. So glad we went. Probably some of the best tacos we've ever had. Ps our bill was less that $15 for 12 tacos and 3 sodas.

“Outstanding Tacos, Don't miss this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Went here the second to last day in PV. It was everything we had been told. Great Al Pastor and the prices were very reasonable. I think four tacos went for 480 pesos, just about a dollar a taco. It was delicious. The food was fresh, the service was good and it's in a great location on the south side of the Malecon. Don't miss out on this place. Great price and even better food.

“The gold Standard for street tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

There is always a line from the minute they open until they shut down for the evening. That says a lot. Quite simply these are the best street tacos (and assorted other Mexican treats) in Puerto Vallarta - maybe in Mexico! Sushi style ordering sheet. Don't be offended if your server has some questions for you. They want to make sure you're happy and don't commit the most common error - ordering way, way too much food. It's so inexpensive you'll be tempted to order far more than you can possibly eat. Luckily, leftovers make for great late night drunken munching to help avoid the most common beach illness - hangover flu.

Food is fresh. Prepared in very clean surroundings right in front of you. The prices are almost embarrassingly inexpensive - you could never eat $10 worth of food here. Maybe the last great food deal in Vallarta. Worth the wait. Only open evenings.
