Despite some hard lobbying and outright begging it appears Lafayette residents eager to bring a new Mexican food offering to town will remain hungry as owners of the venerable Los Panchos restaurants have announced they’re bringing their latest restaurant to Pleasant Hill.
The 200 block of Golf Club Road to be more precise.

The Fernandez family opened their lynchpin location in 1991 and have done quite well, opening another location in Danville and, briefly, one in San Ramon. Recipes featuring the family’s popular mole sauce often keep patrons lined up out the door.
It’s not immediately known what will happen to the flagship Los Panchos once its latest iteration begins operation.
