Pancho Villa's Mexican Grill Restaurant & Entertainment Ratings and Reviews
The hostesses are not welcoming or professional. We had reservations and the table the restaurant selected for us was uncomfortable for our party size. When asked to move to another table the hostess rolled her eyes and asked us to wait. We waited while she sat other parties. By the way, they had plenty of open tables. Horrible welcome service.
The Brunch was very nice. We had reservations and our seats were excellent for the show. The food was good and there was a great variety to choose from. We had been there several times for the dinner show and enjoyed it but this was our first time for the brunch. Top quality musicians.
Food was good music was amazing however our server victor neglected our party a lot. He would take care of some of my party but would refill the champagne to the other half and would forget to pick up plates. I constantly had to be looking for him to come
To our table. And to top it off he didn't want to split the check for the part of 15 we had. For dinner time the service is amazing though IVAN is amazing.
This was one of the worst experience I've had. (our first time at Pancho Villas ) I made reservations to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday I really was disappointed with whole evening. The website was deciving. I wish I would have been made aware before I made a reservation that there were only two shows too choose from and after the 1st showing my party would have to pay our check, leave the restaurant then come back in to see if we could be reseated in order to continue our celebration. They only offered a "special" menu the food was expensive and tasteless it tasted like it came out of a can. The beans and rice looked like you could see thru it, smeared on the plate. Our server could not remember our order, she was overwhelmed. The only good thing to say was, the music was lovely; so that's what I paid $350.00 for. I will never return to that restaurant nor recommend it.
While the service wasn't the greatest, the live entertainment more than made up for it! The Mariachi was PHENOMENAL and the other band that played when the Mariachi was taking a break was FANTASTIC! The vibe was consistently upbeat and jovial. The food is traditional Mexican and it will satisfy your craving!
1. Hostess at the front desk with glasses, not very personable,
2. We brought a cake and she told us that they do not allow us to store our cakes in the fridge, and if we did that they are not responsible if anything happens to it,
3. We had a group of 20+ with one hostess tending to our needs
4. They never told us that we had to pay for refills on soda until after a few people ordered more than a few which personally I think is a rip off, so we ended up getting water after that
We had an awesome time as usual! The hostess gave us the best seat in the house and the waiter, Victor, kept the table clear and the champagne flowing! The entertainment was awesome, despite the fact that the Mariachis were up late the previous night. This was easily one of the best ways to start the new year!
We made reservations with plenty of time showed up and had to wait almost 45 minutes to be seated. Then they forgot we were there... worse part is they charge for Soda refills and all the food that was not a skillet was cold... if we weren't all so hungry and tired of the long waits we would have complained on the spot!!! The waiters were kind and helpful but the girls at the host desk were non attentive and pompous!!! $30 for 6 Glasses of Soda w one refill each... wow!!! Maybe at a high end restaurant but not at Pancho Villas... ugh. Horrible experience!!!
Waiter did not want to separate checks,. And was rude , and I had to tell him no need for that. He also was saying we NEEDED to leave the exact tip the the receipt said. A tip is by choice, not what he wants.. we always had to ask a different server for stuff, we never could find him.... very unprofessional!!!
We had a large party of 17 people so we where seated 45 mins later then our reservation time. 2 plates where not correct : meat was given to our vegan daughter and cold plate was served to my sister. We ran out of chips and had to keep asking for more napkins, chips, salsa and drinks. We enjoyed the music and drinks.
Overall great live entertainment and good restaurant service (drinks are made well and the food was delicious). ONE MAJOR ISSUE: We tipped the waitress 15%, she returned to our table suggesting we didn't tip her enough. She demanded we tip 20% by pointing it out on the receipt. We gave her another $10 and she asked if we needed $4 back. After the embarrassment, we asked her to keep the change, well since she felt she earned a bigger tip than initially provided. That was rude and unprofessional. If your waitstaff is expecting 20% or more in tips (regardless of the service) perhaps you should consider adding this item to your menu, website, social media and the entrance. Just a thought...
We had a great time celebrating my mother's birthday. The entertainment was great the service was great and the food was delicious. However the only thing I would suggest is making sure your servers advise your guests that there is a charge for refills after 6. We had no idea and to be honest I don't think I know of a place that does charge. Other than that it was great. Thanks
I traveled to this location from LA. It took me about an hour to get there, but it was totally worth the drive. The occasion was for my dads 72nd birthday. I was looking for great food and entertainment, specifically Mariachi. Pancho Villa delivered exactly what I was looking for. It was a small party of five and were seated close to the stage. The Mariachi was great. They interacted w/the crowd and played 2 songs that I requested. The food was better than your average buffet brunch. I will definitely return to this place. If I could change one thing it would be to have one closer to me.
