“Great value”
Review of Sancho's Taqueria

Sancho's Taqueria
Ranked #154 of 362 Restaurants in Palo Alto
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 September 2016

If you live in Palo Alto this is a great place for affordable Mexican dishes. The burritos are large, the fish tacos available fried or grilled, and the shrimp cocktail more than generous and tasty. We had lunch, ate outside, and all enjoyed the quality, quantity, and price. Would go back.

This is Sancho's second location in Palo Alto. It has more space and outdoor seating in front and back. Bring CASH, as they do not take credit cards (there is an ATM in the restaurant - but I'm sure there are fees).

My favorite dishes are the fried fish tacos (you can get them grilled if you are health conscious) and the tostada with carne asada. Burritos are also good here.

SUPER NACHOS PLATE . . . I was reminded of the first time, I laid eyes upon Mt Shasta or saw a picture of Mt Everest. These are so, really, smoking hot!! They've got everything on them, that makes really good nachos, great.Her Ladyship tried to help me finish them, but to no avail. We took a huge amount home, but never did finish them off. Real life, Man vs Food. Okay, to the point - bring cash, they don't take CCs. Combo type plates good too, with the usual refried beans with cheese melted on top and rice. Tacos are great too, burritos great. Free salsa and chips. Beer selection worked for me, there are alternatives. Order at counter, big menu board, right behind counter, so please know what you want when it's your turn to order, or a line out the door. An angry, rude, threatening crowd if you dawdle to long. Parking is on street, only if you ignore, the huge shopping center parking, right behind the place, plus they do have a small parking area for the taqueria right at their back door entrance. If the lunch rush is over, you will be able to park their. You can sit outside, which I'm okay with, but some may be bothered, as you will be sharing with the Subway, where more than a few teens like to congregate. They have a couple tables out back, but no people watching if this is your choice.You do have to buy your food at the counter, but they will bring it to you when it is ready. If nothing else, go for the SN's. You may want to eat a piece celery afterwards, if you have a 64 yr old stomach like me ; ) or keep some antacids near. See a lot of Mexicans eating here, so that's always a good sign. Some say it's pricey, which is correct if you dine at Taco Bell, The prices are very reasonable,and it's worth it!! Never had nothing but nice and friendly from the staff.

If you need a really quick take out meal, and like burritos, Sancho's in mid-town Palo Alto is a real dont miss and a good value as well. I stopped there last week, as I often do when my wife is gone, for my take home burrito fix. I like the Carnitas super burrito best, though the other meat choices are good as well. The super burrito comes with additional guacamole, cheese and sour cream. Its big enough to split for 2 people (I didnt!!). And for 9 bucks, it a steal. The only even semi-negative things (minor) about Sanchos are that they dont take credit cards and their chips (free with the burrito) seem to be always stale.

Sancho's has a bunch of food options -- our favorites are the grilled fish tacos, sauce on the side, along with a container of whole black beans and grilled vegetables. Always reliably good!
