If you're craving burritos with tons of flavor, with every bite, then Pancheros Mexican Restaurant should be your next destination.


Pancheros opened their doors Tuesday morning shortly after 10:30 a.m. and from what I heard, there was already a short line waiting.

I arrived with my friend Jayne just before 11:00 a.m. and we were able to make it inside before a much longer line started to form along the sidewalk for the lunch crowd. It really didn't take long for us to make it to the front of the line, though, as the employees were whipping through everyone's orders fairly quickly, which is impressive considering how new everything is.

You could feel the excitement the employees had to take your order and they quickly fulfilled it as they placed the fresh dough on the presser to make my burrito.

As they tossed ingredient after ingredient on my freshly made tortilla, I told them to pour on the queso cheese. And they did just that!


When finished, they took "Bob" and evenly mixed together all the chicken, rice and other ingredients before they wrapped it all together. What I got was one giant and delicious burrito that gave me a nice mix of flavor with every bite!

On top of that, they didn't even bat an eye when I asked for extra queso to dip my blue corn tortilla chips into. In fact, they gave me a wading pool-sized cup of it! So if you're a lover of queso cheese like I am, then you're in for a pleasant surprise. I mean, just look at it!


I met up with the owner afterwards, and she was extremely encouraged by all the positive feedback, including my own.

One thing she mentioned before I left was she wants you to circle May 2nd on your calendar, because the chain will be selling $1 burritos from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on that day. As long as you're IN LINE before the 6 p.m. deadline (that's iPhone time, not what's on your own watch) they will honor the deal.

The bottom line is that their mission statement “Better Built Burritos” is no joke. They truly do it the right way, and I walked away pretty impressed after my first visit. They definitely earned a repeat customer in me.
