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!

The First National Bobs Day

May 2nd, 2012

Burritos, bursting at the seams, free to anyone named Bob.

May 1st, 2012 marked the first official National Bobs day. Pancheros is leading the way in the fight to save the name Bob. If you haven't been fully educated about the initiative, no worries, just head over to our page at savebobs.org, or on Facebook, and watch the video of our friend Bob explaining the current state of the Bob economy. 

But, Pancheros decided it wasn't enough to just raise awareness about the plight of the name Bob, oh no... we needed to do our part by giving each and every Bob a hot meal; A burrito, to be more specific. 

Ergo, National Bob day was born. On May 1st, anyone named Bob, Rob, Robert, Bobbie, Boberta or Roberina could walk into a Pancheros and proudly proclaim "I am Bob, give me burrito!" and after a few awkward glances from other dining patrons, they would receive a FREE burrito!

What would this world be had we listened to the great musical musings of Steve Marley, would Mark Dole proudly run for president? And lets be honest, Rick Dylan just sounds ridiculous. Throughout history, Bobs have made a difference in the lives of others, and we are here to fight the fight that needs fighting! Every day Pancheros relies on a Bob that is near and dear to our hearts. With Bob's help, we've torn down the walls that once stood between meat and rice, between beans and salsa. Ingredients can now co-conspire as one. Bob has single-handedly revolutionized burrito building forever.

Below is a collection of Bobs and their burritos. A girl hugging a Bob with a burrito. Also, a photo of a burrito taken by Bob.

     

Were you one of the fortunate Bobs to get a burrito? Let us know how the sweet taste of FREEdom was.

 

Do The Evolution

March 6th, 2012

We have been rocking and rolling lately with some very exciting updates. This fancy new website you are clicking around on? Only like a week old.. But, along with the unveiling of this website last week, we also introduced some tweaks to the Pancheros logo marks. This new blog seemed like a great way to share some thoughts.

THE WEBSITE

Our goals with the website: Fun and Functionality. Visiting a website should be fun. We aimed to make you giggle a few times, maybe even lol. Burritos are serious business, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun while servering you up with burrito goodness. One of the key functions I want to point out is the ability to easily navigate someone to the nearest Pancheros burrito. After all, you don't want to be the one thing standing between a hardcore burrito lover and their Pancheros burrito. With that safety for the public in mind, we devised a Pancheros store locater. Now, whether you are on a smartphone, or a big, bulky computer, you can instantly geo-locate your position and see the Pancheros closest to you. Geo-location not your thing? No problem, search by city, state or zip to plot your nearest Pancheros. Go ahead, give it a try! 

THE LOGO

Think evolution, not revolution. We are a twenty year old company with some seriously great roots. We wouldn't want to run away from that even if we could. Visually, though, we found this to be a good time to visit a few details. The Pancheros script was updated to a thicker typeface, but still retained that unique, handwritten quality. The emblem that sits above the Pancheros script is a bold tribute to the one and only Bob the Tool. Oh, Bob, a burrito is not a burrito without your delicate touch. We have built a new standard for burritos using this little guy, and he needed some recognition.
