Busy place, must mean the food is good, staff is friendly, service is great. One of Stow's favorite places. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

I usually love Pancho and Lefty's. My last visit, I tried Fish tacos and there was a strong chemical smell from the fish and I couldn't eat them. The guacamole was very bland. The service was still great. I'll just stay away from the fish there in. The future.

Good Mexican fare..,not the typical "fast food" type. Discounted margaritas on Mondays are a real draw. The only drawback is the place is small and gets super noisy. They did open a small patio with a few tables which helps you get out of the noise in the summer anyway. Chips are not my fave...too much paprika. Most main courses... More

I really try to support locally owned businesses but Panch and Lefty's was a let down. The hostess was on her tv cell phone and barely acknowledged us. The setvice was very slow even though there was only one other table. The food was not good.....it was bland and colorless. I was extremely disappointed.

I absolutely love Pancho & Lefty's! The chips and salsa are amazing. I have yet to have a meal that isn't awesome! My husband loves the beef enchiladas. The tacos, burritos, fajitas and chimichangas are all very good as well. Everything is full of flavor. Service is fast and friendly and though it's always packed it's worth the wait!! Try... More

I just don't get it. This place is always very busy and I really don't know why. I've tried this place at least three times and have yet to leave satisfied. Service is good but the food is not impressive. Their chips and salsa are lousy especially the chips! They have a lot of red seasoning like cumin on them... More

We live locally and have been enjoying Rene's true Mexican food since the mid 1990's. The staff is always the best and the chips and salsa are to die for. Rene makes the best long Island tea in north east Ohio.

Great food for a great price. Fast and friendly service. The chorizo was delicious. The beef was wonderful. The chicken wasn't dry like it is at so many other places. Took the family for lunch. Very accommodating for children. We will be back.

Mmmm the paprika they add their chips brings out that smokey flavor everyone is looking for when it comes to chips and salsa. Their margaritas are on point and their fajitas are cooked to perfection. This place is always packed, but worth the wait. Enjoy!
