We like everything at Pachanga but on certain days of the month they serve pork shank that is off the charts fantastic. Their sangria is delish and it comes in fishbowls!!! Love this place.

The family always appreciates the low-key vibe but delicious food served here. My daughter even chose to eat here for her 8th birthday! She loves the tacos prepared to order. The adults love the pitcher margaritas to accompany any of the entrees!

My only complaint is that you only get one basket of chips for free. The food is really good, and I got my money's worth. I highly recommend eating here for some good food.

The appetizers are top notch. Thr waitresses are very polite and professional. Portions are nice, could use a little less lettuce.

The food was ok , but didn't meet the authenticity of Mexican food! They have modified it a lot, If you are looking for a good and authentic Mexican restaurant , then you will be disappointed!!!!
