The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because sometimes you have a longish wait to get your food. Other than that, I've never,had a bad meal there. And I go pretty regularly.

Amazing selections of buritos, tacos, nachos, etc and available in vegetarian. Before or after lunch hour to avoid the long queue. Huge servings value for money. Nice variety of sauces to try. So check it out and you'll wanna come back again for more.

This place has the yummiest burrito I have ever eaten. They have genuinely good authentic taste, and great ingredients. With first bite, you can tell that there are no additives/preservatives added to the ingredients. And the best part? No americanization of food happening here! Numero Uno!

Cafeteria style service so you can see selections when ordering. Gets very crowded during peak hours, so we like to find a table and then place our orders. Kids love this place too.

Whenever we visit family in San Francisco, we make a beeline for Pancho Villa. Service is always friendly and efficient even with the long line. The food is always fresh. Anything you order hits the spot!! This place is always in our food checklist. Place is also very clean.

This place makes me think I am in Mexico. Informal. You sit on leather covered wooden stools and they bring your entre to you. A variety of aqua frescas in big glass jars on the serving line. Great churros. Really fast service and autentica comida!

When you want fresh ingredients and generous servings of straightforward, good Mexican food, this is the place. Pancho Villa is usually busy, but efficient in providing your order. I suggest take out, but sitting in the restaurant in San Mateo is also convenient. Seating is not very comfortable, but the food never disappoints.
