Cheese enchiladas with cheese sauce and endless sopapillas!!! I haven't been in 10+ years, since the one in Sherman closed. Y'all have some delicate guts.

We affectionately called that place "scarf & barf" in high school. Loved it.

That place was awesome back in the 80s. After a rugby match at SMU one weekend the whole team went to Panchos to refuel. I think the manager was happy to see us leave. I will never forget, we sit down and the flag goes up and this guy orders 100 tacos, her face was priceless but with about 30 of us at the table that was just the beginning. Good times.

Guy I worked with was on the large side,as was his wife and two sons.We were sitting a few tables from them one night and were amazed at the amount of food disappearing and the constant flow of servers at their table.The manager finally came out and asked them to leave !

Could a person sneak in some Long John Silvers to a Panchos, combine it with let’s say an enchilada dinner and then cover it up with some queso sauce? That way a person could get enough grease in their diet in just one sitting.

I grew up eating at the Pancho's in Bossier City, LA - about the only place we ever went to "eat out" back then.

On pay-day Friday you had to go early to beat all the Haughton people...that is what my dad said and I think he was right because the line was out the door.

Two chile rellenos with cheese sauce, two tamales with chili, a flaunta, rice w green chile stew and two tacos has been my starter plate since I've been old enough for the "all you can eat" deal.

Circa 1989 college days... few of us o-linemen would go & put the hurt on them. Once I didn’t go but the other o-line took some d-linemen & they didn’t even lower the flag & once they stopped they laid down in the booths for a break then went back at it. Manager told them if they left he would comp all of their meals.

I’ve raised many a flag in my day and still love me some Panchos. The chili rellenos (even with their cheap cheese sauce) are pure greatness and the only thing I like better than their sopapillas is Cafe Du Monde’s beignets. I try to make a trip at least once a year to the Pancho’s in Mesquite.

Dang I miss goin there as a kid!

Can’t believe the “raise the flag” hasn’t caught on at more restaurants. No need for the waiter to continually interrupt dinner conversation if there’s to flag up!

I told my wife that we were going to go to Panchos. She said no we are not! I said it’s a part of our history that we have to pass down to our boys. The youngest was too young to remember. I will post an update with pictures when we get a chance to take them.

There used to be a Pancho's in Plano. My MIL loved it. We would go there a few times for her. We would leave and by time we got home, there was 3 of us fighting for 2 toilets. And we only lived a half mile away.

Yup....dang sissy guts. Same folks talk about eating someplace and it immediately gives them the ****s....which is physically impossible..

Haven't eaten at a Panchos in years, because they replaced the shopping center it was in with apartments ..... but as a working broke college kid, me and my buddies used to frequent places like Panchos, CiCis, Mr. Gattis and Grandys for all you can eat at cheap prices so we spend anything else we had on beer and fishing. Panchos was a regular on the "splurge day" rotation. I'd have no issue eating at one today. You just go in knowing what it is and you enjoy.. Would be a cool walk down memory lane..lol

Back in HS we would wear out Pancho's in Richardson until it got shut down. When they put the one in Plano there was something different. It just was not as good. I still get all up in some LJS and other Mexican places and it don't bother me at all.

The only thing that messes my stomach up is really hot peppers. No clue how enchiladas, tacos, rice and beans does that to these weenuses.
