Art visiting MIA we stopped on Nicollet, in walking distance from the art institute. The service was prompt. And it took her order and came back several times to make sure everything is going OK. The enchiladas were good. Food was fresh and served quickly.

We had a group of 11 adults and kids that came here for lunch before going to the Children's Theater on a Sunday afternoon. The two waitresses, both named Abbi, were very attentive and patient with our large group. We ordered many various Mexican foods. I had the Tortilla Soup, which was not only excellent, but filling because it was... More

One of my all time favorite staples in uptown is Pancho Villa. I have held my birthday dinner here for years. The spinning wheel, Mexican karaoke, drink specials and the staff. They are so popular that over the years they have expanded. When you walk in the doors, I always ask to be seated on that side. That is where... More

First thing: Food was very good. I thought they were very reasonable priced and like I say, it was very good. But the bad news is that they were trying to overcharge us. They hand us a drink menu that says Tecate is $4.39 and get the bill and they are charging $6.69. Jarritos was priced at $3+, get the... More

Visited Pancho Villa at 7p last Friday and was very disappointed with the overall experience: -Despite the restaurant being mostly empty upon our arrival, we were seated RIGHT next to another table that was already occupied for some reason -We were not told that the only Margarita's that were 2 for 1 were the house Margarita's, so we expected our...

This was our second visit. Food was great the first time. This time, I had a burrito + 1 item combo. The burrito was large, and the 2nd item was a very small (5 bites) enchilada, which was very good. I cut open my burrito to get to the meat inside, and saw in my first bite was appeared to... More

My daughter insisted we switch our reservations for 12 people from one well-known Mexican restaurant in South Minneapolis to this one. Although I was hesitant, as we were celebrating two big birthdays, we switched. The actual space has very low key decor. With very few decorations, it looked like a Mexican cafe. There were two areas with a doorway in... More

My wife and I have been looking for a good, locally owned Mexican resturant to call our favorite and I think we have found it. Our old favorite closed about 3 years ago and we have been trying all sorts of places around the metro with no luck till now. The place is clean and has a nice atmosphere. The... More
