Method of Preparation

  1. To begin with the recipe, first whisk olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, and black pepper in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Then you need to add ground to this mixture so that the marinade coats the steak. Then squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours overnight.
  2. Then heat a large skillet over medium heat; add oil to it and then add beef to it. Now cook and stir beef in a hot skillet until all liquid is absorbed, which will take you about 15 to 20 minutes. Your Beef fajitas are ready.
  3. To assemble the antojito, in a bowl, place 1 layer of corn tortilla chips. Add 1 layer of beef fajitas on it. Top it with nacho cheddar cheese, cooked and mashed refried beans, and guacamole.

Had dinner last night, upon arrival order taker greeted us. We ordered some panchos and a taco casero with a drink. Drink station was clean and I served myself the Jamaica drink, very refreshing. Restaurant clean all around. Order was taken to the table. Panchos were done delicious and well served.  The taco casero was the same.  Great service overall and good was on point. Highly recommended!!!

It may not look like much, but by God this is the best Mexican fast food chain I've ever experienced it. So good, I went back the next day to try most of the menu items. Between their pirata, tacos, quesadillas, panchos, queso, salsa, and more... I'm addicted.

What do I have to do to get one of these in the Lake Mary/Sanford FL area?!

Seriously. So good, I'm going to go through withdrawal.

We love this place. I frequent it in Laredo when traveling and will sometimes eat the panchos twice a week as they have a location close to the hotel I frequent. It can be a little pricey but the quality and quantity of food never disappoints.

It’s authentic, but then again it’s not. They serve Fajitas, but they aren’t exactly TexMex. They offer a burning hot chile salsa, but pair it with creamy tomatillo and fresh tomato salsas, and pico — all available on a condiment bar with all the chips you can eat, cilantro, whole and sliced jalapenos, and a couple other things I can’t remember.

Taco Palenque was founded by Don Pancho, the same guy who created El Pollo Loco. Both restaurants are good, but I prefer Taco Palenque. But then, I’d like anything with a little less chicken and a little more beef.

TP is a fast food restaurant that offers good quality Mexican food at a reasonable price. And that’s all you really need to know.
