The slivered-pie-slice of a building at 7th and Passyunk now houses Pancho’s Grill, which opened last month with irregular hours and no liquor license.
The restaurant is from the owner of the Baja Room/Pico de Gallo, which closed at 15th and South a few months back. It actually posted the same drink menu in the window.
A drink menu, though, huh? Neighbors told The Insider that the restaurant was operating without the proper zoning and no liquor license. Hmm, sounds illegal. Owner owner Michael Ortega still owns the Baja Room liquor license but apparently hasn’t transferred it. The old location at 15th and South, by the way, is going to be a coffee shop, says the Philadelphia Real Estate Blog.
We’ve stopped by a couple times and reached out to the owner to try to get some more information but haven’t had any luck. We can’t even find a website or a Facebook page. Maybe they should take a little time to get their house in order.
Has anyone out there stopped in yet?
