Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican cuisine at Pancho Loco in Vernon Rockville.
Pancho Loco's menu offers both traditional Mexican dishes and spicy American staples. Start your meal with chicken chili flautas (6 for $7.99) or spicy Mexican wings (10 for $8.99) before accepting a mouth-donation of the eatery's signature fajitas with chicken, steak, or shrimp resting on a sizzling bed of fresh veggies ($13.99). Sample indigenous cuisine from slightly north of the border with a Santa Fe Trail barbecue burrito filled with carne asada steak, barbecue sauce, vegetables, sour cream, rice, and monterey jack and cheddar cheese with a side of guacamole ($13.99), or park your tongue-vehicle south of the United States with a spicy Mexican burger topped with sautéed onions, peppers, jalapeños, and hot sauce ($8.99). A full rack (10–11 ribs) of tender baby back ribs ($18.99) allows diners to keep their utensils packed away in their suitcase.
Pancho Loco's tropical dining room, complete with palm trees and parrots that recite memorable passages from the dictionary, is a fitting setting to kick back with a 12-ounce house margarita ($5) or a frozen virgin margarita in one of four fruity flavors ($4.95).

- We've been back 5 times since and had the best Fajitas ever, as well as the best wings I've had in years. We've had 3 different waitresses, all were fun and did an exceptional job. – Bolted, Citysearch
