WARNING: Pancho's does not accept reservations via Open Table. I found out the hard way when I called on Saturday to confirm the reservation I made using Open Table. They had no record of my request and informed me they don't use OT anymore.

And, they were booked so ... be careful if you plan to go to Pancho's in Manhattan Beach.

We took our 7 year old & 3 year old for lunch on Sunday. They loved it. Biggest bummer of the meal was the $17 they charged us for my son's plate of "nachos" (cheese and chips). Im not sure how a Mexican restaurant with a Kids Menu (that has pizza on it) does not offer a kids portion of nachos (on or off menu). Our waiter did bring him a scoop of ice cream with chocolate sauce that comes with the Kids Menu meals...for $17 he should have.

Lovely courtyard seating and yummy Mexican food, what could be better? The small side of guacamole was not so good, but the waiter took it back and removed the charge from our bill. I had the combo crunchy shredded beef taco and cheese enchilada which comes with rice and beans, plenty to take home and snack on the next day. We skipped the drinks because we were driving, but the next table had a sangria that looked amazing. Definitely will go back when in the south bay. thanks Panchos

This place is awesome! They serve large food portions. The food is really good. Panchos has a nice authentic ambience that is fun for the family and kids.

Food was great. This was our last stop before heading to the airport after a weekend in LA. We saw Vince Vaughn. He said hello to us and it made for a perfect ending to a perfect weekend in LA!!

Very good place to take a small group of business people from out of town to a great Mexican restaurant.

Food was not spectacular for the price. Taquitos were super dry, almost overcooked.
Very cute place, wonderful service, but unimpressed with the food.

It's been 10 years since I last visited Panchos. Sad to say this place has really declined. The wait staff is still on point, but the food was plain awful. There was so much grease looked like a river flowing. Nobody in my party enjoyed their food. In fact one of my friend's food was so salty it was inedible. She said it tasted like the entire box of salt was poured in. The place is still beautiful, and our server Jesus was incredible. Whomever was in the kitchen on Sunday Aug. 6, 2017 needs to be fired. It's not too late to save this place if they hire a decent chef they can become the award winning restaurant they once were. This use to be my favorite place for Mexican food, but after Sunday I'll never be back unless I read somewhere that they hired new chefs and cooks. Then I'll give them a chance to redeem themselves.

Had a great experience dining at Pancho's. Very good food and drinks and classy service. Even when fully packed, there service was prompt.
