No doubt that La Tiendita is the best TRUE Mexican. I don't know anyone who has tried it and doesn't like it, except the Taco Bell/Tex-Mexers that don't know any better.
As for Pancho's, I admit that I used to go to the one on Florida about once a year. I always regretted it afterwards, because it felt like I had just swallowed a lead weight when I was done eating. It was usually crowded when I went.
When Pancho's on Siegen opened, it was like a religious event. There was a line out the door and an hour-long wait. The hype died down quickly.
