I was out on a business trip in Monroe Wisconsin and was taken to Pancho and Lefty's for lunch. We actually got there kind of late 1:1 30-ish and the place was still crowded and we had to wait about 15 minutes to get seated....More

Very good food, interesting atmosphere, but it is too small often crowded and you often have to wait to get in. ONce in you might be sitting "on top" of the group eating next to you.

Pancho and Lefty's specializes in Tex-Mex, but has a wide variety of foods including burgers, burritos, BBQ, mac and cheese, and more! Every dish I have tried has been excellent, and the service is top notch as well. The restaurant is very small, so be...More

This small restaurant is the best in town. They smoke their own meats, making for an excellent meal. I love their brisket, and my husband loves their ribs. They also have excellent homemade mac and cheese that is some of the best I have ever...More

Go to Pancho and Lefty's website, you will not find it on Trip Advisor.
In response to smiley22sf: I agree with the owner of this place. I don't think it is fair to write a poor review of a place you didn't intend to dine at because of the smoked meat aroma. We had dinner there for the first time last night, and it was absolutely wonderful. I will be writing a good review very soon.

This is as small restaurant that packs people in. It has a small bar and you usually have to wait for a table. You can leave your number and they will call when a table opens up.The food is unbelievable. It's a place where other restaurant owners go to eat.
