Manhattan Beach's Pancho's Mexican Restaurant will debut this September in Downtown Summerlin and it appears they made good use of the estimated $2.8 million construction budget.
The 10,500-square-foot site, located next to Capriotti's Sandwich Shop and Panda Express looks like it has taken a coastal California restaurant and dropped into the outdoor mall. The two-story interior features balcony seating looking down on the main dining area. Already previewed, stained glass windows, arched doorways and hand-painted ceramic tiles.
In California, Pancho's is known as a "festive spot for Mexican food and drinks" and also for its jam packed interior decor, with small fountains on their patio, twelve foot tall doors "salvaged from a castle in Spain" and a "wrought iron sculpture of famous bandido, Emiliano Zapata."
Keeping their Manhattan Beach traditions, nightly entertainment will be offered in the Las Vegas "Cantina area." Already booked, a weekly comedy night Hosted by Danno Carter, similar in format to the restaurant's Monday night events.
