Black Bean? Pinto Bean?

According to founder Rodney Anderson, Panchero's has been capturing the hearts and taste buds of college students since 1992, when he opened the first Panchero's near the University of Iowa Campus.

Subsequently, he has capitalized on many other college campuses.

The secret, claims Panchero's are the homemade tortillas. When you order at Panchero's, they stick a ball of tortilla dough on a big flattening machine, and press it out into a tortilla. From there it goes onto a grill and begins to resemble your lunch.

The secret as far as I'm concerned is that Panchero's (in Ann Arbor, MI at least) is open 'till 3:00am, and located next to several bars.

The other secret to the Ann Arbor location is the staff there, whose very thick accents make questions like "Black bean? Pinto bean?" or "Rice, amigo? Cheese, amigo?" music to your ears.

Also, the food is really good.

This Panchero's meal was rated: 8.0.
