Panchito's at ABIA

I got off a late flight last night, and as I strolled towards baggage claim, trying to walk slowly enough to get there as the starting buzzer's sound is fading into echoes, I scanned the signs in the food court only to see a Panchito's sign where there always used to be an outpost of Matt's el Rancho. I'm pretty sure the change happened in the last week.

While it would be unusual for an airport to be home to the most delicious chow in town, there are times when by happenstance or poor planning one must eat while waiting for a flight to board. It pays to know what the best bets are in advance. In that spirit, I ask whether anyone has tried the place? Has it changed in more than name? Is it associated with a business on the outside?

The roll-down grating was firmly locked as I passed, but in the interest of research, I may need to try it myself soon. Guidance is, however, always welcome.
