An employee of a local housecleaning service advised us to check out this place...she said locals love it and indicated it was the best Mexican food found along the Lake Tahoe drive. "Las Panchitas" was looked up in the Spanish dictionary; it means "large bellies."...More

Had relaxed lunch on the patio. Beautiful, two minute walk from lake. Very welcoming, in a busy town, never felt rushed. Good margarita and really good food. You are not going to leave hungry for sure.

Not a super fancy place, but the portions were huge and the food was good. It's a good place to grab lunch if you are going to be shopping or exploring around Kings Beach.

...and great sauce too. Portion size is ample, as expected. More meat than expected on our fajitas all in a spicy but not-too-hot sauce. Across the road from the lake, but no real view. You’d better get that elsewhere, or bring her with you.

Spacious street-front patio with peek-a-boo lake view, across from King’s Beach. Wide selection of authentic Mexican food - generous portions, reasonable prices. (Beats the more expensive venue up the street, unless you’re on an expense account)

Las Panchitas is where we go when we want good Mexican food. We like being known. We like the casual atmosphere and the friendly staff. The lunch prices are very, very reasonable.

This is absolutely my favorite place for Mexican food. Seating indoors or out, pretty much every table has a lake view. Food is excellent and so is the service. I have been going to Las Panchitas for over 25 years and when you can walk...More
