Located on Main St in Tannersville, Pancho Villa's offers great friendly service, moderate prices and great tasting food. Salsa and chips are great too. Full bar, parking on street, usually not a problem. Recommend the black bean soup as appetizer. Prices run $12 and up.

We had a very friendly and helpful waiter. I ordered the enchiladas and they were so-so. The salsa and guac were yummy. I would say overall it was average Mexican food.

The chicken with mole was extremely tender. The service was fast. It was very crowded but service was prompt. They brought plenty of chips and salsa which was fairly plain. It was a good place for a decent priced meal which is hard to find in Tannersville.

Really the only very good restaurant in town, one of the few successful businesses. Good margaritas, the best salsa anywhere, great chips, and a wide selection of good entrees. Unlike anyplace else it's always busy.

Really fun spot to eat and have frozen drinks and fresh guacamole. Service can be slow when crowded. The long wait can be hard with kids but kids just love this restaurant. Plan a trip on a slow night and all is perfect!

Never had a bad meal here and visit often. The margaritas are strong, the food excellent and the service good! If you aren't feeling the pull of the Mexican meals, they serve what I think is the best burger on the mountaintop. Chips and amazing salsa with every meal too.

The Salsa and Chips are unbelievable - keeps us coming back. Great guacamole, good portions sizes. I've never had a bad meal from there. Family friendly, reasonable prices and friendly staff makes this place to eat.
