    Pancho Villa Taqueria Exterior

    Pancho Villa Taqueria is a long time Mexican restaurant with locations in San Francisco and San Mateo. We have eaten here many times and found the food good and consistent. They have a pretty extensive menu and an assembly line where you can see all the ingredients. We have ate at the downtown San Mateo location many times.

    Pancho Villa has a new promo with one dollar tacos and one dollar Agua Fresca,  Monday to Friday 3-5pm and 8-10pm.

    Pancho Villa Taqueria Interior

    Decor, Vibe – Pancho Villa’s decor has slowly improved with more pictures on the wall and nicer menu. Tables and chairs are pretty basic. Families, locals, and even Hispanics were dining.

    Picks:
    Their salsa is some of the best around. It has won awards at several California State fairs. Get a water cup and load up.

    Pancho Villa Taqueria Carne Asada Dinner plate

    Carne Asada Dinner ($9.95) was a big plate full of beef, black beans, rice, and a small salad. The meat was in good quantity and flavor but thin and greasy. The other items were average.

    Pancho Villa Taqueria Chicken Quesadillayou

    Chicken Quesadilla ($7.50) was huge and on a good tortilla with lots of cheese. It could have had more chicken. The carnitas version was solid, but extremely greasy.

    Pancho Villa Taqueria Tofu Burrito

    Tofu Burrito ($5.95) on whole wheat tortilla was huge and full of soft tofu and black beans. Great for vegetarians.

    OK:

    Pancho Villa Taqueria Burrito

    Chicken Burrito ($5.50 for baby size) was still pretty big but had a ton of rice and beans, yet not much meat.

    Al Pastor Burrito ($5.50 for baby size) also had little meat.  The meat was fair, not a lot of flavor like the taco trucks.

    Horchata ($3.50 extra large) had good flavor but was too sweet. Dilute it down with some water. It lacked strong cinnamon flavor.

    Pancho Villa Taqueria Agua Fresca

    Pineapple Agua Fresca ($3.50 extra large) was average with a good amount of fruit but it too was pretty sweet.

    Pans:

    Al Pastor Burrito ($5.95) had meat that did not have much flavor or tenderness.  They overloaded this burrito with black beans too.

    Pancho Villa Taqueria will bring your order to your table when it is ready. Food comes pretty fast. They botched the beans we wanted in our dinner plate even though they have a computerized order system. Pancho Villa started using compostable cups.  The food was solid and tasty, better than the La Cumbre nearby. In San Francisco, El Farolito is pretty solid. Quantities are on the large side, we were Extremely full afterwards. Pancho Villa has a delivery service. We have no qualms about recommending this place although the mobile roach coaches like El Tonayanse (San Francisco) or Taco Peralta (San Mateo) have better food.  Try Palo Alto’s Oaxacan Kitchen for gourmet Mexican food.

    3. La Pinata Mexicatesen Restaurant, San Mateo | Foodnut.com Says:

      [...] La Pinata Mexicatesen is the type of place where you order and the food is brought to you in about 10-15 minutes. Food quality was solid and prices right, making this a good choice for those looking to fill up on good Salvadorean/Mexican cuisine. The food is more authentic than most Americanized restaurants. Some may still prefer places like nearby Pancho Villa Taqueria. [...]

    4. Salina Says:

      Try their seafood… I’ve always found their meat choices to be lacking a bit. However, their seafood (fish and shrimp) have always been spot on (esp. in taco form)
