    Expensive yes. Atmosphere is great and the Pollo Pipian is excellent. If you want guac you are better off ordering taquitos app and getting the guac on the side.

    Great chips and salsa/guac. Your basic Mexican food restaurant w/in walking distance to beach. No real signature dish so you can't go wrong with anything here. Interesting atmosphere in dining room.

    Overpriced, yes. But great atmosphere and tasty eats/drinks. Good for groups & special occasions! Have always had good service even when it's packed, & psst! There's a discount if you pay with cash ;)

    Not sure why others complained - for the best seating, request the mezzanine area that is at the top of the atrium. Feels like you're dining outside and the food was delicious.

    Sammy is one of the sharpest most punctual servers around! And Abbot always hooks it up with primo seating. Pancho's is a must try!! The guac is best in California.

    Best salsa in the world :-) Bar and restaurant staff rocks and makes you part of the family if you visit enough

    This place has not changed since I was here 6 years ago. So I can say they are consistent. Generous servings, more American-mex than Mexican due to the amount of dressing that accompanies each dish.

    Classic spot with authentic food and great salsas. Big restaurant with a loud karaoke bar heard throughout...

    The BEST salsa ever! The staff rocks and so does their tacos, taco salad and burritos

    Margaritas were great. Service exceptional for our largest group, but menu is wildly overpriced. With drinks, you won't leave under $30

    Overpriced because of the awesome location (on the beach), so better for groups and special occasions.

    Their chicken mole is the best I've ever had outside of Mexico. You won't regret it!

    This place was way too expensive! I expected it to be delicious based on the prices and was very disappointed as I have had much better Mexican food for way less money. But it was nicely decorated.

    So ridiculously overpriced for the mediocre quality! Get a mango margarita, karaoke it & then go across the street to El Tarasco. Better Mexican to be had in LA elsewhere~try Lares on Pico Blvd.!
