Senor Pancho's opens in Soldotna

A few years ago Pancho Rodriguez brought a new experience in Mexican restaurants to the Peninsula where the Funky Monkey had been located in Kenai known as Playa Azul. It quickly became a dining destination for those who loved authentic Mexican cuisine.

Now having sold Playa Azul Rodriguez has opened a new restaurant in Soldotna next door to Napa Auto Parts called Senor Pancho’s. The new restaurant features a south of the boarder flare with authentic Mexican art and furniture imported directly from Mexico.

“I want to invite all my friends to visit Senor Pancho’s where we have made more salsas for our popular Salsa Bar. Now all our friends from Kenai and Soldotna and folks on their way to and from Homer will know where we are and can stop in for a taco, burrito or sope and our special Mexican ice drinks,” said Senor Pancho. “We brought the furniture and art directly from the state of Jalisco to accompany our authentic fresh menu of beef tostadas and original items from our menu that you won’t find anywhere else on the Peninsula. Our recipes come from my family’s restaurant in California where I learned to make things only with fresh ingredients. The only thing that is frozen here are the customers when they come in from outside in the winter, everything inside is always fresh-fresh-fresh,” he said.

Senor Pancho’s offers pick up service by calling 907-260-7777 and soon will be offering free delivery to your home, office or party. “Your seafood burrito was one of my best meals in Alaska!” posted Melissa Wooton on her Facebook page. “This place is outstanding the food is great the service is awesome! No one makes better Mexican foods then Señor Pancho’s Restaurant!” posted Elizabeth Mullins.
