Pancho's has to be the oldest Mexican restaurant in the Memphis area! The original restaurant is still operating at the original location in West Memphis. The Memphis location at Summer and White Station is my favorite Mexican restaurant in the MidSouth. The service has always been excellent. They are famous for their dips and chips. So much that they sell... More

I hadn't been to the original Pancho's restaurant in years! Tonight was like going back in time! The famous Pancho's sauce was on the table in a squeeze bottle and I put it on ostrow everything! I love that they brought you salsa and cheese dip to go with it! They really should make their chips from scratch though. I... More

Enjoyable family dinner in a fun atmosphere. And cheese dip comes with every entree--but you might end up buying more--it's so delicious. My husband and I both ordered combination plates to try a great variety, and we liked everything.

My wife and I ate lunch here Sunday after church. It had been several years since we had eaten here. The food and service were still the same- EXCELLENT. We started with their fresh guacamole dip to go with the cheese dip and salsa already on our table with the crisp tortillas. Was served in a crispy small tortilla shell... More

Love, love, love Panchos. Chips, salsa and cheese dip at your table with every meal. The green dressing is to die for. Been coming since I was a kid.

Pancho's is one of those local joints that you just gotta try if you're a fan of going the "lesser known" route when travelling. The location is a bit on the questionable side, but it's safe (go before dark!). Once inside, you'll see an amazing amount of tilework that is really one of the coolest things about the place. Service... More

We went to Pancho's Tuesday evening in a hard rain and they still had a good crowd. The place is big and I like the decor. The waitress was good and brought us two kinds of dip, the salsa and the wonderful cheese dip they are famous for. We ordered a Fajita Quesadilla and Beef Nachos. The Quesadilla was average... More

We were invited to a company gathering at this restaurant. We thought it was strange to have a gathering at a Mexican restaurant in a city known for its BBQ. Our misgivings were well-founded. The first impression of the place was of fake- the adobe walls or Southwest look was painted on everyplace in this run of the mill strip... More

OMG! After moving away from Memphis, I long, no, I crave Pancho's original cheese dip. Nothing made comes close to it. Need Kroger's to start putting it in ALL their stores across the country.
