“Best Quesadilla in town! ”
Review of Pancho's Burritos

Pancho's Burritos
Ranked #289 of 2,421 Restaurants in Manchester
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$3 - US$8
Cuisines: Mexican
Description: Panchos Burritos started out on the streets as do all good taco stands in Mexico. After living in Mexico for some years Mexico City born Enrique and his Manchester born wife Colette decided to bring the taste of Mexico back to England. They started their own Burrito stand catering for friends parties and music festivals. At one of these festivals they met German born Klaus who when seeing the burrito stand realised it was a brilliant concept. This created Panchos Burritos. Based in Manchester city centre we have two market stalls in the busy Arndale Centre market and have been going strong there since January 2010. Enrique tries to keep it real using recipes passed on by his family in Mexico City. Fresh food is cooked on the stall every morning and by lunchtime the smell of delicious tasty Mexican food wafts around the marketplace. Meats are slow roasted in the oven then added to delicious freshly made salsas to be served with rice or on a burrito.

We love Panchos!! There are 2 stalls in the Arndale Market both are ace. With 6 or more choices of meat and fillings and all levels of spicy, what more could you need! If you haven't been you haven't lived! Only sad thing is the lack of seating! The food market gets real busy so can be a hustle gettin a seat for 4!

Me and my partner decided to have quick lunch to break Boxing Day shopping madness. We arrived late around 4p.m. and most popular fillings were gone, i mean pork with cactus and chicken with chipolte. I guess it must be busy day judging by crowds in Arndale. I had pork with lime tostadas. Now, i need to say it was first time i tried mexican food and wasnt sure what it is. Staff let us try few topings if its not to spicy and it was mild. I enjoyed it a lot but quick word of warning to inexperienced that it was a bit hard to eat cause tostadas is like bigger torrtila crisp with toppings on top of it. My partner had burritos with pork with lime topping, she couldnt stop making happy noises how good it was. Overall good street food. So definitely will come back to try burritos.

Me and a friend felt a pang of hunger on a visit to the Arndale Market, my friend said "what do you fancy? (as there was huge choice of stalls) I said "what about Mexican" He said "why not" so we wondered over to Panchos Burritos.
The chap behind the counter welcomed us with a smile then gave us little taster pots to try.
I chose the pulled pork with chilli. The chap immediately set to work building the Burrito (which was just amazing to watch)
It contained the Pork, re-fried beans, salsa, Guacamole, etc. (how he got it all in I don't know?)
It tasted absolutely fantastic! and washed down with a Mexican beer.
Street food at its best!

Pancho's tries to be a bit different from totally generic GB Mexican, chipotle seasonings, cactus leaves in the stew etc and for this reason it gets the nudge over Bar Burrito (you get more bang for your buck here). The spicy sauce is spicy, the staff are friendly and the food is better than an M and S prawn sarnie, so all good really....
