TAKOS PANCHO - Puerto Vallarta

TAKOS PANCHO [sic] is located on Basilo Badillo in the Zona Romantica area of Puerto Vallarta - the older, charming Puerto Vallarta. Zona Romantica is Vallarta's most energized area with the south side's bars, restaurants, lounges and beach side cafes. The neighborhood continues to experience revitalization. Vallarta is ever changing & growing.

The short menu - tacos, quesadillas, & fajitas is fantastic. Juan Carlos & I stopped on our way to find some of our favorite libations. We enjoyed 2 pork tacos (tacos al pastor) with a silver of pineapple &
4 diced chicken tacos. You have your choice of either corn or flour tortillas (approx 4" in diameter). These incredible, cooked to order tacos are served with lime, cilantro and 3 sauces of varying degrees of heat. Yumm!

Our 6 tacos plus a soda came to a surprising USD$7.

Pancho's opens around 3 in the afternoon & remains open well beyond the time most go to sleep. It is the perfect stop for a quick snack or meal at very reasonable prices. Carlos, the server, quietly & quickly takes care of all his diners with his sly, sexy smile and subtle menu suggestions! This little cafe has 7 tables inside and 1 long table for six on the sidewalk. I can not recall how many visits I have made to Pancho's - numerous on my several trips to Vallarta each year. The eclectic mix of diners at all times of the day makes this one of my all time favorite taco stops!

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm...
