Party-hearty Buford highway cantina serves great margaritas and familiar Tex-Mex fare. – The Scene
The festive atmosphere, emphasized by merry-go-round horses suspended from the ceiling, is the keynote of this easygoing, low-key Buford Highway cantina. Equally popular with local college students and families from nearby neighborhoods, Pancho's is able to distance itself from the buzz of the nearby highway. Service is fast and friendly.
Pancho's dishes out familiar Tex-Mex fare and also makes the occasional rewarding foray into more authentic ground. The chips are lighter and the accompanying salsa more robust than you'll find at the average cantina. Fajitas might be industry standard, but they're accompanied by a warm parcel of tasty flour tortillas. Combination dinners offer few surprises, but the more authentic carnita dinner--chunks of marinated, twice-cooked pork--is full of roasted flavor and caramelized sweetness. Limit yourself to one pitcher of margaritas unless you've brought a designated driver.
best mex in town – I love this place. They have the best atmosphere for a mexican place and the food is so good. The steak burrito is the best thing I've ever had. Great margaritas too that are definitely not weak.
My favorite Mexican ANYWHERE!!! – I live 30 minutes away, and I often make the trip to Atlanta solely for the purpose of eating at Pancho's.
Their cheese dip is to die for. And their regular salsa is great, too!
I always get their chicken quesadillas. Unlike most Mexican restaurants, the chicken here has tons of flavor. Pancho's costs a little bit more than most Mexican joints, but the portions are huge and I always take enough home with me for lunch the next day.
If the weather permits, I'd recommend sitting outside on the patio. Sure, the only view is of the highway, but it's still fun!
Best Outdoor Seating! – Pancho's has the BEST porch to sit and have a few of their great margaritas with friends! The food is good, the service is good, and overall, you're gonna have a great time!
I loved the Margaritas! – The chicken fajita is excellent. I loved the cheese the put on the nachos and after just one margarita I was feeling good. The musicians play requests. We requested "La Bamba" You've gotta see for yourself.
