Hola Amigo's! My name is William Goff and I am the proud owner of Pancho Loco, which was established way back in 1997. Back in 1997 I got this crazy idea that owning a restaurant would be a great way to spend my life so I went out and started living the dream. Now Pancho's is known for its fresh tasty homemade foods!
At Jalisco Restaurant, the Rodriguez family whips up traditional Mexican dishes enhanced by fresh veggies, natural-aged cheeses, and homemade, preservative-free corn tortillas. Every day, chefs blend sauces and marinades from scratch to match with top sirloin steak, pork loin, and lamb shank, as well as ocean-fresh red snapper, prawns, scallops, and Dungeness crab. Crisp chips emerge from the fryer mere hours before appearing on tables to scoop up salsas or remnants of vegetarian burritos stuffed with cactus and black beans. Against a vibrant backdrop of yellow and adobe-colored walls, bartenders rim margarita glasses with salt and lime wedges or feed tropical cocktails to thirsty piñatas.
What goes well with tableside-mashed guacamole, tilapia baja fish tacos, and fried poblano peppers stuffed with chipotle chicken? Tequila. The northeast's largest selection of tequila, according to staff. Mama Iguana pairs a menu of Spanish-written dishes with more than 200 tequilas, which they use to kick-start their popular house and specialty margaritas. Patrons can sip drinks and bite into tacos while seated in the restaurant's colorful indoor dining area, out on the 100-seat outdoor patio, or standing in the doorway armed with poblano peppers in each hand.
Beneath Coyote Flaco's hanging Mexican folk art, a bevy of colorfully plated Mexican dishes crowns red tablecloths and sates eager stomachs. Custom meals please palates of all tastes with sausage, steak, and vegetables enfolded in fresh tortillas and expertly paired with wines, custom cocktails, or disguised love potions. Fruity margaritas wash down bites, prepping taste buds for desserts such as sweet fried ice cream or tres leches cake.
Casa De Nana lives up to the warmth and tradition implied by its name, which translates to grandmother's house. Founded in 1968, the cantina still retains many of the same Mexican recipes designed by its founders. The chefs make their own chips, salsa, and hot sauce and whip up favorites such as spinach enchiladas, blackened-shrimp tacos, and Nana's Diablo, a spicy chimichanga with ranchero sauce, pico de gallo, and jack cheese. At the bar, the staff serves Mexican beers and specialty margaritas crafted from more than 30 types of tequila as televisions practice broadcasting live sports.
Del Rio Mexican Restaurant’s chefs strew spicy meats and salsas across tortilla canvases to conjure burritos, enchiladas, and other south-of-the-border masterpieces. Spoons dive for clams, scallops, mussels, and shrimp in the zarzuela’s bubbling ocean of tomatillo sauce, and knives slam like tiny bats against poblano peppers filled with a piñata-like assortment of meats and veggies. Tacos, burritos, and enchiladas from across the menu team up on combination plates, whose spices meet their match with cool sips of fruit-flavored Mexican soda.
The menu at La Boca Mexican Restaurant & Cantina goes beyond the usual Tex-Mex fare. Alongside fajitas and quesadillas, you’ll find traditional tamales, slow-roasted pork shank, and hand-cut corn tortilla chips. A talented staff of servers and bartenders cultivate a laid-back, festive atmosphere, serving up Mexican beers on draft and a celebrated bloody mary that’s garnished with asparagus, cocktail shrimp, and grilled steak. The eatery's parchment-colored walls are covered with drawings of proud vaqueros and rustic Mexican scenery, forming an ideal backdrop for authentic dinners of mahi mahi tacos or jicama salad. Pub rockers, live karaoke backing groups, and cover bands provide a festive soundtrack.
