Kris and I went to Pancho Villa Taqueria for a late night dinner last week. I love how this place is hopping even at 11 pm on a weeknight (compared to other places in the the neighborhood), and how it attracts a motley mix of clientele – from hipsters in skinny jeans to hip-hop kids in sweat pants to businessmen in suits.
We shared an order of the garlic prawns ($9.95 – pictured above) and washed it down with a medium horchata ($1.65). The plate, which included rice, beans, avocado, fresh tortillas AND tortilla chips, was enormous and delicious. The salsa bar made things even better. A real Mission District gem.
Como dice el “Governator,” “I’ll be back.” Más Pancho Villa, por fa-please!
