A Better Built Blog from your friends at Pancheros Mexican Grill

The Boards the Word

October 3rd, 2013

We have recently started unrolling a new menu system in all Pancheros restaurants. 

Although your burrito itself hasn't changed, the way you order it will now look a little different.

Bob Gone Wild

June 6th, 2013

Bob works hard. There is no denying that. This guy mixes up thousands of burritos on a daily basis, and you never hear the guy complain, not even once.

Because of this, we thought Bob deserved a little time off. Break lose. Let off some steam. But Bob needed a little help figuring out what to do with his time off. Thus, Bob Gone Wild.

We asked you, everyday Pancheros lovers, to take Bob with you after visiting your favorite burrito place, and introduce him to somewhere awesome; let Bob go wild! We couldn't just let you say you were going wild with Bob though, oh no, we needed some hard proof. Photo proof.

For taking a photo of/with Bob and submitting it to our Facebook app you are eligible to win a year of free burritos, and a hot air balloon ride with Bob! (so romantic!) You still have an entire week to submit your photos to win a burrito-filled hot air balloon ride. So what are you waiting for, grab a Bob and go wild! (But keep it PG. Ah, who are we kidding, PG-13 is probably okay, too)

Check out some of our submissions!

 

Thank You From Dance Marathon

May 7th, 2013

Every year for the past seven years, some of our Iowa restaurants have teamed up with Dance Marathon to support the Children's Miracle Network. Dance Marathon is a student-run organization that works to support patients and their families being treated at University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. It is a year round organization that culminates with a 24-hour Big Event in February. The Big Event honors children’s fight against cancer and celebrates life. Pancheros has helped to support Dance Marathon by providing thousands of burritos to their Big Event each year in February. Students dance anywhere from 8-24 hours to raise money and believe me, dancing for 24 hours can really work up an appetite that sometimes only a burrito can satisfy...

Below is a note from the Children's Mericale Network at UI Children's Hospital thanking Pancheros for our partnership with them. Plus, check out some photos from previous Dance Marathon events!

CMN at UI Children’s Hospital is so thankful to have the support of Pancheros.  Over the past seven years, Pancheros has generously donated more than 13,000 burritos to participants of multiple dance marathons in the state.  It is simple math, when dance marathons do not have to pay for the meals that they feed their dancers, they are able to make a larger donation to the hospital for the kids, FTK!
If Pancheros were to sell the burrito’s that have been donated to dance marathons that support UI Children’s Hospital, it would equal about $80,000! WOW!!  Pancheros stands for something alright, they stand FOR THE KIDS! Thank you, Pancheros!

 

 

A little fire on your Burrito

March 11th, 2013

We can all agree that burritos are the perfect food, right? But, why stop with perfection? We are happy to announce the addition of two brand new, proprietary hot sauces to all Pancheros restaurants.

Each of these hot sauces adds it's own special balance of heat and flavor to your burrito.

GREENADE

It is my pleasure to introduce to you - Greenade - our green hot sauce. With a flavor palette derived mostly from citrus and jalapeños, this hot sauce is going to add a burst of flavor to your burrito, with a hint of heat. 

FLAVOLCANO

Where there is smoke, there is fire. Our second unique hot sauce utilizes seven different peppers for the perfect combination of heat, smoke, and flavor. This little guy seems friendly at first, but after a generous dabs on your burrito you may start to feel that heat.

While you're chowing down on a burrito with one of these delicious new sauces, be sure to check out some of the fun details on the bottles. We have a proprietary heat scale that ranges from "zzz" to "OMFG" (Oh My! Fiery Goodness) and also proper hot sauce use.

If you are feeling a bit adventerous on your next visit to Pancheros, grab a bottle of Greenade or Flavolcano and pour some on!
