Pancho's Mexican Grill
Pancho's vs. Panchero's
Pancho's differs from Panchero's in 3 principle ways.
- Panchero's has more letters than Pancho's, specifically an "e" and an "r."
- Panchero's always asks if you would like black beans or pinto beans. Pancho's never asks and simply gives you refried. In fact I didn't know they had anything else until my third visit when I noticed on the menu where it says, "Whole pinto or black beans upon request" in what I consider to be a less than obvious location. Let me be clear that I hate refried beans in my burritos.
- Panchero's is pretty darn good. Pancho's sucks. It's hard to exactly put my finger on why, but I think the burritos at Pancho's are bland and mealy.
In short, if I worked across the street from a taqueria for 3 months and went only 3 times, it can't be good.

Welcome To Pancho's Mexican Grill
My life revolves around food.
When I moved to San Francisco and got a job, one of my first thoughts was, "What am I going to eat for lunch every day?" In Miami I wasn't lucky enough not to have a taqueria nearby. However, I did have a Boston Market right next to my work. Say what you will about Boston Market, I was addicted.
But now I was in San Francisco. I eagerly awaited my first trip to work to find out what restaurants were in the area.
Standing in front of work, my jaw dropped. Across the street, (Map) literally, was a taqueria. "Pancho's Mexican Grill" it was called.
Could this what I was hoping for?
