Since our trip to Miami, I have daydreamed about the delicious Mexican food available in the States.
Pancho’s is a place in Blue Springs, Missouri with cheap and DELICIOUS Mexican food. It’s definitely not fancy (my sort of place) and the portions are HUGE.
We ordered 2 fish tacos, a super nacho, a couple of California burritos, rolled tacos, and beans and rice. All the food and a couple of fountain drinks cost less than $40. We took a burrito home as well as a big box of leftover nachos and beans and rice.
I had the fish tacos and it was so good. I had fish tacos the night before at Cheddars that were nowhere as good as the fish tacos at Pancho’s. I probably shouldn’t have eaten both tacos but I did and it was worth it. The fish was crispy but not greasy. The salsa was super fresh and the coleslaw on top was not too mayo-y. I’m not usually a fan of refried beans outside of home. I usually cook mine with chicken stock so it’s tastier but I rather liked the beans at Pancho’s.
The super nachos was a mountain of crunchy tortilla chips with guacamole, refried beans, sour cream, steak pieces, salsa and cheese. It looks like they gave us everything except the kitchen sink.
I didn’t try the California burrito ’cause it had sour cream and cheese but it looked pretty good. It was huge. My 2 15-year old cousins shared one. It’s steak, potatoes, sour cream, guacamole? and cheese. The girl at the counter recommended the Texas burrito (chicken instead of steak) when I asked what she recommended but I was hankering for fish tacos.
They also had an assortment of Mexican drinks to offer. We went with pink lemonade ’cause that’s what the kids wanted.
I wish I found out about this place last week ’cause then I would have had another chance for more Pancho’s. Perhaps I’ll go for a late night run… or early morning run before I go back to Canada. Did I mention that they’re open 24 hours?
