Wife and I caught supper at Pancho Villa this weekend. It had been awhile since I'd been there, and the food is still top notch.
I had the pork tamal for an appetizer and the shrimp soup for entree.
I could have used a bit more crispness from the tamale, but the flavors were nicely done, and it was $2.
As for the soup, the broth was complicated without being overbearing, and had a nutty richness to it. The shrimp had just the right amount of bounce, and the carrots and celery (while strange choices) weren't soggy. This was a winner all around.
Wife had chicken tacos and a side of rice. The chicken was a bit dry (even the dark meat), though the rice was a nice surprise, and again the flavors were solid.
All told, dinner for two, with beer and soda (and leftovers), for $26. Pancho Villa remains one of the best dining deals in Minneapolis.
