Reviews from Pancho and Lefty’s Happy Hour in Kailua-Kona, HI

“Came Pancho and Lefty’s to eat while in Kona. Fabiola attended us and she gave excellent service. As well the food was great. Highly recommend!”

Rachel P., January 2024

“Pancho and Leftys is a good go to for everyone on Alii Drive Downtown Kona. So accommodating. They really don’t want to disappoint and bend over backwards and try to accommodate. “

Larry G., January 2024

“Favorite place to eat in Kona! I’m planning a Kona trip this spring and already looking forward to a Pancho’s margarita!”

Emily T., January 2024

“Just went for micheladas and ceviche. The ceviche, while not necessarily traditional, was wayyy better than the first batch we had at another place in town. The chips were a bit oily but the server was very accommodating and atmosphere was pleasant. We’ll be back for sure.”

Caitlyn C., January 2024

“A good Mexican restaurant with everything you’d expect, but the main reason to come here is that it’s one of the few places that’s not a greasy spoon serving hamburgers.”

Greg M., December 2023

“My wife and I arrived at Pancho and Lefty’s Cantina around 2pm. We were out walking around the street food truck festival they had going on. Quite a lengthy section of street closed off to vehicles. Very nice. We were thirsty, and had a bit of time before our tour of the nearby palace. We walked upstairs and were greeted right away.

We sat outside, overlooking the street and the food truck festival. Umbrella shaded, it was a perfect spot. It was not busy during our visit. We had a margarita, and shared some chips and salsa. Both were very good. And no skimping on the alcohol either. We had a great visit. I would love to visit again to try some food.”

Chris C., December 2023
