Shame to see this site sell out to advertising for businesses under the disguise of a "blog post."

Pancho's was the first Mexican or Tex Mex restaurant that I ever went to. It was in Wedgwood off of Granbury Road. An old legendary Fort Worth High School basketball coach gave my dad some Pancho's gift certificates to eat there. We couldn't afford to eat out at restaurants at that time and boy we were certainly grateful for Coach Turner's generosity.

I remember going to a regional track meet in Arlington in the spring of 1974. It was a cold, rainy, miserable day. Bport had won the district title in track that year.

After the competition was done for all of us, Coach Moore took the team to a Poncho's somewhere in Arlington or south FW, can't remember exactly where for sure.

We all went in wearing our track warm ups and some even wore their spiked shoes because they hadn't brought another pair with them to the meet.

There were about 18 of us, all skinny high school boys with bottomless pits for stomachs, except for Lee Alan, he was full-sized.

We ate like we'd never seen food before. The flags were flying high that day, and there is no way they made any money off of us.

Good times.

Back in the 80's Panchos was decent quality at a good price.

Now they are piss poor quality and not a great price.

No thanks.

the one we always ate at was in the old Seminary South shopping center on I-35. Now it's La Gran Plaza or something like that. Might be the one you're thinking of in south FW?
That was where we did our all-purpose shopping prior to the opening of Northeast Mall in the early '70s

Panchos used to be good, 40 years ago.

I never gave a hoot what other people said about Pancho's, we always loved it. Haven't been in several years; but, bring it to Decatur and we are there!
