New eats! Pacho’s Mexican Grill, located at 1650 Eatonton Road, is opened where Sancho’s used to be located! So anyway, Pablo Galue is the new owner and he also operates a Pacho’s in Covington that attracts a bunch of folks from Morgan County! Honey now we have our very own! Ok so I just had to pop over there just now to check it all out and spoke to District Manager Tony Rosas to get the scoop! Ok so the menu is similar to Sancho’s but it’s now been greatly expanded and includes fab items like Churrasco (a grilled rib-eye steak with Chimichurri sauce on the side), Tapatio Soup (Pacho’s famous soup recently featured in the Atlanta Journal/Constitution), Carnitas in Pibil Sauce, Seafood Enchiladas and all of your favorite Mexican dishes! Tony wanted me to tell y’all that everything is made fresh at the restaurant! Get over there today and eat! I’ll see you there!
