“Good authentic Mexican”

Pancho's Mexican Grill
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 December 2017 via mobile

Good reasonably priced authentic Mexican food on a run down street in South Bound Brook. Place is small but clean. Good, friendly service. Rice and beans, tacos and guacamole were all tasty. Sweet cream tamale was a nice treat. Good alternative to the chain restaurants.

We went there tonight for dinner. Our waitress was very nice & she made some great recommendations. I started with Flan bc that's what I really wanted to eat first.. It was soo good.. Caramelization was beautiful & it tasted great & only for 5 bucks... Then I ordered Picadias with pork. It came with green sauce & red sauce.. both great... liked with red sauce more than green but equally good.. their tortillas on this dish are made at home.. hubby ordered entree with Pork with salad, rice & beans.. I actually forgot what exactly dish was called but forgot the name but it was equally good.. I have eaten good in my friends house in past & their food has very authentic taste.. I wanted to try tamales but it's only available on weekends.. will make trip for weekend then.. Don't miss this place.. do check it out!!!!

Most Mexican or Tex Mex establishments are either chain restaurants or smaller ones (like the ones in New Brunswick) where everyone who eats there speaks Spanish and you may feel out if place if you don't.
Enter Pancho's Mexican Grill on Main St in So Bound Brook. Small family run restaurant with excellent Mexican dishes. Clean and pleasant interior, friendly wait staff who speaks English and can explain the dishes.

Home made chips and guacamole were very good. Fish garlic style and in Mexican sauce were excellent. Generous portion served with salad, rice, and bean. Burritos were also very good but somewhat light on the meat. Grilled chicken breast was very tasty as well. Large glass of horchata was refreshing.

Street parking is not too difficult to find. If you are in the area and looking for a different kind of Mexican place unlike Chipotle or Chevy's, this is the one.

We’ve been waiting to find authentic Mexican that doesn’t disappoint or that isn’t a chain. Modest place with great menu options and quality food. Dining area is a bit small so you may have to wait during a rush, but the friendly service and delicious food are worth it.

We saw the article in NJ Monthly about Pancho's and decided to try it for lunch. The restaurant is small, but offers a nice, authentic atmosphere. It was crowded, so I would imagine the wait for dinner must be quite long. We first ordered the guacamole and chips. The chips were obviously homemade and so delicious and the guac was to die for! For my entree, I ordered Bisteck Encebollado which was a thin steak with sauteed onions. Both the meat and onions had delicious flavor. It was served with rice and beans, both excellent. The food was plentiful so you will not leave hungry. Prices were reasonable for the amount and quality of food. And a big shout out to our server Susy who was knowledgeable, personable, and efficient. I will definitely be making a trip back in the very near future. Pancho's offers pick up and delivery and is a BYOB.
