“ignore the bad reviews - i liked it a lot!”
Reviewed 20 January 2011

maybe something major has changed since the previous (and pretty terrible) reviews, but i thought pancho's was great! actually, i've been in seoul for nearly a week now and i've only liked 2 of the 9 restaurants i've tried.

i got the veggie "fajita pita" (minus the dairy) and it was delicious. great portion size (and by that, i mean not too much) and a ymmy mix of veggies. the complimentary chips and salsa were really good too. my husband kept talking about how good the chips were... esp after he had his third cass beer. ;)

he also enjoyed his meal and i really liked the frozen lime margaritas. his coworkers want to go out this weekend and i'm keeping my fingers crossed that we go to panchos. in addition to the good food, the wait staff is really nice and funny, and they have a pool table. oh, and they also have the MOST hilarious names for their shots... and absolutely no censorship for the drink names! if you go, you must look at the shot menu for a good laugh. (unless you are a boring conservative... and then you should look at the shot menu after a couple beers!) ;)

btw, the other restaurant that i liked THE BEST isn't listed in tripadvisor yet, but it was spectacular: "Honest - Loving Hut" in itaewon ... be sure to go there too!
here are the directions to 'Honest' Loving Hut: Itaewon Station, Line 6, Exit 1. (same side of the road as hamilton hotel) Walk straight (westward) about 2 minutes. Turn right, into the alleyway right before 'ABC Mart.' (ABC mart has a bright, vertical, yellow sign) Walk part way up the hill and it will be on your left, on the 2nd floor. (very small sign that says "loving hut" in red letters)

“Depressing”
Reviewed 18 April 2010

It's the taste of sadness. I have given this place a good handful of tries and have always left less happy than when I entered.

Reviewed 6 April 2008

The service is slow. And when I mean slow, I mean SLOW! Orders are continually mixed up. Mediocre is too good a word for this restaraunt
