Pachanga Mexicana is great!
I arrived for dinner only to find the restaurant fairly busy for a Tuesday evening. I was promptly greeted and lead to my table, provided the standard chips and salsa, as well as hot sauce, and ask what I’d like to drink.
The Horchata is a consistent go-to whenever I dine at a Mexican or Tex-Mex style restaurant, and to be honest Pachanga Mexicana makes some of the best Horchata I’ve ever had. Even better, their large cup is literally gigantic allowing one to enjoy the sweet nectar of the rice gods while they await their food, and long after!!
Fajita Burrito at Pachanga Mexicana
I ordered the Fajita Burrito with Carnitas, exactly as it comes on the menu. (see menu images at bottom of post)
It came out a touch hotter than edible for my like, which gave me some time to snap some photos, chop it in half, and get some photos of the steamy melted cheese carnitas and bean goodness. Needless to say, the burrito was one for the books. As a self proclaimed Burrito Aficionado, I would say the burrito game at Pachanga Mexican is on point for sure.
The chips and Salsa were on point, and the hot sauce definitely left me sweating a bit, so be warned! But do know, I loved it! This was an excellent stop after our previous review of Hot Brew Bistro in Fortuna CA. We will continue to cover restaurants that are performing on a high standard like these.

All in all Pachanga Mexicana was excellent, and the location, right at the northern tip of Eureka, California on HWY 101 North side, it’s super convenient for me to stop at whenever I leave Eureka and need a snack before I head back to McKinleyville to the Lost Coast Populist Headquarters.
