    I always have amazing food here. The one downfall I made reservations (which I always make) when I tell the girls at the desk they always seem confused. I says name & how many in my party & these girls gave each other a dirty look then still seemed confused. This first impression is unsettling but the rest of the staff issue amazingly helpful. Overall great food but I still wish I could've skipped the front desk experience

    Dined on 3/30/2014
    From the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out, we were greeted, poured over, taken care of and saluted. Instead of the whole band celebrating individually at each table, an individual Mariachi singer went to each and had a singer there, celebrating as a whole restaurant, but with a single table singer. What a great focused and expanded idea! This place is exceptional in service, food preparation and customer attentiveness. I will and already have recommended this place.

    My family and I went to Pancho Villas for my parents anniversary. We had a great time and had the greatest service. Luciano was our server and he made sure we had everything we needed, he was very polite and we did not have to ask for anything he made sure we had our glasses full and table clean. We loved the mariachi too but we thought they took too many breaks. Food was delicious! Great selection and great food! Thank you for making my parents' special day more special!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    We went to Pancho Villas on a Sunday morning for brunch to celebrate my parents birthday. We had reservations so we had no wait time. The food and ambience was great no complaints there. However the service could have been better. Our waitress had a bad attitude since the moment we sat down, she did not smile and looked very unhappy to be working. she attended to our basic needs but was not friendly at all. The biggest downfall is that when we paid she did not honor our coupon because she said she did not see it. So she wanted to charge me twice and the refund would take into place within a couple of days. this would not be a problem if it was just a few dollars however our bill was over 100.00 and needed my money. not our fault!

    WE live in the Valley but a friend is on that side of town and suggested we meet at Pancho Villas with the kids for brunch. WE spent 4 hours lounging, laughing, EATING and being amazed by the sound that came from the wonderfully tuned instruments and VOICES of the all male band (3 shows). We loved the showroom style seating which gave the kids a great view of the main stage and the singers even roamed the audience, giving an up close an personal serenade to our table. THANKS FOR THE FUN PV!!

    The food was great, the entertainment was mind blowing. I appreciated how the waiters would come to make sure that everything was fine and I wish all the restaurants were like this. The only thing that ruined the night was the fact that our menus didn't have the pricing on the drinks and for the guacamole being made at your table. I wish the waiter had at least warned us about the guacamole bowl costing us to be made at our table. Would I return here? Maybe until, I hear or see that they made the changes to where you can see all the prices for what you order then yea but until then im gonna stay away.

    Pancho Villa's is a very good restaurant. It has a brunch with a great variety of excellent food. The mariachis are top notch entertainers with great musicians and vocalists. The only drawback is their selection of music. For most customers of Mexican descent I think they would like to hear music of popular composers like Jose Alfredo Jimenez, Cucu Sanchez and Agustin Lara. The mariachis seemed to cater to customers celebrating special occasions. That's great for the celebrating customers, but a detriment to the other customers, making their music session too short. So I can only recommend this restaurant to people celebrating special occasions.

    Booked a week early for Cinco de Mayo brunch. The morning of, I got a call while I was getting ready and didn't answer it. We proceeded to the restaurant where we were told that we didn't have a reservation! Seems that since I didn't contact them to confirm my reservation, we were cancelled! The irony is that there were plenty of tables available, even for those that didin't have reservation. Ok, so for a party of five that booked a week early, they gave us a booth fit for about three at best- REALLY?? Who does that? The waiter was gracious and quickly removed plates as we did the Mexican hat dance every time someone in our party wanted to get up to the buffet. The saving grace was the champagne and the wonderful food and the great music.

    We do not live in the area, had to find a spot to meet family members. Something along the 10 freeway. I plugged in this information and knew my brother loved Mex food, I read the reviews and was sold. I was a bit nervous after looking at the street view, location isn't everything, but take the drive!!! it's worth it! We all loved our dishes very much! From the chips and yummy house salsa, to the guacamole made at our table-that was outstanding by the way, to the Suiza sauce, best I've ever had. Bottom line, make it to this gem! We went for an early supper, so we missed the evening entertainment which I am sure would have wowed us as well. We will be back next time we're in area, amazing! Thank you to the staff for a great experience:)

    This was my first time visiting Pancho Villas. We had a party of 20 for my mom's birthday. The ambiance is nice and the food was SUPERB. Our waitress was more than excellent. She was courteous and on top of it (refills, constantly checking to make sure we were okay.) The mariachis were FANTASTIC but a bit too loud. All the kids in our area began crying once they started playing. The price for brunch on the sunday we went was $22/adult (of course prices are always subject to change) but the website has coupons for $4 or $2 depending on when you go. Keep in mind that only champagne is included with brunch and it is endless, other drinks are charged at about $3 and up. Our whole party was very impressed. I do highly Recommend!
