Panchos

Postby L-A » 03 Nov 2005, 18:49

Panchos is a stall selling Mexican food. It's open between 11.30am- 11pm Monday to Saturday, it's open on Sunday too, but I can't remember when.

It's on Minghua Rd, near Fuguo Rd (#197 rings a bell).

Went there for the first time about half an hour ago. Chicken burrito is delicious and just 100NT. They have some outdoor seating. And beer. Will definitely be going back!

My wife goes there often but I haven't been there yet. The owner also runs an outdoor version on the main strip in Kending. Only on weekends I think. Again, I've never tried it but it sure smells good. They are smoking busy too.

You pay restaurant prices but you are eating on the street. The food may be good, but it doesn't justify their high prices.

It's gone now.


It's a yucky Chinese boring common fast-food-box stall now.

I 've always like Pancho's. The meat tasted salty and really oily and the tacos tasted like it's Filipino' style. But still, where else Could you get Mexican food around Kaoh? Aside from Amy's Tex-Mex and perhaps Hola and Teresa's, Pancho's a good alternative for Fast Food Mexican.

Freakin Shame it's gone. I blame the closed-minded people of kaoh...it's a freaking tragedy there aren't many culturally diverse foods in the city.

They are still operating, but under a different name at a different location. They are on Heti road about 500 meters north of Yucheng Road, accross from Heti Park. It's now called "The Villa." Same good old Mexican menu items and more. They have decent pizza and they serve beer and other drinks, too. They operated both restaurants for a while but they finally closed down Panchos and stuck with "The Villa."

I think it's worth checking it out. Pm me if you need better directions.

NT$100 for a burrito and you consider this restaurant prices? :lol: That's like less than two quid! God almighty! I shudder to think of what you consider to be a restaurant!

They're Burrito is really good.
I enjoyed the Caesar Salad one, the Grilled Beef one, and the basic ground beef one (well, not so much).


Yeah, it's good for 100-140 nt, but I usually also order those taco rolls, which are pretty good.

I agree it's fast food prices which I like, pretty decent and fair.

It's really too bad that they moved. Their old location was cheaper, the service was quicker, and the food was better, IMO.
Eh? What's the point?

My husband and I ate there a year ago when we were back in Taiwan for a wedding. The woman who was making the food had a cigarette hanging out of her mouth the whole time and had dirty fingernails (never mind the fact that she wasn't wearing any gloves). Needless to say, I lost my appetite. :s
