    Pancho's was at Britton and Penn in the same strip center as Pier 1 Imports.

    I agree with you about liking TB when the menu was simpler

    I find it interesting how local palates have evolved since '68 (when I was maybe 13). I also find it interesting how voter demographics don't seem to have changed at all. Not Politics. No Axe to Grind. Homemade Shepherds Pie is hittin' the plate tonight. (in Minnesota, they call it a Hotdish, =~)

    Isn't the El Charrito building now the Paseo Grille?

    That sounds very much like Casa Bonita.

    Yep and the Casa Bonita was in the shopping center at the NE corner of Portland and 39th Expressway (US 66).

    Did we ever have a Pancho's on the north side? The only one I remember was the building at I-240 and Penn where Cajun King is now.

    Yes, there was a Pancho's on 39th; on the north side of the street just west of Meridian.

    When I was growing up in the 90's. I went to the Panchos on MacArthur and NW Expressway that was in front of old second generation Walmart that is now Incredible Pizza. It was a Chinese restaurant, then Indian restaurant, before that building was ultimately demolished.(May have caught fire?) I had fond memories of the Mexican buffet concept, but I went to Pancho's on 240 not too long before it closed and food and service was terrible.

    Ddin't catch fire, it was just torn down so something new could be built in its place. Can't remember what, and haven't been out there in a while and too lazy to look it up. I believe there's a thread on it here someplace.
