The Weathers Report has unintentionally and ironically become the “Bring Back Pancho’s” online community of record. Just google Pancho’s New Orleans. The comments warrant their own post.

  • I can’t beleive its really happening…lol!!! NO SERIOUSLLY!!! Me and almost about everyone I know is completely in love w/Ponchos!! I recently flew to TX to visit a friend and had to find the closest Ponchos! Can’t wait to have it around the corner!!!!!!!
  • hey everyone panchos is reopening and someone started a myspace so you can show your excitement
  • # OMG!!! I AM SOOO EXCITED!!!! PANCHOS IS DEFINITLY RETURNING IN METAIRIE AT THE OLD HOHO’S I SAW THE SIGN TODAY AND IAM COMPLETELY STOKED I TEXTED EVERY ONE OF MY FRIENDS AND WE WILL BE THERE OPENING DAY IVE NEVER SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE SO EXCITED OVER A MEXICAN BUFFET I THINK ITS AWESOME ANYWAYS THE RUMORS ARE TRUE THERE COMING BACK!!!!!
  • I have heard from a good source that Panchos will be reopening sometime in Feb/March 09 at the old Ho-Ho’s Buffet location in Metairie at Airline and Causeway Blvd.
  • I heard that Panchos will be openening soon at the old Steak and Ale location on Vets! I can’t wait!
  • I was told that Pancho’s will be opening before Christmas 2008. Could you please offer any information about this. Please open a new Pancho’s. Everyone I know misses Pancho’s. It would be great if you could open one on the Westbank of Jefferson Parish. Like Jerry said “If you build, they will come”.
  • I would like to thank the owner in Bossier City for trying to open a franchise in the New Orleans are. Please consider the Westbank of the city. No matter though,IF YOU BUILD, THEY WILL COME!! Jerry
  • GOOD NEWS!!!!! The franchise owner from Bossier is trying to reopen there by early 2009 Robert Cohen, Chief Operations Officer, Panchos Mexican Buffet Inc., 4360 Western Center Blvd., Ft. Worth, Tx. 76137
  • Just couldn’t happen to a better place. And what is with them not having insurance to cover Katrina’s damages?? They certainly were packed with people every weekend so money obviously wasn’t an issue. Sigh..
  • Here it is, Nov 2007 and still no plans to re-open/re-establish Panchos anywhere within driving distance of New Orleans. Sorry but Shreveport is just a bit too far of a drive from the Northshore!
  • There are only a couple of really good mexican restaurants on the Northshore, but they are a bit pricey and do not have a buffet like Panchos did. I think I will miss their cheese enchiladas and salsa/chips the most. Theirs was the best!!
  • I just found this site while searching to see if Pancho’s had reopened in New Orleans. I love that place. I can’t tell you how much my family loves to go there to eat when we visit my hometown of Bossier City, LA. Here in Mississippi there isn’t a place like that to enjoy. Why don’t you come here and put in a Pancho’s. The closest one I know of is in Bossier. It sure would fill a craving for a whole bunch of us. Really sorry for New Orlenans loss.
  • I have many fond memories of meeting my friends and family at the Pancho’s on Vets in Metairie. I was sad to see the Chalmette location go back in the 90’s. Please come home Pancho’s, I need flautas and sopapila’s stat! Carl Green
  • PLEASE REOPN PANCHO’S – come to the northshore of Lake Ponchartrain. WE NEED PANCHOS…..my kids need therapy now because they can’t get their FIX!
  • I’m sure you have heard this a million times before but please come back to louisiana.We miss pacho’s so very much.Pancho’s has been a family place in our family for over 25 years.In fact I raised my two children on Pacho’s mexican food.As a family meeting place for our huge family. I live in Ponchatoula, La. and we would cross the causeway bridge every weekend to meet the rest of the family.Maybe you would consider reopening in Hammond la. We have tried other mexican restuarant’s but none compare.Even if you would charge more for your buffet I’m possitive it would a great and welcomed success.MISSING YOU GREATLY,LINDA AND FAMILY.
  • Sure it was the gastro-intestinal equivalent of a Danielle Steel novel, but it was a favorite haunt. It was a wonderfully affordable vice and now it is gone. Excuse me… I am tearing up a bit… sort of like I did about 90 minutes after visiting Pancho’s.
  • The idea that Pancho’s has “no plans to rebuild there or relocate elsewhere in the area” because it “it is no longer safe to operate there” is an insult to the intelligence of everyone who ever stood in line for a rancid flauta.
